Here is a good product review:

What makes this watch attractive to me is that it can be charged during use. If you happen to use it for longer than the 24 hour battery life, this is a nice feature.

Warranty listed as one year. Is that true?

Yeah, 1 year warranty.

Square Trade offers $30 for three years warranty (you can add that at the time of purchase through Newegg). Seems like a reasonable deal.

The Fenix watch line does not hold any music.
You'd need to go with a different watch for that function.

I own the Fenix 3 and I like it better than my old android smartwatch which didn't have GPS.
It's not as integrated as the android smartwatch, but I still get my notification alerts and the battery lasts me a whole week.

While it cannot store music, according to https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2015/...view.html, it can control music streaming from your phone.

Thanks. Trying to ditch the phone while running and still have music.

I hear you. Lugging around a phone while running is cumbersome. I used to use an arm band but recently started using a waist band, like this, https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0...UTF8&psc=1, and like it much better than an arm band.

I ordered this watch and am looking forward to being able to control my phone music from the watch rather than the phone.

You should checkout the TomTom Spark 3 if you want Onboard music and GPS. Not the best looking Fitness tracker/ Smartwatch. But one f the very few that offer onboard music and GPS. Leave your phone home. https://www.tomtom.com/en_us/sports/running/
