Review: Gameband for Minecraft

The Gameband for Minecraft is a unique wearable that all Minecraft enthusiasts should own. It’s different from other wearables designed to do things like track athletic performance and sleep quality. In fact, it’s the only design we know that is specifically designed for gamers.

Practically everything about this device is unique. That’s because it is the only design we’ve seen that lets you play Minecraft no matter where we go. By wearing the Gameband, you don’t have to worry that you’ll get stuck playing with someone else’s account. No matter where you go, you can move ahead within your world.  That, alone, makes it a standout device that a lot of people will want to think about buying.

Top Features

We’ll start by discussing the physical features of this Minecraft Gameband. It has an extremely rugged build that also manages to feel quite comfortable on the wrist. The soft rubber construction helps a lot in this area.

We also like that Gameband includes a USB port so players can plug directly into any computer. It doesn’t matter what operating system the computer uses, which is especially nice. If you have a Windows computer at home, you can still use your friends Mac computer without any problems.

The LED display is also worth mentioning. While LED displays have some obvious limitations, this one works quite well. It will even let you customize your display messages, icons, and images.

What’s Unique About Gameband for Minecraft

The most unique thing about this Gameband wearable is that it stores and updates Minecraft information instantly. This is perfect for people who love this game and have devoted hours to building their own worlds.

Since it has an affordable price (more on that below), though, it isn’t just for diehard fans. It’s also great for casual players who want a mobile experience that doesn’t tie them to a specific device. You can even carry your mods with you. No matter how much time you devote to the game, that’s a rather impressive feature that we think most players will use.

Gameband for Minecraft Price

The Gameband for Minecraft usually retails at $80. While researching this wearable, though, we found that it’s possible to buy it for significantly less. At one point, we found it on sale for $40. If you run into that kind of deal, you should buy the Gameband immediately. Those kinds of great deals don’t often last long, so you should take advantage of it.

Some online stores will also give you free shipping and delivery, which will shave a few more dollars off the total price.

Potential Drawbacks

The Gameband comes in small and large sizes. While we find that this is adequate for most people, there are a handful of gamers out there who might not fit either size very well. If your sizing falls somewhere between small and large, then you will have to tolerate a wristband that isn’t perfect. That doesn’t mean that it’s unreasonably uncomfortable. But it may mean that it slips around more than you like.

If you do fall between sizes, we recommend buying the large. While it’s annoying to have a wristband jingling on your arm, it’s a lot better than wearing a wristband that cuts off your circulation.

Some people will dislike that this wristband only has an LED display instead of a touchscreen or full-color display. While that’s an understandable complaint considering how advanced wearables have become, it’s important to remember that Gameband wanted to build this product so it would match the needs of young players as well as adults. By using an LED, the company keeps the price low and makes it more durable.

Conclusion

If you play Minecraft, then this is an accessory you really should add to your arsenal of devices. Even if you only log a few hours a week, you will appreciate having the ability to carry your account’s unique world with you no matter where you go.

There aren’t many devices out there that offer anything similar to what we find in the Gameband. That seems like a huge oversight for other companies. Why didn’t they decide to make wearables connected to this extremely popular game? That’s something we can’t answer. We’re just glad that Gameband saw the opportunity.

Considering that this device from Gameband has such an affordable price, we think it’s worth buying, even for casual players. Of course, if you really love playing Minecraft, this is one of the best things you can buy to improve your experience even more.
