I have a real love it and hate it re­la­tion­ship with this watch.

In the two years I’ve had this GPS and fit­ness tracker, I feel like I’ve cu­mu­la­tively spent two weeks try­ing to get it to re­con­nect with my phone over Blue­tooth, and an­other two weeks stand­ing out­side my house wait­ing for a sig­nal be­cause it hasn’t synced up.

All I know is, when Blue­tooth does work it's magic and can find the satel­lite al­most straight away.

Plus, when you re­turn, it’s pretty sat­is­fy­ing to see you’ve got Strava ku­dos be­fore you’ve sat down with your phone.

The nov­elty of see­ing my sup­posed calo­rie ex­pen­di­ture, heart rate and sleep count has long since worn off. I’m not sure I can trust the read­ings any­way.

An­noy­ances aside, it's served me well for all this time and I look for­ward to log­ging thou­sands more miles with it.
