Don't really see the difference between this and the previous model. But I am always motivated to walk when I wear the band. There is also a sleep feature showing how deep or shallow a night's sleep is.
Easy to wear, but I did have problems getting it set up to talk to my mobile - as the instructions were not at all clear. But the helpline was good, and helped, and it is easy to use. Battery life is very good. I've only charged it once in a month.
