Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

PROS

  • The Edge fitness band is waterproof up to 50 meters, which means you can wear it in the shower and while swimming.
  • Everything--including sleep tracking--is automatically recorded on the Edge, so there's no need to manually put it into sleep mode.
  • The Edge has an attractive design--it's small, discreet, and can be transferred between a wrist band and a clip.

CONS

  • The Edge isn't perfectly accurate when it comes to tracking steps--reviewers found that it under reports activity.
  • iHealth's app is a little clunky when it comes to data logging, and the trends screen isn't useful.
  • Bluetooth syncing isn't perfect, and you may find that the Edge doesn't always sync when you need it to.
The iHealth Edge is a waterproof, budget-friendly fitness tracker that tracks steps, sleep, and calories burned. One of the most impressive things about the Edge is that it automatically tracks what type of activity you're doing--you don't have to tell it when you go to sleep, like you do with many sleep-tracking fitness trackers. The Edge has a versatile design that lets you wear it on your wrist or clipped to your clothing--so you aren't stuck with a clunky wristband. The Edge boasts seven-day battery life and, unlike many fitness trackers, can be worn in the shower and while swimming; it's rated for up to 50 meters.

In particular, the sleep mode functions automatically, which is an all-to-often overlooked feature that is incredibly useful as not everyone remembers to turn on the sleep mode as they get into bed.
