For the past twenty days that I’ve been using the LYCOS Life fitness band, I have found it to be awesome. I have observed some accurate Tracking results, Good comfort and Great battery life
This band has NFC capabilities and has many Internet of things features that will be added in future – With more and more IoT devices coming in we need proper security for it and a great add on functionality – which Lycos Fitness Band provides us
My Experience with the band was Excellent
I have previously used other fitness bands like, Fitbit Charge, Jawbone UP & Misfit flash; I mostly used the Fitbit Charge primarily. With regards to the Lycos band , there were few features that I hope Lycos Life could have included like (Lifting Hand or turning the Wrist to see the time , Screen Brightness under Direct sunlight )
But when i contacted the Lycos Guys and they were happy to listen to consumers feedback and said these missing features will be added soon via OTA Firmware Updates, and also there are many features that will be included which are related to Internet Of things in future
Internet of Things (IoT) is the Future and anything and everything will be controlled and managed via the Internet, and NFC and Security play a very important role in IoT, hence we can assume that this band is Future Proof
Password Manager – I used it for multiple app logins with ease
NFC Phone Unlocking
Transfer data via NFC Tags
In my opinion, this is a great gadget for young teens, who can be motivated to stay fit and monitor their daily fitness and Sleep data. The NFC tags on the band are interesting as this is novel in concept and not found in other trackers I’ve used. A great Diwali , Christmas or festival gift to begin the New Year ahead.
