Ratings and Reviews
I got this watch thinking that it was an alternative to the Apple Watch. I’ve now had this watch for 3 months and I couldn’t be more disappointed in a product. I’d like to think that the main issue is this “wear os by google” application and not the actually watch, but I could be mistaken. My watch is connected to my phone roughly 3 minutes of the entire day, it is continuously trying to download a systems update, it always shows that I’ve walked 0 steps during the day, and despite having Bluetooth and WiFi turned on “automatic”, I NEVER have access to internet. The app tells you to “tap the reconnect icon on your watch”....which gets you nowhere. The help page says to go to “wear os by google > connectivity > WiFi > add network”. It’s interesting advice considering my app is up to date and there is no such option as “connectivity”. I absolutely hate leaving poor reviews like this, but I feel like others should know what they are getting themselves into if they opt for this product. I wouldn’t waste my money on any product that requires this application to operate, until the developers give this application a 360 degree upgrade.
Developer Please Listen to Everyone & Fix!!
Just got the Bradshaw MK Rose Gold watch, and I Loved it!! I was told it was compatible with the iPhone which I have an iPhone 7Plus. I had invested hours of my time to try to figure out how to get notifications at the least! I have been unsuccessful! I think false advertising that it’s compatible with an iPhone is so wrong on Googles part. They have to given false hope to people so they can pay all this money for a watch that will not work on an iPhone. Like y’all don’t get enough money?! I have to mention that I do have an Apple Watch which works wonderfully, but I wanted a variety as I love watches, and this new age digital watch has been intriguing to me. I sat here reading everyone’s reviews, and I think I only read one review that you all replied to, and that in it of itself should show the companies character, and credibility. Listen & Fix the issues y’all have promised or just reimburse everyone for their products, time, frustration, and stress etc. This isn’t worth it! Had I known I would have gotten a basic watch.

Love the watch, hate the app.
I’m an iPhone user who received the Venture HR Gen 4 as a birthday gift and really loved the watch until I had to download this app. The watch is only connected with the phone when the Wear OS app is running in the background.
Tracking my workouts and being able to see details of each workout is important to me. This app does not give detailed, individual workout info but groups an entire day’s activities together making it hard to distinguish what I only accomplished during the workout. Instead I have to log on to google fit on a computer to see more in depth. I also do not understand the concept of “heart points” and “move minutes”. Seems like an attempt to make the app and watch sound more complex than it actually is.
There’s no new or interesting information that the app tells me which makes this app’s only use to be a gateway between my phone and watch.
