Striiv Smart Pedometer Bundle w/ Clip, USB Cable, Skin and More
In addition to being so big, the device was heated and warm to the touch just from charging it for 10 minutes, made me wonder it's supposed to get hot or if it was defective. I'm sending it back. I will order the Fitbit which I had for 18 months but lost. Thought I'd try the Striiv since it was cheaper so I'm disappointed that it didn't work out for me.
This is a great idea BUT A WASTE OF MONEY. I had this less than 6 months when it quit. It was gentley used by an adult. Not worth ordering
Keeps me challenged
I just got this two weeks ago and think it's a great little device. I challenge myself to walk more everyday. I do wish you could see your charts online instead of just seeing them on the device. It's really just too small for us older folks.
Was fun while it lasted, unfortunately not long...
This product was fun but worked extremely intermittently. It would frequently lock up and screen would just white out. I followed the instructions to tap to restart which worked for a short time. But today, after only 3 weeks of use, the screen just went white and nothing works to get it started again. Very sad because it was extremely fun when it worked but just too intermittent for the price so sadly will be returning it tomorrow.
Great Little Pedometer
I bought this device in January, and have been very happy with it. I was recently diagnosed with diabetes, so I knew I had to start exercising regularly. This pedometer has really come in handy for measuring my steps each day. It is very small, so it fits in my pocket easily. Also has the option to wear on a chain around my neck, which I have also done. I do not really play the game that comes with it where you build your "world". But I do participate in donating water....so I think it's great that you can give a little back while getting your exercise. So far I have had no problems with it, and I highly recommend it if you are looking to get in shape!!
what a pleasant surprise this tiny device has made in my encouragement in getting up in walking n getting my rears into motion!!! love the fact that u can walk for
amazing charities n I am no tech person n never play any kind of games on computer but I absolutely love myland!!!!!! I literally find myself getting up at 9 pm off the couch to get points to add stuff!!!!! it's crazy fun!!! the only downside I see is mine doesn't count stairs right:( calling customer service to see why...wow!! I love it!!!!!!!!!!
Don't know what I ever did without my Striiv
I have had my Striiv for over a year and I absolutely love it. I use it everyday and have donated more that 50 polio vaccines. I do something good for me and I do something good for someone else. What a great feeling! I have not had any problems with syncing my Striiv or problems with turning it on. It's always on. This is the best motivator, pedometer I ever had. Get one.
Please read reviews
I received this item, it worked just like one of the reviews I read. It worked well until I synced it with my computer. Then it shut off and never turned on again. I'm sending it back; I will update my review if the replacement works. I really hope it will- as some reviews say.
I bought one for me and for my daughter that runs. The longer we have it the more important it becomes. It is great for our own goals and fun to share either goal info or the game info. We are getting more to include more family in the fun. I am tempted to get a back up. The race function is my favorite. Pick a speed level, pick a distance
(from 250 to 2000) steps, and the opponent always goes the same speed then when you win, you gets stats of "by how many steps" with a bonus for the # of winning steps.
Same race function is available for climbing stairs, I love the Striiv. Get someone you care about to walk, you can take 250 steps in your house.
I had one of these and it was totally unreliable. It recorded steps when I hadn't moved, missed steps when I did. It was returned. A total waste of money. It was worse than other pedometers I;ve had that were a third the price.
I was a little skeptical about buying this, but I really do love it! It has fun games to play and compete with others, the computer or even yourself. If you need that extra push to get moving, this will help :)
Thought this looked like a great product
This item wouldn't always turn on. I tried the tricks that were mentioned in the previous reviews. Sometimes it worked but mostly it wouldn't turn on. I returned it.
