OK read the 'other' thread and this may be old stock that can't always hold charge. Not buying. *phew*.

This should get heated. Did at £79.
Tempting. So tempting.

Heat added!

In case anyone is wondering, as I was, the button at the two o'clock position isn't for a stopwatch function. When the button's pressed the second hand moves to show much charge the battery has.

how do these compare to a fitbit?
Qman
Bossworld
Great bit of kit and heat added. If you can cope with a small, purple strap (the large one is excessively large IMO), the previous TomTom outlet deal to save £8 is still available, so would work out to be about £45 posted.
Can you elaborate please

The link to the thread someone else posted contains a code for £8 off.

The large strap is huge. I'm 6 foot 2 and an athletic build and I was only on the early settings, whereas I've now got a small strap, and alright, I'm on the second to last setting, but it means there isn't lots of spare strap, and the size S one is also narrower.

I picked up the music one from a previous deal but it's a seriously good bit of kit. I've used mine for the Blaydon Race, various park runs and a fair bit of commuting to work on the bike.

Lasts about 4 days on a charge with a 20 mile commute on the bike, 5k run and general day to day wearing.


Edited By: Bossworld on Jun 22, 2017 23:45: Charge
Tempted as it has music ability but I'll stick with my Vivoactive HR for the time being

Is this the non-music model? If so then the below deal is better:http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/tomtom-spark-music-57-99-tomtom-with-code-2622350
Not sure the music version has GPS
I'm wearing one bought through that deal and I can assure you that it does

Thanks for the assurance ;) didn't see it specified but thanks for the clarification
It says in the description typical use gives quarter of a day for battery?

It looks like a good deal but feel like this handset is becoming rapidly overshadowed by the Galaxy S8, the cheaper Chinese nearly bezel-less phones coming out (Xiaomi Mi Mix, Doogee Mix, etc.), new iPhone round the corner and the fact it has a last-gen processor. Then there's this niggle that LG handsets depreciate like you wouldn't believe, the G4 was around £200 within 6 months of launch, it was a steal if you had waited, similar with the G5.
The G5 is still £350!
Fake Facts! it's below £300!
JonBetts2004

I'm sure it's less than that if you can even find one (that's not the cheaper SE) and no-one is actually going to pay £350 for it. The modular system was a flop, though it deserved to be better.

It's a pity that the LG Watch Style is one of the worst Android Wear 2 watches around, according to reports the battery life is shocking, lucky to get 17 hours out of it before charging - if even that.!

Good watch, got the navy blue dial with pepsi bezel from Creation this time last year for about £155, I think. Nice and legible face, good lume, etc, etc. Only complaint is the case is a bit shiny on the edges, so was thinking of getting it bead blasted. So have it on a simple navy blue nato strap to tone it down a bit, as don't like bracelets. Great price, hot. ps the date window is too small

Really, I think the -140oC cold and falling speaks volumes.Casio watches are for school children before getting a big boy watch! Each to their own I guess, at least it's not from GearBest!

I think if you engage your brain before you comment, you will probably find the majority have given cold votes because the watch is cheaper at amazon, but carry on regardless with your snide quotes, and I take it your lack of response to my question previously means yes. (poo)

A true lover of watches will have a space or two in his watch case for a Casio G-shock. What's not to like about an economical, utilitarian, rugged watch like this?You should also make a space for an F91w and/or a databank/calculator watch.It's nice to have something higher end for everyday wear and special occasions too, but only a narrow-minded snob would shun more modest stuff and only those riven with insecurity would bring it up.

Be careful with these mine only lasted 3 weeks and now will not connect to anything I cannot see it in any Bluetooth setting, I have upgraded the app but no luck its just a glorified watch now which needs recharging
Enjoying mine, better life is amazing. It's been on for 17 days and still has 46% left.
I purchased this a while ago, came in about 4 weeks. Good bit of kit.

I link it with Map my Fitness through Google fit. You can also link it with sleep as android but I actually find the Mi app is more accurate when tracking sleep.

The alerts are pretty cool, if you get Mi band tools
Great deal (even if it happens frequently enough to be the standard price). I had the original Mi Band, then upgraded to the 1S for the pulse reader, and have now upgraded again to this. paired up with the 'Mi Band Tools' app it's comparable to fitness trackers that cost ten times the price. As has been pointed out above, if you always pop it in and out of the band from the back, you will not have issues with it falling out and getting lost. On the GearBest issue, I get loads of stuff from them and can't recall a single issue. I'm not calling those complaining about them liars, just saying that I've never had an issue, so not *EVERYBODY* is buggered about by them.
Had mine since November, use with A5 2017, had a prob syncing to miband app a couple of weeks ago, fixed by turning phone off and on again. Few niggles but for the price it is fantastic and I have also counted steps and compared and it's pretty accurate. Fell out with googlefit app as steps in there were always less than on mifit and the band despite them being linked?? Only using for steps and notifications really so mifit app is fine. Had a few straps off eBay, I prefer the ones with buckle strap as they feel more secure. One faded and the pin fitting on a leather one broke. For the cost of them I have no probs replacing every 3 months say. Only other niggle is text message notifications used to work by activating call alerts ... and this way it also told you who the text was off ... but doesn't work any more so have had to add the messaging app to notifications. If mine broke tomorrow I'd have no hesitation in getting another straight away. No experience with Gearbest tho.

I have the metal one and it's perfect. It tells me whether or not I need to look at my phone whenever I get a notification, and tracks steps too. That's all I wanted from a smartwatch. It also looks like a real watch because it is one, time adjusts automatically when I travel, and battery lasts ages. I had a Pebble Time Steel before, and I know people love Pebbles, but I could never to get it to look like a 'work watch', it always had the toy look no matter what watch face I chose, when I didn't even really care about being able to customise watch faces.
I don't know if I like this or not

As I said I wear it in rotation, to be clear I haven't worn it more than two days straight it just took about a week to get to full reserve, the charging is consistent with my other kinetics and I'm 100% certain the cell isn't faulty.I genuinely believe you're being a little impatient and hasty We'll have to disagree on what counts as vigorous ;)

Seems like a decent enough watch to buy. Been wanting Kinectic for a while
VDisillusioned
The instructions say to swing the watch from side to side, twice a second, to charge. That's fairly vigorous. If yours does not show full charge, 30 seconds on the display, after wearing it for a week, then surely the cell in yours is faulty also?

That was when it was first unveiled to the world it was not sold until 1988, so how did you get one before it was available? there is no credence in your post, you are just trying to be clever. In fact you probably never owned one, unlike some of us.


Yes correct, it was my natural instinct to think it was continuation posts sorry Bermudaviper and I see flowerdrew has amended his statement, but the rest of my statement was true released in 1988.

They invented it over 31 years ago, it was revealed in 1986 under it's original name AGM, which then became AGS and ultimately Kinetic.

Pretty sure Bermudaviper didn't claim to own one. I think you might have mixed up your posters there. I imagine he was simply stating what was on the Seiko website:

"It was at the 1986 Basel Fair that Seiko unveiled its first Kinetic prototype. Introduced under the trial name of 'AGM"

From this link.

I see your 15 years and raise you 17 years. I did have to get the capacitor changed once though, apparently the original was poor quality. It only cost a few pounds.


Considering Seiko only invented the Kinetic watch 29 years ago I'll take your post with a pinch of heroin. But I do have an over 20 year old Seiko kinetic that is still going strong with no faults and it is my favourite watch of all time, and that is over my Rolex and Breitling watches.

Citizen, Casio - don't like them. Had few, but always back to Seiko....

I can understand with Casio - but what don't you like about Citizen? One of my favourite watches is a Citizen I got in Japan about 8-9 years ago - never had an issue with it, even dived with it down to 25 metres. Haven't seen one of the same design over here.

same watch but available now in stock

Actually I think the best Citizen deal on your link to Samuels is undoubtedly the Royal Marines watch, they dont give much information but I know for certain it has a titanium and ion plated case, very thick sapphire glass, highly water resistant with an extremely hard wearing Kevlar strap. Won't be to everyone's taste but that's a lot of watch for £149.

Do you mean to say that you can't think of a single reason why a freebies may be voted cold? Tsh! Here's a few:

1. An o/p moaning that their post hasn't got the number of 'Hot' votes that they think it 'deserves'. That often has the effect of encouraging even more cold votes or no-votes.

2. The free product or service is considered 'crap'.

3. The freebie has already been posted recently.

4. The freebie is not really free, or only available to a relatively small number of people who have already paid for a service from the supplier.

5. The o/p has posted a whole series of freebies of little interest, and/or which could have been included in a single post.

6. The company offering the freebie is unreliable and/or is thought (or known) to be merely collecting email addresses.

7. The product or service is considered unethical.

8. The title is deceptive as to what is actually being offered.

I'm sure others can add to the list.

I'd rather the SKX007 any day (I have one) and you can pick them up cheaper too from Creation Watches.

I have several watches from CW. Totally agree with you, they're great and I will also use them again, but the SKX007 is currently showing at £144 plus potentially customs charges (tho I've never paid any). And remember CW is grey market import so not covered under warranty.

Does anyone know why there is an orange band for 20 seconds? It is purely stylistic or does it represent something?
Usually divers watches with unidirectional bezels will have the first 15-20 mins a different colour or atleast marked out differently. This is because the average oxygen tank lasts around that amount of time. Look at the SKX009 for a good example of this. On this watch there isn't a rotating bezel, and whilst you can time, you wouldn't use that to count minutes, so I am presuming they did it because it makes the watch look cool.

Thank you very much. I've been wanting to know this for a while.

I had the W1, brilliant little watch, great battery life. I then dropped it and the screen stopped working. Contacts Huawei and asked if they could repair it. They replied saying no. They do not repair screens if it's accidental damage. Basically if the watch is faulty then it's a swap. If you damage something you basically have to buy a new one. Was so disappointed... It's now gathering dust. :-(
I did and I like it, but I am having a couple of problems getting a few things to work properly - Mainly when linking my google Play Music account - It links but only artists beginning with the letter 'A' show on it, also only so many albums (again only beginning with 'A' show up - so i can't save any music from other artists to the watch which is annoying - anyone else having similar issues?

New version on the way...

There's always a new version on the way!
From someone who wears mine everyday for about a year and half now. They are totally unnecessary. But are really cool to have. A bit like a Ferrari. I mainly use mine for activity monitoring.

A watch obviously needs to tell the time, but there are many other considerations beyond this for buyers to think about. If style is the major issue, there are boutique brands like Rolex or Tag Heuer for men, or Zenith and Gucci for women. But you might also have specific needs in mind, such as water resistance, or sports and fitness monitoring.

Standout Timepieces

Watches can be a centrepiece of your outfit. If you are a professional seeking to add a touch of class and efficiency to your look, a watch can do the trick. When you are attending formal events, a beautiful wristwatch looks fantastic – with the added bonus of helping you get to the party on time.

Wristwatches tend to stand out. That’s mainly because of where they are placed. When we’re out and about, people cannot fail to notice what we are wearing on our wrist, even if we don’t check the time every 10 minutes. Because of this, finding the right watch is a crucial aspect of crafting a personal style.

The world of timepieces is a complex one, with plenty of options to choose from, so here are some useful guidelines for watch buyers to think about.

Movement: Quartz or Mechanical

A good watch isn’t always dazzlingly beautiful. Above all else, it should be well-made, reliable and strong. So, it pays to know a little bit about what to look for in a watch before making any purchase.

The fundamental mechanism of any watch is referred to as its movement. This mechanism is the way that the watch creates a uniform, constant interval between seconds. In poorly made watches, the movement is unreliable and seconds can easily be lost or gained – ruining your timekeeping.

There are two main different forms that this movement can be produced. The first is by using an oscillating quartz crystal, which is set in motion by a standard battery. Since the discovery of the quartz clock in 1927, this has become the most common way to create a regular pulse for watches to use – and it is far more accurate than the mechanical clocks that came before.

Casio digital watchThe second way is called a mechanical movement, and it has a very different mechanism. In this case, the movement is generated by a complex network of gears within the watch, which are kept in motion by a spring linked to the movement of the wearer’s wrist. A special form of the mechanical watch is an automatic timepiece: Automatics tend to run out of juice after leaving the wrist, leading to the need to rewind them every now and then.

Although automatics are almost always less accurate than quartz watches, and they need rewinding, this hasn’t dented their value. In fact, some of the world’s most prestigious watch brands such as Patek Phillipe rely on automatic mechanisms, and watch fans adore them.

The reasons are not technical, but emotional. There is something “alive” about an automatic watch, with its smoothly flowing seconds hand and complex design. People often make the comparison between vinyl and CDs. CDs may have purer sound quality, but vinyl has soul.

Choose the Ideal Type of Watch for Your Needs

Watches come in many different varieties, for different activities and situations – so you may want to have more than one in your collection.

Explore the Depths with a Diving Watch

If you intend to use your wrist-watch underwater, a diving watch is a necessity. Ordinary watches tend to fail beyond a relatively shallow depth of water, and they aren’t well-protected against moisture seepage. Diving watches from brands like Omega and Rolex are something else entirely. Their watches can survive depths of 300 metres or more.

Diving watches also tend to have chemically-treated dials that glow underwater, allowing divers to know exactly how long they have been submerged, while also setting up to use their bezels to count down the amount of time left for a safe dive. They may contain helium beneath the face to ease the immense pressures of the deep, and they will always be made from corrosion resistant materials.

Round Off a Formal Outfit with a Dress Watch

Chronograph watchReturning to the surface again, dress watches have little in common with diving watches aside from their ability to tell the time. These watches are always elegantly designed to complement formal attire, with smart leather straps and a slender, unobtrusive appearance. Their best dress watches are attractive without being flashy. They play their part in a formal outfit without dominating it.

The slender nature of a good dress watch is practical as well as aesthetic. Because they are so thin, dress watches rest comfortably beneath cuffs until they are required, and they don’t create any unsightly bulges. In many cases, dress watches resemble items of jewellery in that they are produced using precious metals like silver or platinum.

Take to the Skies with an Aviator Watch

The aviator watch has a familiar appearance, with its bold (usually) metallic materials, a prominent bezel and a collection of dials and hands on the watch face itself. These dials allow the aviator to provide a large amount of information in a small space – a legacy of their origins in the early days of aviation.

Nowadays, most people who choose an aviator watch will not be trained pilots. The collection of indicators on the watch are more for show than substance. Still, a good aviator watch will present its information clearly. It won’t be cluttered with elements that obscure the basic hour and second hands, and it will be substantial without becoming clunky.

The very best aviator watches are hard to distinguish from chronographs or chronometers. These highly technical timepieces feature a group of stopwatch dials, and are used to measure more than one interval at once. You could use them to measure waypoints when flying or driving, but more common uses could be in precisely measuring cooking times. Either way, they are the most precise analogue watch around.

Find a Watch to Play Your Favourite Sport

Time is a key element of most sports. Whether you are marking the seconds at the end of a football match, or checking how long your round of golf has taken, having a good watch is essential. However, not all conventional watches can stand up to the physical effects of a sporting activity.

Motor Sports

Sports watches tend to focus on comfort. They will often have soft straps that make them less abrasive when running. The last thing that long distance runners need is chafing around the wrist, and a good watch will never allow that to happen. They also tend to have large numbers and hands, so that the wearer can see at a glance what the time is, and how fast they have been moving. Most sports watches are digital – A good stopwatch is essential, while sports watches also tend to be more resilient, surviving the odd fall or immersion in water.

More recently, traditional sports watches have been joined by fitness trackers. These devices are really an advanced form of watch, and many leading manufacturers like Sony, Garmin and Fitbit have designed their products to be ready for casual wear and exercise. You can use them to monitor your times, calorie expenditure and heart rate – making them a good tool for serious fitness fans.

Fitnesstracker

Use a Smart Watch to Take Your Social Life With You

Smart watches are another new development (and in some ways, fitness trackers are a variant of smart watch). These clever little watches blend style and technology, enabling the wearer to access Android and iOS apps, check their social media presence and search the web.

Sony and apple smart watches

Smart watches are developing all the time, but look out for the offerings from established names like Pebble, Apple, LG and Asus – all of which offer watches with a huge range of functions and attractive prices. Be sure to find a watch with the right screen size and not too much bezel, and pay attention to battery life as well. Some smart watches will be better than others for social media or fitness tracking, so be sure to find one with the features you need.

Things to Think About When Buying A Women’s Watch

Aviator watchChoosing a women’s wrist-watch is a similar process to buying a men’s watch, with some important differences. Naturally, there are some unisex options like some aviators, dress watches and diving watches – while fitness watches are designed for everyone. However, there is certainly a distinct range for women to choose from.

Women’s watches tend to have more slender straps and smaller faces than men’s varieties. They also use a broader palette of colours, with golds and pinks a common sight. Single-tone silver watches are a distinctly feminine watch variety, as are classic, square-faced watches with slim leather straps. The key thing is that the watch you choose matches up to your wardrobe and jewellery collection.

Choosing Watches for Children

Some watches are specifically designed with children in mind as well. It’s not really worth purchasing a watch for your child until they are able to use them – probably around 6 years old at the earliest – but getting them into the habit of telling the time is a good move.

Kids also like wearing watches, at least if they are well-designed. That’s why designers like Cath Kidston and Lorus have come up with colourful, dynamic designs for youngsters. Children can tumble and drop things, so choosing a watch with a reinforced or rubber rim is a good idea, but it’s always best to let the child’s own taste guide which one they choose to wear.

What to Think About When Making a Purchase

One thing that all watch buyers need to think about is size. Do you want a huge watch face that is filled with timers, and a large bezel with even more features? Or do you favour something less obvious, that can slip underneath your clothing? You might need something delicate, small and beautiful, with fewer functional elements – or something clunky and purely utilitarian for diving or running.

The main part of the watch is called the case. What size you pick will depend on your wrist size and the purpose of the watch. Generally, men go for case sizes, with a diameter between 30 mm and 40 mm, while for women the range is around 25 mm to 35 mm. However, if you have a large wrist, an even larger case will look fine, although it may not suit those with slender wrists.

Straps are another consideration that has to be brought into the equation. Comfort is really important when wearing a watch, so in most instances, a heavy strap will be undesirable. Lighter materials will sit more comfortably on the skin of the wrist – so consider straps made from leather or canvas for everyday wear. Aluminium is another common strap material that is both light and strong – making it perfect for aviators and driving watches.

Dress watchMake sure that you purchase the right strap size. Generally, straps come in three varieties: small (wrist circumference 15 cm to 18 cm), standard (17 cm to 21 cm) and large or extra large (21 cm to 24 cm). It’s a good idea to measure your wrist before you buy, so that you know your watch will fit properly.

Shape is also something to think about. There are two major watch shapes – round and square – and the one you choose will often depend upon personal taste. Women’s watches often look more elegant in rectangular shapes, which are far less common on men’s dress or work watches. Fitness watches tend to have squared edges to provide more surface area for buttons, and a more streamlined look, while aviators and diving watches will usually be round.

How to Buy Your Next Watch

There are plenty of high street and online retailers to choose from, and they tend to specialize in certain types of watches. For example, a shop like John Lewis is good for standard sports and aviator watches, or watches for professionals, while H Samuel stock many ladies’ dress watches.

There is no bad time to look for discounted watches, as watches are the kind of item that people need at all times of year. However, major retailers tend to offer savings between Christmas and New Year – although you should look out for discounts especially on luxury brands throughout the year.
