Unlike most fitness trackers out today, which tend to either be a rubber bracelet or a clip on for your belt that looks similar to the old style pedometers, the LEAF is a beautiful piece of jewelry.
The LEAF can be worn in four different ways. A bracelet, necklace, a brooch on the collar of your shirt or clipped onto your waistband. It is a very versatile piece of jewelry and it also comes in three different tones. Silver, Rose and gold.
I will tell you that like any fitness tracker or other device out there, it has its pros and cons. I do find that for the woman on the go, who wants something to not only track her activity for her, but also wants it to look nice while wearing her business or dress attire, then the LEAF is the best fit.
The LEAF will help you track your steps, your activity (it won’t let you be idle for long), your cycle and your sleep patterns. It also has breathing exercises that you can use to help you relax. This is a feature that I love!
The App for your phone that is free to download is very easy to use. Once you have synced your LEAF you are ready to go. Keeping track of everything you need to stay fit and healthy.
I will tell you, I tried wearing it every way you can. The most accurate step readings are when it is worn on your waistband or as a brooch on your collar. The only problem I had is that when on the waist of your pants, it can slip off easily. As a brooch, there is no problem at all, you don’t even notice it is there.
As a bracelet it is far too sensitive and over counts your steps by a large margin. I also found it a bit bulky, as I have very small wrists. As a necklace it is beautiful, but doesn’t count steps very well.
So, try it every way and see which works best for you. If you want my advice, stick to wearing it on your collar!
One thing I really love about this tracker is the ability to use their breathing exercises to relax. Anyone who has ever had to run through and airport after being held up at security knows how badly you can sometimes need to just BREATHE! The LEAF has a few different exercises that you can do, all with music available to download.
