    "I've always struggled from sleeping problems. I have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. This watch has helped me see my sleeping patterns and see if anything changes when I drink something different from one night to the next or the food I eat. It really has shown me how to fix my sleep. It's also a great watch for exercising but I really liked the sleeping program on it so if you suffer from this too I would highly recommend."

    "Compared to other smart watches, this one was really priced nicely. Unfortunately, this one seemed really glitchy, unreliable, and not very durable. If you want something more consistent that lasts longer, you're going to need to invest in a different watch that may cost more money."

    "I am very disappointed in this product. The clasp is terrible, I end up having to stop what I'm doing several times throughout my workout to re-attach it. Secondly, the heart rate monitor is very unreliable. These major cons have outweighed the pros for me."
