Expert Reviews

6 August 2015

On the one hand it's a bit frustrating having bought the original version of this because this feels like the product that EVGA should have released back in August last year. But on the other hand...

Run and cycle routes mapped out
3GB of music storage
Digital coaching
Dual-boot machine that can operate on both Android and Windows OS
Excellent set of stereo speakers
Disappointing activity and sleep tracking
Unattractive design
Proprietary charging dock
No LED flash
Lower resolution screen than its competition
