Samsung Gear Fit 2 (Large), GPS, Activity Tracker, Black (SM-R3600DAAXAC)

For me, key features are

Decent battery life

I think the price is pretty good.

No longer Samsung only pairing.

I have this. The one thing that bugs me the most is that mine suffers from an issue whereby it isn't able to start the workout tracker. I need to reboot it In order for it to work properly. This happens every other day and seems to happen after ive charged it. Boot up is pretty quick though.

I got one for $79 back in November. Battery life was bad and tracking was all over the place though the screen was very pretty. I still wanted to keep it until it stopped tracking TWICE within 20 days, had to factory reset the darn thing once a week for it to work again. Too fed up with losing data I ended up taking it back.

Am looking for a waterproof fitness tracker. How does this one (link to Amazon.ca page) compare to Samsung Gear?
If my sanity has to go, it is my job to keep its absence to myself. :D

I received mine (the price dropped by $10 for a bit, and newegg sent me a GC for the difference) and been trialing it for the past few days and the impressions are:
- poor battery life - essentially lasts one day
- Had to turn on the "always on" feature since I wasn't able to see the time when I needed it (wasn't so sensitive to my arm movements and gesture mapping) - probably contributes to the lower battery life
- given that I have to charge it daily, it is a bit of pain taking it on or off (compared to my Fitbit Surge whose battery life is phenomenal like 7 days)
- the notifications are kind of hard to get to and no dismissing via gesture (have to use the back button)
- haven't used the GPS or the on-board music as I haven't started jogging yet (cold season)

So overall, I'm not very fond of it - I tend to want to wear my Fitbit Surge as it serves my purposes.

Wish I could return it - it is most likely going in one corner (next to the original Gear Fit that I gifted to my wife, but didn't get much traction)

An earlier version of this article incorrectly described a behavior of crows exposed to crow corpses. Live crows only touch, attack and attempt intercourse with crow corpses, they do not scavenge them. (Actual NYT correction)
