Jaybird Reign Review

Jaybird Reign is a fitness tracker which is mostly low-key in its design. This is actually not a bad thing since it’s very cool and it won’t attract unwanted attention. It’s able to measure your heart rate effectively, along with calorie burning, step counting, and sleep patterns. The price tag included is not very high, but you would expect more features to be packed in.

Pros / What Customers Like:

  • The fitness tracker is completely water and it can be a great choice for swimmers looking to track their daily activity.
  • The battery life offered by the manufacturer is around five days, which is a good bargain for a gadget like Jaybird Reign.
  • It’s compatible with both iPhone and Android.
  • One of the few fitness trackers which effectively measures its wearer’s heart rate.
  • You can choose between a couple of band lengths which come in the package.

Cons / What Customers Don't Like:

  • Customers have reported that they struggled to receive the right results after a running or a walking session.
  • One customer claimed that he was sleeping at night but the tracker thought he stood up and went for a walk!
  • Pairing your fitness tracker with your smartphone is definitely going to be a difficult process, even though the manufacturer claims it shouldn’t.


When you check out the Jaybird Reign's functionality on paper, everything sounds amazing. However, it fails to deliver in real life, where it matters. We still like the fact that the band included the option to measure your heart rate and we're sure many people are going to use it. However, customers claim that it falls apart quickly and it sometimes has issues with providing the correct feedback on your activity. It is still a decent purchase but there is a lot of improvement to be made in the following model if they decide to make it.

    The Jaybird Reign puts unique functionality into an all-day activity tracker and mobile app, but it ignores basic features that make fitness gadgets truly usable. ... Full review
