Review – The August Smart Health Wristband SWB200b. #tech #health #fitness


The Smart Health Wristband came in a sturdy box with the main features clearly listed on the box. The smart health wristband was sturdy, reasonable light, comfortable on the wrist.  The battery life was listed as 15 days on the box with a variety of sites claimed 30 hours to 30 days. The contents were limited while fulfilled the requirement of use.  The wristband came with no charger cable (as not required). This design is positive in not carrying around another charger lead. The smart health wristband plugs directly into a wall charger, laptop etc with extension USB power cable if required.

The App:

The August pulse app can be easily downloaded by searching for the App of scanning the QR code. The app got a poor rating of 2.8 out of 5. This score is a fair score as the app suffers from annoying bugs/design. The app has many annoying setup features, the app requests access to make and manage phone calls, access to your contacts, send and view SMS messages, access photos, media and files on your device, take pictures and record video.

The upgraded software version deletes a personal setting, date of birth etc, previous settings. The app setup had bugs in finding the save button often not clearly visible, the time was auto set but when the app upgraded to the latest software version, this reset all personal details. The app paired easily to an android phone but often lost the pairing when returning within the range.  The year for date of birth was not available to scroll, instead this required scroll month by month to get to the year of your birth. (This was noticed on a One Plus One phone but worked ok on a Samsung S8.)

The app has many good features which are clear, Steps, Heart Rate, Blood Oxygen, Distance Travelled, and calories burnt, stopwatch function, your fatigue state, Sleep Tracker, Find Device Function (within Bluetooth range) The Heart Rate gave a daily/weekly/monthly view.  The manual does advise measurements are for reference only and are not for medical use.

Overview:

The Heart Rate / Blood Oxygen, options may not be calibrated to the medical industry but would give a trend of personal medical conditions. The wristband picked up obvious changes when out for a brisk walk or Blood pressure times of the days.   The August smart health wristband swb200b came with a single strap which was comfortable for most adults, the dual studs on the strap prevent the strap for falling off by accident. This smart health wristband was comfortable to wear.  The August marketing department require to get their act together on the battery life, (giving a consistency message of the battery life) getting over 20 days charger and still, battery left.

The August smart health wristband swb200b has featured superior to many trackers that are triple the price. The Heart Rate / Blood Oxygen / Fatigue features are great, the waterproof is a real positive on the wristband. One of my favourites is the charger of the wristband, there is no proprietary charger, simple remove the strap for the wristband and plug the unit directly into a USB charger. The August smart health wristband swb200 is not a budget device as compared to many alternatives but packs a host of features to rival some of the market leaders.
