Sphero Force Band Review

Published March 26, 2017 by I Blog


Hey guys! This revie is following last weeks BB-8 review, so enjoy!


This is the Force Band. It is made by Sphero for BB-8.


There are 3 games that you can play;

  1. Control your droid
  2. Combat Training
  3. Holocrons


You can control your BB-8 with this Force Band. The app gives you plenty of instructions. You do this with a Force push and you can pull BB-8 back to you and guide him from side to side. You know if you’ve done it right because the Force Band will make a noise. However, the only downside is that the Force Band doesn’t always recognise my movements, so sometimes I have to repeat a movement several times to get BB-8 to move. ☹️


I think that the combat training is alright, but you can’t do anything unless you have weapons in the armoury. So, I don’t really see the point of the Combat Training. You have to mimic the movements shown on the screen of the app to use your weapons to fight the dark side. The only thing that may be a problem is that you have to manually change your weapon in the app and if you are out and about playing with the Force Band, you’d have to stop playing, select an new weapon and start playing again.


I really love the Holocrons because I am a collector and it’s fun to collect all of the different items.  However, this can be very time consuming. Like reallllllllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy timmmmeeeeeeee conssssssuuuuummmmiiiiiinnnnnggggggggggg!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sometimes, it only takes 5 seconds, sometimes it takes 5 minutes, sometimes it takes 55! There is no telling! However, I was sooooo happy when I caught Chewbacca!

This is the app. It is enabled by Bluetooth. The app is very helpful.You can learn how to control your droid, view your weapons in your Armoury and see your Holocron collection in your Holocron vault.

I honestly wouldn’t recommend this Force Band if you don’t have a BB-8, but if you do, buy it, buy it now! It is soooooooo cool!
