We have packed on a few pounds ‘Merica. Did you know that you can actually find places that will take a stick of butter and fry it for you? If we were able to surgically just place the fat into our love handles, we would. Taco Bell just came out with a breakfast that has created a breakfast taco that has a waffle in the place of the tortilla. We agree that it sounds incredibly delicious but we run into the problem of calorie city. We aren’t telling you to carb count every meal but if there is some technology out there that can help you be healthier, why not?
We received a demo product of the PAPAGO GoWatch 770 which was something of a difficult thing to classify at first. We wanted to just assume that it was another fitness tracker but it also had some unique “smart watch” type of capabilities too. When we first received the GoWatch, the packaging was the first thing that wowed us (which some people think is a waste and doesn’t matter but we disagree). The package showed that they cared about every aspect and we hoped it carried over into the product. One of the problems that the GoWatch addressed was the different types of fitness and changed it’s tracking based upon that (i.e. hiking, cycling, running, marathon training, and indoor activities). GoWatch can also act as a personal trainer by analyzing your current workout data and recommend the next level of workouts.
We loved how light the actual band was and that they had made it waterproof so you didn’t have to worry about messing it up by sweating too much or getting stuck in a rainstorm. We did struggle a bit with getting the GoWatch on our wrist and it seemed to have a little awkwardness fitting on our wrist (it could just be that we have dainty weird wrists but want to give an honest review). The software that PAPAGO has their fitness watch run on was very intuitive and we were most impressed with the analytic side and how it shows your progress and results of each workout. The ability to set goals and have the GoWatch help you take the steps required to complete those goals in the specified time. It all syncs with Google Maps so you can see the exact route you went on during the workout.
Gadgets 4 Guys liked how simple and easy it was to use the GoWatch 770 and that the battery was pretty darn good on it too (up to 20 days on a single charge when in just watch mode). We did have some problems with how it fit around our wrist but the look of it made up for that. The back light was nice for those that jog and have a hard time viewing their stats in the middle of their workouts. We haven’t had a hands on with the Fitbit Flex or Jawbone so we can’t do a direct comparison quite yet. Overall, a great fitness tracker with a few extra features we didn’t anticipate.
