I was really excited to get the Health box. I thought it would be good to have everything sync up. Not sure why but that never worked for me. The only thing UA Record will sync with is MyFitnessPal. Neither the heart rate band nor the UA band will Sync with MapMyRun. The Heart Rate band didn't even work. So if you want to do a run, you either have to use the UA Band (which is horrible for running, I walked a mile and it logged .44) or us MapMyRun. Then on to the scale. I got on three different times back to back and the weight went down over 4 pounds. Then my Body Fat came up at 27% but the next morning I was 19%.
Sadly very disappointing as I was very excited to not only get the health box but the Gemini Record shoes. I will be taking everything back this weekend.
So far im happy with my healthbox. Easy to set up no instructions needed straight forward.
Health box was easy to setup. Everything connected first try. UA Band, Heart Rate Monitor and Scales all connected quickly and easily. Have no issues syncing with each other. Weight and workouts are tracked and sync easily and quickly. During gym sessions, I use the band and heart rate monitor together, connection is easy and simple, works every time and later syncs to the UA record app and shows everything I need to know about my workout. Used with MyFitnessPal to track eating habits, syncs with UA record giving complete overview of daily workout trends + eating + sleeping habits. Would recommend to anyone looking to assist with losing weight or get better performance from workouts.
I was totally sold on this set-up, until I read that the wrist band and heart rate monitor are only splash and sweat proof. One of my best and favorite ways of exercising/working out is by swimming, in a pool, the lake, or the ocean (and SCUBA diving, too). It would be HUGELY beneficial if this set-up was waterproof (even if not at pressure while diving), since aquatic exercise is amazingly efficient at resistance training, too!
The instructions say to "Wear it all the time." but you can't wear it in the shower, either (which can also provide detailed cardiac feedback)!
Great product for those who wish to track there health
Well I gave the scale a go for a year now and it is just a bad performing device. Will never sync even with the app open and standing right in front of the scale. Have rest it to many times to count. Sadly I expected more from HTC. The band is good. Nothing separating it from other bands but it performs well in my use. The heart rate monitor works fine as well.
I'm a big Under Armor fan and decided to choose Health Box out of all the wearables on the market. Main reason, apart from the brand, is the really great app and the fact that it syncs with My Fitness Pal.
I've been using the Health Box for two months now and I've given up on it. While the app is great, the Heart Rate Monitor has connectivity issues. The scale is the biggest disappointment and a cause of daily frustration. The weight is always different by a pound of two if you step on the scale second or third time. And you often have to step several times because the scale has connectivity issues as well.
The UA band is ok, but it's really annoying to charge - and you have to charge it often due to below average battery life.
Again, I love Under Armor but I can't recommend this product to anyone and would like to return it after giving it the most generous try.
UA Healthbox is an all in one with steps in the right direction!
The Scales reviews are saying that it's not accurate, This is true a little I do it 3 times all will be about 2 pounds of each other with 2 of the 3 being off just by half of a pound. I believe one of the scale's update not to long ago helped with this issue.
UA band, 4 out of 5. works great, It's accurate good battery life. easy to use and sync. *Wish that it could do more and came in another color(free input from my wife).
Red and Black are my fav colors so I'm fine.
The Heart Rate monitor is great you forget you have it on it's so comfortable. Sync to the UA band and phone very easy.
Sync all the devices to the phone was easy and fast GO Android! Most of the sync issues are solved by simply turning off the Bluetooth on the phone then turning it back on. UA band put the band into airplane mode then back on. Some issues are bc we (the user) don't have the UA app on your phone on/working in the background which causes the sync issue.
*Getting the scale to connect to my Wifi and doing the updates was pain..... ended up having to doing:
Broadcasting my wifi SSID
Switch over to using 2.4GHz vs. 5GHz
let the scale update and sync a couple of times
Put my home network back to normal.
Total of maybe 30 min including updates, scale now works fine.
Over all this is a great all in one set-up! It's to help guide and assist you to your fitness goals. It gives you the information you need and places it in one location with UA App on your phone or tablet.
UA here are things I would like to ask for:
A couples' Healthbox deal. Two(2) bands, Two(2) heart monitors, and One(1) scale. This would have saved me so much trouble and maybe money.
Windows phone App and compatibility having your stuff across all Platforms is just the smartest and best way to reach everyone.
Great concept, just wish it actually worked!!!! arg The Heart Rate does not sync with phone/app
I've had my health box 3 months so I've had time to try it out. I like the band it's comfortable and seems accurate enough on the steps. I think the sleep tracker is fairly accurate also. The scale is not so accurate it fluctuates 6-7 pounds within minutes. I've always weighted myself twice to make sure I get the same number and I rarely get the same weight twice. It's quite frustrating considering the cost. I expected better accuracy. I haven't used the heart rate monitor yet. So I can't comment on it.
