I didn't know what to expect, but I liked the price. Once it arrived, I loved the watch. I had a Fitbit so I miss the instant gratification of being able to see Steps real time. I also miss the notifications. I don't miss the look and feel of the Fitbit. The watch is clean,classic, and stylish. There are some functionalities that are retained, but it will require some work and adjustment to become accustomed to how to maximize the features. Steps are retrieved on the app once you look at your phone. Notifications are available for certain VIPs; you can set up six. You can also set up a check for steps but you'll have to become accustomed to reading and understanding the dial actions.The hands will spin to points on the face of the watch and those zones are the information sources. So you can get a percentage of your steps completed 0, 25, 50, 75, 100 based on the goal set. If the watch is divided into four quads counting clockwise, that section is in Quad 4. Dates are quads 1-3. Color zone for notifications is also quad 4.The instructions weren't very useful, but I looked at a couple of YouTube vids and read some tech reviews and figured it out pretty quickly. No point in reinventing the wheel, I got as much of a head start as I could from other users. The sync process was extremely easy but you'll need to download the app in order to get started. The battery is showed on the app as having full life so I'll see how long it lasts before it needs replacing. I opted to pick phone locator as one of my shortcuts. I was able to locate the phone, but it can't be in silent mode. I was able too pause and resume play
for streaming music from the watch. I really like the option to save multiple versions of Customized Settings that maximize what the dial functions can accomplish depending on the situation. So when I'm on vacation and don't expect/want notifications, I can save a version of the device short cut that uses the dial to interact with the camera. I just got the watch today so not sure how that will work out, I'm just thinking through the possibilities. Long story short, this is a nice looking watch that keeps me relatively connected while tracking steps.One of my few impulse purchases that panned out.
