Syncing with Readibands
Whenever a Readiband is within 33' (10m) the Sync app will automatically start capturing sleep data from it. It'll sync with up to 6 Readibands at a time.
Make sure you position your syncing station in a central location where your users will gather (i.e. locker room, cafeteria).
