Good bit of kit but oh that strap and poor battery life
2 June 2018
I think this is a great bit of kit, well designed and thought out. It does what it says on the tin - keeps track of your steps and activities. It tracks your sleep very well too. I like the minimalist display. I don't need a full readout all thru the day. Just a sync in the morning and then last thing. I like the waterproof element. But it does have two flaws. The big one is the naff strap. Why go to the extreme bother of making a chic design and then stick it in a piece of plastic, front mounted, so any flexing of the wrist will cause it to pop out? Surely, rear mounting it would have been the rather obvious answer!??? The second flaw is the battery life. It did not come with a battery, which is a shame but I bought some expensive Duracell ones and it lasted less than a month. I didn't do any alerts or alarms. I turned off the buzz if you get a txt etc just the twice sync a day and nout else. I'm prepared to give it another go and will report back but six months it does not do! I've raised a support enquiry and will report back on what they say and how good this service is.
