    Cheap fitbit type tracker

    Hi, anyone any thoughts on a good, cheap fitbit type tracker which displays at least a bit of a text message? Have tried a couple of cheap ones off Amazon (Mpow - didn't charge and Wilful - didn't display texts etc), and considered the Xiaomi Mi Band but it doesn't display text messages. Any other thoughts for about £30? Cheers.

    My mi band 2 dose displays texts and what's app as of 2 weeks ago. You need the mi band tools app £2. It's basic but works OK

    Thanks wayners. Does it just display that a text has come in and I.D., or does it show any of the message itself? Cheers.

    ​can confirm this band is great. has lots more options than fitbit and notifies when text or call comes in too. what is the app for £2 you use? I have a free one but interested in this if it's better

    Message scrolls. Not great as in bits. Vibrates at same time. Shows caller id at start. You need to be quick to catch the start. For £20 I can't complain

    Thanks, sounds good. I know it's cheaper from China, but might pick one up from Amazon £30 on Prime...

    can confirm my 2 mi band 2's failed. Both have lost bluetooth and hr sensing. Will only do time/steps now. Great when they worked though-cheap forv a reason i think.
