Do not kid yourself. On every update of the Amazfit App, I need to reset the bluetooth unlocking because for some reason, it never works anymore after an app update. After the recent watch update, I was forced to unpair and repair the watch for it to be able to finish the update and actually be able to use the watch. But… while I usually last about 5 days on 1 battery charge with contiuous heartbeat tracking on, I can suddenly not reach 2 days anymore. It seems the GPS is constantly on and cannot be turned off. There are always problems for the user on every app or watch update. It looks like not one update is properly tested before being released. Keep away from Huami Amazfit watches or apps, if you want to enjoy your time using a smartwatch or an activity tracker.
does t have cellular
Hi Dave, thank's for the review,
I wanna know if the smart watch is confortable while sleeping, because i think it's not very small like a miband 2 whiche i carry always in my hand.
And if you use it as a basic smart watch without heart rating, gprs or apps notifications, how the battery life will last ?
There is also a website where you can download thousands of faces for this watch and I found that pretty amazing (one of the reasons I'll buy this soon :D)
Fine for those who don't do actual exercise, enjoy fiddling with technology and love self-affirmation. My step counter picked up more steps when I was playing Xbox than it did when I was outdoors. I spent more time updating it and reading blogs to sort out problems, than I did wearing it. And after 2 weeks, just the sweat from my wrist was enough to corrode the internals and kill it. No waterproofing is a glaring omission for a so-called 'sport' watch.
I am also WWE fan like you
Can you please tell me if i should buy this pace or samsung s2 smartwatch… nutshell which is better….
Looks all wrong to big and just looks very plastic to me and at 140 just to much money for a plastic watch
No vibration or notification info. Dissapointed
How does it handle notifications and voice calls?
I'm looking for a watch that handles notifications and allows you to reply to whatsapp etc. Also one that handles phone calls via Bluetooth. Any suggestions?
Fit 2 is out, why review first version, please review the AMAZFIT 2
Looks like a cool product but you only did half of a review… what features does the app provide and how well does it work? Also, how durable / waterproof is it and what's the display quality?
Kindly review the Xiaomi Amazefit Pace 2…
Xiaomi does make some awesome affordable devices, and this smartwatch is no different. Loved the design and the battery backup.
