iHealth Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker

The iHealth Activity and Sleep Tracker tracks every step you take, distance traveled, calories burned, and sleep efficiency. It uses Bluetooth 4.0 with low energy technology and is sweat, rain and splash proof. Its silent alarm feature wakes you up gently without disturbing the person next to you, and the smart alarm feature helps you remember to be more active. A playful Activity Level feature motivates you to be more active for different levels of steps achieved. Each Tracker comes with two color options for wristbands and waist clips. This Tracker, along with the free iHealth MyVitals app, can keep you motivated and help you stay on track to a more active and healthier lifestyle.

Two Ways to Wear It

The Tracker can be worn one of two ways: on your wrist, or on your waist with the clip provided. When wearing on your waist, always use the clip provided, as the clip will trigger the Tracker to switch from “wrist tracking” to “waist tracking,” for maximum tracking accuracy.

Free iHealth MyVitals App Lets You Do More

The free integrated MyVitals mobile app brings all iHealth products to life. Once you’ve downloaded it from the App Store, you can customize it for the products you use. iHealth makes it easy to set goals, track your progress and get inspired to manage your personal health in a more hands-on way, wherever you go.

Keep it in the Cloud

The iHealth app comes with a free online cloud service, where all of your data is backed up and stored securely. Log in to the app from any device and access everything, regardless of where you first recorded it. Weight. Blood pressure. Diet. Physical activities. They’re all aspects of your personal health and they’re all interconnected. So iHealth decided its mobile app should follow suit. Managing your health just got a lot more interesting. No matter which products you’re using, you can share results instantly to friends, family, even your doctor. The app also lets you track multiple users across different devices.

About iHealth

iHealth designs innovative, mobile personal healthcare products for everyone. iHealth’s line of wireless scales and blood pressure monitors has been revolutionary in the industry and continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Self-monitoring is not a new concept in healthcare. There are great products on the market that help people measure weight, blood pressure and other vital stats. The challenge with many of these products is that user data lives in the device only, and can’t be easily visualized, tracked or shared. iHealth’s integration with mobile technology has captured the imagination of its users, who can now measure, track and share their data, and play a more active role in managing their health.

I’ve had my iHealth tracker for at least 3 weeks now and have found both positives and negatives about it. I’ll just report my experience and let the reader decide.

First, mine only cost about 60 bucks, on sale at Walgreens. I purchased it using my FSA card since this tracker is FSA eligible. My first complaint about it was that the styling isn’t very chic. The look of it on your arm will definitely not gain you “cool” points.

Set up was very easy though and you can do it without the aid of instructions. Just download the free app, enable bluetooth on the device that you used to load the app, go to the app Settings, and let the app “find” the tracker and you’re all set. I recommend enabling the save to the Cloud function else your alarms will only go to the app and not the tracker.

It syncs to the device at the touch of a button. I like the app. I have it loaded on an iPad and it’s easy to read and to update. I wish it had more functionality, like the ability to drill down to more detail in the Sleep data, but it does allow me to manually enter blood presser data which is a plus since I don’t use the monitor that you can purchase as part of this line. I found entering Meal data as difficult as it is on most other Nutrietion apps so I won’t take points away from this device on that one. You can “save” meals though so that you don’t have to start from scratch recreating the details of a meal that you’ve had before.

The device itself was fine to wear, at first, but by day 7 I found that the weight of it began to annoy me, especially during sleep. It’s thick and would cause me some discomfort during the night. I eventually began wearing it on my arm backwards at night, which helped some.

My greatest disappointment with the device is that it does not work reliably for me. A few times each week I sync it just after waking only to find that it stopped recording 2 hours in. It has shutdown twice, though it had plenty of charge left. Since the sleep data is my favorite thing about both the device and the app, I found this discouraging.

The iHealth tracker is one of the few wristband trackers that has an actual display so you can press the button anytime and see the time, number of steps, distance covered, calories burned and battery life. It’s easy to set for sleep mode but I find it is sometimes reluctant to switch it back into steps mode. I have, at least once, reset the device by holding the button for too long in an attempt to get it to change modes. Also, I find that slipping it into the wrist band is difficult. It pushes out easy enough though.

It has good battery life; I usually go 3 days on a charge. And it only takes 2 hours to give it a full charge. It is “splash resistant.” It’s at accurate at counting steps as any other accelerometer.

I plan to return mine for a refund. I would suffer through the styling of it if it more reliably collected sleep data, but waking to find that it stopped tracking at 11:30pm is too discouraging for me.

Superior Product Once You Get It Figured Out, February 3, 2014

This review is from: iHealth Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker for iPhone and Android (Sports)
I have had the Activity Monitor (Pedometer) for over 2 weeks. I have been a Fitbit user for over a year. However, I found multiple times the Fitbit band broke. I also found recharging the Fitbit was difficult — removing the wee little device and placing in charger, etc.Yet, I got the Ihealth pedometer and sleep tracker only because I purchased the ihealth blood pressure monitor, so I thought, ‘why not try this too?’ I am now pleasantly surprised. Here’s why.

First, the device is a black disk 1/4 inch think. I quickly learned that to use it as pedometer, I must forget about the blue sport watch band or clip to the pants that both come included. Go exclusively with the black night sleeve around the wrist day and night, even though it is intended for only the sleeping period. This way you are not snapping the black disk in and out day and night into / out of its blue watch band, etc. Just be careful that when you put the unit in the black wrist sleeve to wedge it around far from the sleeve hole so it might not inadvertently slip out of through its sleeve-hole. This takes care of 90% of complaints I read in other reviews.

Second, I appreciate the device syncs easily with my Ipod 5th generation. It will do so with latest Iphones as well. You have to run the Ihealth app. I like this so much better than my Fitbit syncing. With the Fitbit, I had periodic trouble syncing to my PC — often having to hit sync 2x to get to link, and then having to look up on PC page to find data made it to be sure. Here, sync is instantaneous, and instantly visible in the Activity list. You can also use the PC to look at the data because the Ihealth app data is sent up to your ihealth account. I like the charts both on the app and pc to visualize your progress,

Third, the Ihealth sleep tracking is exceptional and accurate. I got a flu soon after the purchase. I had a lot of opportunities to track sleep, and pay close attention to the unit’s accuracy. I knew how many times I woke up, the time periods, etc. I could tell this tracked it all like glue. I also found this super easy to set up at night as I went to bed, even in the dark. I would pull the device out of the wrist sleeve, press 2 seconds on the small button on the side, see the ZZZ symbol come up, and now I knew it was sleep tracking. When I wake up, I pull the unit out of the sleep sleeve, press the button, and it turns off. I then enjoy looking at my Ipod, hitting sync on the Ipod ihealth app screen, and I see quickly how well or poorly I slept. The hour by hour chart allows me to see exactly the times in the night I woke up, how long, etc., when I got deep sleep, etc., and my sleep efficiency, etc. This is all visible also on the PC ihealth website.

Incidentally, another benefit is the family of products it works with. After I purchased this, I got the Ihealth scale too. I have a Fitbit scale, and it works fine, but I wanted to try this one out. What I like better about having this Ihealth scale is that it gives me A My Vitals at a Glance view on the PC app of my weight and BMI in parallel views. (The Fitbit PC app has these on 2 different screens). So by adopting this Activity tracker, you will find a family of other devices that work in tandem that will help you improve your health.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
Having used the FitBit, and returning said FitBit when it failed to record correctly, I’ve been on the lookout for something else. When iHealth became available I thought what the heck, lets try it.

Where the FitBit was small, the iHealth is pretty large. The device itself is round and can be popped out of the "bright" blue band it comes in stalled in and put in one of three other holders. There is a belt/pant clip in both blue and black and a black wrist band.

Because of its size I could not imagine having it on my wrist unless I used it only when I exercised. The pant/belt clip seems to be a way to keep it with me and record my life of activity without the annoying reminder I’m recording my life of activity. Plus the wrist bands are made out of a rubber like material that I can imagine would sweat badly in hot or humid (or hot and humid) weather.

The enclosed instruction manual is in English and French only. Not sure why Spanish was missed. Looking at iHealth’s support page did not quickly reveal any other manuals. The font size of the manual is small so people with visual issues may need a magnifier to clearly read the manual.

iHealth can communicate with your iPhone via a free downloadable application. Users of Android smartphones are out of luck as iHealth only supports the iPhone and users must have iOS 5 or later to use it. In order to use the iPhone app you need to create a user account.

Where the FitBit tracked more than walking, it seems the iHealth can track steps and sleep. iHealth also resets your stats at midnight so be sure to set the date/time correctly when it is first powered on. There is also the silent alarm which is meant to gently wake you up. Not sure about this feature for my husband who can sleep through horrible thunder storms (really loud thunder storms) or the vibrations of his iPhone going off during the night.

After creating my account, entering my vitals and pairing the phone and iHealth a popup shows a new firmware to be installed. Now I understand putting in my height, weight and age to the application but I have no idea if iHealth stores that information online. Well I quickly found the answer to that by logging in to iHealth’s website and there, staring back at me, were my vitals. Color me an unhappy camper.

Yes, I did see the iPhone app had a "guest" account that could be used. Sadly the iHealth will not pair to the guest account. A user must create an account in order to pair the device to the iPhone application.

A good thing though is no fiddly mess to set the date and time. The iHealth syncs date and time automatically from the application.

iHealth’s battery is not charged when received so charing it is required. But the manual gives no indication how long this will take. Also the included USB cable to connect the iHealth to a computer for charging is very short. Depending on your computer you could have the iHealth dangling off your desk to make an attractive cat toy should you have cats.

Thankfully one does not have to open the app daily. iHealth indicates it can store up to 14 days of activity between syncing the app to the device though the manual highly recommends you sync daily.

The manual shows the user how to enter sleep mode for tracking your sleep patterns and airplane mode when flying. All in all iHealth is going to be easy to use.

Just like the FitBit, I’ll probably update this review after I get more time in with the iHealth and learn more about using it.
