The line is blurring between what is a smartwatch and what is a smart band. The S908 (aka G03 from Makibes) blends the features of a rectangular watch with a fully waterproof band design. With an installed GPS the device is able to accurately track distance traveled whether it is by running or cycling. This is far more accurate than depending on step count. Accumulated data is available for each sport directly on the band while recording, and also the last event saved in each sport category is viewable in history.
The band is able to tether to a phone app where basic information for the current day is presented. Unfortunately, as of this review, the phone app was not able to sync with the band to bring over the sports information or the sleep monitoring information. The app has not been updated since 2015, so there is little likelihood this will be fixed any time soon.
