Well i bought this thinking i was buying a cheaper alternative to a fitbit style device. All i can say is , it's cheaper for a reason. At first after inserting the battery all was well . I logged in using the app and put in the usual height weight etc. Then after 1 day of usage it stopped syncing to the app . Bearing in mind that it's supposed to sync every 20 minutes or so , after a full 24 hours gone with a blank screen and no sync button or a pull down to sync screen .I emailed the support team at jawbone .I got no reply after 3 days! Fitbit usually reply within hours from previous experience.so after many attempts at unistalling and reinstalling the device and app i have given up. Luckily i try and only buy from Amazon prime sellers so i can send it back no hassle. Guess sometimes you get what you pay for .Rant over 😆

- Runtastic have a all day fitness tracker. Think it was £25 last time I looked.40w
- Ian BartonModeratorMy Mi Band, the one with a screen (it was about £25) and has been very reliable. Depends on what you want it for. The Mi does steps, sleep patterns and notifications. It also has an HRM, which isn't accurate unless you have the strap tight.40w
- Jawbone do have a bad rep from previous products. One of several aryicles. https://www.engadget.com/2016/09/23/jawbone-dropped-by-customer-service-provider-for-failure-to-pay/
I have a Mi Band 2 which is pretty darn good for £19 and superb when used with extra app Mi Band Tools which adds customisable notifications and more.40w
- I used to have a mi band 1 . When I had a lumina , i sold it because the app was rubbish. Guess now I'm on android the app is far better .40w
- The Mi Band Tools app is an independent app. It is worth paying for as it brings a lot more functionality to the Band.
Includes Custom vibrations! SMS text scrolling. Alarms. I am just a satisfied user. Only for Android though, iPhones are too locked down.
As far as the Band goes, I have done comparison with Fitbit One and the Band seems to under read by about 15℅. From careful monitoring the Band seems not to register steps until you have been moving for >20 steps hence it doesn't register short bursts of movement. Once I am walking it seems quite accurate.40w
- Julie WillsModeratorI've had a Jawbone UP3 (wristband) since last August, and I've had no problems syncing. Not that that helps you, of course.
It does sound as though Jawbone are probably not expecting to produce any new products, and therefor aren't likely to support existing products very well either.40w
- have.there are a lot of people giving bad reviews for the earlier model.the jawbone move uses an older app to the one you40w
