I lost yet another activity/fitness/sleep tracker, and I haven't found another one to love :(
tl;dr: Won't someone PLEASE make an Android Wear watch with a plethora of sensors, great exercise and sleep tracking, and integration w/ Google Fit & Apple Health?! I'd seriously pay $300+ for that.
- My Withings Pulse ran away at the gym and hasn't come back.
- My Resmed S+ sleep tracker now refuses to pair with my phone.
(admittedly, I do still have my Withings scale, so I guess I'm not totally 'alone' re trackers)Understandably, I've been looking for another tracker to buy.Fitbit?
They refuse to integrate with Google Fit and charge $50/yr for you to download your own data. Bummer :\ And apparently their devices offer only mediocre sleep tracking.Withings?
Not great with sleep tracking (doesn't measure REM, and my sleep tracking experience w/ my Pulse was overall lackluster at best). Nice Android app, though, and integration w/ Google Fit :).Jawbone?
Tried the UP3, was really bummed with it. Among other things, it kept switching to sleep mode while I was typing away on my computer in the afternoon!Basis?
They do offer data export (yay!) and lots of great sensors, but their watch lacks even a basic wakeup alarm :( (though apparently they're working on it). And at least last time I checked, they weren't doing any better than the other companies at making useful, actionable sense of health data: http://www.adamlasnik.net/post/fitness-wearables-advice/
Still, the new'ish Basis Peak seems closest to what I'd like -- apparently good heart rate monitoring, strong sleep tracking, data export, compatibility w/ Google Fit, etc. But... in addition to the lack of a wakeup alarm, there's one other major ding: it's a watch, and I already have a watch I like (LG G Android Wear watch).
Given this, I'm really, really hoping that some company will step up to the plate and create an Android Watch that's an awesome activity and sleep tracker.
Yeah, I know that at least a couple Android Wear watches have heart rate tracking, but I'm not sure if any of them connect that data with Google Fit. And none of them have body temperature or other additional sensors to help w/ sleep tracking (e.g., REM detection and so on).
Keeping my fingers crossed, wrist and wallet ready.......... :)
