I think pebble health has lost me. I've always been dubious of things like Google fit, but when pebble introduced the native health app I thought I'd give it a chance.
The sleep tracking is rather odd, starts tracking sleep when I've taken the phone off for half an hour or so to have a bath, despite the fact it's back on my wrist and I'm moving around after.
But it was the step tracking that's done it. Today I was mucking around outside all morning and some of the afternoon, then I ran 4 miles.... Then mucked around a bit more.... It's telling me now at 11.50pm I've taken 3.2 miles worth of steps! This is despite the fact I tracked my run using strava and the bloody watch to display info, as you do...
So sorry pebble health, but you're getting switched off.

Car head unit advice please.
I've just fitted a Pioneer MVH-AV270BT

Double din head unit to my new Transporter. It's working fine, bit I thought I could mirror my phones display, so ( for example) putting the phones sat nav up on the head units display? I've tried plugging in to the USB cable from the head unit but just get USB incompatible ....
Any suggestions?
Nexus 6p, stock.

I'm so impressed with my wife's Miezu note M2 I'm thinking of getting another cheap Chinese phone just for cycling/running, as the Nexus 6p is a bit of a deadweight to carry.
So any suggestions? No bigger than 4.5" ideally and can obviously run apps like strava and pebble time... Working GPS... Other than that it can be rubbish! Less than £100 would be great.
I'm happy to buy direct from China or America...
The note M2...£130 from Expansys, so a safe UK buy. 5.5" screen, 3100mah battery, 13mp camera...
Uses a strange OS that is android 4.4 under, but honestly, you don't notice it, the system is lightweight and intuitive, easy and sensible. I just got rid of a few odd apps and basically installed everything Google I could, including the now launcher and its great, really can't fault it...
I'd say it's the best value phone I've ever bought.
Thanks to Brandon for the suggestion.

Yeah it doesn't seem very accurate on the step counting .... I think I'll stick with PlexFit until they get the bugs worked out. I think this should be gone into public beta first.

New phone for my wife as her old M7 decided to die..
Looked around, asked lots of questions and recently decided to risk getting a Miezu M2 note , spent a tenner more and got it from Expansys (£130) I could of winged it and got it from America for less than £90!!!
It's very good, really can't fault it, crazy good value.. Lots of setting up required so it's more familiar, but nothing to drastic needed.
Very pleased.

+Stuart Mcgregor​ I don't leave the communities but stay as a member and only then use them if need to ask a question. Don't visit them otherwise due to the stupid polls and same shit being posted
