FourFit Health Band {Review}

Since becoming a parent I've always put my needs last, even when it comes to my own health. I was much more aware during and after my pregnancy with Scarlet about the need to be more healthy. With that in mind I was excited when FourFit got in touch with me.

FourFit have a range of fitness trackers along with their own Health Band which I''ve been using. They want to bring the latest technology in their health and fitness tracking to help us to be healthier. FourFit are bringing the technology to the world at the best price without us having to compromise on quality.

I've been giving the FourFit Health Band a good test over the last couple of weeks. When it first arrived the very first step was to give the Health Band a charge. It comes with the USB charger that has three small prongs that slot into the back of the Health Band while the band is kept in place with a soft back clip. It didn't take long to charge up at all.
I've found that the charge holds pretty well. I can get 3-4 days of use out of each full charge! Just what I need from a health band since I would probably forget to put it back on if it needed charged every day.

The FourFit Health Band is more than just a fitness watch. It does have the much needed clock face when first touched but it also tracks your steps using an algorithm which will look for your movement patterns. I found this tracking was actually much better suited for me since most of the time that I am walking I will have a pushchair. It means that my activity is still tracked despite my arms not moving in a typical way. As with the other FourFit devices you can also track your heart rate but the Health Band also tracks so much more. Your able to keep track of your blood pressure and oxygen levels too.

The Health Band from FourFit will keep track of your daily steps and your sleep while all the other measurements are stored in the memory. You are able to see all the measurements through the app which works with both Android and IOS systems so it's perfect for most users. The app keeps track with your own account which can connect to the Health Band through Bluetooth. On the app your able to see usage for hours, days and weeks for each metric the Health Band from FourFit records. You can see just how easy to read they are in the screenshots above. 

You do need to use the app to activate a workout or cardio such as running but since it's not a feature that everyone will use. I have yet to use this feature but then I also don't run. There is also a feature where you can take a selfie through the app by shaking your arm. I did use this with the children however I can see ow it would be great for those who do run or workout and would have the app open. The Health Band from FourFit doesn't have a camera but the shaking movement can activate the front facing camera on your phone.

The final feature I want to talk about has been the most valuable for me. All the FourFit devices track sleep. I know I don't get much sleep on a nightly basis with Scarlet still waking several times through the night and Dylan can join us on occasion too. I was surprised by just how little sleep I was actually getting. Over the last several weeks I have had on average 3-4 hours of sleep a night. Now there was a good few nights when I managed a full 7 hours and Scarlet slept through! The Health Band is able to track both light and deep sleep. I think this has been my favourite feature as it's made me more conscious of trying to get a better sleep over getting more sleep.

I've found the FourFit Health Band to be a fantastic tool to help me be more aware and start to adjust my activity and lifestyle. I would definitely recommend the Health Band to other parents who don't really get time for a lot of fitness but want help to track and make better choices for a healthier lifestyle. I think the FourFit Health Band will make a great Christmas gift too. 

You can purchase a FourFit Health Band for just £49
