Regarding the battery, it says 14 days or more, but this is the longest case, and it’s actually shorter. It depends on the settings, but it may be better to think about a week with various functions turned off.

Although the functions are modest, it is a bargain at about 3000 yen for a smart band made by a global manufacturer. If you are interested in a smart band, why not try it out first?
