It is very light weight and I can change the background to anything I want as I have already done. The clock can be changed to look different and there are more apps you can get to change it farther. It is also water and dust resistant and the main piece pops out of the band to allow for other colors if desired.
The reason I decided to go with this one even though it currently doesn't connect with the Runtastic apps is because like a phone or tablet, it can receive updates. Which means that's its functionality will continue to improve without me having to buy a new one.
The only issue I'm having is that I've not worn a watch or bracelet regularly for so long that it feels out of place on my wrist. But that is something that I will get used to with time so I am very happy with it.
