Any working link to buy another Z8?
They disappeared from Aliexpress.
I'm using again my Z8 because my truesmart's GPS is not working after 45 days using.
I would say excepting battery percentage issue, Z8 works better than original truesmart.

Itīs the same of Z8 except the battery which goes from 500mAh to 600 mAh.
The battery is the weirdest thing of Z8, yesterday my Z8 stopped while biking a tracking of 5 hours and half with 3 calls in the way and as battery percentage is not working correctly you never know when it will switch off.
I hope Z15 is corrected.
Anyway my mind is the coming Samsung's standalone Gear Solo even having Tizen in instead of android:

From ALL the stand-alone watches that are released (to date) none of them will work out of the box as both a stand-alone and as a companion/notifier. All of them either will not work as both of require a lot of hacking.

The Omate clones, now called Z15 has Android but no companion app.

I'm not a developer, else i would go thru all the Omate and clones and variants threads and compile a list of:

1. Things to do to get the watch working
2. The Pro's
3. The Con's (what does not work)

At least then we can make an informed choice between this and the only other choice which is the Gear S.

It would be super if a developer can do this, i'd be willing to help?

Can anyone who owns the z8 confirm that the adidas micoach train & run is working? I am looking for a watch to replace my phone while running (I have a bluetooth 4 heart rate monitor) and this seems like a good solution as long as the micoach app is usable. By usable I mean that I can start the app and I can see my heart rate data from the hrm on the watch while tracking with gps.
Thank you.

You need Android 4.4 or later, not available for Z15 what I see.
