@parallelwoody@stryper2000 Which application did you download? It looks like there might be two out there floating around. One works (EZFit). The other doesn’t (and I don’t recall its name). Evidently I don’t swing my arms enough like Bigfoot for this thing to track my steps accurately when I walk. It only tracks them semi-reliably when I go for a run. The sleep tracker is a bit off as well.
@parallelwoody@stryper2000 I must have really lucked out with mine. I’m using an iPhone. I haven’t worn the darned thing in over a month. The thing is a PITA to put on by myself and doesn’t accurately track activity. Says I’m lolling around on my ass for much longer than I really am.
Should have removed the batteries first as they are the only thing of value. The rest as you say, is trash. Worst app I have ever seen. I think I have a virus on my phone. Ads popping up. SUCKS.
@Stallion wow! Thank you! I thought i was the last to know. (Although I really don’t want to part with the nice ‘boob’ trophy the meh community gave me. Meh friends, I hope you always consider me the biggest boob here).
The app required to use this thing is one of the worst on the market. It actually causes your phone to work worse. Read the Play store review.
These are a scam. This isn’t “mediocre,” it’s fully deceptive and evil. Stop selling these things right now and recycle them. Best thing you can do with them. They are worth less than nothing. Do the right thing and eat these as a loss. Make as much back as you can by making a deal with a recycling plant or something.
@Dizavid I have to agree, in all honesty. I got one of these as part of a Meh bundle and decided to try it just for fun…the official app slowed my phone way down, corrupted text fields and typing, and more…I didn’t suspect the fitness tracker until about a week had passed by. The second I uninstalled the app, my phone cleared up like magic. Now, I can’t speak for ALL phones (I’m using a Samsung Galaxy S5), but now knowing I’m not the only one who had lots of issues, I’d say avoid these devices. In fact, I’d go so far as to say these problems are why Meh got them to begin with.
@PooltoyWolf Someone gave me a very nice pink and white otterbox defender with that large clip holster thing for a S5 thinking my phone was that, which it is not (mine is an S5 iphone someone gave me when they upgraded)?. If I can find where I put it would you like it for free (well except for postage as my job ended last week and I don’t have another one yet)?
@Kidsandliz That’s a very nice offer! I would hate to take it from someone who could better use it, though. I’m currently using a case I adore - the Speck Amped passive speaker amplification case, and as much as I love this phone, it’s coming due for replacement soon. It’s just getting old :C
I got these in a bundle, and I wore one of these around for a month, then went to install the app. The app is garbage. I tossed both of them. I’m surprised you have more of these after shipping pallets of them to people for fukobukuro.
So most of the people around me have these right now. I have to say the reviews on the app are pretty right on - it’s horrible. I’ve wondered if there’s some way to read it with another app.
It’s a shame because it’s a nice, small tracker with no readout, which is what I would use. Getting 900 of them a few weeks ago inspired me to start taking better care of myself. I’ve not worked out every day, but I’ve been eating better. Scale confirms I’m down a few pounds even.
@Ozzie2191 Who knows you may get 900 or more in July some time. You know, since you impressed us all on the effort you put into giving them good homes with charities (which may or may not lock the door if you come with more of these kind of things)
I would say they are overpriced by 50%, My last item purchased was those message badges they were awesome I thought I bought the 50 Watt speakers last week for $149 but a Cpl days later no record of it, I wrote to Meh and did not get a response. This was the first time I can remember emailing them I thought they cared about a customer that lays praise on them 95% of the time. Not going to lose sleep over it.
Nice try, but I made a promise. I swore I would never pay so much as a penny for these utter wastes of material. There existence is a drain on the universe, visible in their very design. You’d have to pay me to take one, even if it was just to dismantle it. And no small amount, either. I’d want a good chunk of change.
The single worst product I ever, EVER got from Woot!, Meh and Banggood.com COMBINED. And I have got some crazy bad shit from all of these. I threw these out, not even bothering to be environmentally conscious about it as I was worried the other environmentally conscious people using the electronics recycle bin at work would pick these out and waste their time trying to get them to work.
