I'll start with my bias: I've been waiting for a classy watch which could merely notify me for years. I've had multiple "smart" watches, and they're all in a bin now. Between charging and the annoyance of wearing a small, poor facsimile of a smartphone on your wrist, I was completely dissatisfied.
On paper this watch checks all my boxes: minimalist, analog or fashionable digital, Bluetooth notifications, long battery life (more than days).
In person the build is impeccable. Very well done, beautiful minimalist design. I have received many compliments. The watch "half" is all you'd ask for from an analog watch.
The smart half is, all told, quite good. Notifications come through fairly reliably. Pairing is mostly reliable. I've only had intermittent issues with either. The android app, while a bit unrefined, gets the job done. I am able to say which apps can notify, what types of notifications, etc.
In short, everything advertised is there: beauty, smarts, easily removable bands, easily changeable battery. I've had this over a week, I will report on the battery life when the smart battery dies.
Nearly 4 months later and I still haven't needed to replace the battery. Amazing longevity.
I have switched to iPhone and I will that the establishing the connection is slightly easier. In android, I have to un-pair and re-pair sometimes.

These guys took a good idea.
If I could rate 0, I would. Another attempt at a minimalist smartwatch gone wrong. These guys took a good idea...then got way ahead of themselves, cut corners, and are currently pushing a very poor product. Lets start with craftsmanship. The watch looks good...styling is strong...but it is very lightweight and "feels" cheap. If you are not a watch enthusiast...it may work for you, but for someone that understands what a good watch feels like on the wrist...this one falls short. The dependability of the watches operation, and the performance of the apps barely warrant any discussion, behind....very disappointing. Right out of the box....if you follow the enclosed instructions...it will not work. Had to go to their website to find a link...that led to the "correct" app....and the activation instructions were completely different. Once it is linked up with phone....nothing works. after 4 days....the app recorded nothing....no activity, no sleep data, nothing. The watch did buzz when things happened....but the colors did not match what the app said...and though they advertised that you could customize colors of the LED's.....that is only available in the app that does not activate the watch. This was literally a complete cluster **** This one will be returned as well. Save yourself the time and effort....I am awaiting the Withings HR Steele....lets hope they get a bit closer with the recent backing of Nokia.

Didn't work right out of the box. Returned.
Didn't work out of the box. The instructions were so minimal it felt difficult to know if I was doing something wrong or if there was something wrong with the watch. Additionally, the QR code in the instruction manual led to a 404 Error and a search for the app in Google Play resulted in 3 different apps with the same icon, different publishers, and no indication as to which was the "real" app to use.
I would not buy this if I were you.
