App shows your steps, how much distance you had traveled, your calories brunt, if you dont want to use app then you can use device’s button too see different modes and results. Device wont be able to give details about your activities which you had done throughout the day, but app will. You can set up silent alarm using app, yes silent alarm which vibrates to wake you up, for this to work you have to wear it while sleeping, I had personally tested it and found it very effective. App has an feature of reminder, first i thought device will vibrate or something like that but nothing happened like that instead reminder is shown in my device.
iHealth Wireless Activity and Sleep Tracker can also track your sleeping activities, as this device doesn’t has any heart rate monitor so its purely based on your sleeping moments, it tells how soon you went to sleep, when you wake up, whats your regular and deep sleep. The idea behind this is that you know your sleeping habits.
