I agree, but my ankle is thicker than my risk wrist, so I generally take the cap off and thread the band through my shoelaces. I do this when biking and on the elliptical. One of my older bands freaked out when I placed it on my ankle under a sweatband.
Thanks to all who responded. Now I just have to decide whether to get a larger size for my ankle or stick to the wrist. Glad to know it works on the ankle. Wearing the device on my non-dominant arm would put in on the same arm as my watch. Really don't want to do that.
Anita. I wore the v.1 all the time for Spinning class and road cycling. It worked fine, and seem to register rougly the same steps as the Fuelband and Fitbit when worn on the ankle. It is very nice to be able to count your rides. I think I had ordered a size larger than needed for that very purpose.
Just to clarify, UP is designed to be worn on the wrist of your non-dominant hand for best tracking results, so we recommend users wear it on the wrist. However, some users have experimented with wearing their UP bands in their pockets, bags, or on their ankles during specific activities. Feel free to experiment and determine what meets your satisfaction.
