" ...  Overall, it's good for its price, has excellent battery life, and is as comfortable to wear as people say it is. ... –And, for me at least, these problems really negate all the good things (like battery life, style, convenience of notifications).  ...  "

I will gladly pay top dollar for an app with these capabilities! ... - wish it had native support for Endomondo health tracking ... Still getting used to the Mi Fit application and searching for good 3rd party apps.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The app works fine, but I've found that keeping it running all of the time tends to drain the battery on my phone faster. ... I occasionally use the other apps on the watch (weather, compass, etc), and they seem to work fine. ... The phone app is also easy to use and provides enough workout details to satisfy my needs: pace data, run map, HR data, etc.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Also I was pleasantly surprised to find it works with FB messenger, Whatsapp, etc., not just SMS text. ... Simply opening the watch app on the phone resyncs it, and generally you'll open it at least once a day to look at something anyway, but occasionally I don't and then I don't get notifications from my phone on the watch.  ...  "
