Do you use it with an Android phone or Apple? How’s Android support on these things?

I use it with an Android phone with the Huawei Health app without any problem.
Edit: At the very first time the watch got a new updated at least five times till it received the latest firmware.

I’m also wearing a smartwatch (a good old Pebble Time, bought second-hand on ebay 2 years ago) on workdays, but on the contrary I don’t care about the fitness functions and only care for the notifications Big Smile

Since last year I’ve tested a few cheap (~20€) chinese connected watches and none of them can surpass my Pebble Time for my use!

Most of the time these chinese watches are OK but the companion software (on Android at least) is garbage. And notification display is disappointing : only the first few words on the screen, so what’s the deal of having a text notification on your watch that tells you nothing and forces you to fetch your phone Facepalm )

So for me : Great notifications + lightweight software = Pebble Time + GadgetBridge app on Android

Flashlights, blades & beer
Let’s stay relatively optimist!

Makes sense. Mornings can be a little froggy, but then it clears up and you can take a long range view. Cool

Komodos were supposed to be available for sale yesterday. Apparently so many people lined up to buy them, they crashed Helm’s website. LOL!

I really dig this orange one.

Yep me too … I’m in line for a Black Dial Komodo with blue lume. I am a big fan of Helm. I have nothing but great things to say about my experience with Helm watches.

Good luck with snagging an Orange Komodo … great watch … Smile

I was a part of that mess. Then I got the email for the do over yesterday, and all the white dials were gone 5 minutes in. An hour in, the cupboard was bare

Haha… I was really tempted by that orange one, alas, I just couldn’t justify sinking $300 into something that I will almost never wear. I already have a bunch of watches that sit and collect dust.

WTH do the #‘s mean?

It’s a dive bezel, used for measuring elasped time:

When at default position the numbers match up with the minutes hand on the dial on most watches too unless it has a “dual time” or GMT bezel.

Text on the dial is just what the water resistance depth rating is in meters and feet.

Yeah, I had one of those back in the ’90s. Surprised to learn not long ago that they still make them, they’re $20 on Amazon.
