Horrible customer service at Fitbit. Beware!!


I purchased the Fitbit Surge from Fitbit the first day it was available. It seemed to be the perfect smart watch for me. It checked all the functionality boxes that I wanted and more plus a great heart rate monitor (HRM) that did not require a chest strap.

I am writing to warn you away from this watch if an accurate HRM is one of your requirements. I used it as recommended by Fitbit.

So I wrote the company from their website requesting an authorization to return the device. (I had it for all of 2 days). We are in to 4 days without a response from the company.

I am going to order the "pure edition" Moto X directly from Motorola on Tuesday. Can anyone confirm that it will work on Verizon? (BTW, this is my second Moto X).

+Greg T. Agreed. if you had told me that the phone that replaced my Droid1 (rooted w/ Cyan) and GNexus (rooted w/ Cyan) was a stock phone? I'd have laughed at you.  but I can suppress the bloatware, and the stock Moto apps add rather than annoy. (give or take Alert, which is a nice idea, but not there yet.)

The ambient sounds affect speech recognition. I have found KitKat speech recognition almost 100% accurate. I am so thrilled with it that I sold my Note II.
 
Anyone else notice since kit kit touchless controls concerning Google speech recognition is not as accurate? That and Google can not be reached are plaguing me in the car trying to send texts.

moto x HELP!  - 
 
Have had my Verizon Moto X since Tuesday. I just love it. I also have a Note II and was planning on switching daily or so -like a pair of shoes. I'm finding that the Note II is gathering dust while I'm enjoying all of the features of the X ...like a kid with a new toy.

I have two questions about the X and hope someone can help me:
-Is it possible to set up speed dial? I know about dialing the name on the keypad.
-I use a headset while listening to music or books. The headset has a volume control and phone answer button but they don't seem to work. Is this a characteristic of the X or do you think a new headset made for the X is required.

Regarding the headset, I'm not sure. My Moto X works with my built-in car Bluetooth fine so it could be your actual headset. Try using a different headset (borrow one from a friend if need be) and see if it works better.

I have had the Samsung II Chromebook from when it first came out. I loved it but it seems to have slowed down over time (or my demands have increased). So after researching what's available in a CB with a faster processor (other than the Pixel), I purchased the Acer C720-3404 11.6-Inch Chromebook (Intel Core i3, 4 GB) Granite Gray at Amazon. It is lightening fast.

The main takeaway is if you are looking for a really fast CB for under $400, this is the baby for you

I have had the Samsung 2 since it came out. I now want to get the fastest Chromebook available (other than the Pixel). Does anyone know what is available or coming soon that has the fastest processor??

A few years ago, I was able to use Google Wallet on my Verizon GNex until V shut it down. I loved the convenience of paying with my phone. Last week, I learned that it was unlikely that my Note II would be getting KitKat so I decided that it was time to get a second phone. Verizon's Moto X had already been upgraded; so I placed my order late Friday and early Tuesday, FedEx delivered my custom Moto X. Cool. By Tuesday afternoon, I paid for- my organic goodies at Whole Foods, my gas at Circle K and a toothbrush at CVS with Google Wallet on Moto X. 

Paying with our easily accessible phones and having receipts all in one place should be compelling to the user; from the standpoint of the stores, the transaction happens faster and folks operating the cash registers tell me that they prefer it. 

Thanks Google for bringing back Wallet.

We read the review in the Phoenix Magazine and knew that we had give Ingo's a try. That was about 4 weeks ago. We have returned at least a dozen times to taste new items and reorder our favorites. Instead of going through each item on the menu, suffice to say that everything is tasty and satisfying. What is most amazing in this rather small place is how they consistently maintain their high quality; I have never seen that in any other restaurant and we eat out most of our meals. This is a friendly and comfortable place. Give it a try.
