Nothing but horrors!
By Jason N
I was looking for a smartwatch that's more watch than computer. I used this for about 2 months before it died (4 battery changes in that time, 2 for the smartwatch, 2 for the analog motion). I finally bought a Martian Watches Notifier Smartwatch - Black and love that watch.
Pros: There aren't any??
The app is unstable on IOS
Upgrading the app required a re-pair and re-setup of all my options. Not acceptable
The notifications only work right if the app is running (see point 1), thus many missed notifications
Battery life was poor, using a disposable battery instead of rechargeable. I knew this going into it, but I wasn't expecting to change it every 2 weeks. That's at only about 5 notifications a day!
The button functions never did make sense to me
Crystal scratched really easily and cracked when I dropped it on the floor
Support is horrible: They wouldn't warrante the cracked crystal, offered to fix the motion, or offer me a 50% discount on a new one. With all the other cons, I said "No Thanks"
And my biggest gripe and the reason I ditched this watch: The analog motion never kept accurate time, losing about a minute per day. I contacted support, tried different battery brands, and never got it to keep good time. A watch that doesn't keep time doesn't fulfill its primary purpose in my book.

Great buy for this type of gadget!
By Beryl Wilson
Awesome watch! Love the look and feel of it even though it is quite big and I am a girl ! I wanted a watch-like device rather than gadget-like item that needs constant recharging. I wanted a watch to alert me to important calls or texts etc when my phone is packed safely away so as not to have to pull it out unnecessarily. Does the job well! It synced without an issue with my iPhone 6. It did not clash with other synced objects like my UP3 or my car media system. However, with all these gadgets linked to my phone I do notice the battery drains a bit faster. But well worth it!

Had low expectations and yet still disappointed
By Joseph Maddock
When I received, none of the Smart Watch features worked. The face of the watch still works but the design is even larger than the original Cookoo (which I was Kickstarter participant with). The really disappointing thing about this is I love the concept and the look of the Cookoo watches, but I have never gotten one that actually works. I basically just have a watch with a nice sleek face, but a plastic band.
I have only worn this watch a couple times since I bought it a month ago. I'll try to replace the battery in hopes that it just doesn't have enough power to fully function but I don't have high hopes.
