The health and fitness wearable space is getting crowded with the introduction of yet another device. the Striiv band.
Like most other wristband trackers, Striiv band tracks your steps, calories burned, distance and duration of the activity. Using easy-to-read LED lights, you can check your goal progress throughout the day. In addition, Striiv band also monitors your sleep; it records the hours slept and the time awakened.
Striiv band aims to take the boredom out of daily exercise by motivating you to walk or run more via games. Myland, the first fitness based game on a pedometer, requires you to walk and run to accelerate your progress in the game. Your goal in the game is to bring back animals on an enchanted island by planting, building trees and places to live. What you can build depends on how much you walk and run.
Besides making exercising a more enjoyable activity, Striiv band also motivates you to walk more by converting your steps into a donation for charity. It is said to be the first pedometer to do so; Striiv and corporate partners will donate on your behalf.
The wristband tracker is also integrated with MyFitnessPal, the biggest free online health community. Using its huge database of foods and drinks, MyFitnessPal allows you to track what you eat to meet your dietary goals.
Other specs of the Striiv band include water resistance, weight of 14g, an OLED ion hardened glass screen and Bluetooth 4.0 support. It is compatible with Apple iOS devices running iOS 7 or newer, and specific Android devices running version 4.3 or later. For the full list of compatible devices, click here.
