4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool device.., October 27, 2013
This review is from: Basis Health Tracker for Fitness, Sleep & Stress - Black (Discontinued By Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I've only had my basis for a little over 2 weeks and so far it's been motivating. It keeps me moving throughout the day and even more so I can earn more points to make room for more habits. I've always wanted something to track my heart rate during my workout and this one is pretty accurate. The first time I put it on my HR was reading 30bpm. I thought for sure it couldn't be accurate since that was a very low reading and for a second I thought it was crap until I counted my HR by palpation and compared it to my pulse oximeter. I found that it was indeed accurate and correlated with my FDA approved (for medical use) pulse oximeter.

The steps are also accurate since you can see it count every step and stop when you stop. I also wear my nike fuelband and when comparing the two it seems the basis is more accurate when counting steps.

It says you can wear it in the shower, which is a cool, but I have yet to try it.

Overall I'm happy with it. The only reason I am giving it a 4 star is because the band (I have the "electric spring" design) stains real easily and you can't clean it, in fact it has already started cracking and I haven't had it for very long. It's kind of a bummer since I really like the design. It's a good thing it comes with a black one, but it's kinda boring. 😕 The iPhone app is also very limited. It's kind of a pain to have to log on to the computer every time you want to change/access your habits. Hopefully they update the app soon.
