The ultimate comparison guide for wearable tech wristbands

Today we’re launching the ultimate comparison guide for wearable technology wristbands – an at-a-glance chart showing all the major features of most popular bands on the market today.

As well as a checklist of features and functionality, we’re including a ranking for ease-of-use, as wearable tech is more than function alone … awarding points out of 10, also taking into account how easy it is to set-up the device with a smartphone or PC/Mac.

This guide will be updated on a regular basis (We’re starting off with the most-popular devices and will add more regularly but if there’s a missing product that you’d like to see included right away, get in touch! We’d also like to hear from you if you’re a whiz at tables in WordPress!).
