2.0 out of 5 stars Initial failure and poor customer service, May 22, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Initial monitor failed to connect to any bluetooth application after 3 days of use. Returned to Amazon. Second did not connect either. Replaced battery and all is well, at least for the first week. Beyond that, we will see. Contacted manufacturer about battery replacement and they basically said tough luck. Very poor attitude.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, horrid execution., November 8, 2014
Concept is solid but company is inept at execution. As to the good, the bulbs fit all my applications, are very bright, and I am not at all bothered by the heat. The bad is their software engineers and the resutant app. Examples: each time they do a firmware update on the bulbs, I have to reset each one independantly as the update causes a loss of wi-fi connection that can only be fixed with a reset. With 5 bulbs, this is a 20 minute process. The documentation is sketchy at best. After working long and hard and working with their customer service (who really don't know much about the product) I managed the integration with Nest. Actualy, had a Nest smoke detector alarm and the bulbs did nothing. When I alterted LIFX to this potentially dangerous situation, they sent me their legal disclaimer that says they are not responsible if their product fails!
The app is poor and QA worse. Sign into the cloud and leave the cloud page and you must resign in. Talk to CS, nothing. Cloud constatny looses connection to wi-fi network and you get a message about "no route'. Ask CS and they are clueless. Set up a bad location and you can't delete it. You get one alarm...multiples not allowed. Geofence works frequently but not always. I don't think this company will ever get there software act up to speed. This is a very expensive proposition with poor execution. I would never rebuy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Activity Tracker Available, October 29, 2014
Bluetooth connectivity to iPhone 6 and connect app flawless. Now preview all emails and notifications on my wrist. Setup very easy and find sleep, steps, distance (I did set stride length), heart rate, activities, etc. accurate and as advertised. No quality problems with device or clasp for me and I wear it 24/7.

Only improvement I can think of: multiple alarms (but would seem a simple software update). As to battery, better than I expected given constant notifications, auto on, and long runs. I've had them all (Up, Fitbit Flex & Force, etc. this is best by far and they allow connectivity with HealthKit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best sport earbuds on the market, period., August 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have tried almost, if not every, sport earbud on the market. I need on/off volume controls on the earbud as I use them for running and can't continually pull out my device. These are truly sweat proof. Every other brand lost functionality of the volume control due to sweat. So, 5 stars for that. Fit is a bit difficult to achieve (I use one different sized ear cushions for each ear), but once you get it right, they never budge. I suggest any reviewer with fit problems, just don't read the manual well. I'm not an audiophile but the sounds seems great.

Cons: I can't even get 4 hours of battery life. Not close to the 8 advertised.

Some skip, especially when touching the music device...why. don't know. If you work out, this is the earbud for you. Pros far outweigh the cons and 2x better than any other sport earbud on the market.

Well done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not sweat resistant, June 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought primarily for volume/music control. Unit advertised as for athletes. One 6K run in moderate conditions and the volume controls shorted out. Absolutely, hard to believe there was any QC. If you sweat at all and find volume control useful, these are not for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value...will keep your hands warm., February 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great gloves. These are now my primary cold weather gloves. Use internal shell when temps are above 0 and both when below 0 or wet. Only downside is that the gloves do not have a built in pocket for warmers and inserts tore a bit at the thumb. Easy to sew repair. Highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, December 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bamboo skin is of high quality. Fit is much better than the picture shows as there is an equi-distant frame on all sides not just the top and bottom as shown. The apple logo cutout is perfect. I would have given this 5 stars based on quality and ease of application, however, delivery, for some reason took over one month and 6 communications with the seller and Amazon. This could have been an anomaly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great with only one exception, December 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros: lightweight, solid closure, wake/sleep function, resposive keyboard, bluetooth connection automatic, ...almost perfect.

Con: magnetic closure off about 1/4 inch. So when you close, the iPad overlaps. You can then align by force. Returned the first but second was the same. If a 1/4 doesn't bother you, an excellent option.

Recommendation: get an armor shield of some type for the back of the iPad so it doesn't get scratched.
