    Please keep this to pics of your OTHER wearable devices.

    Since some of this forum is getting a little redundant with post about size gate, scratch gate, shipping gate etc. I thought this would be something fresh.

    Post a pic of you wearing your Other Wearable if you own one, and maybe a little bit about it. And if your still using it. I'll start.

    While waiting [ impatiently ] for the roll out of the Apple Watch I started looking at other smart watches/trackers.

    I settled on the Microsoft Band ($199). Albeit it was fairly new (released fall 2014) it had some promising features and a wealth of sensors that could make it real interesting down the road.

    It seems to work pretty well as a fitness tracker and has some nice smartwatch features also, although some of them are limited when connected to a iPhone.

    It will show me caller ID or contact name if it's stored in my phone, a few lines of incoming emails and text messages, notifications, weather, Facebook notifications, Twitter, UV exposure , heart rate and THE TIME! Lol along with other fitness related items.

    Band is not real aesthetically pleasing however I don't think it looks that bad IMHO. Most people wear it with the screen on the inside of the wrist and that's how I like it. I do find it comfortable to wear after the first 24 hours of getting used to it. The battery last a solid 2 days being on constantly. You can have the time displayed all the time if you choose too, that cuts the battery down to 1 1/2 days.

    Overall I'm am very pleased with the band. Now that I have the AW, I use the band for sleep tracking, which it does very well, whilst my AW is charging overnight. Sometimes I really miss wearing the band during the day for some odd reason, maybe because it is a kind of a cool piece of tech, but it doesn't compare to the expanded functionality of my Apple Watch.

    $199 for stainless steel with rose gold trim and leather band? Unlimited high quality leather and canvas bands from Fossil for $15-$25 with quick release pins? Always on watch face and 60% battery at bedtime? Wearing a watch my significant other does not find dorky? Asus knocked it out of the park.

    All the specs you mention sound good. But way to big for my liking.

    I think you should narrow the definition of what you want to see posted.

    You might get what you wished for and what has been seen cannot be unseen!
    :eek:

    I have really tiny wrists. As in one or two notches from the tightest setting on leather bands. This is the only smartwatch that I can wear so far since it is not tall and does not have a crown to jam into my hand when I bend my wrist. Much more comfy than my usual Fossil mechanicals.

    It's running Android 1.1.1 as we speak. Only function it is missing is a wifi antenna, but I still cannot figure out a use for that function. If I am out somewhere that has wifi, then I'm going to have my phone in my pocket. If I go out jogging, I sync my bt headphones to the zenwatch and listen to the playlists I loaded on it. When I get home it syncs my steps to my phone. I guess if I had a bigger home wifi would come into play.
