I love this! I was worried about how it would work. Not knowing anything about smart watches and all! 1. You do get ur text messages on it.2. U can make phone calls through it and talk.3. Alarms easy to use.4. It does motivate me to do more.5. Counts my steps, calories, exercise.I'm sure it does a million other things but this what I wanted. And cheaper than I thought I would get it for.Personally I don't like the original watch band. It's silicon and it sticks to my skin and gets itchy. Will get a new band. Easy to remove and replace bands as well.Battery life is good. Lasts two days for what I use it for. Daily normal watch use. Getting texts while at work. I do not do any other apps which probably helps my battery life.
