    Couldn't agree more, the Fitbit ability to give you a 'prod' every hour if you haven't hit a minimum step target is great.

    I prefer the Withings hardware but some of the Fitbit functionality is missed.

    Every smartwatch has this feature. Should be standard in their products.

    Agreed. Fairly basic feature that the average desk jockey could really use!

    Also called an 'inactivity monitor'. I heard that before Fitbit added this feature it was their most requested feature and it is the feature that made the Garmin Vivoactive a popular fitness device.

     

    I asked for this feature when I first got the Steel HR--back when the watch first came out. Maybe there's some reason it can't be added to the present watches, but it should at least be added to new models. 

    Hey, maybe you can make it a distinguishing feature of your new Sapphire watches.

    Super basic feature that almost every other activity tracker has.

    Second this. Please add an option to buzz if you didn't take x steps in x minutes. I'd love to get a reminder to get up from my desk every so often.

    Until this is implemented, you think we could use an external app (Health?) that sends reminders recognised by Health Mate? Any ideas?

    Agree - this should absolutely be a feature!  Almost enough to drive me back to Fitbit

    Why on earth has this feature not been added?? This was being asked for 3 years ago on Reddit! And an entire year ago on your own customer suggestions. Make this a feature or program that you can turn on or off. It cannot be that hard to institute, seriously.

    Just got my Steel HR Sport, and overall I think it is a good product for the cost, I'm really surprised this feature is not there. Throwing my hat in that I would want this. What would be really great is an api for developers to make their own apps for the watch because I've noticed a few other missing features. Also the alarm is pretty worthless because it only vibrates for a few seconds. Overslept my very first alarm, good thing I had a backup.

    I am considering Scanwatch. I had Withings Pop and then preordered Steel HR. Now I've lived with Garmin watch which is fine but clumsy. I like the movement reminder and body battery percentage. It's weird that the movement reminder feature isn't yet added, but probably it's because the watch itself seems to do very little analysing hence the great battery life. Hopefully this feature can be implemented soon. Would help with

    I recently picked up a ScanWatch and feel like it is really missing this feature. A notification after x minutes of inactivity would be really helpful for us desk people.
