No chance, not an Apple fan but still can't see the point of one. Have you seen the YouTube clip testing it being dropped from 3ft? Screen shattered far to easily.

I might get a U8 or V8 Smart Watch instead, they look ok for the money.

Not properly waterproof- what is the point ? Also battery life is nowhere near useable enough.

Yeah, it seems to be a consensus among everyone that battery life is way below par.

I've just got a Fitbit Surge (replaced my old tatty Flex). Awesome piece of kit! Plus when I go out on a run or long walk, don't need to take my phone as it has its own GPS.

Another gadget that needs charging every day just so you don't have to get your phone out your pocket... when did we get so lazy ?
I'm going to patent glasses which display a flashing light to tell you there is a notification on your watch from the phone in your pocket !
