This actually got good reviews. It has its problems, but this is far superior to Fitbit and Jawbone devices. Excellent price.

Very good device. Bit bulky but it is the most accurate of them all. Needs recharging every day if you use the gps, battery indicator is rubbish 30%= flat on mine.
Bargain at this price, just wish the voice mic worked with google/iphone rather than just windows phones.
does it have sleep function? doesn't say do I'm guessing no, but thoughtful ask. I'd snap this up but want sleep function

It's got a good sleep function actually. I wish I didn't "snap this up" when it was £100 with £20 TCB about a month ago, Thanks to this website I thought I was getting a bargain.
Hi . Has this got a stopwatch feature that displays the elapsed time all the time until stopped (on the device, not on phone)? Thanks
Wow Wow Wow, so good. By the way, is there an alarm system if heart rate is too high?

Not sure, but if your heart stops it will defibrillate you ;-)
I have been very close to getting this over the last few weeks since the price started dropping but I'm finally going for it now. I guess it's possible it could get cheaper again. Perhaps there will be a black Friday offer but I don't think it can go much lower.

I was going to pick up the new one because the original was more a proof of concept from Microsoft and apparently allowed you to experience what it's like wearing a prison tag!, but the price is pretty good and I'm torn now whether to bite because the new one is pricey pretty much for the curved screen.

Yes there is stopwatch function
Could have bought this and traded in, dropping price of Band 2 to £185.
Trade in from Microsoft £70
Trade in end day preorder was 19th Nov. Might be worth checking to see if they extend it.

at this price it's worth another bash
Hot but must resist, already have a smartwatch and can't justify another gadget!!

Great price. Too bulky for me though and as someone mentioned, has the feel of a prison tag! Much prefer my Fitbit Surge.

Hot deal.
I was about to buy this but switched to charge hr because band being bulky, tough, one day battery, scratches on display.
Look at this thing... you couldn't pay me to wear it
You can buy this and use trade-up offer on microsoft store to save £15 on Microsoft Band 2.
Can't see any other reason to buy.

Great device in terms of features, but it really is quite uncomfortable. If you can live with it, then it has the best features for this sort of price.

I'm personally "downgrading" to the Up3. Does everything I want and is supposed to be a it more comfortable, with a seven day battery.

It's only a one day battery if you use the GPS function, something I don't believe the Fitbit has at all, so not really a fair comparison is it?
Without using GPS tracking, I got an easy two full days and nights use, with sleep tracking on.
Mine went back unfortunately as I was one of the ones who reacted to the rubber.
For what it's worth though, I didn't find it uncomfortable at all. Looks like it should be, but I found it fine.

How about because its a GREAT PRICE for something that was £169 only a few months back and that has better hardware than pretty much anything else around of its type...

Heated & purchased.

Got mine and I think it's mint tracks sleep well

Read up on it this morning. Seems lots of people got rashes from the charging port and the inner metal areas which also seems to corrode and blister easily even if cleaned. The new one has moved all that stuff to the outside. I kinda leaning away from getting this now if it really is that uncomfortable.
I bought one. I did read that it was uncomfortable. But after 3 weeks it is fine, no problems.
I have sold my Fitbit Surge as this was much better and has a slicker interface.

No brainer at this price!!
are there any other smart watches that work with windows phone? that would be more comfortable.

The Band 2 is a good choice and is a much better design but obviously because it's new costs more. It good value compared to an Apple Watch but not so much compared to normal fitness trackers. Also I pretty sure all Fitbit's work with Windows Phone.

Yeah it was gonna be a present for my wife - thought the medium would probably be the size to get. I might take a gamble on the small and return if it doesn't fit her.

Is the GPS a necessity?

Is the GPS a necessity?


Not at all, only if you want to track runs or bike rides... I never ever used it, as I do neither

No, but then neither is the whole thing.

No, but then neither is the whole thing.



I meant compared to the Fitbit Charge HR - seems to be the only missing tool.

HR measure distances apparently by counting steps!
Great price! Been wanting a smart watch for a while but it does look uncomfortable.might give it a try and return if it is too bulky
