UK based consumer electronics company August International has announced the launch of the SWB200 smart activity tracker. Packed full of features, this app-enabled wristband tracks a user’s daily activity including steps, distance, heart rate, blood oxygen and calories burnt. It also monitors sleep, providing information on quality, duration as well as the stages of sleep.

Splash and dust proof and boasting 30-day battery life and OLED display, the August SWB200 is, claims the manufacturer, perfect for everyday use. It is being billed as the ideal solution for anyone wanting to get into shape or simply have a better understanding of their overall health and fitness.

The August SWB200 works in conjunction with the dedicated ‘August Pulse’ app allowing users to keep track of all the data their lifestyle generates. Compatible with iOS and Android, the wristband simply connects to the app via Bluetooth to wirelessly sync all the information.

The app enables users to configure reminders for getting active or upcoming appointments and set alarms. It also monitors daily targets and progress for steps, distance and calories burnt as well as manually measuring heart rate and blood pressure and reviewing sleep history. 

Aside from its activity and fitness tracking abilities, the August SWB200 keeps users connected by alerting them to alarms, calls and texts as well as notifications from a range of apps including Facebook, Twitter and What’s App. It will also send alerts for long periods of inactivity, such as sitting, to help encourage people to move more.

Additionally, the August SWB200 has a ‘Search Wristband’ function causing the device to vibrate so it can be located easily in the event it is misplaced. The August SWB200 can also be used as a remote photo taker. By simply rotating or shaking the device, users can control their smartphone and take photos. 

Slim and lightweight, the August SWB200 has an OLED display and adjustable flexible strap that is comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Ideal for any active individual, whether they are step counting or trail running, it is splash and dustproof. Thanks to a 30-day battery, the device will last around a month per charge so it should always be ready for use.

The August SWB200 RRP at £54.95. More information can be found on
