I had hope to come to all of you with this brand new item sooner as I am sure this item will be a must have for Christmas. I am very into fitness, and being as healthy, and active as I can be. However it’s a little hard to figure out if I am getting my recommended daily steps in, or if I am burning enough calories, and being active enough. The Nuband Fitness and Activity Tracker takes all the guessing out of it for you. It tracks your daily steps, calories burned, and distance gone. It tracks all of these things and syncs them up to an App that is free for download in your Apps store or Google Play. It is compatible with iOS 7.0 version and above, as well as the Android 4.3 version and above.
The Nuband Activity Trackers comes in a 3 different colors, pink, blue and black. The tracker pops out of the rubber wrist band for easy charging with a supplied USB cord. Once fully charged, which takes an average of 3 hours the tracker is estimated to last up to 7 days. The Nuband Activity and Fitness Tracker is highly comparable to the leading brands of fitness trackers. I love that the face display of the tracker shows the time where as my husband’s tracker does not.
Lets review some other features the Nuband Activity Tracker offers.
- It’s water resistant and can be worn in the shower.
- It track your sleeping patterns, and determines if you have a restless night.
- Syncing your information to your device is simple and sharing via Facebook and Twitter is easy with Nuband.
- The tracker will vibrate when you’ve been inactive for a certain amount of time.
- The Nuband also offers a vibrating alarm clock, when the alarm goes off the band begins to vibrate softly.
Cost varies by store, but has an average retail value of 50.00 to 80.00. When comparing them to the leading brands this one is more cost efficient and has the same if not more features then the average fitness tracker.
With this product being new to the market there isn’t a ton of companies carrying it in stores yet. However it is available on the Peebles Website or the Jcpenny’s Website. It’s also offered in stores at JCPenny’s but I would give JCPenny’s a chance to restock online as they sold over 2000 of them on black Friday and will be restocked by the end of this week. They are also working on getting a Facebook Page up and running. Once one is setup I will be sure to link it here. In the mean time visit there website. I just got word that there maybe a new product line coming in 2015, so stay tuned for more information on that.
Before I end this review I will say the only thing I don’t love about this product is that the clock runs a 24 hour time setting vs the 12. Meaning it’s now 1:53pm, but my tracker shows it to be 13:53. I haven’t been able to find away to change that, but when I do, i will update it here.
