Hey all just wondering if anyone here has purchased the Sony SmartBand yet? I'm contemplating getting one but already have the Withings Pulse activity tracker and a Sony SmartWatch 2.
I'm a fan of Sony products but not sure if the SmartBand is worth getting.

For those who don't know what the SmartBand is take a look here

I saw that it's available at a local shop, so maybe I'll stop by when my salary is there and pick it up. I'd rather get a real smartwatch - feature wise- , but I really want to have a cool sleep tracker and the Samsung Gear Fit is too ugly. Please report back, if you got yours.

Ok, I've got it and so far I'm satisfied. It's comfortable to wear and steps are counted accurately. You should try the Lifelog App, before you get one for yourself, because some people might not feel comfortable with the amount of data that is logged. The thing I'm most interested in is the sleeptracker, so I'll report back in a few days, when I can confirm the smart alarm function.
So long,
Kalle

I tried out the life logger app and didn't find it useful. Not sure why I want to know how long I used the internet for or read SMS messages for, etc.
The photo logging feature might be OK but the Xperia Z Ultra camera is pretty bad so I don't take too many photos with it.
