I have the 42mm version and I feel totally ripped off by the brand.

I noticed they the wacth using GPS in running, bike or walk uses an average of aproxametly 18 to 20% of the battery. And this is with all extra things off.

So since I was not able to do any activity over 5h, I decided to send it to warranty.

They report said an anomaly was detected, and they replaced the board.
When I got it back I went on hour walk, the baterry went from 82 to 63.

I sent it back and this time no anomaly was detected. Only updated the software.

That is not at all normal. If they have the option of hiking, trail that are activities that go way on more than 5h. What happens? Easy you run out of baterry before your exercise is done.

In no manner can this even be considered a sportswatch nevermind for hiking, trail or biking.

Have to go back to my cheap but durable battery on my amazfit

        Lose the bezel please! It is totally unnecessary for the big black ring around the screen surface; take it to the edge.

          Don’t make mistake plz

                    battery life good.price is a bit high,though. I would also liked to see some details about HR,GPS,SPO2 accuracy and connectivity capability with android and ios devices.I read it does NOT pair with android devices or it is very unstable with them.ios pairing is also some gliches.firmware upgrade does not work at all in either andorid or ios devices.

                        As I think another has said, lack of nfc support is a bit of killer for those who don't care so much about the fitness tracker aspect. Shame
