MOVband is an affordable fitness device that keeps track of your movement.
The MOVband is an affordable fitness device that tracks not just your steps but your movement. It is a wrist-worn activity monitor that includes the MOVband Device, MOVband Wristband(one size fits most) and a Charging Cord for the price of $30. They also have additional wristbands in a variety of colors for $5 each. I received the MOVband package with two other bands for review purposes. The first thing I did following receipt of the MOVband was to create an account.
Then I charged the device. To charge the device you plug in the USB cable to a computer then plug the device into the cable. It only takes about 3-4 hours to charge. Once the device is charged, I snapped the device into the wristband and started moving.
Snap into place
The device display shows the time, moves and miles; you just press the bottom button on the device to see the different settings. The display screen is LCD and lights up when the top button on the device is pushed.
One of the benefits about MOVband is you can create a group or your own with friends and coworkers and have your own MOVchallenge It is a fun and simple program that helps people get motivated to move.
I was pretty excited to have the opportunity to review the MOVband. I had a particularly severe surgery at the end of January and had been unable to do much activity. I had become extremely sedentary while I healed. I got the “go ahead” from the doctor to start walking on a treadmill, During that time I received the MOVband. I changed the recommended move setting to something lower since I was starting out slow. Then I started my challenge; it was a very slow start nothing impressive by any means. I started walking slowly on the treadmill for 45 minutes. I didn’t pay any attention to my moves the first day on the treadmill, but I wore the MOVband all day and did not have many moves. The next day I paid attention to my count on the treadmill.
Here is the drawback to the MOVband, because I wasn’t moving my arms it did not count my steps. I had to hold on to the treadmill as I walked. As I have progressed, I don’t hold on to the treadmill the entire time I am on it now but have noticed I lose a mile every day because it doesn’t track that movement. I think the MOVband would be an ideal product for someone that just wants to track their movements or to increase motivation but not necessarily perfect for someone who holds onto the treadmill.
Tracking my moves:
I do wear it on days that I don’t use the treadmill to try to stay on track with movement, which it is beneficial for that. It is also remarkably affordable which is another notable benefit about the MOVband. I also genuinely like the fact that you can join groups for social interaction and motivation. I also think it would be beneficial for children to keep them motivated and to move. If you would like to learn more about MOVband, please, visit the website.
