I purchased a Stiiv Touch over the holidays ... originally for my GF. It turned out not to be compatible with her phone (Bluetooth 3.0).
Recently, I began using it with my phone (Maxwest Astro 4) ... and it works flawlessly. I've become quite a fan of this simple, unobtrusive device, and also the "MyLand" game which, simple as it is, really does encourage me to walk!
But now my GF really wants in on the fun. We own several name brand Android tablets that match the specs, and that I suspect would work ... but the PlayStore wouldn't even let me try to install the app, saying simply that it's not compatible. I actually tried it on my phone on a lark, as a last resort, and was pleasantly surprised.
I'd like to purchase a fusion for her, but she'll also need a device to run it on. I'm not against replacing her phone, but she's pretty well attached to it's feature set. if I went through all of the trouble and still had the same issue, that would not be a good situation. A new tablet (or perhaps one of our existing ones) might be a better choice.
Obviously, there are devices out there (like mine) that support the software/device even though they aren't on the "official" Android support list.
I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who has had success with the Android app and what hardware they're running it on, especially if anyone got it to work on a tablet. I'd also like to hear from the manufacturer if we can ever expect an update to the ridiculously narrow compatibility list, and if there is possibly a procedure to side-load the app onto hardware that meets the specifications but is effectively blocked by the PlayStore.
The relatively narrow compatibility list comes as a result of the incredible fragmentation of Android devices, even within the same model of phone. Since it's just not possible to test every phone with every combination of carrier re-skin/feature set available, we're limited to the most popular devices with the standard setups.
Because there seems to be extra fragmentation in the Android tablet world, the Play Store doesn't allow us to give a blanket approval for a device model, even if your particular tablet meets specs. If you think that your tablet would be compatible (meets all three requirements here: https://www.striiv.com/pages/supported-devices), please email us at email@example.com and we can help you sideload the app onto the device.
Oh, and, we're so glad that you're enjoying the Touch so much! Your girlfriend will love her Fusion, too! :)
