It helps you incorporate small changes in your daily routine that have a powerful impact on your health. Armed with these healthy habits, you’ll easily get to the next level with your fitness, sleep, and stress goals. Find the Superhuman in you, with Basis.

Customer Reviews

Very uncomfortable to wear (band/thickness of watch).
Roelof Zeijpveld
Given that it has zero, yes, zero functionality without the support of the Basis servers, you should really think long and hard before you spend money on this product.
J. Tant
I have correlated the heart rate/steps and sleep monitoring with other means and it is very accurate.

Recently got rid of a fitbit force because of the "rash" and went with this instead. Had this for about a week and definitely like it better then the fitbit.

-looks good and is very comfortable. May be too large for many women however.
-the habits with daily/weekly goals and earning points to unlock more habits is definitely more motivational than the fitbit goals/software
-sleep tracking is the best I've seen. Shows details about sleep quality and type. Automatically senses when you are asleep and awake. No buttons to push
-watch feature is always on. You don't have to push a button every time you want to see the time
-website shows a lot of useful ways to view your data
-very accurate. Seems like more accurate then the force was for counting steps
-able to tell if I'm simply taking steps, waking at an intensity to qualify for cardiovascular activity, running, or biking (real biking only-cant sense stationary biking) automatically. It then automatically records my activities that were greater than 10 minutes for record keeping as well as providing detailed data for review
-hr monitor is very accurate compared to manual pulse taking and with a pulse oximeter.

-hr monitor looses the ability to pick up hr with vigorous activity. The same thing happens with a pulse oximeter (uses similar optical technology). If you are moving to much it can't consistently get the heart rate. It will pick up various points during your exercise which you can view on the website later. If you want continuous feedback on hr during exercise you will need to wear a chest strap type monitor. In general with non vigorous activity it does well but does loose contact occasional with other arm movements and walking as well.

Thank you for your review of the Basis Carbon Steel Edition. We're glad you are enjoying it!

We are glad that you are finding our Healthy Habits system motivating - it's designed to help people set small goals that add up to big improvements in their health. This is an aspect of our system that we are very proud of because it delivers on our mission of keeping people engaged in their health.

Your feedback about our HR tracking is appreciated and we have passed your suggestion about distance traveled along to our product team. We are planning to make our data available to sync with other applications sometime this year, but haven't published a specific timeline for this.

Glad you like your Basis band over your most recent tracker. We always appreciate your feedback!

The Basis is watching you :)

Basis is not perfect and it doesn't monitor 'everything, everywhere' - won't be swimming with it - but it's good enough and comfortable enough for me to actually keep it on my wrist and it's likely to stay this way until something 'better' comes about.


Let me begin with what I dislike about the Basis, just to get it out of the way, then I am going to describe my experience of wearing it for the past two weeks, very much 24 by 7. So, here it is what I don't like about the Basis:

- Has to be charged every 3-4 days and you MUST use the very proprietary Basis charger. I understand why the charger must be proprietary: can't have it both waterproof and still have a standard USB port but I'd be so much happier if I could get away with once per week charging sessions.
- There is no quick way to speak to a support person. You will have to email them and they will respond as soon as they can. In my case (see below), they got back to me in about 12-16 hours but they warn you that they can't guarantee a 'same day' or even 'next day' response.
- Doesn't automatically sync with all Android devices. They do have a list of supported models and I'm not going to do the Android-sync anyway (will explain below) but anyone with a smart phone, you should know that Android auto-sync may or may not work for you.


Almost everything else about the Basis, I like, very much.

I had big expectations for the new Basis tracker. The B1, the previous model, was very good in some aspects, seriously lacking in others. The hope that the Carbon Steel (aka 2014 or B2) would address those flaws and be the gold standard of trackers is, sadly, an unfulfilled one. A much better band than the B1, but that - and the better looks of the carbon steel bezel - are about it. Better paint job and a deluxe Italian leather steering wheel cover - same car.

I have been sort of at the forefront of tracker development for the past year or so, being one of the first to acquire the Fitbit Flex (at CES 2013), and have the highest-rated review for the Flex: Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband, Black. I very much like the way Basis is developing their tracker watches. Far superior to the bands from Fitbit, Jawbone, Nike, et al. Their focus on total integration (watch, pedometer/accelerometer, heart-rate monitor, calorie-burn count, etc.) is what sets them apart from their competitors.

But here's the "however": However, the Carbon Steel is simply not a success in that integration of sensors and data generation, for reasons set forth below. My bottom line advice is to wait for the next iteration of the Basis, or a more successful try from one of their competitors. If you can live with the flaws and shortcomings I point out and $200 is nothing to you, it's certainly not a terrible product and may be worth a try. Personally, I would wait. The technology is evolving quickly in this area.

Thanks for your detailed review, we've gotten a lot of great feedback from tracker enthusiasts like you. We're glad that you like the way we're developing our product and appreciate that you consider us superior to Fitbit, Jawbone and Nike.

Integrating distance traveled and a chest strap accessory are great feature suggestions. We're always looking for ways to improve our feature set and we've passed along your suggestions to our product team.

Regarding our Advanced Sleep Analysis feature, while other sleep trackers might be solely motion based, Basis integrates other data captured from our sensors including heart rate data to provide a more detailed profile of the wearer's sleep, including REM Sleep, Deep Sleep, Light Sleep, Toss & Turn, Interruptions and Duration (these are detected automatically without the need to push a button). We've partnered with leading research institutions: UCSF, San Francisco VA Medical Center and NCIRE to develop our algorithms and we will continue to refine those algorithms to ensure our users are getting the most accurate picture of their sleep.

While other devices might provide users with distance and heart rate tracking during exercise, we focus on data concerning other aspects of your health such as automatic sleep and activity tracking, and our Healthy Habits system was developed to encourage users to continually make small changes that improve their health over time.

As a minor point of clarification, there is no "B2" model. The 2014 Carbon Steel Edition is the culmination of incremental improvements made to the B1 band to improve the look, feel and fit.

Basis is always evolving and striving to provide our users with the most advanced health tracker. Thanks for your feedback - it's an invaluable part of our development.
