I am the owner of a LG Urbane LTE since june and very happy with it. I use it as a cell phone very often and have my smartphone number forwarded permanently to it. I also use with the Ghostracer app for running 3 times a week, the GPS is flawless and for the HR, i use a Bluetooth Polar HR belt. On a normal day, with 45 min running, 10 min calls, a few SMS conversation and notification on for all my apps and screen on all the time, i get around 18 hours of battery life (a normal day for me).
Now, that being said, i wish it was more autonomous and would not require to talk to my smartphone over 3G all the time to get most of the apps working well. I got interested in those China made full android smartwatches recently and even purchased a Omate Rise that i did not like because of the look and size of it. But, it got me looking at other watches and i am really liking the Finow X3+. The look is almost identical to my LG Urbane LTE and with the current specs it has (Android 5.1, 1 GB ram and 8GB rom) it meets what i am looking for.
But… I’d like to hear what you have to say regading the following items:
-With my current usage, do you think i could have it running for 18 hours? With screen on (dim mode)?
-How is GPS when used with 3G on (and A-GPS)? Does it work well enough to be used worn on your wrist while running outside?
-How’s the sound quality of the speaker and mic? Is it loud enough? Can the other parties hear you out well when you are talking using the watch on your wrist?
-What about Bluetooth? Does it maintain connection in a stable way? I plan on using it with bluetooth headset and in my car?
I know i might be asking for a lot here but your answer will help me decide on trying it out or not…
Thanks in advance
