    Wait, I have the Up and I had the Nike fuel band. The pain with the Up is having to plug it into the phone to update. I believe the S band will have blue tooth. It's an unbelievable feature to not have to take it off to update

    I have been waiting also. How can they release the s4 and not release all the accessories for it at launch??

    My Fitbit Flex is working fine with the S4. Initially, I wanted the S Band.... however, I decided to go with a third party device (Fitbit) so as not to be locked into Samsung. I like that I can use the Flex with any phone.

    I emailed Samsung Canada asking for a release date and they don't even know yet. I too am waiting patiently for the S-Band but may end up getting the Fitbit or Nike+ GPS sportwatch if they don't release it soon.

    Never did get the pogo pin charging dock for my Gnex, that I just traded up from, because they never made one. Don't wait forever.

    Just like a lot of the accessories promised by Samsung, I wouldn't get your hopes up for the S Band, although I'm secretly wanting it also lol.

    Hey just wanted to add I have the fuelband and the up band. I don't use the fuelband no longer because I no longer have a apple device. So I got the UP band and yes it suxs having to plug it in to sync also no led screen. The fuelband is a much better fit tho. I would say wait for the S band if it comes out.

    More features on the UP and Fitbit Flex than the S-Band. Not to mention that S Health is a pretty weak app compared to the others. I use the UP and am happy with it. It only takes a minute to sync it with the device.

    I have the fitbit and really like it. It syncs automatically (through Bluetooth) to the S4, and will give a notification if I need to charge it (every week or so). It like that it's smaller, and I can keep it on a belt loop or in a pocket. I don't like things on my wrists . . .

    I wouldn't buy into a proprietary fitness tracker made by Samsung as an ancillary product (bell or whistle) to help drive sales of their phones. Jawbone, Fitbit and Nike have proven records as standalone trackers that sync with some phones as an added value. I use and love the Fitbit One. Just a few days with it and I realized it was much more than a "gimmick". The company has built an entire ecosystem - support, community, dedicated online tools - specifically for their trackers. They have partnerships with many online fitness/social media sites and mobile devices, making it anything but proprietary. It will only become more functional over time - regardless of what phones I switch to down the road.

    FWIW, The FitBit One (unlike the Flex) displays all your info right on the device, greatly reducing the need to rely on your phone to see your progress.

    I question the longevity of S Health. I wonder how dedicated Samsung is to taking on the whole digital health tracking trend. It seems to me that they have bigger fish to fry (lag?!) and should be happy to simply partner with Nike, Fitbit, etc.

    I doubt Nike will partner with Samsung considering one of the Apple execs serves on the board of directors for Nike. Came up on Google when I was researching when Nike fuel band app will be available on android. And in case if you are wondering the same thing the answer is basically never. Bc of that relationship Nike works almost exclusively with Apple.

    So what do you guys recommend, the fitbit flex? Seeing the S band will probably never be released.

    I have the Fitbit One because I don't like wearing anything on my wrist. I'm glad that I got this instead of waiting for the S Band. The free app will work on a number of phones, auto sync using Bluetooth and seems to have more options based on what I've read about the upcoming (maybe) S Band. The Fitbit stays charged for about a week. I've had it now for two weeks and I'm really pleased with it. I wasn't so sure when I purchased it but figured I could always return it if I was unhappy with it. Now, I have no intention of returning it and I'm even happier that I didn't wait around for Samsung to finally do something. The Fitbit is a great product and works really well.
