I’d been eyeing this product for a while after I saw an ad on Facebook. I couldn’t really justify paying so much for it when i already had a fitbit. But the fitbit was starting to really irritate my skin and I wanted something that gave me more options on where to wear it and this seemed to be a great choice. However, I have to say, it fell short of my expectations.Pros:1. versatility to wear in different ways (bracelet, necklace, or clip)2. is much prettier than any other activity tracker3. syncs to the app much faster than my fitbit4. it helps track your period (no other activity tracker does that, that I’m aware of)Cons:1. the product comes with the double wrap bracelet, but only in S/M, which is too small for me (the large is an additional $24)2. when worn as a necklace, it’s a bit heavy and tends to stick to my skin (the backside is flat metal)3. the app won’t allow me to choose an earlier time for bed before 9pm (I know that may not be an issue for some, but I get up really early, so I have to go to bed early)4. the alarm is kind of a joke; the device vibrates, but I almost can’t feel it and it never wakes me up. I also have one set to remind me to take my vitamins in the evening and at this point, I have never felt it go off.5. it doesn’t seem to log any activity unless its continuous for at least 5 min (no step tracking at all unless it logs activity of 5 min or more)6. the stress tracking doesn’t make a whole lot of sense; during the day, I usually feel very stressed at work, but it says I’m stress resistantFor me, the cons far outweigh the pros. I wish I could have tested this out before I spent over $120. I definitely would not have bought this.

I really wanted to love this. I have waited a few months before writing this review so that I could really live with it before giving my feedback. I was excited when I bought it. I am not a fitness person, so I didn’t mind the reviews that criticized the accuracy of the step count etc. I got it because I wanted to monitor (give or take) my overall activity, sleep and stress levels. I also dislike the look of the fitbit. I am a working mom, so not super glamorous, but still wanted something pretty to look at. On paper I thought the bellabeat had everything I wanted.First, the pros: I like the fact that you can track you sleep, steps, stress and even your meditation. So the idea of it is good. My favorite is the step tracker.The cons:1) It is much too big. This is much larger than a standard woman’s watch. When I carry my son with my arm on which I wear the bellabeat, he complains that it hurts him because it digs in his sides.2) The bracelet it comes with is worthless. I started wearing it and it doesn’t close completely so it was falling off everywhere. Even when I wasn’t doing anything super active. So I had to buy a bracelet on Etsy, with lobster claws and I didn’t love it either. Finally I had to have one specially made that makes it look OK, but still not ideal. Finally the specialty bracelets made for it ended up costing me more than the bellabeat itself.3) The sleep tracker is way off. This was one of the main reasons I got it. I wanted to track my sleep. But I end up having to enter it in manually every day as the tracker does not pick up when I am sleeping – or sometimes picks up that I am sleeping when I am wide awake. I thought I had to enter it manually the first few weeks to get used to my schedule and then it would start to know my habits, but it still doesn’t track my sleep properly after wearing it for 3 months straight.Conclusion, the only reason I am giving it 2 stars is because I think the idea of a “well rounded” fitness tracker for women is really good. I just think they need to make it much smaller so it can really look like jewelry and of course improve the sleep tracker, and bracelet.

I am leaving this feedback as I was previously very pleased with my Leaf. I started having issues with it several months ago – it was losing data often. The company replied to my concerns and gave me directions to reset it, which I did – I had to also replace the perfectly good recently replaced battery though. Well now it will not sync at all, hasn’t synced in about a month. I tried replacing the battery and going through the steps they recommended. The company is now ignoring my customer service requests and not responding now that my Leaf is completely useless and won’t do anything. I’ve asked for a replacement and they will not respond to me. Oh well, it was nice for the 6 months that it worked but I am so disappointed in the outcome and customer service.
