Your smartband can easily be used as a GPS indicator, receiving all the directions for where to go. The indications received on the bracelet are basic, however, quite reliable since this app bridges the gap between Google Maps and the bracelet.
The bracelet receives directions and information such as travel time and distance in kilometers. The app is not free, but the 99 cents are well worth it.
