Bought this watch a while ago and I'd say my only complaint so far is that the charging pad is magnetic with charging pins, and you have to ensure the watch sits flush with the pad. Sometimes you have to play around with it to ensure the connection is flush otherwise it won't charge.

Other than that, I bought this watch more so as a watch (as in the Smartwatch features are just a bonus) and I love seeing and feeling my notifications on the go. Android Wear 2 update has made this watch feel 10x smoother and faster as well compared to before.

Not that I have any experience with any other smartwatches but I'm definitely happy with my purchase.

You know the feeling of being naked without your phone or wallet? I feel the same way without my watch sometimes.

That black stainless steel looks really nice! It'll cost a bit of a premium ($219 CAD for refurb silver with the leather strap vs $200 USD for new black with the links strap) but visually I like it a lot more.

I got this one off someone on Kijiji but in silver. I really like the watch - battery life is approx ~1.5 days (always on, tilt to wake off) and it syncs up nicely with my Oneplus 3T. It already had Android Wear 2 by the time I got it so I don't know what it was like before.

My only gripe would be that there's only 1 charger - I find that I just try to bring the charger with me between work and home because I'll end up forgetting to charger it at one place or another. I haven't been able to find any cheap 3rd party chargers yet - most of them are for the Huawei Watch 2 instead.

Just a heads up I had this in black as well as the Moto360 Gen 2 in Black. The coating used on the body and the straps is not very durable, at least not as durable as the Moto360 Gen 2.

I still have this in pure SS and it looks great. The Sapphire screen is fantastic I've had mine for a year and 0 scratches not even a hairline. My Moto360 Gen 2 on the other hand.

No NFC capabilities is you were looking to use Android Pay on it. Still a great watch, I bought mine a year ago during Newegg sale.

I got the Huawei Watch 2 because of the lacking NFC - that being said it is rather useless and I do not use it.

In order to use Android Pay you need a pin set on the watch. It asks for it any time you remove the watch.... Or whenever it THINKS you removed it. I ended up disabling NFC as the watch kept thinking it lost skin contact even when it was uncomfortably tight, and it is annoying having to use a PIN every time you want to interact with the watch. I'll stick to pulling out my phone to pay.

How are you guys getting free shipping and custom clearance only $11?

For me, they are charging $8.70 for shipping, and $25.70 for custom clearance?

Help! Thanks

It says Free shipping to Canada for most orders over $99 on their website. I don't know about customs as I do not order from the US to my Canadian address. I have family in Michigan who I use for my US orders.
