    Thanks for this breakdown and the honest review. I was wondering about this device and I honestly thought it was only for iPhones. That is something I don’t currently have. Knowing it is for Android as well means I can get one! I work in an office all day so being able to track my sitting to make sure I am not doing it too much will be a HUGE help. I tried using an alarm on my phone but it doesn’t always work. The only downside is the battery for me but I can likely just charge it at work. I would imagine I can do the same in the car. Here is to a healthy 2017!!
