Here's the honest Review...
By Bill C. Castengera
The watch is a great price. I'm not sure how they're whipping these things out at such a low cost. There are things that could improve and I'll start with those. It's NOT water proof. Ya gotta get over it. You can't have EVERYTHING you want at an absurdly low price. Not a big deal to me. I never planned on diving into a natural spring with it on anyway. I have been caught out in the rain with it. The watch got wet, but survived. One of the few issues I have with it is this: you have to download an app on your phone if you want to push notifications to the watch. Want to read a text from the watch? You have to have the app downloaded. My main goal when I bought the watch was to simply be able to get a text and look at my wrist instead of pulling out my phone. Objective achieved. It vibrates on my wrist when I get a text. You can also have it make any sound your phone makes to alert you. It connects via Bluetooth. The app runs in the background on your phone for the notifications. My only issue is that sometimes the bluetooth will be connected, but the watch doesn't recognize that the app is running on the phone, in which case, the texts and notifications don't get pushed through the watch. If that happens, you can still make and receive calls, but no push notifications. Bummer. I restart the phone, I restart the watch, but I must have not hut the tight combinations of things to figure out how to fix the problem every time. Sometimes, after disconnecting it, then reconnecting it, the problem is solved. Sometimes not. Haven't figured out the magical combination yet or if there is one to have a successful watch/app connection everytime. When the app is running in the background on the phone and the watch recognizes it, life is grand. When the app is running in the background and the watch doesn't recognize it, it's a battery killer. The phone gets hot when this happens and I can only assume it's because it's working like hell to find the watch to no avail. But check out how many stars this watch gets from me. Yep. 4. Overall, it looks great, works great. And I'm mostly happy with the amount I paid for it and all it does.

For $80 this thing is amazing!!
By Amazon Customer
For $80 this thing is amazing!!! It is 5 times better than a fitbit and is still cheaper than it! I just wish it had more app capabilities (so in other words you can't get games or anything but it still is awesome to have). If you purchase be aware people WILL ask if it's an Apple watch!

Once I figured out how to set up the bt notifier it's been working wonderfully. To save you a lot of time finding an app that works I downloaded SMARTWEAR. For 50 bucks I'd say it's definitely worth it. Wanted a smartwatch but didn't want to spend a fortune for one. Simple but does the job and looks just like the apple watch. Only down fall is the Bluetooth connection is super short, if you walk into a different room without your phone it disconnects.
