The technical features that are common to all three bands include a 1.1 inch AMOLED touch-display (covering 100% of P3 color gamut with a resolution of 126 x 294 pixels), and functions such as 5 ATM water-resistance, pedometer, sleep tracking,  heart rate monitor and even a SpO2 sensor.

This covers the basics that you would expect from a fitness tracker. The 12 sports modes the band tracks include the likes of cycling, running, hiking, free training, badminton, swimming, rowing, elliptical and weightlifting.

In terms of non-fitness features there are messages, call alerts, hundreds of band faces (5 on the band the rest in the app), app notifications, music controls, weather, stopwatch, alarm and find my phone. The Fashion iteration is the only one with NFC connectivity for on-the-go payments.

The main differences, though between the three are in design. The variants come in different strap options and color combinations.

Battery life is pretty decent. The bands will go for up to two weeks on a full charge thanks to a 100mAh Lithium-ion battery. To refuel from zero to full takes about an hour and a half via the pogo pin charger.


European certification

The wait for an international release might be over soon. The fitness band has received certification from the EEC yesterday. The filing reveals the fitness band has the model number OB19B1.
