    "This watch is quite classy looking. There is much to love about it. Only thing is like with other electronic devices, the battery life can be unpredictable. It can last 2 days to 1/2 a day. More strength in this department is needed."

    "I wanted to get a good smartwatch under 250$ and came across the Timex TW2P94800. This watch looks really nice and has a lot of smart watch functionality like counting steps. It doesn't seem to have an app interface, however, so it is somewhat limited in growth in the future. I recommend this watch to people who want a nice looking watch and limited functionality, but not for advanced users."
