It has GPS, Reviews based on RRP, not on £60 price tag 🔥
They advertise 'connected gps'. Connected GPS means it only tracks your location if you run with your phone. So there is no gps on the watch.

My sister in law had one of these, battery wouldn't even last 12hrs without using the GPS.

I read and in functions says gps but if you scroll down where is the photo of a guy swimming you will see it says connected gps. And connected gps means the watch doesn't have gps but uses the one of the phone, you cant record a run without the phone.
advice, don't waste your money on this!

Why? Any experience with that one?
Hmm its definitely tempting for £60 even though its far from a perfect watch but that holds true for many watches that are £260.

From what I can see in the reviews you have to know how to get the best from the watch, certainly battery life wise, but it's very stylish for a big watch and it looks a safer buy than many of the cheap Chinese models out there. There seem to be many positive reviews from satisfied customers but they can be difficult to find as for some reason Amazon UK and Amazon.com have very few.

A few tips seem to be:
* configure the watch carefully to get the best battery life: lower the brightness and don't use the native Misfit app - a REAL battery drainer- see Youtube video below as apparently it gives you 4hrs extra, use Google fit etc instead.
* shut off all of the gestures, don't have the tilt features on (battery drainers and flaky response)
* no GPS, just connected GPS through the phone. No onboard speaker. There is an onboard mic so you can answer txts verbally
* the clasp on the supplied band rubs and will hurt - either change the strap or replace the bar on the strap
* it also seems a bit hit and miss waterproof wise but personally I would never shower or swim with a watch on anyway so it wouldn't bother me. Similarly the lack of on board NFC on this model doesn't bother or affect me in any way, since I don't use payment apps of any sort.
* this is primarily and Android watch, and although they say it supports IOS a lot of the bad reviews come from disappointed Apple users who can't get it to work reliably with their iPhone.
* you need to position the watch on the charger carefully as its a bit fussy about connecting.

If you aren't too demanding a user then you can expect to get away with charging the watch once a day for 1-2 hrs

So all in all I guess if could be worth £60 for a first time smartwatch from a trusted UK shop, so should you want to try one out keep hold of the receipt as it will come in handy just in case you need to return it within the guarantee period.

Lots of reviews on Google g.co/kgs…ZCr and plenty of demos on Youtube like this one :



and it also has some good Q&A in the comments section.
