A useful piece of wearable tech. It connects to my smart phone and is very good for recording and analysis my running, swimming and cycling sessions.
It does have a tendency of coming out of its bracket easily and I find myself scrabbling around to find the little black disk on the floor etc (hence 4 stars rather than 5). Apart from that it has a good battery life and I enjoy using it.
It took a while to get this set up as all the online instructions relate to the newer model. I was disappointed that this does not show the time at all - it has no display whatsoever - it only feeds information into my phone. It does not track all movement so if you wear it while shopping and don't wave your arms about it will not register your steps. In fact, it doesn't count steps, only time.
This was good but it wasn't for me I would like a feature on the app where I can just go for a long distance without the speed up slow down stuff I understand it is better for you to train like that but I just like to run at a continuous pace.
I did like on the other hand the person telling you how to improve your running style this helped to be more energy efficient when running.
I did a bit of swimming with it and that was quite good as obviously I was free just to swim how I liked and it was interesting to see how many calories strokes and lengths I did.
If it hadn't of broken within the first week I'm sure this could have been a great piece of kit, feedback on swimming and cycling etc (I don't run, that's for thin fit people). although a bit chunky and not really designed for everyday wear like a fitbit or jawbone (I also have a jawbone for steps etc) it did seem to do what it was designed for well. When cycling the feedback was a bit quiet even with volume on full (no music) Unfortunately after 2 swims and a ride in one week it decided to just give up and wont charge, sync or even bother to turn on, therefore being returned and I will have to look into buying something else
