IMO the notifications are mostly useless. Anything more than a short text message and I find myself not even bothering to read stuff from the tiny screen.
Thanks. I think the x40 vibrate feature could be a bit more useful. At least to alert me to check my phone if the message is important.

Nice! Didn't think it'd be available already. Have you used the S20 before this?

I have a sleeping disorder (nightmares of that days round) so I can monitor my game and my lack of sleep.
looks like it has lots of features.

Yesterday I measured my heart rate at a local CVS store and compared the numbers on X40. It's spot on. Very accurate. However unlike Vivoactive and HR, the activities you can track on this unit are limited. You can track golf, run, walk, bike, cardio, and sleep. It also alert you for any notifications that appears on your phone such as calls, missed calls, messages, emails, and other social messenger activities. You can also control music (stop/play/forward/backward). No third party software integration. You can also scroll to other screen while playing golf. With some of the other units like Vivoactive, they lock you into the yardage screen so even if you want to quickly view time or messages, you had to get out of golf activities. Not so with Approach X40. You can scroll to any other screen without affecting the golf game. i found this to be a big plus.
If you don't use gps, I can see the unit can last about a week without charging, longer if no heart rate sensor is activated. The screen is simple B&W and is more readable than Vivoactive HR although I think both units are using the same screen technology. Very bright in day lights and plenty ledgeable at night. You can configure it to turn the backlight on automatically when you turn to view the screen similar to the function offered by Microsoft Band 2.
So there you have it, all in all, very nice unit and my favorite wearable so far.
