Manage to get a black one. Already have the gold one on the last deal with 15% off. Make sure wifi and lte are off for longer battery life. Can go two days without charging. Notification don't seem to work on iphone though. Solid watch for the price.
Anyone using this with iPhone, can you comment on the experience ?

It is ok, can't seem to get any notification. This phone is made for android phone so isn't ideal for ios. I got wifi and LTE shut off and got 3 days + battery life.

No ios notifications seem like a pretty huge issue. Surprised it' not mentioned more. I thought notifications was one of the main benefits of a smart watch.

Sure is. I got an apple watch as well and notification seem not to work neither with whatapps and others apps. I don't know if it's an ios issue or the watch itself.

For the price it's a steal, it is a very well built watch. Battery last longer than most watches with wifi and LTE off. Even though with notification issue on IOS.

I have a GearS3 and I would still totally buy this if NFC worked (Android Pay).

No tap and pay on a smartwatch is a deal breaker imo. Also sad to see this doesn't work well with iphones, would get a rose gold for the wife..

True but to be honest watch pay isn't as great as phone pay.

Disable: My VZ, VZ messaging and Wear24 apps.
Enable: airplane mode.
Enable: BT and/or WiFi
Disable: VZ carrier profile from the "SIM Info" app.
Install: Android Messages from Google playstore (on both phone and watch).
Thats it, messaging would be handled by the installed Android Messages app.
Do u do these steps on the phone or watch?

I just read that there is now a way to enable NFC, xda forums: https://forum.xda-developers.com/androi ... 4-t3758865.
As I just ordered a silver today for $79 CAD w free ship, thos is good news.
Looking at that thread it doesn't seem they got it to work?

Has anyone else seen any other info on NFC? My phone doesn't have NFC so this would be a must buy if it could do Android pay.

On the watch, but do it after you get all the updates applied first.

Did anyone else receive their watch at 0 percent battery? Assuming it's lithium ion batteries, they should never be allowed to reach 0. Not sure how long the seller left the battery at 0, but it'll definitely take a toll on the battery life. Thinking of telling the seller asking for replacement.

If I didn't have two super cheap Diggro watches in the mail, I would buy this watch. I don't care about NFC (phone is better) and want a heart monitor so the Diggro watches fit the bill.

The Diggro is definitely a tinkerer's watch though.
