"b) Display seems quite OK, could have been better in SUNLIGHTc) Its very lightweightd) The size seems bit on large side , should have been option of selecting Medium vs Largee) The product is not scratch resistant at all and I can see couple of them surfacing every now & thenf) Would have been NICE if it could have picked up SLEEP by itself instead of selecting it every night and believe me, one can forget it till it becomes part of your sleeping habitg) This automatically figures out Activity (for e. g. Running or Walking) which is great."
