    A throwback to old fitness watches, overpriced

    My wife used this watch as she is fairly active in the fitness community (more so than I) so after spending about a week using it these are her pros and cons on the watch. Pros: The watch is quick to charge and holds a charge for a fairly lengthy amount of time, fits many wrist sizes and comfortable, large face easy to read, reliable connection to iPhone and gps, texts and other alerts from the iPhone come through the watch face. A lot of functions to utilize on the watch. Cons: The Watch doesn't awake when turn up wrist unless in direct light (like Apples watch does), heart rate doesn't alway register and is not very reliable, doesn't allow ability to track calories and food, app not easy to track activitys (watch has some activities but fairly limited in scope), sleep tracker not accurate, menus difficult to navigate, many functions on the watch are too buried to get to, needs a PC to update firmware/software. Overall my wife thought it was a decent watch but it is likely overpriced to comparable types of watches by about $75 to $100. This is also not a fitness watch but an exercise watch and by that it doesn't do many of the other functions that a fitbit type watch would do. It's primarily a nice watch that will function to track some physical exercises, or a throwback to watches of previous years before fitbit type watches became popular. I cannot recommend this watch at the current MSRP but if you can find it on sale and/or are aware of its limitations it may be worthwhile of a purchase.

    This fitness tracker is sub par. Upon opening it it looked good. But from the moment I put it on I realized that this was going to be a struggle to use. First the back lighting is bad. And the screen is tough to see. Next all the calculations are in metric and you need to download the app to change any of it. Lastly and most importantly the inaccuracies of the tracker itself are enormous. I had over 10k steps by noon on the first day: sitting at a desk! Apparently any movement of the arm will register steps. That was the straw that broke the camels back. If that can be so inaccurate I cannot expect any other aspect of this tracker to be accurate whatsoever. For the price of this tracker there are plenty of other alternative ones on the market that do a much better job. I would recommend trying out another option, and passing on this one.
