With the caveat that I fully know the firmware and ecosystem is nowhere near mature, after a week using one, I have three minor disappointments:

* Notifications don't work at all, paired with on a
*The music control app doesn't work either
* More importantly for me, the heart rate monitor is unreliable. It goes from zero to more than 200 (!) and any value in between, no matter the level of activity (or lack thereof) I'm doing.

What is Signal and Element doing with all the millions of millions of dollars?
