I've been looking for a long time for a watch which would allow me different faces and to switch between analog and digital ones. I really didn't want most of the other features offered in a typical smart watch. Just multiple faces. However, it seems that the only way to get that one feature is to go the smart watch route,and so, here I am.
I looked at many different watches before selecting this brand / model. I rejected the Moro 360 because of that dead sliver of screen at the bottom of the face. It was incomprehensible that someone thought that would be either a feature or at least OK with everyone, so that one went out in the first round. Likewise out in the first round were the Apple Watch (square, too pricey and too limited in device connectivity), the Pebble (dislike the general design and the size) and most of the LG line.
Surviving to the second round were the LG Urbane and the Samsung Gear S2 Classic. Note the absence of the Huawei on the list of finalists. Between the time of my initial search and when I had resigned myself to a smart watch with features I didn't really want many other brands and models of smart watch had been released.
As I reviewed my list of finalists one last time before committing to one of them I bevpca,e aware of this relatively new entry in the field. This watch very neatly eliminated each objection I had to the others, namely shape, size, price, and both iOS and Android compatibility. By the time I finished wondering who the heck Huawei was, I had been sold on every aspect of this watch.
Overall my experience with the watch has been very positive. I actually do use some of the "smart" features like calendar notices, timers, and step counting. My main feature is still the flexibility of watch faces and that's where I think there's a very good basic set of selections available to choose from.
That will bring me to my main negative for the watch. That list of faces does not include Facer when using a paired iOS device. Facer allows the creation of additional watch faces or to install faces created by others. As an iOS user this option is not available to me. I know you all want me to stop whining and go get a real Android phone. Quite simply put, I don't even want to have to use this with a phone. I understand that there are things that I can't do without a phone. But choosing different watch faces shouldn't be one of them. I should still have an option to download faces directly onto the watch. Most especially I want Star Trek faces. But alas, I cannot get them without major strangeness done to my iPad.
In general this is a very nice watch. I just wish I could use the Star Trek watch faces available for it.
