Onboarding in the app worked well, BLE connected without a problem and fast.
The setup experience was a little long, but it didn’t bother me too much, clear explanation of why access to certain things are needed is very good.
I would get rid of the out of focus background image, it’s annoying, I think plane white background is cleaner and clearer. It’s especially bad when reading the TOS. It feels like you don’t want anyone to be able to read that …
I would have liked to start the trial of pro at a later date (when I’ll actually use it), so it was annoying that I didn’t have the choice to do that. I would also start talking about pro at a later point. Right now it feels like I bought pricey hardware, and now I have to pay even more in subscription form to actually use it. Which is entirely not the case. Maybe when I try accessing those features via the app, mention pro and ask me if I want to trial it. That way I already played around with the messaging part and I’m already happy I spend the money on the hardware.
bugreport: can’t seem to download any maps (‘error loading available maps, …’), main map doesn’t update either, just seeing world overview if I zoom out a lot. I’m on a very slow connection, but I do have a connection.
Hardware unboxing was good, cardboard could be a little thicker to give that more expensive feeling, but I was totally happy with it, knowing the hardware in the devices is high quality.
Why is the pull tab on the white box on the bottom though? I open boxes from the top, maybe I’m weird. Pull tab on both sides could be a solution.
Device itself looks great. Edges on the 2 plastic covers could be a little straighter / cleaner / tighter, especially on the bottom. I also would’ve placed the edge gate on the strap in a different location (under the clasp) so the whole strap looks cleaner and more straight. LEDs are nice and bright Gap of the sonic weld is pretty wide, but that also gives me the feeling that it’s water resistant, since I can see that the seam is actually closed Also ultrasonic welding is hard. Also theses are very small nitpicky details.
All in all very happy and good experience, can’t wait to test it out more thoroughly!
