FITBIT SENSE Fitness Smartwatch Detailed Overview and Close Look at Installed Apps
com we're, going to take a deep look at yep, the fitbit. Since what do you mean that's? Not the fitbit, since, of course it is it's just in a special housing check this out, yep. We are going to talk about all kinds of different band options today, as well. Starting with this one and a few more will show up throughout the video i'll. Give you more background on that in just a little while, but now let's put back the original bands there we go the fitbit since now comes to us from amazon. You can pick this directly up from amazon.com and please use the link we have in the show notes because that'll take you over there to this buying page and we'll get credit for uh your your purchase. It really helps us out here at the channel, especially when these things are running about 280 dollars, or so. Why would you want to spend so much on a fitness band we're about to show you we looked at this before when we did the overview of the fitbit sense and i'm going to just show it to you again on the screen, so you can get a Feel for it, it does some amazing new things we haven't seen on bands before and it does the normal things that we do expect from a band really really well, considering that it has onboard gps as well as all of the different fitness activities you got to Twist, your wrist to light it up and a variety of different watch faces which we'll go through.
We looked at all of these different things. You can turn on a night mode, which is what i do. The sleep mode makes it dim and sets it up so that when the screen goes off, it stays off. Otherwise you can actually have it set so that when it goes off it will go into an ambient screen and there's. Several different watch faces that do that. This one's really special in that it shows your last night's blood oxygen, uh average level, as well as the uh range low and high uncle ticks needs to work on his snoring a little bit because 95 is a bit low i'd like to see it up about 97 to 99. Beyond that i got a bunch of apps in here i got stock apps and i've got special apps we're, going to walk through them and show you how each of them work. The first two we want to look at are probably the most esoteric. The e d a scan and way over here, the ecg. Now i prefer actually to have these both on the front screen so i'm pressing and holding on this one and i'm gon na put it right up, oh, where you want it uh, okay, how about there? We have eda here and you see what did i just do. All you got to do is press and hold and move any icon anywhere. You want now, if that's, something new that you haven't seen before, then i got a special request for you.
Could you please share this link with your social media tinyurl.com fitbit reviews that's? How uncle ticks keeps this channel going is by your viewership and your friends. So if you learn something just now take a moment, tinyurl.com fitbit reviews it'll really really help me out. I got ta boost up my viewership folks, or we may not be here this time next year. All right there you go. Uh we've got these two to take a look at the eda scan i'm, going to show you how it works first and then we're going to talk about it. You tap it. It comes up and it says you could do a quick scan for two minutes or you can go into guided sessions from 1 to 60 minutes we're. Just gon na do a quick two minute scan and the process is simple. You take your hand, your open hand, and you calm your mind, and then you just touch the screen and keep still now, of course, i'm not going to keep still i'm going to keep talking to you about this uh eda is electrodermal activity and there's a way That you can find out all about this guys. Google has bought fitbit and there's a lot of research going on in the background. What i'm doing right now is just a very, very basic beginning when my two minutes are up i'm going to show you um a place, you can go called google.scholar.com and you can search on um the information we're talking about here and bring up all kinds of Articles that not only talk about eda data and eda sensory processes that we're getting right now by the way i'm waiting for it to vibrate yeah.
You can't see the screen when you're holding it like this, and when it does, i can reveal the today's score and, of course it will transfer to the app as well. So the electrodermal activity is used in all kinds of different ways and now it's been implemented in a smart watch. Okay, we are done, it was vibrating all done. I hit the check mark. It ran down to zero. That was the time thanks for taking the time you bet. Thank you guys too. I could hit log it and i could uh reflect on how i feel i'll just skip, that that would be calm all the way up to heavy duty, stress and um. It says way to go. I got two out of five days scanned my eda responses. 21. Total start four, six, six, five that's the two minute and that's. How many changes in the dermal vibration and i think the lower the better uh you can learn more about it. My heart rate went from 94.. I get a little worked up doing these reviews down to 82. uh. I can learn more on that and then there's heart rate variability, my baseline, that it's determined as 61. and during this sec session it was 18 now, typically heart rate variability, the bigger the number, the better you want, actually there to be more change between your heartbeats Than them to be regular, i know sounds odd, but you're more stressed. If your uh hrv heart rate variability is low, we hopefully are going to be doing a whole lot more discussion about heart rate variability later reflection is where i would have put in uh stress.
Not big stress, but a little stress and again i get a chance to log it right here. Helpful tip check in with your body heart and mind, does anything feel different and you can open uh, fitbit mobile, app to learn more right there or hit done to get out of this so i'm going to go in and log. It second opportunity to do that. There, it goes and i'm going to say stress, not very stressed, but it's a little stressful right now and there's everything and say done now when we get to the app and that'll be in another review, it's taking a little while to respond to me, um we'll Go through the data that we just accumulated there by the way in that upcoming review, we're going to be covering uh the data that you collect, free and, as you know, these guys have got a premium program. We'Re going to later sign up for the premium and see what additional data you're going to get there. So you can decide whether or not after your six month, free trial. You want to spend 10 bucks a month for the additional data. Okay, that folks was the eda scan now let's talk about ecg gon na be a long long journey today, uh, but this is what you're gon na find here that you're not gon na find anywhere else. I really honest to goodness i'm going deep with you. Let'S start before we actually do it to look at the watch.
The watch has a very wet and dirty back to it, but this is a metal plate. Okay, that's one lead the uh, the body itself has two metal plates. You see the separation right there and right there there's a metal plate there and a metal plate there. Now that makes three, but one of these is a ground, the other one's positive and the other one's a negative, and that makes it a single lead, ecg device. We'Re going to put it back on and we're going to do an ecg now the sad news on this is you're not going to be able to see the results, you'll kind of see the ecg behind your fingers and stuff as you'll, see in a moment. But when it's all said and done when you go to the app there's no place to actually see the ecg, you have to go into an export function to send it to your doctor or yourself, which is what i did send it by email to me. So i'll show you a copy of that here in a second i'm, going to tap ecg it's coming up it's, saying to put my index fingers right here on the opposite corners. Now, if i had it on my right hand, it would say, use the other two corners that's, pretty cool. It knows well, once you say which which arm you're on it. It knows which corners you need to touch it's only 30 seconds, and you see the beating heart, icon or thing going on in the background there.
If i wiggle it, it messed it up. You saw that now comes back blue. It knows when it's not solid and knows when you've been bad and knows when to feel been good and it's going to get you a good ecg reading when it gets down to zero. It says data has been collected, analyzing it and from here it will tell you one or two things: either you have normal sinus rhythm or you don't, and if you do it says still, if you're not feeling well, you should deal with that and it cannot detect Things like heart, attacks, blood clots, stroke or other things, it's a a pumping issue like afib or atrial: oh what's, it called uh, not fibrillation, uh it's, a metronome kind of thing, where it's beating really really fast anyway, i'm, not a doctor, obviously, by the way when It goes to sleep if you have it set up for that. It'Ll just show you the time you flip it it'll come back. You can learn more by hitting that or you can hit done. Okay, ecg scan ecg and eda scan and now the technical stuff, but first a reminder: please share with your friends, tinyurl.com fitbit reviews it'll, take you to a folder that's got all of the reviews. I'Ll be doing on fitbit watches, starting with this one, and we already have two. This is the third going up so back to the eda. I mentioned that we could get into uh detailed information if you go to uh google dot, um scholar.
google.com. This is a screenshot of my of my computer page when i go there. Just look at some of the titles that come up we're talking about analyzing eda for psychological experiments, techniques for parapsychological purposes, electromagnetic electrodermal activity, data measuring consumer emotions. Can you see already that this is just the beginning of what could potentially be huge? Imagine that you'd be able to just touch your watch and gain access to all kinds of things, including construction workers perceived wrist on the job yeah. So i clicked on the first one and i brought up this and it's an overall. You can freeze frame this if you can't, read it fast enough or just stop your youtube and read it right. There it's it's a good description overall about what electrodermal activity is about and, of course, now that we have google, with their billions of dollars, teamed up and overseeing and funding fitbit with all of their research and development. This is going to go far yeah so that's that one and then the ecg remember, i told you there were three leads, one of which is a ground and then the others are positive and negative. That makes google.scholar.google.com a search for single lead. Ecg produce results like this. Now you should get the same things or similar uh when you uh look for this and on some of my earlier videos when we first encountered these ecg readings on watches, i listed a couple of really good documents and some videos that explained how it's done you Don'T need a 5 or 13 or 500 lead uh hookup to get a basic ecg.
You can't read everything and a lot of it is kind of crude, but it can detect things like irregular heartbeat, which is what's starting just starting to show up in these watches. Okay, those are the first two of the apps we want to cover now. Let'S run through the others assistant is either the google assistant by the icon. You can see there or alexa if you set alexa up in the app as your assistant, one or the other, but not both when you tap today, you get into a i'm off screen because it preps it with your name and everything and i'm in my actual Account here now that's at the top you get into a synopsis of what you've got today. These are my step count: heart rate, calories, burn floors, walk distance, traveled, there's, a thing called activity zones. I got six out of 22. i've done two out of five days. Exercise we just saw that, and each of these you can go deeper into like last night's. Sleep time gives me awake rim light deep, all kinds of goodies. There we've got hourly uh activity and every hour you're supposed to walk 250 steps and at 10 minutes before the hour, it'll tell you how many steps you got to do: minstrel health, which you can set up if you're a female or, if you're, a guy with A partner you can put her data in there and kind of know when to bring home flowers that kind of stuff.
You can log your your core body temperature, which then will tie into the deviation in temperature that the uh the app will collect, based on nightly readings of your overall temperature. So the today is really really powerful and that's. The four things on this page ready for a break let's change bands. I want to show you how easy this is. We just simply press out. It comes press out, it comes so which one you want wan na. Do something playful: okay, straps co? Is the company bringing us these various straps that we're gon na play with here i'll tell you how you can get them in just a minute and they're one of our sponsors, so every little bit helps if you like, a band uh we're going to give you A link that you can go in and pick it up and that again will help us out here. So the top is always the one facing this now look at this there's, a special little adapter on here that will adapt to this watch and offer a quick release. So once you buy one of these that has the adapter on it, you can immediately take this off and and change it for any band that will fit, so the top is always going to be facing the buckle you want to flip it over. You want to flip the band over, so you see the quick release tab here. You slide it in and it immediately locks in do the same thing with this one make sure the quick release is facing up and it's upside down boom in done simple slap it on, tighten it up to your preference, and you want it to be a little Bit loose but not too loose.
This is very pliable, very comfortable, really good for sports and activity and uh sharp look at that. So where do you get these? I know i know you're wanting to know. Straps co has all kinds of bands for all kinds of watches: basic watches, fitbit apple garmin, you name it general purpose and in the fitbit bands, they've got them for the sense, the verses i mean just about all of them there. So when you go in and look at the fit bit since, which is what we're reviewing they've got different categories: rubber, metal, leather and more in all kinds of colors, all kinds of sizes and they're available through straps, co, it's, a strapsco and asari – are the brands That they use and if you'll use this link, tinyurl.com co that'll, take you over get you right in the front door. Mr tix 10 gets you a 10 percent discount off of your purchase and if you buy two you get one free and that promo applies as well, so that's how you pick up. One of these cool bands that you're going to be seeing today so let's move on to the next set of apps. Okay, one last thing on the ecg. Remember i told you that it produces a chart in the app, and i wanted to show you a copy of it's, a one page chart like this. It actually has your name, your birthday, information and height and weight. Maybe all that kind of stuff is in here.
It shows you your average heart rate over the 30 seconds of the ecg, the report on whether it's, normal or abnormal sinus rhythm – and here is the actual ecg chart and what's really cool about this. One is it's marked off in seconds. So if you have an issue or you're studying, for example, a heart rate, variability here's, a great example: look how wide that is how narrow that is, how average that is! Those are similar. This represents a large heart rate variability, because the differences are big if they were all identical, that's low heart rate variability and tends to mean you're more stressed, so the more relaxed you are, the more it's going to look kind of like this and you've got exact. Second marks with the deviation marked here or the divisions, and you can add up the number of squares and figure it out really really cool, gives you your 30 second ecg, and even if it messed up along the way, it seems to self repair and throw out All the garbage so that you, your doctor, your health provider, your meditation physicist, can give you a reading on uh what this may mean for and to you here's the specifications about how it works and some more information down at the bottom. So you don't see this in the app at least not yet, but you do see a way of exporting this to pdf, sending it to yourself saving it to your phone, whatever you like to do, and of course, it's dated and timed, so you can have separate Ones as well really really fun that's, the ecg part that we looked at right there all right now we move into exercise, settings, alarms and timers.
These are really simple: uh set a new alarm, we simply tap new alarm. We set the time we want let's make it 1 10 pm, so we can hear it tap here we come over. We can turn it on there's. The time and smart wake will wake you up during your sleep at the appropriate time, so that you're not uh jarred in your awakening uh. I don't want to do that, of course, because we're wide awake right now, every day sundays through saturdays done, we just want to do one of them. Oh, i had one set already for 108 and there's 110 and the current time is 107., so we may have two alarms go off so that's. The alarms and we'll see what happens when it hits there. Look at that, my heart rate's. 101 right now. I am pumping on this review. We also have timer, so you can up it just it's alarming right now, 107 pm, it says, look alive. I did not make a sound now remember. This thing does have sound capability because you can make phone calls or receive phone calls on it and uh i'm. Interesting that you didn't have an alarm sound, but that might be something you can you can change elsewhere. We can have a countdown timer. We can have a stopwatch, we can add timers to it. Let'S do the start, watch and hit start and okay there's the 108 pm alarm going off.
I was trying to figure it out off camera before i showed you guys on camera, and i didn't know that it actually set them. So we got a lot of different things, we're still waiting for 110 to happen in two more minutes um. This is kind of a lame stop watch, it doesn't have a split times, it doesn't look like and it just has a reset button, but it does stay on there and we have a countdown timer. I can add a countdown timer of three minutes and that has started as well, so we've got a countdown timer and a count up stopwatch happening and an alarm ready to go off in a little bit while that's happening in the background. Let'S look at exercise. You come in you've got your two most recent things you've been doing, which for me is just a basic workout that i'm, after my heart rate versus time versus calories, burned that kind of thing. And then you have other things like a walk that you can put in. All of these are different ones, that you've got now things like biking and walking, and whatnot uh involve gps and so it's going to connect to gps. If you're indoors, it takes a while, if you're outdoors, it's pretty quick times out as usual, and when you're ready to go, you can just hit go. But if you want to set some other things like start with a goal, you can have heart rate notifications on when you're exceeding a certain heart rate.
If you're doing laps, you can do that manual. Auto count, you can uh show different uh stats, uh! Oh it just vibrated, you can have distance uh, you know what you what you want for your top middle and bottom to be displayed on the screen. You can change those. You can show the gps on here. All these things always on display back to the top, and then we come down and then we're there to start a bike, and you see gps is connected that's. What that vibration was about. So you have boot camp too, which you have to read up on that one and circuit training. Elliptical golf is in here hiking there's interval, workouts folks. A lot of folks are really wanting to set up intervals, not going to go into a lot of deep detail on that, not on this video, but you can set that all up. You can do kickboxing and martial arts with this watch, pilates a basic run, spinning they're, all alphabetical you've got a stair climber swimming now, because this is waterproof, gives you uh again pooling things laps, whether you want it manual or auto. What you want to see on your display always on display, if you want it all of that's available and, of course, that'll use up your battery. If you do that, tennis treadmills weight, even yoga back to the top, takes us to our two most common ones. You can pick one of those if you want to and and later you'll find you can, you can put one of them or all four if you have four different ones in the button here so watch this come back to me.
I want to be back at my time i just press and i'm back at my time, i'm going to double tap boom boom, and i have this set so that if i tap this button, it immediately starts a walk. It doesn't just take me to the walk, and then i have to do do do do to start. It starts it. So a double tap and i select that one and i'll go right into a walk. Here'S maps here's my um google thing and here's payments, which you still have yet to set up, but you can put any four apps that you want to on there. Time is up and that must have been the 10 minute or ten after uh alarm that we set, or it was the countdown time. I think that was the countdown timer, because the 10 minute one 110 already went by uh and that's all of the exercise, portions and then finally, in settings on this particular tab. This is where you have lots of control over things. You have maximum normal and dim. You have three different levels of brightness: you have your screen: wake capability button only or twist your wrist to light it up, and you have a timeout that you can have how long it'll stay on before it goes into the always on display and for me, i'm Going to raise that puppy now because we're in this review up to 60 seconds so it's not going to be timing out on me all the time you have the always on display capability that you can turn on or off and again when you go to bed At night, as you saw at the beginning of the review, you could tap that one button and it'll automatically turn that off for the duration that you have it that way and when it is off, you can have either an analog or digital uh screen shown in The uh in the screen, in that always on uh mode, all right, we'll switch it back to analog.
Take a look at that now, after display, we get into vibration and audio. This is how much it's going to vibrate on you light or strong. I, like the strong, you have a microphone that has to be enabled, of course, for calls, and things like that, your overall bluetooth, that you can connect wireless speakers or headphones to listen to the music stored on this watch now that's an interesting thing because we're not Sure about music stored on the watch. There were some bloatware apps that are on here. I call that because remember from the phone era, where they put a bunch of apps, you don't need or want on there they have spotify and pandora and deezer. I don't know. Maybe a couple of others that are music streaming, apps that you could tie in with the watch and as long as you're connected to the internet, you could stream that connect your earbuds to the watch through bluetooth and play your music that way, but i don't know About music stored on the watch, if anybody knows about that and how you get it on there put it in the show notes, i haven't figured that one out yet no device uh saved. That would be for the bluetooth earbuds. I think, and then you can manage your devices, which is where you set, that up music control and on wrist calls allow watch to control the music playing on your phone. You can do that or take calls if your phone is in range now that gives us the bluetooth calling with this watch it's kind of a misnomer, it's bluetooth, communicating you see as far as i know, and maybe it'll be updated.
There'S, no phone book, there's, no dialer and there's no way to call out from the watch to your phone and out like a normal bluetooth calling process would work. However, if a call comes into your phone – and you have it all set up for that – you can answer with this watch and you can speak into the microphone and hear it from the speaker or the earbuds that are set up with the watch so it's great. For answering incoming calls and playing music that's on your phone streaming through your watch or through your earbuds. If you decide to pair your buds to your watch instead of your phone, you could do either way if you're doing that kind of playback anyway. That capability is here since controls uh, you must go to your phone's bluetooth. Setting and pairing for synth controls, see instructions so that's. Another whole area too we're going not completely through everything here, but quite a bit, but check that out in terms of sense controls. Maybe that's a chest strap for a heart rate: i'm, not sure goal. Uh reminders is where you set this stuff here, you can set active goal, uh active zone minutes. If you want to to get reminders of your progress towards your weekly goal, you have quiet modes for, do not disturb there's, a focus mode that mutes notifications and calls during an exercise session. If you have that turned on they won't come in, you have your overall.
Do not disturb that mutes notifications and calls when that is turned on, but if you really want to be able to receive emergency calls, you leave that off vibration from alarms won't be affected. By that, then, you have the sleep mode which mutes notification calls and uh. It won't disturb your sleep and you could have that turned on as well. Otherwise, when you're in sleep mode it's going to dim the screen, it's going to make sure it doesn't turn on when you twist your wrist, but calls and notification could still pop through. I don't want that so i'm, going to turn that one on didn't even get to that part. Yet vibration from a lot. Oh, no, that turns it on immediately notice how the screen went really dim really fast, all right, i guess that's independent. If you want to turn it on there and you can do a schedule mode for vibrating alarms that won't affect you, if you want to set that up for specific windows of time we have shortcuts. These are the things that i was talking about. You can set it up to press and hold and it'll do something whatever you decide you want to set in that particular button, and you have the one that i've set for that is called gps. Speed i'll be reviewing that when we talk about specialized apps and then you have the double press thing and you can turn that on and select four different apps and where you want them for um.
The double tap thing that will activate them and remember: i set walk to be my top left and it goes immediately into the walking thing we do have nfc and capability for fitbit pay in this watch. If you have that set up, you could uh, you know, pay right at a terminal with this watch really sophisticated watch, so that's shortcuts. You have either google voice assistant or you can switch it to uh. The alexa and i don't see that switch here i'm using google assistant, but it's supposed to be able to do alexa as well wow. Every time i touch it, it takes it a while to come on i'm, not going to touch it anymore. There it toggled over okay, so the voice assistant is set up for google assistant, but somehow there's a way you can get alexa on. Here too, i think maybe you have to have it on your phone and be tethered to your phone for it to sense that and about sense. This gives you the device information, your mac address and stuff regulatory factory reset and erase everything if you're gon na you know, give this away or sell it or something like that and then shut down the watch completely, and that folks is everything that's in the settings. We'Ve covered all four of these. I think it's time for a band change, dare how's that a nice leather band looks really cool yeah. Where do you get these once again, it's from strapsco, and we have a direct link called tinyurl.
com go go in that way and any of these that you'd like to purchase, make sure you put in the code, mr tix10 you'll get 10 off. If you pick up two of them, you'll get one free and i still got another band to show you, so you might end up actually doing that and one more time. Please share this with tinyurl.com fitbit reviews. If you're learning things today, okay, we were at this screen and now we come over one more screen. I got weather a relaxation thing agenda and wallet now i'll tell you right off we're not going to cover these two today, because it takes special setup for agenda and, of course, wallet. You got ta, set up credit cards and all that so hopefully we'll do those in the future, but i can show you weather and relaxation. The relax is easy enough. It'S, a simple little guided, breathing thing: you can edit this. If you want to and change the duration turn off vibration, if you want to and basically hit start and guide your breath up and down up and down it's different than the cup your hand, two minutes. Okay, so you're getting a whole different type of an effect. But it is another aspect of mindfulness in terms of wellness now in weather, when i go in here, you get the weather in your area, which is listed across the top just above here and, of course, temperature and centigrade or fahrenheit, whichever you want your chance of Participation, your s, participate, precipitation people learn english from this channel, so i got to make sure participation is what you're doing with me right now and watching this review.
Participation is the little droplets. You see me spitting everywhere, they're two different things: 25 percent chance i'll spit on the screen, here's here's, the forecast for the next few days, partly showery or whatever uh you can tell from the temperature range that i live in a very nice warm place. A tropical rainforest actually and that's it for weather, okay, just one more page and then one more band to show you stick with me. Gang we've done this. We will do these two over here i've got clocks. I got coach and i got find my phone when i tap this one and i hit the find phone. You hear that that's way across the room so uh that works uh. When i hit coach, i go into a few videos now there's. Actually, a fitbit coach app, at least for android, that you can download, and i presume you can go in just showing three of them here, but you can watch different coaching videos. You may get more with premium, not sure it doesn't ask you for that here. On the the screen, but it might, when you do it in the app um iss tracker, is something completely different: that's a separate, app that's one of the 10 or so that i'm going to be highlighting in another video of my favorite free apps. You don't have to pay for any of the ones i'm about to show you they're awesome, but the last of the stock apps is clocks, and these are your watch faces and you have a selection of five.
I believe that you can actually put on the watch and then, of course, from the app you can download any of the ones that are listed there and replace any of these basic five. So, just to show you this is uh the one that we've been using here all along and it's got all kinds of good things on it. Your step count the seconds counting out the time, the date heart rate, blood oxygen. All those things come back over here to clocks i'm, going to switch you to another one and show you that this is their special blood oxygen uh face that they made specifically for this watch. It will get your heart rate and you can literally change these screens step count uh. This is your goal for your special number of uh step, not steps, but the category that they've got and here's your last night's blood oxygen stuff with time and date, and things like that on it it's calculating all of that, but that's what you get on. This watch face definitely fitness focus, especially if you're going to be monitoring your blood oxygen. As i understand it, this is not live blood oxygen readings right now. This is last night's blood, oxygen average, so it's not as good as a watch that could really read and monitor your current blood oxygen. To tell you, if you're over exercising or something like that, i really would prefer to see that, but at least you're getting a reading and the watch is producing blood oxygen results.
Then we have a nice analog watch with a uh, a minute indicator in the middle, and i really like this because when i glance at a watch i generally know what hour it is, but i'm, not too sure about the minute so it's 48 past. What two? Okay, it's almost three that's in here um and that's, a fun one as well. If i press and hold on here, nothing happens, so you can't change clock faces by just simply pressing and holding, but you can through the clocks out and a couple more here. This one's fun. I like this one it's in text form it was 348 right, but this tells you it's about 10 to 3, and you got all your other information down here. Eighty percent percent power it's a little bit off the screen because it was made for a versa watch rather than this one and this one's a little bit scaling differently. They need to update it. I guess to get it all to fit, but it does work pretty good and let's. Just do one more and then we'll be out of here: um that's, the talking one there's the blood oxygen and that one this is pretty um. Okay, this is the one we've been using before let's show you that one. This shows you that you can actually have animated graphics in a watch as well. If you look carefully you'll see that center snowflake thing is going through a an animation, it snaps and then starts over it's not been seamed together very well.
They could have done a better job, but you do have animated gif kind of activity that you can put together on a watch all right. I got one more band to show you today and then we're going to wrap this whole thing up. Oops, i haven't walked enough in this hour i'm supposed to do 142 steps. But you know what i'm going to contribute, those to you guys and just sit on my ah on my um yeah, the back part of my body and continue with this review, because at 10 minutes two they give you that notice about how many steps you need To go to meet your quota, this is a beautiful metal band from straps co. It'S got a great release mechanism like this, and really easy to adjust this section up and back by lifting that and moving it to fit your specific arm and, of course, it's. Super simple to put on: we just simply release the old one here and here we take this one and i always get it backwards, which one goes on top i'm gon na i'm gon na guess this one. This way, i may have it backwards and if i do it's okay, we just do it the different direction. There we go and now it's on. Oh look. It switched to a different, oh no that's, the ambient one right. This is what it goes to. If a watch face, doesn't have its own ambient mode and you have the always time turned on that's the uh analog version of it.
We set that earlier in the settings and if i activate it, we come back here. So i pop this open. I slide my hand through and of course you just adjust it to you and there we go there. We go sweet huh again. I already showed you i'll. Tell you one more time: tinyurl.com slash, straps co with an s straps co. Take a look at all of these, so we've been through the various apps in here all the way up to uh the stock ones, there's a few stock ones, i've moved off of here because i'm, not using them starbucks a bloatware. In my you know, i mean if you use it that's great, but if you don't it's just been put on there, they've made a little money from starbucks which has helped get your costs down by letting them put that on there, uh stratify, strat, uh, pandora, uh Or whatever the streaming apps, you know you've seen those before they're all on on here too, but the nice thing is, you can delete them from within the app and put your own apps on here. If you want and like i said, i will be showing you more apps, i have a couple of more pages of some of my favorite ones coming up soon, that's about it gang one more time. For those of you still with me, the watch itself it's the fitbit. Since you can pick this up through amazon.
We appreciate, if you use the link in the show notes head over there to pick this up and uh about 280 dollars. It oscillates a little bit but it's, basically, whatever price it is at amazon it's, the same everywhere, they're really tight on controlling cost. But if you use the link i'm giving you it does give me some credit on that and that helps keep this channel going. So that's to get the basic watch to watch the reviews on this just come on over to tinyurl.com fitbit reviews.

Gang and we'll see you real soon we're going to go over the app next. I mean in detail of all the free stuff you get before you join the program for the the premium. I want to wrap up one loose end, i wasn't sure about and that's whether you could put your own music on this watch for playing offline. Since you can bluetooth tether earbuds to it, it turns out answered directly from a fitbit moderator on the sense. You cannot do that. However, if you want to pay for a subscription to either deezer or pandora, those services will allow you to download music and store it to the watch, and then you can play it back without needing your phone or an internet connection, not true with spotify you'll still Need to have your phone with you or somehow be in an uh in a wi fi zone when you're exercising somehow connected to the internet to stream spotify. But you can download music from deezer or pandora. So if you have subscriptions to those you're good to go, but if you're hoping to put your own music on your own watch and listen to it through your bluetooth headset, not it not going to be able to do it. When you go into your system setup, you notice that you have two and a half gigabytes of available storage on the watch, but you can't get to it. Unless you go through deezer or pandora that's.
The way it is hopefully that'll be updated in the future, especially if you guys want access to your own music.
