- 80AVERAGE CRITIC SCORE5 ReviewsCNETNot RatedThe innovative Basis Band fitness watch (hands-on)It's relatively compact and light compared with many all-metal timepieces I've owned. I also think the habit approach to changing people's behavior has a shot at succeeding and hopefully motivating people (not just the fitness-crazed) to live a better lifestyle.Gizmodo80Basis B1 Review: The Best Activity Tracker DespitePersonally, I won't give up wearing my watch nor will I be wearing two watches anymore but the B1 is without a doubt the best activity tracker available today. (And I've tested just about all of them.) Too bad it's backordered till who knows when.PC Mag80BasisTech and fitness enthusiasts should run out and buy the $199 Basis fitness watch immediately, as it's by far the most interesting activity tracker on the market. Cautious consumers, however, should wait for version 2.0, as the hardware design could use a few tweaks.TechCrunch70The Basis B1 Fitness Band Is Amazing But Still NeeRather than making a kitchen-sink sports watch, Basis has produced a cool, streamlined monitoring device that is, for the first time in the space, eminently usable and promises some interesting potential.Popular Science90Basis Band Review: The Only Fitness Tracker WorthThe Basis is the most expensive fitness tracker I've tried, at $200, but I certainly would not recommend any of its competitors, which are often only slightly cheaper and are far, far less capable. It's a damned awesome product, and I'm going to keep wearing mine.Digital Trends80BASIS B1 REVIEWFitness freaks should probably seek out hardware more specific to their activities, but for those looking to understand and influence their daily activity at a granular level, the Basis is the best device of its kind that we’ve seen.
- 71AVERAGE USER SCORE8 ReviewsEngadget Reader20September 30, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Do you see many basis users in myfitnesspal, lose it,? There is a reason you don't, more later. The hardware had only one thing going for it, heart rate without a chest strap. Unfortunately that heart rate is inaccurate. The company truly has no interest in its customer base. The promise of insight into all details of your activity is completely held hostage. You can only view your data, you can't have it, because it is not yours to have. Every other fitness tracker I've looked at has the ability to obtain and share the data (note earlier reference to myfitnesspal), it wasn't even on my radar that this product would not give that option. For nearly 2 years they have spewed an empty promise to their user community "we care about you, we are working on it". Their forum is full of flame wars over it. They aren't. They've just released their next version. ... Don't buy it. Lastly, the fact that this is not pointed out in any of the major sites reviews is staggering.Engadget Reader90May 7, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!This health tracker is wonderful - I don't have any issue with it. However, the thickness of the device may be a little too thick for some. I wish the next generation one will get thinner and more stylish. In terms of function, it is by far the best. I had experience with Fitbit Force & Flex - both aren't very good in terms of accuracy of tracking steps.Engadget Reader90April 10, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I've used the jawbone Up, the Fitbit Force, and now the Basis B1. I find it the most accurate, the best to wear, and the software provides accurate and meaningful analysis.Engadget Reader20March 16, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Steps counter counts 2000+ less steps than fitbit one or fitbit flexHeart rate monitor: pretty accurate under home use but non functional during aerobics activity or perspiration.Sleep tracker: very impressed with sleep tracking ability of this device.Battery: have to charge every day. My device battery is getting discharged in 10-15 seconds after 45 days of normal usage.I am fitbit one user for 1+ years and I never felt such a poor battery performance. Basis offer to replace it but I am wondering if I should pay the transport charges 40-50 dollar for such awful battery of Basis band.Engadget Reader90February 12, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader90September 15, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80August 28, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best fitness tracker on the market, packs a heartrate monitor, GSR and accelerometer combined to identify activity, resting and sleeping states transparently. Addictive to keep checking your progress throughout the day.The only bad part is that the face's plastic scratches easily. I cut up a screen protector to cover the face from scratches. I would recommend any new owner to do the same.Engadget Reader90August 16, 2013Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!It is easy to find current steps, calories and HR. Determining if targets are met requires a simple sync. Next design should be water proof to eliminate the need to remove. Also battery remaining graphic is unhelpful; days of power remaining would be ideal. A reminder in the app to recharge would also be if value. I've used all health bands and this is the one worth buying.
