Great Watch That Has Helped Me Lose WeightI purchased this watch over others due to its clinically validated readings particularly for the continuous heart rate monitoring as it is very accurate. I have compared this watches readings with my doctors heart rate monitor and there was only 2 beats difference which is accurate.
I like the way it gives you a clear total calorie burn reading and active calories burned so you are better educated and informed at the end of the day to see if you have achieved a calorie deficit which I wanted to do as my main aim was to lose weight and I have lost eight stone in 8 months so yes this watch can really motivate you.
I like the Philips Health App also which is very well laid out and gives you clear information on how you have done.
Adding calorie info from the watch is very useful although you can add this info from your phone app but this wont sync to the watch so its best to always add the information from the watch to sync with the app and not the other way round. the watch has a metal body and feels very well made.
Sleep mode is good although you do have to manually set this before going to sleep and switch it off on waking but again it is very precise and gives you all the information needed to see how well you are sleeping.
I notice Philips have a health band on also which I am interested in purchasing for my partner but there is no availability info for this at the moment although its featured on the Philips website but will be purchasing this when it is available.
Overall I am very pleased and if you are looking for accurate readings that are clinically validated then this watch will not disappoint. It also looks like a watch also so can be worn at all functions without looking out of place on your wrist.
Overall I would recommend the Philips Health Watch and I am looking forward to the Philips Health Band once it becomes available.

Smart but not that smart!I really had high hopes for this smartwatch but unfortunately they've been put on hold. It looks great when you get it out of the box - very smart looking with the glossy black face area. As a female I'd have preferred it to be a little slimmer but I soon got used to it. The watch itself is easy to navigate and you can use it on the move to add basic meals but these are set to a specific calorie value for small, medium and large choices which isn't very helpful if you are trying to be precise about your intake. I couldn't fins anywhere to change this so assume it's not possible but in that same menu on the watch you can just input a calorie amount as well. You can be more specific in the app though and there is the option to select specific foods within that. The BPM was useful to monitor and as far as I can tell also pretty accurate. Within the watch menu you can also set alarms and timers and measure periods of walking, running and cycling. There's also a sleep function on there but as you have to remember to set it going and switch it off manually I haven't actually used that much! My main gripe with this product is that I can't access so many of it's functions or actual analysis because it just won't synch with my phone for more than about 24 hrs at a time and, despite unpairing and pairing, unistalling and reinstalling the app, taking the watch back to factory settings on numerous occasions, it still doesn't. For an expensive piece of kit that's a huge disappointment and the main reason I feel unable to recommend it at this point in time.

I love this Health Watch!!!!When I received Health Watch I was really impressed. This watch is so elegant. The strap is black and not irritates your skin. Before you can use it, you need to charge the watch first and then you can sync it with the app. I was having few problems during the first two weeks to sync my mobile with the app, so I could not set up my goals. I think my Samsung Galaxy S6 was playing with me. I updated my mobile and all is perfect now!!! I found it great to know how active I am during the day. App is showing me how many calories I burnt during the day, how many steps I made and also how many active minutes I had. This app is keeping all data and helps you to improve your health. Battery life is around 3-4 days. The quality of the watch is great. The display is very easy to read during the day or by night – the Philips Health Watch is equipped with touch- activated backlights. The screen is not touchscreen. To choose one of the options from the watch you need to tap the ring around the screen. Watch have both digital and analogue clock. After my injury last year and having few problems with my blood pressure, I found this watch perfect for me!! I can now track all my activities and also check my heart rate!!! And what is great the most – this watch is telling you when you should get up and move more! You can even input what foods you've eaten directly into the watch, without using the app all the time. I can monitor my sleep and this helps me to obtain good mental and physical conditions. I love this watch!! I will recommend it to all my family and friends.

Unable to use in the UKTo use the watch you need to download an app. The app is not available to users in the UK and hence is unstable. The technical help line or chat send you round in circles but the bottom line is you can't use the product in the UK. Luckily I won this in a draw whilst attending a professional conference for health professions. Such a let down.

Great watch, easy to use, stylish & ComfortableFor first week the app wasn’t working when i tried to apply my goals, i.e. how many steps i wanted to complete and calories I wanted to burn. Once the app was updated this was working. I found it great to know how active i was being throughout the day. Very easy to use. When updating my data i had to keep syncing the watch to the app, would be much easier if the data was updated daily.
Great watch to help keep track of your daliy activity, automically counts your steps throughout the day. You can also start tracking these yourself by just selecting which activity you are doing. Great feature that tells you when you need to get up and move if you have been sitting for a period of time. You can turn the vibrate feature off if you would rather it didnt vibrate. Lights up so you can check time throughtout the night. It keeps track of your heat rate. resting heart rate, calorie intake. It also has a stop watch and an alarm. It has a lock feature so you can lock screen when not in use.
It is very easy to use and to charge battery life is very good. i have only had to charge every four days, charging is very quick as well.
I would love the watch to come with maybe coloured straps hopefully in the future philips may bring out different colours.
First day i kept trying to swipe screen, but once you get used to the touch sensitive area it is great.
Would recommened this watch to anyone looking to keep track of there health. As it allows you to enter in your current weight and allows you to select how much weight you want to loose of a period of time. Which is why i wanted this watch.

A great motivator to get fitThe Philips health watch and its App has been a very useful tool and motivator in just over 1 month of use since using it as a Philips product tester. I am looking at my activity levels daily, trying to reach or exceed my 10000 step levels (though not always succeeding), and I am often surprised how active I actually am with my normal work and movements throughout the day.
It is encouraging me to go for longer and more brisk walks, with some steeper climbs too. The heart rate graph is interesting to look at for those moments of ‘harder work’ and to realize that it’s not that difficult to get a good cardio workout.
The activity level monitor does push me to do that little bit more on my more lazy days.
The burnt calorie graph is very useful in conjunction with the food intake. The App allows inputting food calories intake, with a large choice of food products available to choose from – though in my case this very often did not match my meals. So maybe this is more for the dedicated ‘calorie counter’, whereas I am quite happy to eyeball my intake and compare it with the daily calorie burn.
I have certainly gained motivation and a higher fitness level in using the watch and App.
The sleep mode doesn't always record fully, despite wearing the watch correctly and fairly tightly. Looking at the sleep pattern graphs can be quite interesting though when compared with the next day level of alertness.
This is a useful tool to perhaps regulate ones evening and late night habits.
The watch functions are easy to use with taps and swipes.
The screen is well lit for night use, its’ size is not too chunky to distract with a comfortable wrist band.

Great watch & excellent featuresI found this kept me very motivated, I loved that you could track your calorie intake by adding your meals via the free app which is easy to use, also tracking how active I was by giving me the little reminder by telling me when I had to move was a feature I really liked as this really prompted me to get up and move more.
By the second week of wearing the watch my steps had gone up dramatically as had my active minutes As this watch tracks your sleep I have wore it to bed and have found it to be comfortable and in no way has it caused me any problems in bed , I found this to be another great feature about the watch setting the sleep mode.
I found it easy to navigate the watch after my first few goes of wearing , and now I wouldn't be without it! Battery life is excellent on average 3-4 days, charges very quickly. Watch features both digital and analogue clock for easy choice with easy to use touch dial feature.
The app on my phone is great and very easy to understand, it shows everything clearly displayed . The only downside I found was the charging lead was very short
