It's quick to connect and keep synchronised with my Garmin Connect phone app, when recording steps, etc.
I love how I receive text messages, Messenger messages, advice of phone calls, it can play music on my phone, get weather reports, and much more - all coming to my wrist. I tend to keep my phone on silent but can answer it as soon as I see who's calling, via my Garmin on my wrist.
I've had mine for 5 years and use it non-stop and I love it.
Battery needs recharging after 3 days.
Yes, I recommend this product.
