    • Loving this watch - replaced my Garmin Vivoactive HR
      by

      from Port Elmsley, ON on January 5, 2019

      Really enjoying this watch for the week that I've had it! I had one other FitBit in the past, had a bad experience with their customer service/warranty policy and swore I wouldn't buy another one...and yet here I am, though this time I will be relying on Best Buys' warranty. The screen is very clear, sharp and well lit, even outside in bright light. The apps on the watch are very functional, though remembering how to navigate to each one takes a small amount of practice. The GPS is a little slow to connect to outer space, but once connected seems to be quite stable. The band is comfortable and comes with both small and large bands in the box; I've never had a band that is easier to change, amazing design. A quick, daily charge, while in the shower, keeps the battery topped up. The PC and iOS interfaces work very well; however, I am noticing that it does not seem to work as well with 3rd party apps, namely MyFitnessPal, as did my Garmin.


    • Very Good Fitness Watch with Some Smartwatch Features
      by

      from Canada on December 3, 2018

      Does what is important for me like playing music on its own and syncing GPS data to Strava both ways over WIFI. The interface is ok but a bit clunky and not smooth as expected. My watch has crashed a number of times and rebooted on its own so there are stability issues. Had bluetooth connections problems with the Jabra Elite Active but was able to get a consistent pairing after a complete reset back to new. All my other bluetooth devices paired up fine. Songs do take forever (hours) to transfer over WIFI and initial connections sometimes get lost making the experience frustrating. Notifications appear but depending on the phone and software version you may or may not be able to respond directly. So a number of bugs yet to quash. Watch faces and Apps do load via the App and some are pretty good for free. But bottom line is will keep this watch and even just ordered a couple different aftermarket straps for some variety. If you want music onboard and bluetooth and Strava this watch can do it standalone. Even with all its shortcomings the watch is a definite buy when compared to other offerings.


    • Don't listen to the bad reviews
      by

      from Calgary, AB on October 2, 2018

      I was looking for a while for the best smartwatch/fitness watch for me and kept coming back to the Ionic because of like the Fitbit brand so much and have had a lot of luck with them in the past. Every review on Best Buy was terrible at the time so I refrained from purchasing for a while. But every single person I met in person that had one LOVED it and couldn't believe that it had gotten bad reviews. I ended up biting the bullet when it went on sale and I absolutely love it. A bit of glitches setting it up - you require a computer to sync music. It cannot be done any other way - so that's weird. But the GPS is great and accurate. I get a solid 4-5 days of battery life out of it - and it has an altimeter which was really important to me because I live in the mountains and hike frequently. I particularly like that I can use Fitbit coach and can do an exercise class right from my watch. It's a great product and Fitbit is a great company to deal with. My mom recently received a brand new replacement when her watch battery life got shorter. Whatever the bad reviews were they certainly seem to have worked out the glitches.
