4.0 out of 5 stars Simplicity that works, 4 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased for use in indoor football and basketball to measure HR, and needed a waterproof watch for swimming.

Functionality is perfect and the android app is clear and easy to use.

Watch is comfortable, display is a bit 1980s but the watch is very easy to use for activities. Synch to hrm quickly and to the app. Had suunto watches before, constantly let down by connectivity, this has been great.

Battery life is excellent, although I do have mobile notifications turned off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value until they stopped working, 3 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As described, connected quickly and fit snugly in the ear. Sound is fine for what I use it for (Netflix etc) on train commute. Great value.

Magnetic hold when not storing buds isn't strong, easily disconnect when in pocket. Although guessing a stronger magnet could impact the speakers.

Had problem with original set, excellent customer service. Quick replacements that work great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating set-up, do night before if it's for the kids!, 27 Sept. 2016
In the pack are 2 important leaflets. Blue one that gives 1month EA Access (scrub silver box on back for code) and another is obvious Fifa17.

It took 5 hours to download (a whopper 40gb!!), so be patient and install EA Access first if before 27th Sept to be able to play Fifa17 before official release date (29th). Slightly mad it's not pre-installed..spent half a day just setting up the box, so if it's for kids gift, set it up atleast the night before to avoid disappointment.

The XBOX Live trial was equally painful to prove it was working. Despite confirmation in the settings subscription was active, I had to contact Microsoft to fix an issue on their side as it clearly wasn't working.

To share XBOX Live on the console make sure you set as 'My Home Xbox' on the user profile settings.

I'm still muddling through with the constant nagging to setup an EA Account etc. even though I have a 1 month trial working without the need for this... but I'm a little done with having to go set-up more accounts with more passwords blah blah

Game play of FIFA17 has been excellent now it is working (initially stopped with a network error (why it needed network for single player mode?) at half time during first play of Charity Shield match and also got fixated showing me on Hulls stadium on second game, so had to be rebooted), hoping it stays stable once all the 1 month trials run-out.

These toothbrush have a lifetime of about 2 years...had 3 now. Last only one lasted 15months before rust started coming out?! Previous ones have died as rechargeable battery life has gone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent accuracy, but let down by app. Better value options available, 6 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used a Suunto Quest with HRM for sometime, I wanted a HRM that had bluetooth to link with Strava and also a memory function for indoor football to replace the Quest.

Firstly the readings were impressive; matched the Sunnto chest strap perfectly, it also linked-up easily with Strava. So if you want it for just that, then this is a very good option, worthy of 4 stars (never a 5 as it's expensive for essentially a BLE HRM).

I used it for indoor football to take advantage of the "memory" function..For that you need to use the Mio app....this worked fine as well. So why the 3 stars? The app is very basic (you can't export your data, stats are thin, HRM graph is tiny etc). Other things that might bother you: it needs recharging weekly, to get best results you need to position it slightly higher up the arm than a regular watch.

In the end I returned and swapped it with the Suunto Smart Sensor (not the old Dual), which is half the price, tiny, Suunto can automatically exports to various fitness sites, strava, movescount etc. This HRM doesn't need recharging every week, Suunto movescount website provides superb detail on stats (VO2 etc) and can also link independently to Strava as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cam, 1 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Had this running on Wi-Fi and writing to NAS within minutes. Found the web interface easy to use for set-up and calibration, selected motion detection area etc, appropriate sensitive values (no issues with rain or the odd leaf zipping by in the wind), works perfectly, impressed with Android app software as well. Image quality is superb in both day & night mode.

Later I tried to set it up on Synologys Surveillance Station, while the software picked-up the cam (using YouCam drivers) and image it always remained in constant recording (unlike other cam I have, dLink brand). So no success on that piece, but not a showstopper for me.

Only grumble is that it would be quite easy for someone to take off the wall without the need of a screwdriver (just cut the power cable)...
