At first look, the Runtastic Orbit may sound like a glorified pedometer. Yes it does tracks steps, distance covered but it also displays time, tracks sleep, calories burned and syncs with Runtastic Apps to convert data into easily readable graphs. It’s an interesting wearable device for fitness enthusiast. I tried the Runtastic Orbit for at least a month to see if it does help me be more aware of my fitness goals and daily activity.
The Runtastic Orbit
In the box, the Runtastic Orbit comes with two wristbands (blue and black), a black clip, USB charger with contact interface and manuals. The actual Orbit is a small 2-inch electronic device with a small OLED screen atop a silver button which cycles the mode. There’s also a small protruding dot on top which is a light sensor. It’s pretty big for a wristband really and I decided to wear it on the wrist opposite my watch. The band feels securely locked and doesn’t have a problem on getting loose. The Orbit is also waterproof so people can take it on swims or rainy runs.
