App is good but few problems

Good app that allow tracking to steps and allowance. But one thing is that some outside retailers don’t accept the smart buddy. I tried it in all NETS retailers like 7-11 or Sheng Siong, but it got declined. I tried it again and it can’t work. I have yet to try it in school since it is the school holidays but it is just that the Smart Buddy can’t be used on some outside retailers. I even tried it with Fast Food chains like KFC or McDonalds. In school sometimes, some stores are limited. But it is a great app it is just the Smart Buddy Watch. Additionally, I noticed that sometime I try to open the watch, it showed me a grey screen and it closed by itself. But overall it was an okay experience.

Smart Buddy Watch

I have 3 kids using Smart Buddy watch. Their expenses can be tracked and now we even talked more on daily basis on their expenditures and experiences when using the Smart Buddy Watch. In my end, I’ve experienced some difficulties regards to their balances. I hope that the unused amount can be automatically credited to their respective accounts by the end of each week and they can view how much balance that they have for the day or week. With technology it should makes our life easier not a hassle. It consumes battery like there’s no tomorrow. I need to charge it on daily basis and with micro USB it hours to recharge it. This is so inconvenient and messy.
