Fitness Tracker Wristband - August SWB100

Fitness Tracker Wristband - August SWB100

Product Review (submitted on 4 July 2016):
I had been recommended to purchase a fitness wristband but was just not convinced by all the hype and especially not of the price you pay for a Fitbit compared to the August SWB100. Once I purchased the August SWB 100 I placed it on charge overnight just to make sure it received a full charge. You have to charge it by USB through a laptop alternatively you can purchase a USB plug that you would normally plug an iPhone or iPad into. I haven't bothered and am more than happy to charge it from my Laptop, a full charge lasts for about three days if not longer.

I was very surprised at all the different functions it has. Before you start you need to download the August App to your phone then synchronise them using bluetooth, it was very simple to do. Once you have synchronised the two then you can set the wrist band to how many steps you want to achieve daily alone with KM traveled and calories used. Apart from these functions you can also use it to measure how much sleep you have and if you are in a light or deep sleep. If you want to can set the wrist band to vibrate if you receive a message or phone call. I have now used the SWB100 for a week and am impressed with it. I am unsure how it accurately measures everything you set it to record and have only found inaccuracies in the step count when I am driving, it seems to count turning the steering wheel as a step. To resolve this I take it off whilst driving.
