Ratings and Reviews
Syncing is a mission
Im a fairly new user - only got my device a month. Although I like the look and feel, syncing is not a simple task. I’ll sink and expect it to be working only to find that it hasn’t or hasn’t uploaded a full days results. I’ve resorted to taking the device off and placing it on my cellular screen to sync as alternatively suggested and although that appears to work better, at times it throws the time off. Last Friday was such an example and got me into some trouble for thinking I had to leave a meeting already only to find out I had the wrong time. Embarrassing and frustrating! I had a much cheaper device and experienced none of these challenges in the past. If this experience continues, I’ll have no choice but to revert back to the old device. Pity is I bought an extra four devices to give as Christmas gifts and at the moment, I’m regretting have done so as I expect they’re going to be frustrated too.
Couple of issues, otherwise great
1. When I wear the V800 watch to sleep, it doesn’t always track my sleep correctly. For example, I fell asleep on the couch pretty early then woke up and got in bed late. It only counted the time after I went to bed as sleep.
2. Elevation isn’t shown on the workout in the app, I have to go to the full website to see it.
3. The HR monitor strap isn’t the best - it misses measurements; I actually need to test it with the phone as well as the watch to try and isolate the issue.
I’ve mostly worn the watch as a daily tracker and used it with HR monitor for running, bike rides, hiking, etc. and overall, it’s pretty good, no major issues. My first V800 melted when I tried to recharge it and they replaced it. The second one seems to be holding up really well.
Questionable Data, Uncalibrateable
I bought the 430 for the wrist based heartrate monitoring and im extremely satisfied with that.
With that said when i run on the treadmill the data collected is extremely questionable. It has never given me an accurate distance. Today’s run it captured 3.5miles of 5. Unfortunately the flow app doesn’t allow me to calibrate for my stride/Light footstrike and correct the inaccurate distance. This means you’re left with a completely worthless run data history. Worse is the questions it raises about the other data captured. If it missed 1.5miles making it completely off on your pace, how accurate is the cadence data. Also best of luck if you forget to stop your workout because there is no way to correct the inaccurate data. I find myself depending on a lot of other apps just like when i had my polar FT1. The polar flow app needs a lot of enhancements and leaves much to be desired from this runner.
