DON'T buy it
10 December 2018
"I sent the item back, and got a fitbit instead. Here is the difference in accuracy. (first none of these trackers are 100% reliable). With the fit bit, cooking and doing the dishes does not add steps, when I wake up I have somewhere from 30 to 50 steps but not 700 like the letsfit (I move a lot during the night). Rowing adds 20 steps instead of 200. The fitbit takes my heart rate during workout, it gives me an accurate number for calories burnt. For sleep here is where the fitbit excels, it tracks sleep from the moment i'm starting to dose of to the moment I wake up, it adds naps to your sleep. It tells me when I have woken up (as I said I move a lot), it compares your stats with people your age and sex. In that way you can see how off is your sleep, it tells you exactly what it each stage means." If you are going for a budget one I recommend check well known brands such as xiaomi and huawei or honor. Fitbit is on a Christmas sell, get one instead for roughly 25 pounds more
I would have given 0 stars to this item. I bought basing myself on the reviews. First of all for all of those saying this is a good choice to start into the the fitness world or that it does everything the fitbit does, that is not even close to reality.
I have never owned a fitbit, however my father has a Samsung gear fit 2 and because he is not good with technology I know of all its functions, settings and inaccuracies as well. I was not expecting it to work as well as the Samsung, but close enough. I was disappointed, I put it on just before work out, I went to make my shake (I mostly used my right hand), after making the shake I had "walked" 60 steps. Went to the gym, did my routine, the tracker did not track anything only steps (heart rate was not tracked at all). After 10 squat jumps I put the heart rate monitor on and got a 48!!! There is no way my heart rate is that low after jumping. One hour later I had only burned 41 calories, out of a weight lifting and hiit training session. I went on with my evening and night (I put the watch at 6pm). That day I walked "13000", my phone on the order hand marked 8000 (from morning to night) steps so 5000 steps in doors activity? it doesn't add up. While I was at the gym, rowing increased step count by 200, and pull ups by 30 steps. I finally went to sleep, it did pick up my sleep accurately that night. However I woke up having walked 700 steps. Then I had a nap, it did not record that. During the day again my phone tracked several thousand steps fewer than the fitness tracker. That night I went to bed by 9:30 pm, the watch did not record my sleep until 12 am.
One thing I can say it is water proof and if you want a fancy watch go for it.
It took me 2 days to give up on it. If you are looking for a budget beginners fitness tracker go with the xiaomi mi band 3 (which I've read good reviews) or invest directly on a fitbit, garmin, Samsung or apple.
The reason why I got this, was because I need to know how many calories go in and out to reach my weight goal and to modify my workout and diet. I have never record my heart bit during workouts and I wanted to make sure I was not reaching risky highs and that my heart health was indeed improving. Finally, I have been waking up tired and wanted to know if my sleep quality was good and the number of hours not enough or if I was having a bad sleep.
I have never worried too much about this things, but after almost 2 years working out and not reaching my goal, I decided it was time to track my activity. I thought this will give an idea of what fitness trackers can do. One thing I'm sure of is, that I will invest in a better one or not track my activity at all.
