Reviewing the new Runtastic 24/7 fitness tracker

Late last month Runtastic — an innovative suite of apps, products and services that track and manage health and fitness data — released their new Runtastic Orbit wearable, which is the latest and greatest in 24-hour tracking devices that allow users to monitor daily movements, fitness activities and sleep cycles.

In a nutshell, the Orbit’s similar to existing trackers such as FitBit and Jawbone Up, but it’s also got a few new bells and whistles I’m pretty excited to check out — namely that it’s waterproof (to an impressive 300 feet), syncs up with ANY of the Runtastic apps, has a proprietary sleep tracker (which I find fascinating), plus a battery life that can last up to a week.

Specifically, the Orbit tracks Steps, Active Minutes, Calories Burned, Sleep Cycles, Goals and Ambient Lighting. Other features include an OLED Display, Time & Alarm and Bluetooth Smart Technology (which means it syncs to your phone automatically; yay for no cables!).

I’ll be testing it out over the course of the next few weeks, which coincides perfectly with training and racing so I can really put it through the paces. But after just a few days in, though, I can already say I’ve been pleasantly surprised with some of the features.

Stay tuned for my full review with photos; and if you’d like more information on the Orbit in the meantime, visit the website here

    • Same here! It’s become a new ritual to hit it last thing at night & first thing in the morning – and it’s making me so much more aware of my activity level throughout the day.
