of all the data the SmartBand is generating through the day.
The app has a great interface that lets you see what all you have done during the day in an animated timeline format. My first day with the SmartBand for instance ended with 2,249 calories being burnt. But the app told me that my 45-minute morning walk only helped burn 209 calories and the rest was done passively. However, I was very close to my daily calories burn goal of 2,500. With 5,493 steps, I was also short of my 7,500 steps goal.
But the band does much more than log workouts. It knew I had travelled 92 minutes by car, which was spot on. Being connected to the phone it also told me how many minutes I spend communicating and even plotted the pictures I took during the day on my timeline. But the most impressive part what how the band had logged my sleeping hours, showing how many hours was deep sleep and how much was light sleep.
The band and the app work in tandem to create life bookmarks. So if you meet a friend from school after a long gap, you can click the button on the band to mark that point in time. Then edit the bookmark on the app to mark the event.
I think the wealth of this data after a period of time will be a wonderful asset for most of us. And it won’t be long before other apps start tapping into this data to offer great insights about our life.
The Sony SmartBand is the best and easiest wearable band in the market. It can really let its users create a wonderful lifelog and help them lead a healthier life. We just need to be more disciplined in life to remember to wear the band and click the right buttons when needed.
