Battery

Battery:
"My biggest complaint previously was that the battery died after a year, and you had to go to a retailer to replace."
_
"But then it did maintain the connection after that.6) When I first received it and had problems pairing the A300 with the H7, I wondered if maybe the battery was missing from the H7."
_
"Ive seen online where people have ruined the threads on the battery cover while replacing the battery."
_
"The only complaint I can say is the watch is a bit thicker than I like (but the 1 month battery life is nice) and the display is a bit dated (but easy to understand and contains useful info)."
_
"For my Fitbit Zip, the manufacturer thoughtfully supplied a little plastic key that fits the battery cover perfectly."
_
"Im sure it couldnt have cost Fitbit more than half a penny, and it was a nice touch.7) The instructions for removing the battery from the H7 heart monitor are almost comical, suggesting that you use a sharp-edged knife to pry the battery out."
_
"Easy menu, heart rate monitor is relatively accurate, very easy to charge, battery lasts quite long."
_
"Amazing watch and the battery life is true."
_
"Great design and the battery lasts a long time."
