Charger

We repeatedly refer to the dislike of manufactures using propriety chargers which can’t be used by any other product. The TerraillonActivi -T Tracker does not come with a charger or a charger lead but rather allows you to remove the strap from the lead and plug directly into any USB phone/ Laptop charger. This saves the hassle to carry a lead around with you. (this is a great bonus) The battery life is good at 7days (some sites refer to 10 days) and takes 90 minutes to recharge.

 

Wrist strap

The unit on initial inspection comes with a small wrist strap / band, an additional strap is included in the box with allows the unit to be worn by a larger hand. Removal of the strap is easy to fit the larger strap. Currently their does not appear to be a variety of colour straps available while the unit comes in various colours, two sizes are supplied, Activi-T Band adapts to all wrist sizes. Note: When fitting the band on your wrist this must be fitted with the charging site to one side,I.e.the button orientated to your arm and not your hand. The strap when fitted on your left-hand results in the Activi – T logo visually backwards, this is a paltry gripe.

 

Sleep mode on the band is achieved via pressing the buttonfor 5 seconds, this is recommended to again press the button for 5 seconds in the morning to switch to activity mode. This is not a welcome feature as required action on the user’s behalf. If this was automated this would be an improved user experience. The unit does not mention water / splash proof while the design looks at it could easily facilitate this option by coating the charger connect to prevent water damage.

Warranty

The Terraillon range comes with a 2-year warranty which is great to see. Most of the support information is in French and translated to English. The Terraillon range includes, Bathroom scales, Kitchen scales, Baby care, Connected well-being Medical, Health and Kitchen Accessories.
