Thanks everybody for this thread.
I was wondering why the Bangle 2 display looked funky, with less vivid colors than the original Bangle.
Somehow I missed the fact that the always-on Bangle 2 display has just 3 bit color versus 16 bit.
Hmm - Now I also see Bangle 2 is 176x176 vs. 240x240 on the original Bangle.
Anyhow - I've been totally blown away with how good the battery life is. No doubt the 3-bit display and lower resolution helps battery life quite a bit.
Sitting idle for about a week, my Bangle 2 has lost maybe 30% of charge - if that.
Well worth the trade-off on the display...
