    I am still using my Lumia 535 DS for calls, messages and specially for WhatsApp and outlook calendar from last three year.
    Which app do you use most on WP10?

    Is this working better now? I remember that there were issues in the beginning. Do you still need an android for the initial setup?

    You need to pair it to android at first, in order to run the updates.

    After that it works, and there's no issues. It doesn't tell you content of the notification, but it lets you know you have one. And it tracks steps, kms, does heart rate, and all that works with the apps. Does alarms too.

    Mi Band 3 is out soonish. It also included better sleep tracking, and a paywave payment system, some excerise auto-detection, and it also is fully water proof. Still has the same battery life of like 6 days (which is nice). It also displays full content of notifications. It may have GPS? IDK

    But there's of course no apps for that yet on W10m. There's also a deskop beta for the mi band 2.

    So I love mi band 2, works with windows 10M, and it's cheap as hell. lots of nice third party straps too. But if I move onto something else, I'm confused. The band 3 isn't supported yet (may end up being, may not).

    The only other similar device that's supported really is the pricier fitbit ones - and yeah they look great and add a few extra on the band 3, like local storage for music, and inbuilt gps, but for the price, well it's more than 3 x more expensive than the band 3 and 4-5 times more than the band 2

    So I am really hoping that when the band 3 with NFC payments comes out, the software developer than makes the Mi Band stuff for windows phone is still interested in working that out too. Because the only things I want to actually add are NFC payments and notification content displaying on my watch. Guess I'll have to see.

    All the same, I've love, and still love my mi band 2. That killer battery life is lovely. It looks quite nice too, distinct from all the other designs. I got it on a leather strap atm, for going out. But its excellent for long walks because you can track when you hit the fat burning zone heartrate wise. Lets me know in the gym too if I am hitting max heart rate for high intensity.

    I like really just to get notification contents rather than just 'you have notification' and NFC payments so I can leave my phone at home.

    I don't use a lot of apps on my 950. Maybe that's one reason Win10m stills works well for me.
    Outlook Mail app - I wish they'd bring dark theme support to the Android version.
    Reddplanet - love it. Baconit was also good, but mysteriously went from dark grey to black background
    OneNote - for most important notes
    Notebook Library - light weight, and has dark theme(even editing)
    Neutron Player - for music
    Music Wall - also for music
    Fitbit - only to record walking at work

    Thanks for the full rundown! My 640 is mostly a secondary wifi only phone. I've been on the fence with smartwatches lately. My fitbit charge bit the dust last month after about 1.5 years. I was planning to get the Charge HR 2, but the Miband 3 offers somewhat similar functionality for a cheaper price lol. I mostly just need the silent alarm/sleep tracking/timer and notifications

    Well they haven't released the international/NFC version yet of the miband 3, just the Chinese version, although for those purposes I'm not sure it'd make a lot of difference. Other version shouldn't be far off anyway though.

    I'm quite a fan of xiaomi products. Generally good quality, but a lot cheaper, they have quite a few IoT type things like smart scales, robot vacuum cleaners etc.

    Yes. Here in South Florida it's a duopoly between them and Pay By Phone.

    The company running my city car park came out with an app last year. Its a weird privatisation structure, they are only able to collect monies from people, dish out hefty fines to defaulters. But strangely they have no legal standing. If anyone decides not to pay, they can't take any legal action. Even the local municipality can't go after the defaulters.

    The app is only on iOS & play store. No love of WP, which is just as well. Haha

    I'm probably one of the very few people left using a Lumia in the city. Haven't seen one in the wild in eons. The Chinese phones have taken over. Yikes

    Yea, but a few people have been claiming that you can get English on it. Apparently there is unreleased firmware in the wild lol

    Interesting. I'm keen to see if the NFC works where I live, but otherwise I just want those notifications. So that would be cool.
