Pros
Not a lot
Cons
This is NOT a GPS watch it! It cannot be used at all without an iPhone
• • •

The marketing around this device is misleading. The watch is nothing more than a time piece without the connect to an iPhone. The watch will work with an iPod or iPad but since they don't have GPS receivers the tracking data is very inaccurate. Regret this purchase so far. I can only hope the long awaited android app is available soon...

Pros
wouldn't know
Cons
Lack of android support, miss-leading website
• • •

I bought this watch on-line after being redirected from the Magellan echo webpage to a retailers website, I received the watch and was horrified to find that the watch isn't Android compatible, rechecking the website there is no mention of a compatibility issue, there are however numerous mentions of how the watch works with "smartphones" and even a picture of an Android phone...

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
