Amazfit Pace – updated thoughts

I’ve had my Amazfit Pace for around a month now and have decided to update my thoughts on it now. I love the Pace, for the price it suits me just fine. The battery life has settled down to 3 days on average now I’m using the gps and tracking functions a bit more with the gps on and heart rate tracking too.

Once you activate the walking activity widget it tracks you and let’s you know a lot of info like time, steps etc. Once you exit the widget it syncs with your watch (and Strava if you wish) and you can explore the activity on your smartphone like the screenshot above. Pretty clever but pretty standard these days. It does hit the battery life quite hard though – I lose a little over 24 hours from a full charge when I use the activity tracker due to the gps and heart rate monitors. I *may* start turning on airplane mode when I go to bed to see if I can eek out a bit more battery life, but at the moment the 3 full days is pretty good in my book. There have been a few updates to the app and firmware and both seem to be working just fine with me having no major issues. I’ve not really used the music playback functions much as I tend to take my phone with me – but the option is there if I begin running again like I plan to, so I will just take watch with me and no phone…

All in all I’m exceddingly pleased with my Pace. It wears well and doesn’t appear to scratch or mark easily. Battery life is fine at 3 full days with my useage pattern and overall it’s a solid 9 out 10 watch. Only issues I have is it can be a bit slow at times… but nothing that annoys me too much. And seeing as it’s available in a few places for £100 compared to others at double that price I’m pleased…

Sian’s 21st Birthday video

I recently converted my lovely wifey’s video from her 21st Birthday from VHS to a format to distibute and she has kindly let me put it up on Youtube. So here it is in all it’s glory!


Weekend of photos!

Both days at the weekend I was out for photo purposes. Saturday was overcast, grey and freezing so the best pics aren’t that good. It was the final flight of a Meteor NF11 in the UK. It was accompanied by a DH Vampire!

Sunday we went to Bicester Heritage and attended the Sunday Scramble. Loads of beautiful vintage cars…and even a Puma 😉 Gots loads of shots a few are here!

So all in all a great couple of days – but cold!


Arturia Pigments

Quite like this wavetable/morphing synth as a vsti. Will make use of some of the presets for sure! This isn’t a review but I recorded a few of the presets so you can get an idea of what it does. Excuse my live noodling – same famous riffs make an appearance though!


Amazfit Pace FW 2.8.3

Amazfit have a new firmware out for the Pace (English) edition. 2.8.3 has just been released although the notes are still saying 2.8.1

Check for updates using the companion Amazfit app and then update. Was a painless update here for me though it did require an unpairing and pairing again to work…
