    For instance: I have the Amazfit Bip, which works with AliPay (you can show the QR code), which is cool... but it doesn't support AliPay HK

    No clue what will happen with the new one. I'd like to see if lightning strikes twice.
    Hi, has the 2nd one been ok for you? Was thinking of getting this one - hence checking.

    No it stopped working a few months later. Don't intent to replace it.

    The new Xiaomi watch sounds like a winning combination- an 8 year old chip with a practically dead OS. At least they've come up with some original, cutting edge design.

    It is most likely the material used to encase the sensor not agreeing with the skin on your wrist. I suspect it is a plastic of some sort. No one likes having plastic rubbed on their skins as they are actually quite abrasive.

    Please go for ceramic backed smart watches. Ceramic is harder and smoother.

    I can assure you it was a burn ... have a scar to prove it and the watch surface near the sensor was *hot*

    Sometimes the sensor on my smartwatch turns on for some unknown reason. It is certainly warmer than body temperature, but not hot as was the case for you. What a terrible product experience. What do you wear now?
