Watch for yourself – is the foundation of our lives. Follow him into the words, actions, food, clothing, without it we are not complete. Yes, there are people who do not pay due attention to themselves, but they drop out of society. Or become geniuses. And if you’re just a man who wants to look dignified, the pace of modern life, when the time is running out, just need a helper. And not even one. For example, to calculate the physical activity come up with a lot of applications and devices, all kinds of smart watches and review upcoming fitness trackers. One of these bracelets came to the editorial office to review, and now we know how it differs from the others.
Review upcoming fitness trackers: Design
Most of the review upcoming fitness trackers made in sporty style, so a classic image of the business or they will not fit. And you do not want to take it off because then the sense in buying? So, for the girls, who spend most of the day in the office with business people and partners, as well as admirers of classics and romantics invented UP 2. Well, actually, it would be invented, in any case, but now it’s not just athletes and attribute hipsters, but it can also be a companion absolutely every category of people. Since the new design perfectly combines the best sports in the form of a rubber strap and the actual panel with sensors and other settings made so gracefully that the device can be confused with some expensive decoration. Although the price is very good pull on the jewelry.
The same panel of metal and has a beautiful pattern in the form of countervailing firs, which are very attractive shimmer in the light. Rubber strap, with matching sockets, gray color. On sale there is the black version, which is more suitable for men. By the way, I want to note that after a week wear rubber surface is dirty and worn off considerably, but an attempt to remove these marks are only partially successful. Latch and metal, and because of a good metal. It is very original framed and regulated by the circumference of the brush there without any holes, to which we are accustomed. Fixing reliable, bracelet does not open and does not stretch. The only trouble is waiting for owners of long manes – the buckle may accidentally catch the hair during combing, for example.
The main body of the central review upcoming fitness trackers have subtle indicators that signal the bracelet. Three of them, and they are in the form of figures. Colors, too, are three and they do not change – red, white, blue. In the next section, I’ll detail that any means, but for now let us return to the appearance.
A very important point – in the case there are no buttons! Touch panel, but it can be used only to turn off the alarm, and the other points need to be addressed, taking out your smartphone and start the application. On the back, inner side there is a small area with contacts, which is used for charging. By the way, that this point manufacturers and thoughtful and not thought at a time. Desiring to reduce the number of controls and interfaces, developers have achieved a perfect minimalism, and the same happened with the charger – it is super small, compact and convenient, even after a little practice. But in terms of comfort, in principle, charging developers lose. It is necessary to adapt, and in any place where there is a socket, to charge the device does not come out. Plus charger is made to charge from the laptop, but here it is necessary to position the device. The fact is that cable magnets attached to the surface hours, so get something like a cross without the upper bar. Therefore, place it on the “feeding” and does not need to tear off the magnet get the hand. Very pleased that the bracelet is open until 6-7 days on a single charge.
The manufacturer claims that the review upcoming fitness trackers is waterproof. Slits on the sides of the strap subtly hinted that this may be doubted. In the end, I still dare to wash dishes and basically never thought about the bracelet, just as hand soap, but to dive with him did not try. I can confidently say that the water droplets from falling onto the housing, the bracelet was not injured.
With regard to ease of wear. It’s like a regular bracelet, it does not cause discomfort, unless you have an intolerance of foreign bodies on themselves. He does not cling to clothes, sitting securely, it becomes loose and not all quite neat, slim and, as I said, is suitable for any style of clothing (just do not try to come in evening dress with him to the opera, for it has diamonds).
Jawbone UP 2: Functionality
To work with the bracelet, you need a mobile device with Bluetooth and proprietary applications from UP Jawbone, which can be installed for free for iOS, and for Android. Synchronization takes a few minutes, you’ll need a couple of times surface panels and smart phone to congratulate you on a successful operation. Alternately blinking all three indicators. They are made in the form of running figures, clouds and moon posts.
The application interface is pretty cute and simple English, but intuitive. Once the program will offer to register, enter their details (name, height, weight, age), will select the program for you to share interesting facts (for example, I was really pleased to know that people with similar with my performance sleep an average of 7 hours and 1 minute ) and will encourage tips.
The review upcoming fitness trackers home page displays a small graphic in the form of two columns – a dream and steps. Clicking on one of them, you get more information on each item. For example, going to the column of sleep, you can keep track of when you had a lighter phase of sleep, when the deep, and when you wake up.
Column steps are probably the most interesting place. There are shown periods of activity, periods of “calm”, there is even an icon dawn. For more detailed results, you need an internet connection, and then you will know how many calories spent per day, how much to spend in the most active period as the most active period lasted, how much time spent in a sitting position and the schedule of activity steps over a period of time. If you followed the plan for the day, review upcoming fitness trackers wishes you a mild vibration and flashing Running Man and cloud the message.
For the office plankton (and myself included) have a very useful feature Idle Alert, activating that bracelet will alert you when the vibration that you sat and it is desirable to get up, blinked, and to make a tea. Three birds with one stone at a time, because your eyes need a rest, but also a day to at least two liters of water! Just select the time of your work day.
Apart from the general activity in the diary every day, you can keep the training diary. Moreover, there are many options for sports.
I really like the smart alarm function. You set the time of awakening, review upcoming fitness trackers and wakes you in a period of 30 minutes prior to the specified time when the body is in a phase of light sleep. The most interesting thing is that the vibration is turned off until you ascend. In any case, it is soft, not aggressive enough and delicately wakes from sleep. Try this method on myself, I can say that it is easier to wake up really. And yes, life hacking: Insert the desired time later, because bracelet and can wake you up in half an hour and 15 minutes.
Also impressed by the care and development, and their advice and suggestions. For example, the day of this writing, I slept only five hours and prompted the application that night I should go to bed at 23:20 to thoroughly relax. What he’s smart! The timetable of my waking and going to sleep, and know the best time to go!
Review upcoming fitness trackers: Impression
For a week of testing, I found that the review upcoming fitness trackers are slightly exaggerating result. I think that it is possible to take a thousand steps at the end of the working day. However, periods of activity, duration, and used it considers kilocalories accurately. Now for the dream. Compared with the first version of the band, the device automatically switches into sleep mode, so just putting on the bracelet and go yourself, take a shower, running, dancing, and then, from time to time, transfers the accumulated data on the smartphone.
Not to say that the band changed my life radically. But the fact that he has brought clarity and did my awakening much more enjoyable, it is a fact. Besides, he is handsome and well suited as an accessory to almost any outfit. Yes, yes and yes!
