Itâs slow. Very slow. Iâll have to move my wrist 3-4 times to get it to wake up. Touching the watch to access something Iâll have touch, wait a few seconds, then itâll respond. Queue this every time you watch to access something. Makes it tough to do anything.
Iâve had it almost a week. Itâs already become completely unresponsive once. You could still lift your arm to view watch but thatâs all it would do. No amount of tapping or button pushing would do anything. I had to wait until the battery died to get it to turn off. Once charged it worked fine.
The NFC doesnât work. At all. Iâve tried few times and 9-10 different stores. Itâs never once worked. Disappointing because thatâs why I bought it.
Overall not really worth the cost since it either doesnât work or has a lot of issues. I like diesel but Iâd pass on this watch if I could.

-I wish I had believed the other reviews about the battery life. I set it up, put a few apps on it, and charged it. Fully charged it. I put it on the next morning, wore it for about 2 hours and the battery was already down to 78%. I did not constantly use it (though for the price, I should be able to without losing too much battery charge). I am not unfamiliar with how smart watches work. I have an Apple Watch and have had various Fitbits. The Apple Watch has to be charged daily (which I knew when I bought it) and it lasts all day. Based on the initial loss of battery life with this Diesel watch, I would estimate barely 8 hours of use per charge. I certainly have a longer than 8 hour day – more like 16 hours in an average day of mine. This Diesel would have to be charged at least twice daily if I wanted a full day’s use out of it. That is not practical or helpful as a smart watch.
-Also, to note, it is bigger and heavier than I expected, though it would not have bothered me if the watch’s battery life lasted longer.
-Another note for people with larger wrists, it does not come with extra links to expand it, so you need to call customer service to get the links – which I did, before I knew the battery life was going to be horrible. Now I am out the shipping cost of the links and I will have no use for them.

Compared to the Apple Watch series 1, the battery life is slightly less however. I could get a day and a half out of the Apple Watch when it was new. The Diesel On Full Guard 2.5 its much more fun to use though. It is more customizable, has better watch faces, looks better, and the two buttons above and below the dial can be used as shortcuts for whatever apps you want. The performance is probably only slightly better than the Apple Watch series 1 which is odd since series 1 technology is a few years old now. Either way, I’m extremely satisfied so far.
