WARNING:

I bought this last time around, and it will NOT work with your Nexus 7 1st generation, even if you were to install cyanogenmod, which will activate the bluetooth 4.0 AND using android 4.4.4 +. This thing only works on PHONES. The app demands ALL permissions, which I absolutely felt uncomfortable with. I see no reason why this device shouldn't be designed so that it would at least work with an android device that is NOT a phone. It's collecting dust!!

--The Nexus 7 first gen has BLUETOOTH 3.0 (And no software will ever magically turn your BT 3.0 into BT 4.0). This will work with anything that meets the requirements, which in this case the Nexus 7 first gen does not.

--------

"Warm Note: All orders, laid from April 14th, will be shipped on April 30th. You will enjoy $16.99 off during the time." - TinyDeal note on page for simplified package.

Order from TinyDeal app for $14.59 for simplified packaging, no code required.

Simplified packaging shipped from US to US 3-5 day shipping is $18.50

The Android app from official App store doesn't work (can't log in). I had to download new version from here on my laptop, and send it to my phone via dropbox.

The IOS app improved quite a bit in the last release. A few weeks back this was $10.

I actually purchased the same fitness band from the same website and it is actually pretty decent, both the band and the transaction. I must stress that these are shipped straight from China, so wait about two to four weeks. I think I got mine within two weeks time but that may be a fluke because most of the time it takes about three weeks to get things from China.

In regards to the fitness band itself, for the price it isn't bad. It does a good estimation of how many steps you take in a day. I have a FitBit Flex band and I wore it on the same arm (left side) and the numbers were very close. I would say the FitBit counted like 50 - 100 steps less, give or take. I wore both devices for a week to come to that conclusion. Not very scientific but it did the job for me. To be honest, I like the MiBand better because for one, it doesn't fall off, unless I am gowning up or disrobing sterile gowns quickly (I usually rush because I am on a strict time schedule). I nearly lost my FitBit Flex and I barely had it brush up against something (scrubs). I paid "too much" money for the FitBit Flex and the band is not as secure compared MiBand. With the FitBit Flex, there is a metal connector that can be easily dislodged and it is not secured with a secondary band like you would see in a watch. The MiBand has a secondary band, albeit is it a skinny one, but it does the job.

The app for the MiBand is confusing. I tried signing up with my phone number on the mobile site but I had to go to the website (non-mobile version) and use a junk email account to sign in. After that it was smooth sailing. The FitBit Flex was easy to set up. But it was a slight learning curve for me to activate certain features of the app. The MiBand, keeps tracks of the steps you take in a day, week, month. It also keeps track the hours of sleep (both light and deep) and shows a trend of your sleep cycle over time of a week, month, etc. Unfortunately you can not link the MiBand to apps like MyFitnessPal, but you can with the FitBit Flex. In conclusion, I like the MiBand better due to the simplicity and the battery life is like freaking amazing. I misplaced the charger and I haven't charged this baby in like a month. Oh I forgot, the MiBand has this feature where you can set alarms that vibrates to wake you up. I am a light sleeper in general so this is a useful feature. It also vibrates when your phone rings, which is pretty cool since I disable the volume on my phone.

In case someone is interested, I believe the MiBand works on 4.4 KitKat but not Lollipop. Not sure if it works on iOS but you can search to see if it does and what version before you pull the trigger. I hope this helps someone.

I ordered the MiBand in March. I like the product, but it took about 4 weeks to be received.

Separately, I also ordered a new silicon band. The band only took about 2 weeks to be received.

Tells me how much I walked, slept, and deep sleep. I swim with the band - seems to function without any problems. Connects to my phone over Bluetooth.

This is a great band for the price. Compared my steps in my google app to what my band reported and it was accurate. Battery life is incredible Ive had it since late feb and only needed to recharge once. Cant seem to figure out how to export its information to google fit, or what features that would even unlocked.

Of note, to get the phone number to work when signing in to the app, you have to put +1 in front of it (+12025551212).
