You get what you pay for

Well where to begin... This accessory works, but not as it leads you to believe.
First, the instructions suck. To "install" the notification file on your phone you must have a file explorer app on your phone. There is no way to install it just by putting the file on your phone. Open you're, explorer app once you connect your phone to your computer and download the file, then install the notification file from there.
By looking at the pictures, you assume the touchscreen has a bit of functionality to it... it really doesnt. The cover image that shows the 3 icons under the time are false. The only way to access anything is through the menu. There are no shortcuts on the home screen. Another seriously annoying feature is that once the screen goes off, it's off. Every time you want to check the time or check for messages you must hit the power button. This makes checking the time a 2 handed operation. It may not sound like much, but it gets old really quick.
This watch has plenty of very annoying nuances such as this. The ring tones are crap, not that mine ever work anyways. I hear my phone notify me of a mesage, but my watch never does. I can turn on the watch and see I have a new notification, but no ring tones or notification ever gets sent from the watch itself.
The watch is cheap made, if that wasn't obvious by the price. My screen glass is too big, and it's just a matter of time before it gets snagged on something and breaks off. There is no attention to detail or precision.
My personal conclusion: the product works, and will get some cool points from anyone who you show it off to, but it is what it is... a cheap made knock-off. If you're okay with that, then no worries; get it and you'l be fine. If you want something with usability and functionality, don't waste your time or money.
