Some of you may recall that earlier this year I did a review on the Fitbit Flex. Just a quick recap, for those of you who don’t remember, the Fitbit Flex is a wireless activity tracker that allows the user to monitor and track all the fitness and lifestyle related metrics such as distance walked, distance ran, number of hours slept, calorie consumption, and calories burnt. It also comes with a silent wake alarm that gently vibrates to wake you at your desired time.

The Fitbit Flex is the fourth fitness band that I own. I was seeded with the Jawbone UP24 (S$249), bought the Jawbone UP (S$189.90) and Nike FuelBand (US$149 = S$190). Among the four fitness bands, the Fitbit Flex in my opinion is the best one of the lot as it offers many features, making it the most complete product of its kind. The Fitbit Flex is also extremely lightweight (13g) when compared to the Jawbone UP24 (~21g), Jawbone UP (23g) and the Nike FuelBand (32g).

There are three official Android Wear devices in the market right now, two of which are already available for sale, the Samsung Galaxy Gear Live and the LG G Watch.

The most third and most anticipated Android Wear device is the Motorola’s Moto 360 which I am guessing will be on sale next month (September 2014).

The Jawbone UP24 was released back on the 10th April 2014 in Singapore and it currently retails for S$249. It comes in three sizes (Small, Medium and Large) and available in two colors (Onyx aka Black and Persimmon aka Red).

The Jawbone UP24 is an updated model of the original Jawbone UP which is still being sold for S$189.90.
The UP24 adds in wireless syncing via Bluetooth 4.0 LE which is missing from the original UP and it still manages to maintain the same weight; 19g (Small), 22g (Medium) and 23g (Large). Having used both the UP and UP24, I totally love the addition of this feature because it eliminates the hassle of removing the band just to sync.

I have not heard of Martian Notifier before, but apparently they do have pretty nicely designed watch that incoporate analog clockface and will display notification from your phone through it’s smart notifications app.

Martian Notifier’s Smart Notifications App
Martian Notifier’s Smart Notifications App allows three unique levels of notification support: it first lets you filter the notification types you want sent to the watch, so you receive only those that are most important to you. It secondly allows customized vibration patterns for each type of alert, letting you know if you’ve just received, for example, an email, text message or news alert without even looking at your watch, let alone your phone. Finally, you can recall the most recent message with just a tap of the watch face, or scroll through multiple past notifications for a quick review.
