This time though the watch started to get very hot very quickly. Was given this smart watch on Christmas. Heap of rubbish Yes mine was a dodo promotion, charged it and all was good for a week, then died never to be revived I’ve had this watch for about 4 months and it works well and syncs with my iPhone 4S. I was extremely excited to receive my watch as I had wanted a smart watch for ages, worked great for about 2 hours. But that is really it, the battery is nothing special. Initially when I bought this one had some technical issues so I replaced it.
Problem after problem Please save yourself the time and money and do not purchase this! Potentially Dangerous for sure! Date Purchased Apr I thought maybe the battery went flat. I shudder to think what might have happened had the device decided to go into meltdown in the middle of the night, keeping in mind that given the device monitors sleep quality, wearing it at night is expected. Eventually I discovered that repeatedly tapping the very edge of the touch screen near the bezel adjacent to the tick icons would work. Then the touch screen become very unresponsive and the device was laggy with input, after I had run with it. Staff Writers Good Gear Guide.
Date Purchased Feb Difficult to do as it does not fully synchronize with iPhone. Batteries are faulty and they won’t last! Please save yourself the time and money and do not purchase this! Date Purchased Jul It should not go kaput so quickly.
Date Purchased Nov This watch replaced by Pendo. There is a rear 2 megapixel camera and another 0. Blue tooth is a bit tricky, but I think that is more about me, because a young “nerd” had no trouble with settings, so I did not have to send it back aspreviously arranged with Pendo who twice followed up my complaint, I think the X1 is good value compared to the others on the market.
Officeworks is selling the PendoPad, a 7-inch Android tablet. I emailed, phoned and wrote a letter asking for refund. For its price it could be a better equipped to compete with the famous ones. I returned this after the purchase as wasnt happy with all the features. This still continued with my message and call notifications.
I have no doubt that had I not managed to power the watch down it would have continued to get hotter and the risk of fire or explosion from malfunctioning batteries in portable devices is quite well known. Whether mine was an isolated incident, I have no way qatch knowing.

Yes mine was a dodo promotion, charged it and all was good for a week, then died never to be revived The suggested Mediatek app downloaded from the Apple store seemed to work OK with message notifications from my iPhone popping up on the smartwatch screen and the various health data from the watch integrating to some degree with the iPhone built-in health app.
I think the material is very low-grade and I would not recommend for runners.
I’ve had this watch for about 9 months, from memory and yesterday it started making strange noises and then looked like there was some sort of interference or supernatural being inside it! It should start from the receipt of the last fourth watch, does anybody know?

This one seems better as the battery does not need charging as often and all functions working but what about the warranty? Now I know why I got it for free as part of a promotion for a service.
