Nice, but returned for lack of notification customization, September 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
Returned the item. In terms of my past fitness activity tracker experience, I’ve owned the Garmin Vivofit, Fitbit One, Fitbit Force, Fitbit Flex, Soleus Go, and now used the Striiv Touch. So far, my ideal was the Fitbit Force (however had a skin reaction, and so back it went with the recall). I’ll compare this to all of them (in some form/fashion)

Striiv Touch – I liked the overall size and feel. The pattern on the band gave it a very cool feel and look, def a step up compared to the Force. The clasp is about the same mechanism, no real difference (so would continued to use an o-ring to make sure it doesn’t pop off).

Charging was easy enough. It was similar to the Soleus Go, in that it was something that strapped physically onto the tracker. However, it was much easier than the Go. The Go was the weird rubber band type thing, had to get enough tension to get good contact so allow charging. The Striiv Touch has this little box that snaps around the tracker, then you plug in the microUSB to the “cradle”. Easy enough. No real qualms about this method.

Interface – Initially didn’t like it, however def grew on me after a day or so. You had to press on the screen and sorta hold your finger on it for a few seconds before it activates. No tapping (like the Flex), not always on (Vivofit), not with the push of a button (Force and Go!). In face, there are no physical buttons on the device. To navigate between menus, you slide your finger and can push the buttons on the screen (once the screen is activated by the long press/hold). It was easy to read in all light I used (outside, inside, in my bed). It also wasn’t overly cluttered (like the Soleus Go). The interface was very easy to figure out after about 15 min playing around with the device.

Fitness tracking – Description says built into app. In reality, no. It tracks your steps within the app, but you can’t log exercise. You download RunKeeper and can link to it, that’ll track your fitness/exercise.

Notifications – ehhhh, definitely the biggest reason I’m returning it. Sometimes I got a buzz but couldn’t figure out why (no new emails/texts/calls in my phone ~ iPhone 5). Also, every email I got would show up (I used Boxer for my mail and they’d show up fine). However, I get dozens of emails every day, don’t really care about them. There is no way to selectively disable notifications. I found a thread in their forum about this under “feature requests”, that was dated approx 2 months ago, with no updates regarding it’s development/integration.

Alarm – Still “coming soon”. Only hack I’ve found is to set an actual calendar event with an alarm. Very tedious compared to the Flex/Force.

Overall – Definitely an step in the right direction, but until they polish up the app and allow more customization of which notifications get pushed over, I don’t think that feature is worth anyone’s time. And as such, I don’t think it’s worth the ~ I paid.

Never had a dedicated activity monitor before and I was waiting for the FitBit Force but got tired of waiting. I noticed Best Buy had bad reviews but also noticed that the majority of the reviewers were android users – the website is pretty clear on what the Striiv is and isn’t compatible with. So, if you’re a non-iPhone user, be aware.

How does this track movement compared to other devices out there? I can’t say. But after having this, I do realize that I don’t really care about my "steps per day" because my primary work outs are spin and yoga which obviously, the movement of those two aren’t "step-like" motions. That is NOT a fault of the Striiv and not the reason why I removed one star.

I believe they will have a vibrating alarm like the force in the future – but it currently isn’t available, from what I can see from the forums. It just has a sleep tracker. That will be the next big positive feature for me when it rolls out.

People say they have issues with the firmware updates – but as long as you follow the instructions, it’s not a problem. What I found to work for me is to 1) open the Striiv App; 2) Say Yes to the Firmware Update; 3) Factory Reset via the wristband 4) Device to install update.

What I do like the most is the alerts – I have my phone on silent at work and when it’s charging, it’s out of my line of sight. Or, when I leave work, I forget to turn it off silent so getting alerts/notifications is the biggest plus on this for me.

The reason I did remove a star is that you cannot set which types of alerts to receive – Any push notifications that come on my phone, come through the Striiv. So my NBC news update, any games that I play that have push notifications… so that is a little annoying.

Also – it is hard to see in the sunlight but it’s not a deal breaker for me.

Good device that is becoming Great. Hoping for Awesome someday…, July 25, 2014
By 
Ange Rosser (Montgomery, TX United States) – See all my reviews

Received my recently. Running my on an iPhone. New update today activated calendar notifications. In three weeks I’ve received 3 updated to the watch software. Next update hopefully will let me control my music while exercising. Great for the price. I had a fitbit zip before and knew I needed a display as I really enjoyed that. All the extra functions are icing on the cake.
