Displaymen – is it any good, and should you buy one?
Well, it’s a distinctive piece of tech that at first can be hard to get your head around, or even to quite know what it does.

The Apple Watch’s battery life has concerned many prospective customers, as Apple said only that the Watch will need to be charged nightly. Earlier this year, we reported that Apple’s development targets for Apple Watch battery life were 2.5-4 hours for heavy app usage, versus 19 hours per day of combined usage between light app access, notifications, and Glances.

What people say?
DevidApple Watch is good, but better suited on the wrists of early adopters and boutique shop regulars. It's convenient but there's a learning curve you have to overcome and a high price that some people won't be able to get around.
LisaAs an early adopter of these products, I’ve pretty much seen them all and used many of them myself, ever since the original Fitbit which didn’t even have an app for years (which I was actually fine with). My boyfriend thinks I’m nuts, but whatever, over the years, we’ve both seen a real impact that these things have made in my life.
AmandaAdI’ve tried most of the main activity trackers out there - going all the way back to the Fitbit Ultra (which broke), the Fitbit One, the Jawbone UP, and most recently tried the Fitbit Flex - I’ve stopped using it now that I’ve lost the charger twice and have been too lazy to call in to get a another charger. So, I decided to try the Shine!
