Product Description

Product Description

Between work and family, it's hard to fit exercise into a busy schedule. Striiv is the first Smart Pedometer that motivates you to walk more throughout your busiest days--making it easy to be more active, lose weight, and step into a healthier lifestyle. Striiv goes beyond numbers and charts. Its color touch screen with built-in Apps lets you compete with friends and family, hit personalised goals, do walkathons for good causes, or play games powered by walking. It provides instant feedback throughout your day (without needing to sync to a computer). You can also view your stats, goals, and donations at www.striiv.com, and let your friends cheer you on over Facebook and Twitter.
Why Striiv?

Go Beyond Tracking: Get Motivated

Other devices just track what you do. Striiv is smarter--it figures out what gets you moving. What would get you to take the stairs instead of the elevator: a higher number on a graph or a donation of clean water for a child in need? That's the difference between Striiv and tracking devices. Striiv lets you compete with friends, hit personalised goals, do walkathons (at no cost to you), and play games powered by walking. Walking becomes so much fun that Striiv will be your first healthy addiction.

Real Results - Lose Weight & Be Healthier

Over 96% of Striiv users tell us they are more active, 70% have seen their health improve, and 60% have lost an average of 13lbs.* Here's an eye-opening fact: Walking 30 minutes throughout your day will change your life. Doctors universally recommend walking to lose weight, fight diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. On average, Striiv users walk an astonishing 90 minutes throughout the day (three times the recommendation). Taking stairs, walking to lunch, or playing with their kids at the park--it all adds up.

Color Touch Screen Gives Instant Feedback

Striiv's high-resolution color touch screen is at your fingertips all day, providing instant feedback and encouragement. No need to be tethered to a computer to track progress, so you get the motivation you need when you're actually up and moving. Think of the first time you checked email or played games on your smartphone--using your phone was suddenly a whole new experience. Striiv's Smart Pedometer offers the same improvement. Striiv gives you more than just numbers--it makes exercise fun and meaningful.

Striiv’s Secret: Motivation

We believe people are motivated by their passions, and not just by stats or self-discipline. Whether it's the walkathon, personalised challenges, social competitions, or our games, you'll be walking and taking the stairs a lot more because it's fun and meaningful.

A Walkathon in Your Pocket

Helping others provides powerful motivation. At no cost to you, Striiv and corporate partners donate on your behalf as you walk. Just walk, earn, and plug into your computer to donate. It's that simple. You have the choice of three charities--donating water to families in South America, polio vaccines, and saving the rainforest. The more you walk, the more sponsors give.

Personalised Goals

Have a staircase at home? Enjoy walking to lunch? Striiv learns your routine and then recommends custom challenges designed to get you fit. You can even compete with friends and compare against their achievements.

Games Powered by Activity

The concept is simple--make addictively fun games powered by walking and you will get fit. Whether it's building a magical island, or racing "Waddles the penguin" up the Statue of Liberty, our games will get you hooked on being active. Don't be surprised if you find yourself walking up and down your stairs at 3 a.m.

Play with Friends and Family Wirelessly

Striiv just got social. Every Striiv has a built-in wireless radio that enables you to compete with the people around you: race across the Golden Gate Bridge to see who washes the dishes or climb the Statue of Liberty wagering 1,000 Striiv points. Then, share (or brag about) your victories on Facebook and Twitter.

Tracking and Charts

Striiv tracks your steps, stairs, calories, and minutes of activity. All these stats are displayed on Striiv's large color touch screen. In addition, see charts right on your device--no computer needed. You can also go online for additional insights.

Accurate & Upgradable

High Accuracy

In addition to the 3-D motion sensor and high precision altimeter, Striiv's dual-core CPU & DSP add an additional layer of accuracy. Other trackers report up to thousands of "fake steps" from car vibrations or random movements each day, but Striiv's proprietary TruMotion(TM) technology detects and filters them out to provide the best accuracy in the toughest real world conditions.

Easily Upgradable: Always Getting Better

Periodically connect Striiv to your computer and you'll get fresh Apps, content, and motivation. For example, in the last update, customers received new personalized challenges (Striiv now learns your behavior), a new island in the Myland game, and even more accurate firmware to count steps. As a company, we're eager to hear your feedback and we'll keep improving your Striiv over time.

*Results are from a survey study conducted by Striiv in April 2012.

    I wanted to like the Striiv, I really did. I did not let the lack of power adapter and screen protector (when compared to the same product in America) bother me. Instead, I hoped the Striiv would be a fun way to encourage a bit more activity whilst providing reasonably accurate calorie and step statistics.

    Unfortunately, from the first day of use, it was clear that the calorie burned count was terribly inaccurate. I was getting between 800 to 1000 calories for every 10,000 steps. The correct figure should be around 450. I even tried re-calibrating my stride length and checked to make sure the weight I had entered in was correct. I then contacted Striiv customer service who took 3 weeks to reply and then told me that I should update the firmware on my Striiv Play. Uhh hello, I have a Striiv Smart!
    Customer service replied again and said "Oh, sorry. Yeah there's nothing we can do about the inaccurate calorie count. You should just halve it". Right, so all that technology and they can't get the calorie count right nor upgrade the firmware.

    When I finally got to using the "fun" part of the Striiv, I found the games pretty random and goal-less, and the touch screen's lack of response was very apparent as I tried to interact with objects in the game.

    Nevertheless, the one redeeming feature of the Striiv is that it encourages activity through the random challenges that pop up whenever you view the display, e.g. challenging you to an extra 1000 steps in the next half hour or to climb a set number of steps in a 10 minute window. Oh, and it tracks steps fairly accurately but to be honest, that's minimum requirement for a pedometer!

    Had the calorie count been remotely accurate, I would have overlooked the minor flaws and kept the device.

    By Seren Ade HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    I received this free through the Amazon Vine programme and, after just over a month of using it, am still in two minds about the product.

    In terms of the RRP, this is the most expensive pedometer I've ever owned and, to be fair, it does a lot more than my old Omron Walking Style. However, it's quite bulky and I'm not entirely convinced about the value of many of the extras.

    The Striiv is easy to set up and use. It comes with a belt clip, keyring adapter, and USB cable. There's no mains adapter supplied but this runs on a basic micro USB plug, so if you prefer to use the mains charging route rather than USB, then a USB to mains plug (including many a phone charger) can step in here. It is possible to use this without synching to a computer and sharing your life history with the manufacturer, however you miss out on having them make charitable donations on your behalf by doing so.

    Size-wise the Striiv is quite large - roughly twice the size of a 6th generation iPod nano - but seems to be pretty accurate when counting steps. There's plenty of information, too: how many calories you've burned off, how many steps you've walked (plus the equivalent in miles), the equivalent in stair steps (not so helpful/accurate, since the device doesn't seem able to differentiate actual stair climbing from regular walking!), plus how many minutes of activity you've engaged in. The device also stores long-term data, and uses this to provide average and personal best records.

    Unlike any previous pedometer I've owned, the Striiv divides the day up into a series of smaller goals and challenges.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Apps on pedometers!!?? 10 Jan 2013
    By Chris Morse VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    It's all about Apps!
    I got this for my wife, a qualified exercise instructor, so she has written about it. All i will say is that if you have ever owned an iPod, the packaging and presentation of this pedometer is identical. It also feels like a quality product rather than mutton dressed as lamb. It has lots of apps on it that look like old nintendo games or graphs showing everest and marathons to give you goals. I connected it to the PC for my wife and it synced to the website. There is no desktop sync, it's all on-line. It seems that if you do not sync daily you lose the info for the days you missed, someone may have to corroborate that.
    Here is what my wife said:

    Very handy!
    The striiv pedometer neatly attatches to your belt, or alternately can be attatched to the keychain provided, and put on a belt loop or bag.
    This neat little gadget will calculate steps taken,eqv.stairs, milage, time of day and calories.
    There are many little icons to play with, including challenges, games, walking challenges and games to increase steps taken, races, all encouraging you to make extra efforts in walking further each day.
    You need to download your information onto the computer daily, where, once set up, you can easily download all your efforts on the striiv page. This will calculate how far you would have walked up Mount Everest, how far you have achieved if you were doing a marathon, and your personal bests.
    What seems amazing, is that Striiv say that they donate water and medical needs to other countries, depending on how many steps you have taken, at no expense from yourself, you just have to keep walking, download your information, and they sort out the rest! Seems too good to be true, check out their website to confirm.
