GOQII Fit Band Review

I am so excited to share with you my review of the GOQII Fit band. I have had the chance to test this bad boy out for the past month and a half and it’s been so much fun! As a mama to a one year old little man {who doesn’t stop moving} and another little one on the way, I was struggling a bit with being able to maintain my fitness as a priority – because taking care of my little guy is obviously always first on my list. But taking care of myself too and making sure I am always moving is very important to me too. I love being able to track that, and so much more, using this band.

I tried out another wearable band in the past and now being able to compare the two, I like the GOQII so much more! GOQii is not just a wearable activity tracker. This is part of their services, but they are differentiated from the other wearables out there because they offer coaching.

Here is a little idea how the GOQii Band works:

  • Tracks your activity and sleep
  • Touch screen OLED display
  • Battery life up to 4-5 days
  • 360 degree motion sensor
  • Bluetooth low energy
  • Remote HI5
  • Virba Humm alarm
  • Sweat proof and water resistant
  • Compatible with iOS, Android and Windows Mobile

I am in love with the fact that I can wear this band all day as a watch of sorts and with a little tap it tells me the time. I also don’t have to use my phone to check in on the band to see where I am at for the day – it tells me right on the band itself easily, with another tap. On the band itself I can easily see the time, my steps, how many miles I’ve gone each day, calories burned, how long I slept and my activity time. steps

And here’s a look as to what the steps & mileage {I need to convert the KM to MI} looks like in my app.

I also love being able to get a better idea of my sleep cycles. Being pregnant with another little one running around, I have been so tired. There hasn’t been any second trimester energy burst for me yet – I hope it’s coming soon! But until then, I have been going to bed early & getting lots of rest! Here’s a little look at what some of my sleep cycles have looked like from the app.

GOQii integrates certified health coaches with the GOQii Band activity tracker and app, which measures and tracks sleep, activities, and nutrition. Users earn ‘Karma Points,”  which convert daily goal achievement into monetary donations for global causes. GOQii coaches look at the big picture of your health, analyzing the data collected by the GOQii Band and App to help you make sustainable, permanent lifestyle changes to achieve your goals.

I’ve been inspired to maintain proper nutrition, activity levels and exercise, while monitoring sleep and health habit changes while using this band. The coaching feature has been awesome because I can check in with my coach via unlimited daily text messages and scheduled video chat sessions for real, one-on-one motivation and accountability. Leah has been an awesome fit for me, she’s always checking in with me to see how I’ve been doing and she specializes in pregnancy & post pregnancy fitness/nutrition. I’m obviously not setting any weight loss goals right now, but I have committed to walking 4-5 miles each day, which I think is a good goal for me.

A little more information about the GOQII program, since it’s just starting out: The U.S. Beta trial launched in February; I was part of 500 participants who were selected to join and receive 12 months of personalized health coaching to help with goal setting, habit changes, accountability and motivation for a more holistic outlook to their overall health. The exclusive price for the 12 month Beta is $99 (no payment required to apply). If selected, you’ll be asked to provide regular feedback on the product as you use it!

    I too have used another fitness tracker, which I have been really fond of, but this device seems so much better in every aspect. I am inspired to try this one out! Thanks for the info!
