I think whether or not you are happy with this product depends on what you expect to get out of it. It is NOT a smartwatch, but a basic MP3 player that includes some other functions, but at the end of the day for a variety of reasons this product is only really suited to working as a basic MP3 player.

The watch screen itself is a good size, and the strap is very adjustable in order to fit all wrist sizes. The plastic strap is a bit uncomfortable, but I got used to it. You can use this watch to play music, count your steps, and record your voice, and it does a good job at pretty much all three of those things.

Unfortunately, this watch is designed to be connected to bluetooth headphones, and that causes a few problems. The battery life when connected via bluetooth is barely 2 hours, so keep that in mind if you plan to use it a lot, or be prepared to recharge it often. As well, when connected to bluetooth headphones your watch is locked into playing music, and you cannot access you settings, your step counter, your voice recorder, or anything else. You also cannot choose to play certain albums or playlists, as the watch forces you to play all of you music shuffled at random if you're using bluetooth headphones.

You can connect wired headphones to get around those issues, but then you have a wire attaching your ears to your wrist, which quickly became annoying for me. When using the watch, I found that the controls were not well explained in the manual, and they felt very un-intuitive. All menus have scroll bars, even if there's only one page, and when you do try to move between pages it just jumps, so there's no scrolling at all. Trying to manage settings or even changing my music on the go was more difficult than it should have been.

In general, if you just want a basic MP3 player to play all your music on shuffle (and the watch does have 16gb of storage, plenty of room) with your bluetooth headphones, then this will work. Sadly I can't recommend it to most people for anything else.
