    Oh yes, I wanted a Jawbone UP, but it costs 129€. For a wristband (with some nice features) the price tag is too high.
    All I want is a cheap wristband with pedometer and sleep cycle alarm clock. So I was hoping for a next generation smartwatch from apple or samsung or maybe xiaomi.
    But if this takes too long, I would buy this Baidu wristband.
