Despite its low cost, the Life Tracker 1 doesn't feel cheap or poorly made -- Tom's Guide actually says it looks "subtly high end" and ZDNet finds it "very comfortable." In fact, ZDNet says it's "light enough that you will hardly notice it is on your wrist," even to the point where CNET was "constantly checking" to make sure they were still wearing it. However, while the Life Tracker 1 is water resistant and can stand up to a bit of rain or sweat, CNET says one of its "biggest drawbacks" is that it isn't waterproof. However, plenty of more expensive trackers aren't waterproof either.
Life Tracker 1 offers basic step, distance and sleep tracking like its competitors, but it can also track weight and hydration level manually entered through the app, though CNET says "it wasn't initially clear how to do this." After that initial speed bump, ZDNet says it's actually "one of the more attractive and functional" fitness apps they've ever used.
$12 will buy you a Life Tracker 1 and a 12-month membership to Pivotal Living -- you'll have to keep up the subscription to continue enjoying the full benefits of the tracker. But even with an ongoing subscription cost, it's still a relatively low sum when compared to rival trackers that offer free services but charge a high upfront cost for the devices. If you're the type who tends to replace their fitness tracker every one or two years, Pivotal Living is offering a great bargain for a product that has a lot to offer regardless of its price.
