"Underperforming, unacceptable battery life"
In the color: Zilver/Bruin

By Barry Nauta on 22 May 2019

  • Pros:
    Looks
  • Con:
    Battery life
  • Con:
    Performance
  • Con:
    Thick bezel

This is an absolutely beautiful watch, the main reason I purchased it. However, the battery life is an absolute no go. With all features, except bluetooth, disabled, my max autonomy is 13 hours which is not enough to make it to the end of the day. Additionally, the performance is not top. The screen is often lagging. This as such is not a real problem, but still annoying, The bezel is not how it is shown on the image of the watch, it is much thicker. This is unexpected nowadays, it makes many watchfaces look weird.

Overall, the watch looks very nice, but underperforming in many ways, the watch will be returned and I'll start looking for another.
