Runtastic Orbit


Fitness app and device maker Runtastic gets into the activity-tracker game with the Orbit, a capable, versatile OLED-display-equipped band that's highly reminiscent of the now-recalled Fitbit Force.

Measures steps, distance, calories burned, and sleep. Excellent display. Waterproof. Includes two wristbands and one clip case. Apps available on Android and iOS

No food-logging or calorie-counting component (though integration with MyFitnessPal is planned for a future update). No stair tracking. App doesn't track weight. Heart-rate monitoring isn't supported. Requires a smartphone

The best activity trackers are the ones that make users want to keep using them. They fit into your life effortlessly so that you don't think about all the silent work they're doing throughout the day: counting your steps, tracking your sleep,...

Runtastic Orbit review


Nice app, shame about the watch?

Runtastic app is really rather good, though you don't need this to use it ; Ingenious multiple straps ; Battery life is excellent

Screen is not fit for purpose ; Useful data shown is minimal ; Build quality is on the budget side

It's a passable fitness tracker, but for running the Runtastic Orbit is too lightweight in terms of the data it shows, and the screen really isn't usable in action. Even at around £80/$110 it's not exactly a bargain

Runtastic Orbit im Test


Runtastic ist spät dran mit seinem Wearable. Der Schritte-Zähler-Markt wird zunehmend unübersichtlich. Kommt Orbit zu spät?

Fazit: Mit Orbit macht Runtastic fast alles richtig. Der Tragekomfort stimmt. Die Kernfunktion des Schritte-Zählens überzeugt uns. Und die Vibrations-Alarme sind sehr sinnvoll. Außerdem top: Der Orbit ist wasserdicht. Ein bisschen Kritik muss sich...

Runtastic Orbit im Test: Wasserfester Fitness-Tracker


Den Runtastic Orbit tragen Sie auf Wunsch an der Kleidung, außerdem fungiert er als Zweitbildschirm für die Runtastic-App. Darüber sind Schlaf-Tracking und Helligkeitssensor mit an Bord. Wie gut der Runtastic Orbit seine Funktionen umsetzt, erklärt...

Die Second Screen-Funktion macht den ansonsten soliden Orbit zu einem guten Fitness-Tracker, der vor allem von der Anbindung an die Runtastic-App profitiert. Softwareseitige Umsetzung, Schwimmtauglichkeit, Funktionalität auch ohne Smartphone-Verbindung...

This product works but just barely, I'm giving it away most of the features you can not use on your phone unless you pay an extra monthly fee and don't get me started on resetting the time waste of money

Functional but not very user friendly


The Runtastic Orbit Activity Tracker is stylish enough, but I had several issues with charging it.

Great tracker


This is a great activity/tracker. Its fun to also track your sleep however, the button can easily be bumped without knowing it. I was out doing heavy activity for about an hour and the button was accidently bumped so it had me sleeping instead of...
