    Hi, if you are very, very patient then keep the watches and wait for the many faults to be hopefully eventually fixed, but at present rate it could take months or years. If you're not patient then return the watches immediately and spend your hard earned money elsewhere. I missed the return window and I'm very disappointed ☹️

    @ccaallen. Thanks for the advice. Well they've arrived. My heart sank initially as the update (that was apparently required) kept failing! I've persevered and things seem to be OK. So I'll see how I get on for 2 or 3 days before deciding. My experience with FitBit (after a good start) was pretty poor. The only thing stopping me getting an Apple Watch is the absurd battery life of less than18 hours. Not much of a watch that won't run for a whole day!

    Hi Mark,

    I use Amazfit watches for my daily 24/7 general duty fitness and activities. (My only interest with Scanwatch was for ECG which works reasonably well, but for activities it is pretty poor). My current favourite is the Amazfit GTR (£95 on Amazon UK), personal choice, I don't bother with notifications and the watch regularly goes 3-4 weeks between charges. A good hike ~ 10-15km with gps on only takes at the most 10% battery. It also has compass and barometer. Like all of the Amazfit watches I've had it just works out of the box and gets on with the job while I get on with mine !

    Good luck with the Scanwatch, hopefully it will get better with age!

    I’m using it for a few weeks now. Very happy with it. Sleep/wake-up times can be adjusted easily. Even (rarely) incorrect activities can be changed or deleted afterwards. The ECG/SPo2 works fine and require stable positioning and room without heavy noice for short period. The greatest feature is SPo2 and heart rate monitoring during the night. And the health app provides loads of details. So give it a try and take some time to get used to it. Most likely you will keep it. As for updates from Withings, they arrive frequently. They seem to be well tested slowing update frequency a little bit but it is worth the wait!
