For the last 4 weeks while anticipating the arrival of this smartwatch, I spent probably too much time watching YouTube videos and reading every forum entry I could find. I’ve been obsessed with the idea of only carrying a watch for years and it truly seems like we are there.
I am a little confused at how little these watches are reported on though. The Optimus pro is so much better than any review that I have read or watched. Also, zero big name reviewers seem to want to talk about them?? They review all the Wear Os devices (which are rather lame) but none of these. Come on mainstream, get with the program… You will eventually, you always do.
It’s absolutely crazy to me that the big companies are focusing on wear os instead of this full custom Android OS. I had a few Waer OS devices and they’re a sad state of affairs to say the least.
The Optimus Pro looks so much better in person than in photos, build quality seems surprisingly great and it’s much lighter than expected(much).
Music, podcast, Whatsapp, messenger, Google voice, Strava all work the same as on a phone, just smaller screen.
Obviously the only issue I have is that I would like the battery to last forever. So that’s not really realistic I’m sure it’ll keep improving.
I’m on the latest OTA firmware. Decided not to install the one posted by Pablo. Would love to, seems risky.
So, yea, I’m stoked. Like a dream coming true haha
I also have a dream to make a in depth video review of battery life, apps and usage… We’ll see if that happens.!
