The band is like many fitness bands, but smaller and more comfortable than others with similar capability. The screen uses a different technology than most and has a sort of ghostly (some might say fuzzy) glow--white images/characters on dark background. It's fairly easy to read indoors, though the font makes some characters hard to discern; for instance, "Kumon" is indistinguishable from "Human". Where it really breaks down is outdoors in sunlight, where in order to read it at all I have to cast a shadow over it and squint. When you get a text or notification, you need to scroll all the way to the end to dismiss it. Paired with my iPhone, the Band reports all events in all my calendars, even calendars I've hidden in the iPhone's calendar app, which means I have to dismiss items like Facebook birthdays that I really don't want a notification for.
That sounds mostly negative, but the fact is the Band performs its main purpose--tracking steps and workouts--quite well, and it's a convenient time source (though you have to press a button to see the current time). It tracks a variety of workout types and sleep, and reports heart rate when asked. As with other bands, the heart rate monitor is useless when you are actively doing a workout, which is why the HealthBox includes a "real" around-the-chest HRM (see below). I've found myself actually tracking my sleep with it, and watching my resting heart rate improve over time.
The band charges very quickly and the battery typically lasts at least a couple of days. This does bring up another negative, though: The charging cord is short and stiff, and the connection to the band is very easy to, well, disconnect. A weak magnet is the only thing that holds the tiny pins in contact, and the weight of the band is too much for the magnet, so it has to be supported just right to stay connected. I typically charge in my car during my commute, which is usually enough to keep it fully charged.
The "Heart Rate" is a typical around-the-chest HRM. To track heart rate during workouts, it must be paired with the Band, and a workout must be active. You can also connect directly to a phone and the Record app, but it will only show instantaneous heart rate and will not record workout data in that state. Plus if you do that, you may find that the HR won't connect to the band next time you start a workout and you'll have to fiddle with Bluetooth a bit to get the HR to disconnect from the phone so it can connect to the Band. When you start a workout with the HR monitoring you, a small blue light will shine on the Band showing that it's connected. The light changes as you progress through heart rate percentage bands, which is pretty useful. You can also check the exact number in the display. Generally, the HR does what it is supposed to and is a superior solution for tracking heart rate during workouts.
The UA Scale is very sleek looking and has user recognition features (I think it just uses closest weight). It also does body fat %. Compared to another scale that I've confirmed is accurate at the gym and doctor's office, the UA scale reports weight that is 0.8-1.6 pounds higher. I don't mind it being a little higher, but the variability is a bit annoying. I typically weigh myself 2-3 times in the morning until I get a low weight, which is almost always 0.8 lbs high. The body fat % is about as consistent as any other I've tried, including the Omron. It reports about 1.5% higher body fat for me than the full-body machine at the doc's, but that's understandable as I carry most of my fat in my lower trunk (so UA "sees" it) and there's no upper body mechanism like there is on the big professional machines.
One of the great things about the scale is that it is on WiFi and sends my weight and BF directly to the Record app on my phone.
UA has invested heavily in apps, and Record is the main app for HealthBox syncing. The band and scale both report to it (one via BT, the other via WiFi), which makes tracking workouts, weight, and sleep very easy. The app looks really nice and performs basic functions well. It's clear that it needs some work though. It currently only shows the latest workout, which means if I run to the gym, do a gym workout, and run home, I can only see the run home's HR profile and other details.
Calorie intake tracking is via MyFitnessPal (which UA recently bought). MFP itself works very well and easily for tracking foods, though I wish it had better support for actual calories burned (it does give you credit for workout calories, but not for non-workout step calories).
UA also now owns the MapMy* series of apps, and MapMyRun, in particular is useful and in fact solves the "seeing older workouts" problem since it is well integrated and does show details from previous workouts (even "gym" workouts).
My biggest complaint, really, is that the suite of apps and wearables seem to have been patched together and have not yet been fully integrated. UA also has "Record equipped" Gemini running shoes that measure and report workouts to the suite, but there is not a way yet (that I've discovered) to record a running workout with heart rate using the shoes and HealthBox HR, even if you are also wearing the band. My experiments have always resulted in double steps during the workout or worse, double workouts (because the shoes and band report workouts separately and Record doesn't realize they happened at the same time).
Healthbox is not a bad 1.0, but it feels a bit more like a 0.9. Most or all of the issues I've reported above are known to UA and they have planned a major update to Record for June (per UA's support) that will address at least some of them. In the meantime, I'm glad I got the UA Healthbox and don't know any suite of wearables that is better, but it has a ways to go to reach its full potential.
All of the products synced easlily with the apps and they were up and running in less than 10 minutes. You will probably add another 30 minutes if you are starting from scratch and have to download and configure your info in the apps. Once that's done everything is seemless. You step on the scale and within a few seconds it is synced with the apps. You do your workout and it is synced immediately. I have found no glitches so far.
Heart Rate Chest Strap: Fits comfortably without pinching and doesn't fall even when doing a lot of jumping. It reads consistently with no dropouts and updates quickly. You can monitor your heart rate in the apps or on an Apple Watch (I don't know about other watches) while working out. The Record APP will also call out your calories burned as well as current heart rate and zone at an interval you specify (I do every 2 minutes but it is very customizable to your needs), I love this feature. The batteries are also DIY replaceable which is a great feature.
Scale: Looks good. Sleek and contemporary. I compared it to my Fitbit Aria scale and it came up with the same reading for weight but was off by 1% on body fat. Don't know which one is more accurate but still pretty close. The UA scale was higher on body fat which is fine as it will give me more motivation.
Wrist Band: Here is the only let down. The band fits nicely and has a good clasp. Stays on through the hardest workout with being uncomfortable. The down side is the display is somewhat blurry. I don't personally use it for the heart rate as I use the Apple Watch or the phone to do that but if you are planning to use the wrist band it might be hard to see. Footnote would be I'm 48 years old and my vision isn't great up close but even with contacts in it is hard to read for me. Might not be a problem for someone with better vision and it doesn't affect me at all as I don't use the display at all. You can start a workout from the band if you so choose. It will also display your steps and the time. It syncs with your phone and will let you know if you have a text (I don't use this feature so I have no info on it).
Overall I would highly recommend this system as it makes it easy to keep track of everything in one place.
