You'll be sorry. - EngadgetEngadget Reader10June 2, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I figured for 12 bucks what can I lose. Well, 12 bucks, since they have a "no return" policy. Unit was hard to set up. Reset steps to 0 at will. Its will. Never could get it to sync steps on Android KitKat. Spent about two hours messing with it. Gave up. Threw it out. Also, unit requires manual time set. No big deal but not expected.Engadget Reader90May 26, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!See above comment about the screen being prone to scratching. Otherwise, I am very happy with my purchase and customer support was awesome when I send them a question!Engadget Reader100May 14, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A gadget unicorn - EngadgetEngadget Reader100May 5, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A gadget unicorn - EngadgetEngadget Reader100May 2, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!ProsAll the features of a Jawbone Up or Fitbit Flex for $12ConsOwning this device during the holiday period was rough, but they fixed everything!SummaryI was an early supporter of this start up and the naysayers are right, they had two outages during Christmas break and it took longer than we all wanted to get the app fixed. However, today the app is running great... the band is performing as expected... and I relish the fact that I can spend nine years with Pivotal Living (and get 9 brand new devices, one each year) for the price of a Jawbone Up or Fitbit. For $12 you have nothing to lose. And it is fun supporting a smaller company trying to accomplish great things!Engadget Reader90April 15, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!It appears this company has fixed it's issues with their app. I've had my band for 2 months, and really like it. I was skeptical about buying a fitness tracking because they're so expensive, but for $12, this product broke the cost barrier of getting my feet wet in this new era of wearable tech. A great value.Engadget Reader80April 12, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I bought 3 of these so my two daughters and I could track together. Super affordable solution which doesn't break the bank and if my girls lose them, I like that they can be replaced easily. Band is a little large for children's wrists and screen shows a few scratches after a few months, but well worth the price.Engadget Reader90April 8, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I was one of the earlier adopter and took a chance on the company, overall despite couple setbacks, I can say it was well worth it! I would refer my friends to buy!Engadget Reader90April 8, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Never thought one of the other $100 on the market was worth purchasing. At $12/year, I could not pass on testing it out. The band is great! Aside from a couple white scratches on the screen, it really pushed me to get active! I'm curious to see what happens after 1 year for renewal...Engadget Reader90April 6, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The best in its category. We highly recommend it. - EngadgetEngadget Reader80April 2, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!This is my first review on Engadget and the Pivotal Tracker is my first fitness tracker. I've always been curious for more insight on my daily activity and wanted an affordable product to start with. Critic reviews I've read are mostly positive and I too feel like this product rivals its more expensive competitors; I'm able to see my daily activity levels (walking, stairs, running, hiking, dancing, chores) for a fraction of the price of similar models. When it comes down to it, this is a great activity tracker for those who want a basic read on calories, steps, sleep (love this feature) and hydration or just simply need a little motivational reminder to get out of their chair.Engadget Reader100April 1, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!A gadget unicorn - EngadgetEngadget Reader80March 23, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I'll start by writing about the hardware. I've been wearing the band for about two months now and the band itself is very comfortable. I have very sensitive skin and haven't experienced any discomfort wearing it daily. The screen hardness is on the soft side and so it scratches easily, but it's not very noticeable and doesn't take away from viewing. I like that for such a low price the product includes a screen that shows steps, time, calories. It also includes features like sleep tracking, activity reminder and alarm clock. I like the idea that every year you can get a new band, as the technology gets better so should the bands. No need to spend a 100 dollars and hope to use it for 2-3 years.On the software side, there have been major improvements since I first purchased the band. I am using an Android phone and initially the app was considerably limited in functionality. That said, the last couple updates in the Play store have significantly improved the usability and performance. The graphs and layout of the app are well done. They have sliders to track hydration so it's quick to put in how much liquid you consume. The most interesting piece for me is the sleep tracking, only because I've never done it before. No more wondering how much I've turned and tumbled through the night.Overall, for the price and what you get, it's worth it.Engadget Reader80March 23, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I've been using this band for over 3 months. The product is $12/membership for the year and the band is free. That's a fantastic value either way you see it! I've considered looking at other fitness bands/watches but for the price point the Pivotal Tracker does all the basics very well (i.e. steps, calories, sleep) but it also even has Social and Teams!While I am using the iOS version of the app to do my tracking, the company has been very forthright with issues they were facing on Android. Given that this is a startup, I can imagine that it has faced some difficult challenges. I admire that the company has been very open and honest with their feedback and even offered testing communities to work with their customers through the product. Full Disclosure: I am an active participant in the iOS testing community and if you join these testing communities you get to be on the latest app build as soon as they release. I would highly recommend this for the more tech savvy Android users as well that are having trouble on the platform.Overall, I'm thoroughly happy and impressed with the product and great value. If you are in the market for an activity tracker that tracks steps, calories burned, miles, sleep, water consumption it should win you over at $12.Engadget Reader20March 3, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!The band itself seems to be ok, nothing special but decent looking sports band with medium battery life. The software however is completely non-functional. It's not just buggy, it just doesn't work. They've been promising an update to the android software for three months now (last one was jan 5) and that didn't fix anything. I sync the band, it goes into an infinite loop and just keeps going until you shut it down. Oh, and it wipes the devices memory lol.Engadget Reader10January 27, 2015Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!I love the business model for this company. $12 a year to use the app and the the band is free. Unfortunately, the band itself is useless... it resets itself on a daily basis (the company states the it is a static charge issue), it is very inaccurate in counting steps, tracks sleep poorly and the readout is tiny and difficult to read. To round things out, their customer service is abysmal, emails go unanswered and their idea of support is to watch youtube videos. Take a look at their Facebook page and read the comments. There are a lot of very unhappy customers there. Buyer beware, this product isn't ready for release yet.Engadget Reader100December 21, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!They fixed all the bugs and now I love this tracker. It is as good as my fitbit!!!Engadget Reader40December 15, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!It is a highly reviewed device and the price at $12 is great..... however I am having difficulty locating the app on the Google Play store.....
