When I first got this I didn't like it, but I gave it a shot and now I feel lost without it. The positives are the calorie counter, step counter, and that it buzzes me when I get messages. It is interesting to know about my sleep cycle, although it isn't particularly helpful. The calorie counter is cool, because I know how many calories I burn with my workout and then can base my intake on that to maintain my weight - which in the app there is a food intake/ calorie keeper. It's handy that a lot of the foods can be scanned in by their bar code. The step counter is good, because it is motivational. The message notification is convenient, because I like to leave my phone on vibrate. The negatives are that it doesn't recognize all my workouts. It will for the elliptical, and walking if it's brisk and for long enough. My Pilates and weights though, nope. It is very irritating to realize I didn't start my workout timer after I am already 20-30 minutes into my workout. The food intake on the app could use some work. My frequent list should recognize my frequent meals obviously, but it doesn't do a very good job. I haven't drank coffee for breakfast in months, but yet it's still on there and my daily oatmeal isn't??? As for the message notification, it appears that you can only be notified for 3 things? So, I have my FB messenger, my phone for calls and my calendar reminders. Sometimes the buzz for my calendar doesn't work, and I really wished I could opt to have my text messages buzz me too, but there's only an option for 3 notification buzzes. Aesthetically it is kind of bulky. I like the purple band enough and it's easy to clean, but I wanted the rose gold to be shiny not the cheap looking matte it is. My last wish would be that it charged quicker. If I am going to have to charge it every couple to few days then I'd like it to charge quicker, otherwise I am losing out on my steps being counted or my sleep being recorded. Neither are super important, but why buy the watch if you didn't want to track these things?
