Ive had the flex and now the charge. I personally recommend paying more money for the charge as it has more functions and the wristband is sturdier.
My flex fell off and got lost so i only had it for a few weeks (not happy!) but at the time i really liked it. I bought for £36 over Black Friday but this is one of the lowest price ive seen since

I would just add to the above that I've had my flex on my wrist since Christmas day and its never fallen off or felt loose, the previous poster may just have had a faulty wrist strap.
Love my flex

I've also got a flex, bought it April last year and never had an issue with it falling off. Can't comment on other types as I've only had the flex, but I love it, and it's a real eye opener to see how lazy you are, but also how easy it is the increase your activity.

Alright folks, is this kind of like a Nike Fuel band then? My mate has one of them and said it helps out with fitness and activity.

£3.95 delivery online.

Where do i put the code? can i use code for collection?

I can't seem to find it in stock for Collection from Store, or for Delivery?

Had one of these for a couple of years. Still going strong. The silent alarm feature is under-publicised and very handy. You configure them from the app and you can have as many as you like.

Only downside to the fitbit products is that they don't currently support healthkit on iPhones. However there's a very cheap app called 'Sync Solver' which will force the data to sync across at the end of each day.

I had one of the Sony Smartbands and found it to be nothing but a glorified pedometer so sold it on eBay - does this offer anything above the Smaartband?

Look like only black in stock....£51.14 delivered

Tempted by one of these? But not quite sure what it does? Has it got a GPS in it? Fancy the more expensive one with a clock on it

Any way to get the discount when collecting instore?

Hi I was also looking to get the xiaomi mi band from tinydeal ....what do you think of it ? Cheers

I have a Mi Band (from TinyDeal) and I also bought my friend one as a present. We both think the band is great especially for the price.

Build quality is good, battery life is amazing (quoted as 30 days standby but get well over that, near 45 days!), the silicone bands are comfy and cheap (approx 3 bands for £3.99 delivered from TinyDeal), the app is basic at the moment but more gets added to it often. It does step counting well, can do running tracking with GPS (on phone, not the band) and it has sleep tracking. There's a modified version of the app in the manufacturer's forum that has support for notifications on the band. Any app that has notifications is supported and you can set the vibration amount, length, LED colour (full RGB control) and number of LED flashes. There's also vibrating alarm support.

The Mi Band is basic compared to other smart bands but well worth the £13 to £15 cost in my opinion especially when using the modified app.

This is the modified Mi Band app: http://en.miui.com/thread-53761-1-1.html

The band can also be used as a Trusted Devise in Android.

As pointed out at the end of the clip, it is not the fact that the trackers are all tracking different values, using 1 tracker constantly will "guide" you to do more and by using one tracker constantly, you will have a trend showing your activity. Each tracker has an algorithm and a margin of error, but using only 1 tracker type will keep the algorith and error constant, so even though it is not 100% accurate, the trend over time should be valuable to making you be more active. Lara even states in the clip that she will defo wear one as it is forcing her to be more active, and in the end that is what we buy these for,not their accuracy.

As a follow up, I walk at lunchtime with other friends and we all track our activity using Windows phones and Samsung phones. We use Runtastic and Endomodo and we never get the same results even when walking together. I also tried Runtastic on a Nokia Lumia 920 and 930 at the same time and got 2 different results. The point is stick to 1 device and use it as a guide, plus I walked to the shop to perform this test instead of driving like I would have done previously.

Thanks OP.

Just ordered the Fitbit Charge used the 20% voucher and had a £5 voucher to use up, so with delivery it was £62.94 delivered Friday.

Was going to get the Charge HR but wanted slightly better battery life and if i will be wearing it all the time i didnt really want a buckle. Will see how i get on!

Great price and got another £5 voucher.

Tried to use with charge and the code doesn't work.
Say discount code applied-promotional discount £0:00

Code works on flex.
What exact charge model/colour did you get the code to work on?

Got given one of these at work, been using for a few days and It does seem a waste of time. All it does is tracks your steps/runs and your sleep. These can be easily done with a phone.

Am I missing out on something? Will most likely be ebaying.

You wear this on your wrist so have it constantly on you and it's proven a lot more accurate than a phone in a pocket.
However it is just a glorified pedometer - if you are already fit or want to accurately track calories then this is a pointless item to own (I had one for over a year), however if you just want to encourage yourself to move a little more then it works quite well as a motivational device I found - wanted to get to that daily goal becomes a part of your life!

Personally I wouldn't bother, spend a little more on something with more features (I have the Garmin Forerunner 15 which also serves as a watch, GPS for running, activity tracker and heart rate monitor).

I have had to send my Charge back twice since Christmas, I had been doing nothing out of the ordinary just normal use. If you look at the help forums too they seem to be full of bugs. In the end I just completely returned mine, gonna get a HR hopefully they've ironed out the problems with that one. Anyone else had trouble with their Charge?

You carry a WiiFit around with you all day? You must be pretty fit already...

Got my mi band today, 3 weeks delivery but only £11 from TinyDeal. Seems a great device for the money, instant notifications work brilliantly. Only had for a day but seems to be fairly accurate. Hasn't said I've been sleeping even though lounging about all day, even gave an accurate description of a walk to the shops (Time spot on and distance was bang on at 1.3 km, truly exact.)

are these any good if you run on a treadmill or something like that??

Eutastic, endomondo and fitbit all work on windows phone. Buy a new Lumia Phone and get a free fitbit flex

Totally agree with Elec's post. I've been using the miband for just over a month and I think it's fantastic, especially for the price - makes all others seem insanely expensive for the same features.
- The pedometer steps are pretty accurate compared to the Omron pedometer I was using before
- It seems to judge my falling asleep and waking up times incredibly accurately (can't judge whether it judges deep/light sleep accurately as I'm asleep so I don't know!)
- Syncs flawlessly with my Android phone
- Can be set to vibrate and flash when you get a call or message or email
- Lasts a month between charges even with notifications on

Notes:
- Apparently only works with Android 4.4 and certain bluetooth versions so check this before you get it (this is probably true of many of these bands though)
- There is an iphone app but I haven't tried it so can't comment
- You can't set your stride length - it just calculates it based on your height, so as my stride length is apparently longer than average it consistently underestimates my distances by around 10% (vs GPS distance)
- The app is supposedly a bit more limited than the Fitbit/Jawbone apps in terms of features to motivate you - this doesn't bother me but if you want things like integration with myfitnesspal or whatever, this might be a limitation for you
- Definitely worth getting the modified app mentioned by Elec for the notification features

Gone back up in price

Original Poster

I've had it a week and i love it! I synced it with my "My fitness pal' app where i track my daily food and it works brill.
The strap is very secure if you clip it on properly and as yet i cant say that i need a heart rate monitor or a clock and i certainly dont need to talk on mobile with the more expensive 'Charge' model. If you can get it at the price i did i say go for it!
