Battery life on my watch isnt horrible, YMMV.
Reviewed in the United States on March 9, 2021
Reduced to 4 stars. The battery life is still fine, but the battery meter is not consistent. I don't know how to describe it other than some days the battery "uses" 2% and other days it "uses" 25% or more. The battery life is still at the 6-7 day mark, but the indications dont show the gradual decrease expected. It is probably the most annoying issue with the watch. All other features work as expected still. Currently on day 6 with 26% remaining.
The watch is for the most part still performing as expected. My typical use can usually achieve 6-7 days of battery life. One item that i have noticed is that every now and then (once every 10ish days), the watch will eat through the battery. Dropping about 40% in a matter of hours. When i notice, restarting the watch stops the issue. Its an annoying, but not a deal breaker.
Battery life for this watch is as expected (4-5 days). With the watch+hr (no gps, music, pulse ox) it'll use 12-15% battery per day. Pulse ox during sleep (about 8 hours) burns an extra 10% per day. It is also very important that you turn off the seconds hand if you want a good battery life. Updating the screen every second eats the battery as well. I think the watch used about 5% battery in the first 3-4 hours before i turned of the seconds hand.
I'm sure some reviewers have gotten duds, but its likely that some of the battery life issues are either user error, or they set their expectations too high.
As far as functionality, the step counter isnt great. The watch roughly counts double the steps I actually take.
For the few workouts i've done so far, remembering which button pauses/moves to the next set takes a minute. i know there are only two buttons but ive accidentally stopped the workout more times than i care to admit.
I've had to restart the watch a few times when trying to mess with the watch face settings. The touch functionality kept thinking i tapped the screen instead of me actually trying to scroll through the menu options.
Gps took a minute to lock. You should be outside when you try to get gps signal if you hope to get a signal quickly. The gps has been very accurate for tracking my avtivities
I dont think the sleep tracking function is what i expected. If you lie in bed for a while after you wake up, the watch will think you are in the light sleep stage still.
