*****UPDATE MARCH 30/14******
update is at the bottom, has to do with Advanced Sleep Analysis

I love this watch aka band, i was procrastinating and wanted to buy something, i went deep into this watch very deep. Looking at what was available on the market i found quickly that, One: a lot of bands are lifestyle bands, not for the people that what more (aka athletes), and Two: they didn't have the sensors i wanted. With that said there are a lot of bands that are very good, Jawbone and Fitbit offer great bands, Nike + band to me is kinda gimmicky, it works and does what its supposed to, its not a placebo watch, i just don't like that it doesn't give you basic metrics, like they got their nike fuel but i can't compare that with real world metrics. Sucks even more considering they are a sports company and a lot of the athletes need something more than nike fuel.

So to get to the band, i got it for about $150 with shipping (i got it used on ebay, just incase you're wondering). I didn't wanna spend $200 on it honestly.

Aesthetics (8/10): The watch is designed nicely, but it doesn't really look say "cool". i do love the modular design of the wristband, i haven't had it break apart tho like others have. But you do wanna take it apart and clean it once in a while. I don't mind the way it looks, to me its kinda of a businessy look and i can dig that.

Hardware (9/10): It has an array of sensors, but one of my biggest complaints is that the HR monitor isn't accurate when working out, which was why i kinda got the thing. Other than that its built like an apple product, everything is nicely crafted, but like an apple product the fragile part is the screen.

It has been a year, the B1 is off the market so why even bother with an update? Mostly because of what this experience says about the manufacturer. The often promised updates to the software never happened. The B1 still does not sync with iOS in the background, still does not integrate with other health apps, HRM is still totally inaccurate, the sleep tracking never got improved, the step counter did not ever get fixed. When Intel acquired Basis in March it immediately began to run away from the customers rather than stand behind them. The hardware itself is falling apart. The band is cracked at the clasp and keeps detaching (thanks to the cheap plastic design). Apparently this $200+ watch was never meant to last a year and was never intended to get any meaningful updates. I would never purchase another wearable from Intel. No way to treat the many people who plunked down all that money for "the world's most advanced tracking device" just 12 months ago. Live and learn I suppose, but I certainly won't be foolish enough to buy another Intel/Basis tracker!

I have dropped this to three stars. We have found that it is totally worthless when hiking (as an example, it recorded 5,000 steps on an 8 mile hike with 1,500 feet of elevation gain when the Fitbit recorded 32,000 on the same trip). It seems to be incapable of accurately measuring when using hiking poles. Also, the heart monitor - as noted elsewhere - just does not read out reliably or accurately when doing any kind of exercise. Finally the soft plastic face is very prone to scratching. All-in-all we will be looking for an alternative.


We bought the Basis B1 and the Fitbit Force (hereafter FBF), the two leading contenders based on various reviews.

January 7, 2014

Thanks for your review. We wanted to give you some additional info and updates. We do have auto-sync with Android but unfortunately don't do the same with iPhones given the configuration of iOS. Hopefully, it is something we can resolve for the future. The slow sync times you experienced were probably due to some server issues we were having during the holidays due to high volume. That issue is now resolved. Here is a post on the subject if you are interested: Regarding integration with other apps, this is something will be offering later this year so please stay tuned. Regarding the battery, charging for 10-15 minutes per day should keep it topped up - otherwise it takes 1hr to charge a depleted battery to 90% or 3hrs to charge a depleted battery to 100%. (Some customers find it convenient to use the charger while the device is on-wrist, for instance, while working on the computer.) Lastly, we are launching Advanced Sleep Analysis along with version 2.0 of our web and mobile apps later this month - with this update Basis will automatically capture REM Sleep, Deep Sleep, Light Sleep, Toss-and-Turn, Interruptions and Duration.

I have had my watch for just over a week now, and while it is undeniably cool in some ways, it remains frustrating in others. It seems well built and measures heart rate and steps well enough for me. I had some trouble getting it to sync to my computer or android phone for a few days, but a hard reset seemed to fix that. I had to remember that it's just like a computer in that sense. I have been getting about three days out of the battery.

The website and android interaction are cool when they work. The idea of habits (like achievements in games) is a great one, and its part of what motivated me to get the watch. I think if everything worked smoothly like it's supposed to I would be completely happy. Unfortunately, that's not the case. For every time the website has worked, it has also re-directed me to page where an unhappy little robot tells me that the link is broken. This makes no sense to me. It's really frustrating to want to look at your data and then spend 15 minutes hitting refresh until it works.

I love that it tracks my sleep patterns fairly accurately and so far has motivated me to behave a little better that way. I hate that it's supposed to recognize cycling, but so far after two workouts that seems to have been a bust. Tech support also seems to be lacking a bit. I realize they must be selling a ton of these during the holidays, but I wish there was more documentation on what to do if you're having a problem. Before Basis finally got back to me about my syncing issue I had basically figured out the hard reset by myself. I have contacted them about the fact that it doesn't seem to be recognizing the cycling, but no response yet.

In theory this thing is a five out of five. At the moment, in practice, I'm being generous with a 3. If Basis can make it's website more consistent, fix my cycling issue and improve it's mobile apps a bit it should be well worth it's price. If they do, I'll come back and update this.
