I have this watch. I am VERY impressed by it. I previously had the Pebble Time. The battery life is sick. Its literally 2 weeks and I get a lot of notifications. The screen is always on, so no flicking your wrist to see the time. The glass face is so much durable than the Pebble. I have banged it a lot and still no scratches. I don't demand a lot from a smartwatch...just alerts and a stopwatch, so its perfect for me. I don't use the GPS, sleep, or heart monitor. Overall, great watch for the price. It's not an Apple watch. If you want an Apple get an Apple...this watch doesn't pretend to be one. Any specific questions fire away....I'll do my best to answer.

The only con is notifications only stay on the screen for like 5 seconds and then disappear....but you can easily bring then back up with a press of the button and a swipe. Aslo, the font could be a little larger. Hopefully they can update those with new firmware.

"Massage/App alert"? Is there a happy ending?

Ive had 3 versions of the pebble watch, two of them had garbled screen issues, the pebble time worked great but battery life was about 5 days with Bluetooth turned off. I stayed away from Apple Watch and other android watches due to poor battery life. Did some research and switched to the amazfit bit about 3 months ago and it has been superb. The first full charge lasted me 70 days, with GPS and HR monitor turned off, but with Bluetooth turned on for notifications and alerts. The watch is really lightweight and screen is easy to read in daylight without the backlight. FWIW it kinda looks like an Apple Watch for afar.

That said, some drawbacks i can think of are:
1. Not too many watchface choices with the default app, if you have an android phone there are a lot more choices out there or you can even create your own watchfaces with a free software that's out there, but no luck if you have an iphone.
2. The phone app sometimes feels a little buggy, It would sometimes repeatedly sync or update the A-GPS and get stuck there until you force quit the app
3. Most of the included watchfaces are set at 24 hour clocks rather than 12 hour clocks, meaning you would get 23:00 for 11:00pm. I think they've added a few that are 12 hour std but when I first bought it that was a really incredulous issue that could not be changed.
4. I travel a lot so I really miss the dual/multiple world time zone watchfaces on my Pebble, currently dual time is not possible on the amazfit bit.
5. Heart rate didn't seem to work for me, as I couldn't get any HR data with it turned on, although i need to qualify that by saying i've only tried using it once.
6. There doesn't seem to be a way for me to reset or power cycle the watch when I needed to, there's an option in the watch menu but it does not work as it says with a long press.
7. You need to tap the watchface once every time for the watch to respond. This is not a big deal but you kinda get used to it after a while.

Anyway I love this watch, the incredible battery life was enough to more than offset the little quirks or limitations with the app or the watchOS

I hope 🤞 amazon price match this. BTW GearBest has this for $57 including shipping if you received their daily email. $58 without email promo. Of course the shipping time will be a pain.
