These are either fake or unsupported grey market models. If you use an official Lenovo firmware update then it pretty much kills them.
Ah my friends in gear best ...still have 2 undelivered items 2 months late PayPal claim maybe soo
Ive had mine for 3 months now, pretty good
Had one but awful build quality it fell apart literally after a few weeks. The xaiomi 1 is still going strong and far better quality.
Lenovo firmware went on without issue, they are okay for the price, but struggle to connect to some devices and the app needs to be running all the time on your device to record the data.
"not necessarily compatible with other romantic photo software" ?!
I have 2 and have had no build problems
they seem to last 3 to 4 days on a charge
but i only use it for heart monitoring and sleep
and I sync the data every few days with no problems

I bought one for me and one for my gf about 3 months ago. Hers works fine but mine gave up the ghost after a month or so.

To test them I wore both watches on the same wrist and got differing heart rates! It also regularly disconnects from the dodgy Lenovo app.

It is only 14 quid though so I guess it isn't designed to be a market leader!
It's been proven that no Smart watch or Fitbit is remotely accurate.
AS others have already hinted at, this product is NOT made by Lenovo. It's a fake grey import and probably won't last very long. Lenovo tech just confirmed this for me but if you read the instruction sheet that comes with the product you'll pretty quickly come to the same conclusion as it's obvious. DON'T update the firmware on the bracelet if you're prompted to as this WILL kill the battery life and the product will only be fit for the bin shortly afterwards.
