    The idle-reminder, if you've been sitting down for too long, it would be nice to get an vibrating alarm to go move around for a bit. I've had it in previous activity trackers, it's an awesome feature, set between which hours and days it should remind you and as soon as you stop moving, set the timer for a reminder in 60 min or so. 

    This would make the watch perfect!

    Vibration setting:  I’d appreciate it if there were a way to adjust the strength of the vibration.  Right now I think it’s too weak.

    Hands: how about a little color on the tips of the hands on the regular model so it’s easier to see them (I think you already do this on the Sport model).

    Always-On Display: How about an option where you can leave the date or time on the display showing constantly?  I recognize that this may drain the battery faster, but it could nonetheless be an option for people to choose.

    Thanks for asking for our feedback!

    1) Reliability 'feature': watch and software that stops disconnecting and requiring me to open the app to check if it's connected.

    2) Flick to display time: Used in Pebble watches, you can flick your wrist to activate the display. You then don't have to press the button on your watch or reach for phone in pocket. Particularly useful in the dark.

    2b) glow in the dark hands

    Fixing the Strava integration is the main point for me.

    Find my phone would be good too. I'd also like the ability to replace the watch glass when I eventually break it. This should not be a disposable item.

    Can you please adjust the step counter to track also small trips of 5-10 steps? I have also an o2 and that one tracks them, without confusing these with brushing teeth for example. I had almost 500 steps difference between the two devices in only one day...

    Might Withings include VO2 max estimation for cycling and possibly other activities also? I felt a little cheated when, having bought a watch that claimed VO2 estimation, I discovered that was only for runners. My last medical included VO2 max measurement on an exercise bike, so it surely can't be hard to include functionality for cyclists?

    I would like more features added to the alarm. Such as:
    1. choosing how long it will keep vibrating. Currently it’s at 8, I would like it to vibrate until I turn it off or hit snooze.

    2. I would also like the function of the button to be reversed. I would like the single press to be snooze and the long press to turn off the alarm.

    Hi would like some improvement with the notifications. Definitely Need some work doing there. Also the app as well. Agree with the people on the forum. It's been almost 5 months no updates on the watch. Minor update to the app.
    Can we have a roll back option if the app update Is faulty this is a big must
    This should be at the top of list.
    Regards..

    Please add an interval timer feature. Let say, we can setup an interval scheme on our mobile phones and transfer it to the watch.

    **Stand-up-Reminder:**


    issue a Vibration/notification whenever the user did not make any/sufficient steps within a set (via app configurable) timespan.

    This would contribute to the health of anyone working in an office who has to work most of his day on a desk/computer

    Well, I am going to paste the main ideas I got from many months ago :

    1. as said earlier, a finding my phone function would be so great

    2. i'd like you to improve the app and the notifications, I am still receiving only 20% of my notifications, can't figure why it doesn't work all the time, even on the same app. You might think about an option which look inside the phone to find options who might be responsable of that bug (like sleep mode, etc).

    3. when I setup an alarm on the clock, i'd like that the app setup an alarm on the phone himself, for example : if i can't wake up with the vibration of the clock, the phone start ringing after few minutes, so I won't miss my work

    Bonjour Alain,

    I would love to have audio notifications while I'm running each kilometer with what my watch is measuring.

    A replaceable glass. After one year of wear and tear, it's not as good looking as is was.

    I'd really love to have option to count all activities (not only steps but also cycling, swimming and so on) against small hand scale. Right now it shows only steps making it as "advanced" as any $10 Chinese band. The clue is to make it show if you have been active enough on this day. For instance after 50 km cycling you really don't have to do much steps to have your daily activity fullfilled. It is the biggest drawback of all Withings watches so far. Please buy any Polar smartwatch and see how it should be done properly. Polar's watches actually do show even how long and what you should do today to achieve your activity goal. Of course that should be just an option if (for whatever reason) someone would still like to rely on just simple steps counter then why not?

    How about a colour display and support for nfc for card payment a glass replacement option or more scratch resistant glass. Upgrade the vibration mode via the app same as brightness.

    Glad to see you included the stopwatch feature in the list: not having it on the Steel HR Sport is odd.

     

    It would also be useful to be able to set alarms from the watch for reminders.

    Or, if not from the watch itself, at least from inside the app with much more ease (or maybe setting countdowns).

     

    To me the watch is nice, but for the moment I'm not sure it's offering me such features that would make me think it was useful to buy it. Ok sleep analysis and HeartRate, but more than this it's not so functional.

    I need GPS from my phone, I still have to use my phone for reminders\starting calls\stopwatch features.

    Also, notifications: I still haven't been able to figure out what's the logic behind displaying them or not. Sometimes they just don't work, while they work if I'm already looking at my phone (woah).

    A new addition that I'd really like to see is a smart DND mode (where it automatically turns off any notifications when it detects you are sleeping) or failing that a DND scheduler where you can select certain times for notifications to be turned off.

    That would be the one quality of life improvement I'd appreciate the most. I've had a Pebble before (schedule DND times) and an Amazfit Bip (auto/smart notification disable when sleeping, my favourite implementation) which were fantastic.

    The problem with the current implementation (having to open the notification view on the watch, then manually enable/disable) is that I can easily forget to disable it some nights and then get woken up by notifications (which is a major annoyance) or if I forget to enable it again in the morning and miss important notifications. So a smarter/more automatic function would be perfect.

    That's my two cents.

    Can you please:

    1.) track speed and distance via smartphone also when the activity ist detected automatically- not only if I start it manually? I can not understand that issue anyway.

    2.) can you add „Skateboarding“ as activity.

    thanks :)

    Start tracking REM sleep. All other watches do it and I find it valuable for tracking this information. I come from Fitbit and it’s a standard feature.

    Reject phone call by long pressing the watch button. So many times I was unable to take the call and the phone was ringing, the watch was vibrating and I couldn't get to the phone to silence it.
