Brilliant fitness tracker, strap not so good
on 6 August 2018
I've really enjoyed using my this product and it has largely 'just worked', easy to pair to your phone and easy to use, it requires two apps one which runs entirely in the background (without any UI) and the companion app. I think if you had more Huawei devices the background app is shared which is useful.
It had a few software issues with the companion app when I first had it, mostly to do with which apps could push notifications (some would crash the companion app, some just wouldn't push), these have all been polished out now and it works well.
Battery life is excellent unless you are using the GPS tracking, under normal use with all the functions turned on included all day heart rate monitoring and advanced sleep tracking I can easily get 2 weeks use, however, if I use it for tracking a bike ride I can get at most 3 hours from a full charge and more likely 2 hours.
However, less than 6 months in the strap will no longer fasten to the body, after a about a month it was showing signs of swelling as per other reviews on Amazon. This got worse to the point that the top half came away from the plastic clip it should fasten too but it still fastened okay. However, this morning it has given up all together and I'm trying to get a replacement sorted as I can't wear it anymore.
