I got one Thursday as well lol - the watch is delivered with no charge in the battery so no playing with it when you first get it :-(. Once charged it took me ages to set it up (after an initial update to Google Wear) and learn about all the settings you have to change. Then Friday it decided to update Google wear again - twice more(!) - got stuck for a bit and then lost all the settings and the apps that I had installed. It won't update unless you are on the charger as any watch could brick if it runs out of power while updating. So spent Friday night setting it up again and I am happy to say its working great at the moment. Had to stop and then disable the Misfit App, the Misfit Fitness app and the Forecast app as I found they were real battery drainers on day one. You lose the Misfit watch faces (which I wasn't expecting, but the added battery life is sooo well worth it) so I used the remaining Google Wear faces to design my own. The only thing I would say to anyone thinking of purchasing this one is be prepared to play with it quite a bit to set it up - it isn't a ready-to-wear out of the box item. I was half expecting it, but the triple update to Google Wear OS 2.9 made it worse and was a bit of a pain. Used it loads today to monitor my paces and get the news updates, and its working really well so far! This morning I charged the watch to 100% at 11am and I still have 75% at 7pm so not too shabby. EDIT: Had it a week now and after the initial set up and multiple updates (same as any computer) it's pretty good. Been using it to monitor messages and emails and answer them verbally. Display clear and easy to read, and provided you take the time to set it up properly and disable "OK google" etc. its fine for most uses. It monitors my paces and heart rate just fine, responds to commands and you can even load Google maps onto it and use it to control the Google sat nav on your phone. Battery life is now OK but not great, but I only have to charge it once a day as expected. A lot of the issues that were reported don't seem to apply or be a problem. The charger could do with being a bit better but really isn't all that fiddly. You do have to make sure that its charging (obviously like any contact charger) and the screen display clearly indicates if its charging or not. The weird bit on the clasp that people said cuts into them, a watch bar release tab, does no such thing to me so maybe they altered the design. Tip: if you put the watch into low power mode overnight you will lose a lot less power. You can't do it if its on charge, but I charge mine to 100% and then put it in low power mode and I've taken to switching the screen off when I'm not using it and it seems to help preserve battery life a lot. The next morning it has 99% provided I ALSO switch the screen off manually. I also found that there are 3rd party charging stands on Amazon for about a tenner which look OK and would give me somewhere to hold the watch when needed. So overall a bit of a bargain for a first time smartwatch provided you are not too demanding a user and realise that this is 2017 technology not 2019.

Got one of those on Thursday, the watch software got stuck on 2.0 2017, it took all night to update to Wear 2.9, had to keep it on charger otherwise it did not go 8) Mixed feelings after samsung gear fit 2 pro, which was not great either... 8)
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 https://g.co/kgs/wMfZCr and plenty of demos on Youtube like this one : and it also has some good Q&A in the comments section.
Why? Any experience with that one? (skeptical)
advice, don't waste your money on this!
