I like the sound of the 184. Let's hope they put a parachute on it too.

Purchased this fabo smart watch and strongly recommend it.

Never comes off now except for once a week for a quick charge.

Heart rate and activity detection is great. Don't look at it unless doing something taxing. Resting heart beat is 56. Says I'm an athlete.

Was also doing a bit of wii-fit with my daughter and said my age was 28. Really now what can I possibly say??? If not for my joints I could fill in for Superman

Also provides excellent calorie burn and consumption stats with pre-listed foods which you can also add to.

No need to fiddle with it as it automatically detects whether one is walking, cycling or running or climbing stairs. Very clever product.


One snag is original setup as you do need to upgrade firmware. Once that's done bluetooth setup and synch is effortless.


Super great buy
