The sleek design and battery life are positive features, but the band runs small and changing the battery can be complicated. The tracker is accurate and comfortable to wear. The Bluetooth connectivity is lacking and the display could be better.

  • No battery-charge worry
  • Can be worn on ankle
  • Basic, reliable fitness tracker
