Ok, so this watch for the price it works fantastic. For some people that have mentioned some things about it such as 🔋 battery consumption being a lot by the app let me clear something out first.
(1)-the app to sync with watch works with the GPS, not Bluetooth.
(2)-GPS is always trying to your current location so it will use a lot of your phone battery no matter what phone you are carrying.
How to fix this here I’ll give you some advice.
(1)-To conserve some battery turn off your location on your phone when not using the app. What I suggest is turn it on like every hour or few hours during the day so it will record your steps heart beats per minute BPM
(2)-At home or gym or whenever you’re exercising leave your location on since you’re not moving GPS will find your location and will be constantly synching your records without using a lot of power (battery) and leave it’s location on at night so it will record your sleep.
REMEMBER DURING THE DAY TRY NOT TO HAVE YOUR PHONE LOCATION ON that is what consumes your battery, not the app itself
Good luck and I totally recommend this watch. When you wear it it doesn’t even feel like having it on your hand. Enjoy!
I really love this. I never had a fitness monitor and found I was able to do it alone. It also links with your phone, and it’s really cool, because not only can you tell heart rate, number of steps… etc., but it even has a setting to track your sleep!! I tried it last night and saw I slept 7 hours. Of that 1.5 hours was a deep sleep, 5 was a light sleep and .5 was “awake sleep”. I need to research more about sleep patterns to see how I rank!! There is also a take photo feature in the app. I still need to read more and play around with that. But the directions are simple to follow! Oh, and it was way less expensive than other fitness trackers! And you can set it to buzz/vibrate for various reasons. One being inactivity.
I was a little nervous because the bad reviews are really bad but I have had no problems. The fitness tracker does everything it says it is supposed to. It is easy to charge. I do not have a cable because you don’t need one silly people! you plug the device directly into a USB port. Another thing said they had problems with the app tracking sleep.
something about sleep only registering from 12 am to 12 am. It does show up on the screen until your device syncs. Then once the sync is complete with the app, it shows you the sleep patterns. I have already ordered another one for a family member. I refused to pay the expensive prices that the other trackers cost. I’m thinking this was well worth the money! I have had it now for about 2 weeks with no problems. I followed instructions right out of the box and plugged it into the USB. It says to do this for 10 minutes to “initialize the device” Maybe some of the people who gave it bad reviews did not do this step or could not get it to sync properly with their phone. Again I have had no problems and feel like it is very simple to use.
