Cool!
thanks for your review,

about the whatsapp notification, do I need to do any thing special ? aka steps to syn / Bluetooth it ? or it is auto?

can I read the full message? or just part of it ?

any other messenger apps can syn / wechat / Skype / Viper / Telegram?


I am waiting for local set, cos I wana try the actual size, (should be Large for me) ...

hopefully next week -

will be buying some third party watch strap & tempered glass tonite / weekend (amazon seems to have more selection compare to taobao)
For the WhatsApp notifications you will have to setup initially in the app, as posted in the ss above under text notifications. Have your Bluetooth switched on at all times , like how you would use your regular smartwatch/ Fitness trackers , the message will pop up.

Currently I can read all the words in the messages. I have yet to test the word count limit though. I doubt wall of text can get through entirely on the charge 2 :p

I do not use any of those apps you have mentioned. Apologies if I can't test them out. I do use LINE and BBM, but they are not showing as an option ( as also posted in the ss above)

You can receive call notifications.
Text notifications ( sms , messenger, hangouts , WhatsApp)
Calendar notifications

I used to own a fitbit one then jawbone up 3. Currently syncing with my BlackBerry Priv.

You need to manually start an exercise. Like run or cycling. Go to your charge 2 switch to run then hold on the button until the GPS connected is shown. Then proceed to run with your phone. End the run thereafter.

Sorry I missed that part.

Go to your fitbit app. Tap on the top left corner - tap friends - tap the + icon - connect your facebook there.

Once connected, go to the workout/exercise activity . Click on it then there is a share button with options to take a selfie photo with it.
