I’m currently considering buying a wearable activity tracker. I’ve tried to download their associated apps and fiddle with them before committing to a purchase, only to realise that there may be compatibility issues.
For example, the Gamin Connect app tells me that vivosmart HR requires Bluetooth Smart to sync, and that my Android device and/or operating system does not support Bluetooth Smart.
Up, the app for Jawbone activity trackers, alerts me that some Jawbone wristbands require BLE, which is not supported by my device; I can’t even install their second, Smart Coach app as I get the message “Your device isn’t compatible with this version”.
I have succeeded in downloading the Fitbit app, but I can’t go any further with it because I don’t actually have the wristband. Any experiences with this?
I also had my eyes on the Polar A360, but again I get the message that my device is not compatible with their apps Polar Beat and Polar Flow.
Has anyone here used any of these activity trackers and managed to sync with their Fairphone 1?
