Soleus Rise Fitness Bands

Bought this last time and am wearing it as we speak.

Pros: Works well, comfortable, syncs with Android app

Cons: App is not very good. Does not speak with other fitness products.

Bottom Line: I wanted a watch that counted my steps and monitored my sleep and that is what I got. Good for the price.

Does this have to sync with a phone to count steps, and monitor sleep?
