I loved my Karma Active Fitness Tracker and had been looking for another for Mr J. I was specifically looking for one with the heart rate function on, so I got this LETSCOM Fitness Tracker.
Provided in the small, white box are the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker, a user manual and a charging method guide.
The tracker is a soft rubber band, navy blue in colour, with the tracker device fitted into it. It has a small metal plaque at end of the band with the brand name on. The fastening is a press fastening; as a short description, it is similar to a press stud but metal through the rubber. For some people who find it difficult to fasten things similar it can be quite tricky to fasten.
The tracker device is removable from the rubber band and has its own USB connection on the device itself. You just plug the device into a USB port and it will charge. It took roughly an hour to fully charge and has lasted roughly a week or so with no need to charge it again yet. It suggests you charge the device for a short while before using it for the first time. The tracker has an OLED touch screen, which allows you to tap or swipe the device to view the different functions.
After charging your tracker, the next thing you must do is download the LETSFIT app from the Google Play Store or iTunes. Don’t worry, it is a free app. Once downloaded, you have to turn your Bluetooth on and pair the device in the app. It will sync all your details from your tracker to your app in a few seconds. If you also notice that the tracker’s date and time are wrong before you sync with the app, don’t worry as it updates it over Bluetooth. You have to run the app set up and set your height, weight, age, gender and daily step and sleep targets.
So, what functions does this LETSFIT Fitness Tracker have? On the tracker device you have a pedometer to track your steps, calories burned estimation, distance walked, a watch, sleep monitor and a heart rate monitor. To view each of these, just swipe on the screen to cycle through them.
If you long press on the screen, the device will vibrate and take you to a few screens of settings. Swiping on these settings will move along to the next page. The settings are sport mode, do not disturb mode, wrist sense, display setting (horizontal/vertical display) and heart rate settings. Other settings that you can find available on the device from the app are anti lost alert, call alert, social alert (notifications for Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp etc), alarm, find your phone, music control, remote camera and sedentary alert.
The numbers on the device are also extremely easy to read. Obviously, it can’t be 100& accurate but it seems pretty accurate so far. It is also rated IP67 waterproof!
The sleep monitor tracks how long you have been in light or deep sleep and how long you stayed awake for between the time you activate sleep mode until you deactivate it when you wake up. Sleep mode automatically detects your sleep. Again, the times seem pretty accurate but there is no 100% way of knowing. I find it fascinating how it knows how much light or deep sleep you have.
As for cons, the only one that I can find is that the call alerts don’t seem to work on my Android phone. After a bit of searching on the Amazon customer questions section, it has been recommended to try two methods. The first is going to the device in your Bluetooth settings and forgetting the device and trying connecting again. The second is completely uninstalling the app and then reinstalling. In all honesty, I haven’t done either. I am quite happy with how the device is working for me at the moment and don’t want to lose my progress.
Other than that, I really like this fitness tracker. It is easy to use and gives you plenty of functions to work with. It is an amazing bargain! I’d definitely recommend to anyone looking for an activity tracker to try the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker.
The fitness tracker is currently on sale at Amazon UK for £29.95.
