Runtastic has long been known for their fitness apps. Now they have a wearable device that can track your steps, active minutes, calories burned and even your sleep. Don’t confuse it for one of the many Android Wear watches that have been recently announced. This watch has an analog face with some modern tracking hardware and Bluetooth.
In order to take full advantage of the watch, you’ll need to download the companion app Runtastic Me from the Google Play store. The app will allow you to do the following:
- Step tracking: Monitor your daily steps and total distance covered to ensure you’re keeping active, even on the busiest of days.
- Active minutes: Track your active minutes to try and identify moments in your day when you can sneak in a bit of extra movement during regular daily activities.
- Calories burned: Monitor your burned calories, utilizing a complex calorie calculation incorporating BMR, AMR, weight, age and gender.
- Set & achieve goals: Set goals and monitor your progress throughout the day – colored progress bars will give you a sense of how you’re doing
- Challenge yourself: Compare your daily stats to the previous day, week, month or year to see how your efforts are stacking up and which days could use a boost of activity Draw motivation to up your activity level & reach your goals.
- Kick off your streak: Start a streak by reaching your daily step goal two days in a row – the more consecutive days, the longer your streak
- Integration with other Runtastic apps: Runtastic app activity data is integrated into your Me app values to ensure the most accurate and dynamic daily stats are recorded.
The Moment is available in 4 different models.
- Runtastic Moment Basic: $129
- Runtastic Moment Classic: $179
- Runtastic Moment Elite: $179

It would appear that the only differences between the models are in the build materials. Both the Classic and Elite models offer higher quality features while the basic and fun models focus on being inexpensive.
