Basis Peak Recall
I've been a happy consumer with a Basis Peak for almost a year now. Personally, I find the whole recall to be "completely compromising the user experience," and a majority of the 99.8% without this defect would likely agree. Very few wearable HRM and smartwatches can match its functionality: sleep monitoring, step & calorie counting, bluetooth connectivity to apps like Strava, auto-sensing workout activity, call & TXT notification, silent alarm clock, stopwatch, music playback control, and continues working underwater! I'll likely have to buy 2 or more devices to get the same level of service, which is a huge PITA. Even if I wanted to continue using my Basis Peak (at my own risk), Intel is going to shutdown the cloud interface at year's end, so I won't be able to analyze my data. (The watch only displays stats for the current day. Sleep info and all historical stats are visible through the cloud and mobile app sync.) Perhaps they really don't know how widespread or probability of worsening as devices age. But I certainly don't feel compelled to send mine back at this point.
