You need an sony experia form to officialy enable transportation modes and track these things. If your phone is rooted, there is a way to make the app believe it is on an sony phone - just search for it on the forum
My general thoughts now on the platform:
While the idea was great 1 year ago - the development on this took way to long and the application is cumbersome to handle. The online website is a big disappointment and cumbersome to navigate. The insights gathered is pretty much useless since it does not provide proper statistics ( a weekly/monthly overview including all measurements would be too useful wouldn`t it?). The lifelog app doesn`t offer much for logging the life outside of what sony thinks that lifelogging means - it misses for example integration of a diary function - tracking of fitness related information (i.e. nutrition or manually entering information about a type of workout).
Looking at the documentation of the api its cumbersome to use and only provides access to "raw data" - there are no daily/weekly/monthly summaries available which means developers will have to put more of their own resources into using the api.
Now the api is finally available - but sony missed a huge step - starting the api off together with 3rd parties that already provide more functionality to their cumbersome software. So now the users have to persuade other companies to integrate what sony failed to do in the first place....
And as I have mentioned before - the lifelog api will not allow access to the bands functionality and thus you can not create individual notifications with the band besides the idea with the tasker plugin ....
For me I had patience waiting for sony to take a different route - but now I am letting go of the smartband and will move to a different platform. (I am sad that bodymedia is discontinued but looking for successor of that)
