Spotted this the other day...

http://dailymobile.s...iveview-review/

What's the forums thoughts on it? Looks fairly interesting, only £50 so I reckon I'll buy one. I guess it'll live or die on plugins release for it, but I wonder what extra goodness we'll get with rooted handsets

Ive put it in my wish list for christmas, didnt bother dropping hints to the missus I just put a picture in front of her and said "want"

so, is it useable as an everyday watch, ie would you look silly wearing it on your wrist for everyday use? Is it only sportypal pro that works for fitness tracking or are there any other apps working? Whats the battery drain like on your desire whilst its connected, and whats the battery like on the liveview itself?

I have one. Its nice but its not being totally trouble free.

It keeps dropping its connection. It just wont stay connected and updated. On occasion the liveview stops responding to input, or freezes for 20 seconds or so. Sometimes you think its going ok but then it kicks you out of what you were viewing and tries to reconnect, but fails.

Its hard to know whether its the liveview, the liveview app or the Desire that's the problem. Ill try it with my Dell Streak for a day or 2 to see if that's better.

I'm reading some pretty troublesome reports over at a swedish forum about Liveview + Desire.
Seems they don't play nice together at all, unfortunately. Too bad I already ordered one... guess I'll send it right back. It's not lilke I trust SE to fix it any time soon :rolleyes:

More issues. If i try to make the liveview connect to the Desire sometimes its crashes the Desire. It just stops responding for a while, only a battery pull fixes it. Im thinking there is a problem between the Liveview app and the bluetooth on the Desire. Im trying it with my Dell streak today to see if its any better.

It doesnt seem to bother the Desire battery much, but the problems are effecting the Liveview. The battery isnt even lasting one day, its supposed to last 4.

Have any of you tried it with an non-Sense ROM? The stock Desire ROMs have always had dodgy BT issues, and what is being described here happened every time I tried pairing with my car stereo. No problems with Cyanogen though.

Well, its marginally better with the Dell, but only a bit. Is still unstable and loses contact. Its just a bad product that desperately needs a new app and/or firmware.

I was considering one for my Desire, but if its dodgy I think I'll hold off!

Anyone using one with a custom ROM have any more luck??

Same issues here i"m afraid. Music controls don't work at all (apart from volume up/down), keeps dropping connection and sending stuff to the phone crashes it.

Going back I think!

Ah, bollocks! I really wanted this to work, despite just *knowing* SE would screw it up in some way...!
HTC Desire, running a rooted 2.2 Sense ROM. I'd be willing to go to Cyanogen if it'd work though. Music playback control is the killer feature for me and looks lik it doesn't work?

I've got mine coming, and Paul has linked to the SDK, I'll be working on the Music control stuff when it arrives so I wouldn't recommend getting rid just yet...

EPIC fail software for a very interesting piece of software.
