Decent little tracker. Step above an activity tracker, but not quite an all singing dancing multi-sport tracker. Good for running, and at this price its a good deal.

Worth noting this deal is also on Amazon, same price.
Would like to get one of these for the Mrs but I think there a little too bulky.
Great price but I couldn't get on board with it, sent it back after three days. Impressive features but the screen quality was extremely poor and it is bulky.
I would save up a few more pennies and try to get the Vivoactive HR when it's on sale. Mine was £190 and the addition of GPS makes it much more useful

Agreed - and it's currently £169.99 at Halfords, John Lewis, Wiggle etc etc which is a pretty decent price
This or fitbit blaze?
Was looking at similar devices to track runs recently and ended up going for a Samsung Gear Fit 2. Ebay is awash with them due to recent promotions, and managed to pick up 2 brand new ones for £70 each. Very happy with it so far..

This has its own GPS, whereas the Blaze has "connected GPS" which is where it uses your phone's GPS. I personally like leaving my phone at home when I go for a short run, so it would be a no brainier for me.

In this case, at just £30 more I would definitely recommend the Vivoactive over this one. Then again it does depend on whether you plan on doing exercise or if you just want an activity tracker.
Bought one for the misses earlier in year, very good watch. The screen is basic but that's because it's not a smart watch it's a sports tracker. Works great and looks good, it's not wide but it is a bit too deep. And as someone said it has its own GPS so no need to link it.

Is this any good for cycling?
I have this, it takes forever to load the GPS, which is super annoying, just be careful with that.

Is this any good for cycling?

no,it doesn't connect to any sensors and looking at a watch while cycling is bad at the best of times let alone one with a display this small.

better off with one of the edge models.
Big advantage for me is you don't have to remove it when swimming - very few of the other brands are waterproof.
So I bought this 2 days ago...
I think the screen pretty good under natural light, the backlight isn't great tho, can be a problem if used for night runs, not much of a fuss. Its light and not that bulky once strapped on.
As for the gps mine connects pretty quick, about 10s.
Tracking is super accurate in distance, the app has so much information that it might be a bit too much at times xD!! Ut auto uploads to Strava too if you want it too.
I'm using it to run and cycle.
If you are not doing a super accurate training the screen is enough to check on the go while cycling and you can customise the info on it. It is not optimize for it tho, so you need to do the cycling as a "other" exercise and then change the type of exercise on the app/windows companion.
Battery seems quite, a bit inpressive.
Uses firstbeat technology which is awesome!
Since I work at a hospital I compared the HR monitor on a band to a Oxygen Saturation probe (finger one) and 5 lead ecg monitor. I have to say I was impressed with it's accuracy.
The bad: the app keeps vibrating the phone whenever the band disconnects from bluetooth which is a bit of a waste of the phone battery, no solution on the forums that I could find...
Score a 8/10 dor this price due to the GPS on band + waterproof + functionality.
Hope this helps.
Amazon look to have price matched this:
