    Just curious if anyone is using one of these sort of devices with the Passport and your experience with software compatibility. It looks to me that none of them have BB10 apps available, so how are the Android apps working?

    Works ok on my z30 with 10.3 and Fitbit Surge. Sometimes the connection can be a bit spotty.

    I was using a Jawbone. Seemed like sometimes it had a hard time connecting but I had similar problems with trying to pair it with our Android tablet. The Android app worked beautifully well and was very well thought out. No complaints other than the fact that pairing it was sometimes a bit cumbersome.

    I use a Fitbit zip with a Passport. The android app works but pairs at a lower speed than with my iPad. If you don't mind the delay updating the data then you could say that it works.

    Jawbone Up24 pairing was a bit questionable (app worked well though). Fitbit One worked fine (no notifications though) + the Fitbit will sync via a PC/laptop also so no real need for the app to sync via the Passport (apart from when you're out and about). Sync worked well once you were using the app on the Passport

    Tried pairing my Samsung Fit with my SE Passport, but no go. The Passport cannot download SHealth. It seems to be a Samsung proprietary piece of software.
    I'm looking at the Microsoft Band pretty close. Wonder if anyone got this to work on the Passport.

    I'm using my Fitbit Charge HR with my Passport and the Android app works just fine. I have seen the slow update when synching as well, but so has my Fiancee and her Iphone 6+ so I can't say the delay is BB related.

    Got the UP24 app loaded from Google Play and works real good. Sometime I have to turn Bluetooth off and turn on to get the info to sync. Not a biggie but works just fine

    I used Fitbit with my Passport and the sync speed was insanely slow. I used the Android Fitbit app.

    I have a Jawbone UP3. The android app works almost flawlessly. I do experience the lag when waiting for the app to open at times, but when it does all of my updated data is there, so no real complaints from me.

    May I ask how you managed to pair your Mi band with your Passport? Which app do you use? Thanks!

    I have an old school Polar running watch that I paid $600 for. I can't justify the Loop, I already look like Robocop when I run.

    No, uses the stupid infrared dongle. I know this isn't helpful, I'm just venting because literally so many new and better things came out right after I bought it.

    I had installed the Android Polar software awhile back when I was contemplating a new Polar watch, it loaded but I remember not being too confident it would work, as it deterred me from making that purchase.

    That was prior to 10.3 though.

    I use 2 smartwatches and of these Up smart bracelets. Running 10.3 it's almost no problem getting my activities tracked and synced. However, a friend of mine (Classic, 10.3) cannot connect his Garmin Gps fitness watch/smartwatch to his BB.
