Because Fitbit does not support Apple Health Kit, I abandoned their products.
I tried a Misfit Flash and a Jawbone Move UP. Both are good trackers, but I prefer my new iHealth Wave.
The Wave is waterproof, but the Move is not. The wave has a inactive alert and an alarm to wake you up. The Move and Flash do not.
For walking I get about 6 days of battery life.
Communicates well to my phone. I think i recieved a poorly functioning return.
I am going to return for a replacement and see if i get a new tracker this time
As a step counter: overall, I think it's okay. Sometimes, it did not count steps at all. But there's no such thing as a 100% accurate step counter, so I don't know that it actually affects your overall step count by a significant amount. I did try putting it in my pocket on walks with a stroller, as it does not count steps if your arm is stationary. It didn't count steps at all. It does come with a belt clip that I did not try (I forgot to bring it with me), so maybe that would work better.
As a sleep tracker: I really liked it. It seems to accurately determine when you fall asleep and when you wake up. I wonder though how accurate your awake vs. deep vs. light pattern is. For example, this morning I took it off and placed it on the dresser at 5am and continued to sleep until 8am and it managed to still track periods of light vs. deep sleep during that three hour period, even though it was completely stationary on a surface during that time.
As an alarm: by FAR my favorite feature of the watch, and honestly what made me take so long to return it. You can set three separate alarms, and can specify them for certain days of the week. The vibration was strong enough to wake me every single time without error. Waking to a silent alarm was better than I could have imagined. I don't know that I can go back to audible alarms now! Super reliable, loved it. It also has a sedentary alarm to remind you to move. You can choose how long you want it to wait to alert you.
As a swim tracker: this is the sole reason I bought the watch. It claims to track swim strokes, laps, type of stroke, and duration of swim. Unfortunately, the watch failed me on every single one of these. I contacted customer support who initially tried to tell me there was a problem with my stroke, which I disagree with but who knows - maybe my high school swim coach allowed me to swim competitively for 4 years without a proper stroke. They then told me how to reset the watch (which is not in the instructions and is not obvious). After resetting, the swim function was still wildly inaccurate. While swimming in open water continuously, it somehow managed to track laps. While swimming laps, it inaccurately measured the laps. Swimming for 40 minutes led to only 28 minutes of tracked swimming - which I don't understand because the swim mode started after the first half lap and stayed active until 5-10 minutes after getting out of the pool. It also never got the stroke type correct. I could swim all frontcrawl, and it reads half breast stroke and half backstroke.
Display: When I initially started using the watch, it was difficult to get the display to work consistently. Changing display seems to work with the flip of a wrist but also by touch. This was very spotty at first, but after resetting the watch it almost became too sensitive. The watch would turn on with almost no motion or touch. This led to the battery life drastically shrinking. On the plus side, the display looks really sensitive to scratches but I assure you it is not! Completely scratch free! It is difficult to see in natural light, but not impossible.
Battery Life: I never got this watch to last more than 4 days. With little use, and a faulty display, it would last about 4. Once the display became super sensitive, it would only last 2.
Bands: The bands seems to wear out quickly. Initially, they were super solid and held together just fine. But by the end of the month, the band I used (blue) started to discolor and unsnap randomly. It also started to tear a little where the actual sensor snaps into the band. It did not seem to cause any issue - the sensor was still secure, but with repeated use this could be a problem. Could have just been a defect in that band, but I did not get the chance to use the other bands for longer than a few days as I ran out of time before I needed to return it.
Overall, it has promise, but does not quite live up to it yet. There is almost no instruction in the booklet and the customer service department wanted to place the blame with me before even trying to reset the watch. On the app, there is a "help" section, but it does not offer any help for this type of watch, only older models. So you are on your own if you want to figure this one out!
