Totally misleading along with Map My Fitness, October 17, 2013

This review is from: Sync Burn Band Watch (Sports)
Asked for this as a gift so I could track my heart rate, steps and distance with the Map My Fitness app I use on my android phone. The descriptions on Amazon. Map My Fitness and Sync Burn’s manufacturer’s site all indicate one can do this. First even using a Samsung S4, you cannot sync with the Map My Fitness app as the Bluetooth on this device is not recognizable via the phone. Moreover the Map My Fitness app is only looking for something to plug into your headphone jack in order to transfer the data. So that was impossible. So then before sending it back, I decided to try it via the computer and the web based Map My Fitness program which had a nice logging of my hikes (via my smartphone). I even went out and bought a new Bluetooth dongle that was the latest. Like the Samsung S4, the device is not visible to the computer either. The computer showed all other Bluetooth signals within range but not the SyncBurn. So it wouldn’t even sync with the computer effectively making this useless to track heart rate, steps and miles unless I manually entered the data from the almost unreadable screen on the SyncBurn device. Moreover, I checked with Map My Fitness’s support section and it only vaguely stated that issues would be addressed in the future. I gave this two stars because the device was accurate and I checked it against the pulse reading on my recumbent exercise bike. Distance was comparable to what both my phone logged (via a built in steps counter) and via the Map My Fitness app. So for measuring one’s heart rate, mileage etc, this device is great. For keeping track of it, it is useless unless one has the time to manually enter it into a program. Still all of this is false advertising (not by Amazon) but by Map My Fitness and by Syncactive, the makers of the Sync Burn product. So while I like what the device can potentially do, I was very unsatisfied with the lack of integration.

Good addition to Map My Walk, December 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Sync Burn Band Watch (Sports)
This syncs easily with Map My Walk/Run/etc. app. I use it to take into account walking and yard work where I’m actually getting a lot of work, but not on a route. I’ve also tried it downhill skiing. I’m not sure what it measured but it did seem like the overal effort calculated was in the ballpark.

One drawback is the display is somewhat hard to read in some light conditions.
