Does almost everything without worrying about a battery
I have had the opportunity to use three fitness bands Jawbone Up, Fitbit Flex and the Garmin Vivo. All of these bands are top notch and have thier own respective features but also limitations.
Jawbone: Loved the long battery life but lost it playing catch with my nephew because it flew off. Loved the app and the battery.
FitBit: This was handed over to my GF as she loved all of the colors of the bands. Work as advertised but i travel alot and battery only lasted 6 days max. Did not want to lug

another charger and often would go dead on trips. Must make this clear the battery lasted more than advertised and worked fine, just did not fit my lifestyle. Great band and could actually feel the alarm to wake me up.
VIVO: So far I am in love. easy to sync up and i can use other Garmin products i have. Best seller is battery lasts a year which is perfect for my active life with lots of travel, and camping, etc. App is ok not a cool as the up but i can pair with a heart rate band i have had for a few years from garmin. I trust the garmin band have a hand held GPS, heart rate band , E collar and now the VIVO.
Also seems not to pick up small movements when typing on a keyboard or clapping or writing. Seems like a more "gooder" sensor :).
All three i would recommend but in love with the 1 year battery, overall fucntion. What this band app does not do (garmin connect) i use the LIVESTRONG MY PLATE app to track my food intake.
It is sold out.... must be a good sign! I would buy ASAP
