At first, I liked the reserved black color of the wristband but after a while I felt the blue was more stylish. Other wristband colors are available but sold separately. The Orbit device slips into these wristbands and clip securely with appropriate slots for the button, screen and light sensor.

Use and Function

The Runtastic Orbit is a 24-hour wearable tracking device with only a single button interface to rotate around its modes. There’s the time, steps counter, distance, active minutes and calories burned. A long press will activate the sleep mode and another long press to deactivate. The Sleep Mode utilizes the light sensor which is an interesting concept and also slight movements while in the sleep mode. There’s the sleep efficiency graph which compares deep vs light sleep. On how accurate this is I’m not too sure as one has to initiate the mode to track it.

Much of the data are collected in this little device but its the syncing with the Runtastic Me app which translates all this data into a much understandable charts. Battery life of the device is excellent from 5–7 days.
