A real fitness watch with some smart features

Cannot fault

Great Sports And Hiking Watch

 

ed as watch - battery life depends on number of functions engaged - full tracking gps will limit battery life to about 20 hours. Easily changed to any 26mm wide band you like. Useful Bluetooth notifications link to phone when you want to be notified....

Very Nice

 

I purchased this about 4 weeks ago. So far I'm very impressed. The watch it quite large in both height and width. The height is the worst problem. It catches on everything. Otherwise I'm loving it. The best function is the notifications from my phone...
