Continuous heart rate
The initial connection is tricky
Some accuracy issues
Of course, it also secondaries as a smartwatch, so you don't necessarily have to be active while you're wearing it. Some customers might choose to wear it while they're at work or only running errands. Since you can get your smartphone notifications right to your wrist, it becomes a handy tool for activities that don't include a physical workout.
As you would expect, it's going to track your everyday activities, all day long. These include how many steps you've taken, your calories burned, how long you've been active, and how far you've traveled. Additionally, as is becoming more standard for this type of product, it will keep track of your continuous heart rate as well as your sleep. You can also take advantage of the fact that you will get a comprehensive analysis of all of these stats.
Since this is more than just a fitness tracker, you're going to be able to take advantage of some of the more basic Smartwatch features. These include the ability to make and receive phone calls, check your text messages as well as respond, and keep track of your calendar notifications. It's always nice to have access to your cell phone right from your wrist. Of course, all of these features require you to be connected to a smartphone via a Bluetooth connection.
Customers can also appreciate the fact that it has multi-sport tracking. The tracker can keep track of more than just your walking or running. You also can track activities such as basketball, football, yoga, skipping, climbing, and many more. No matter what you're doing, the chances are that you'll be able to track it on this product.
Additionally, the Fitpolo H706 Color Screen Fitness Watch is waterproof. What is this mean? You can take it swimming with you. Yes, this is becoming more common, but there are still a lot of products on the market that you can't wear in the pool. If you're someone who likes to work out in the swimming pool, you're in luck, because this can track your swimming activities as well. No more having to remove the watch while doing the dishes, or taking a shower. You indeed can wear it all day.
If you're using the Fitpolo app on your smartphone to sync your data, you're going to need this connection. For the most part, it's relatively easy to get the tracker to sync to your phone. However, it can be tricky to get that initial connection. Once you get the initial link, it gets more comfortable since your phone will already recognize the device.
The fitness tracker will automatically, when it's within range, send your data right over to the app on your phone. From here, you'll be able to monitor your progress and see more extensive metrics on your daily activities.
Additionally, if you want to use the smartwatch features to receive notifications and phone calls to your wrist, you do need to be connected to your cell phone. These features do not work without a cell phone connection. Additionally, your phone has to be within the range, which is usually about 30 feet. This means that you can keep it in your pocket, but you shouldn't wander too far away from it.
Overall, it has a pretty decent connection, and there aren't too many customer complaints about it.
There are some mixed reviews when it comes to the accuracy of this product. The pedometer does a decent job at tracking your steps. However, keep in mind that since you're wearing it on your wrist, it's not going to be entirely as accurate as those that you wear on your hip. The step count isn't usually off by too much, so it isn't generally a problem.
One thing a majority of customers can agree on is at the heart rate seems relatively accurate. Again, there are better products if you need a precise heart rate, but for something that sits on your wrist, it doesn't a decent job. Since the heart rate is reasonably accurate, it's going to give you a better representation of how many calories you burned. Of course, this is assuming you input other important information correctly, such as your age, height, and weight. If you're trying to be active to lose weight measuring your calories in versus calories out is important, so this becomes a useful tool.
Yes, few customers didn't think the watch was as accurate as it could be. However, the majority of consumers were pleased with the metrics they got and how precise they were.
All of that said, keep in mind that this is a budget version of a smartwatch and fitness tracker. They're going to be far better quality products out there that are probably going to last a little bit longer for you. Consider the fact that the affordable cost of this watch might need to be replaced sooner than if you spent a little bit of extra money on a better quality product. However, most consumers are happy with the longevity of the smartwatch.
Many reviewers have mentioned that the use of this application is fairly user-friendly. Long as you connect your fitness tracker to your smartphone via Bluetooth connection, they should automatically sync so you can retrieve your data. Additionally, you can customize the look and user interface on the watch itself. There are a variety of different watch faces that will give you unique Styles as well as customizable stats. All this is done right through the Fitpolo app on your phone.
Some customers even stated that they can use this tracker with some of their other favorite running apps. It might not be compatible with everything, but you might be able to find it on some of your other fitness or running apps.
The watch face isn't the smallest when compared to some other products. However, most people don't have a problem with that. It doesn't feel bulky or heavy on your wrist and doesn't get in the way of your everyday activities. Additionally, most consumers can sleep with it on with ease. This is important because it's going to track your sleep. I can't do that if you're not wearing it to bed.
There are four different color options that you can choose from. You can pick from black and blue, black and grey, black and green, or black and orange.
The fitness tracker does come with a charger. Thankfully it doesn't use a proprietary charger, uses a regular USB charger. It makes it so much easier if you need to replace your cord for any reason.
As you would expect, it tracks your sleep, heart rate, steps, calories, distance, and duration of workouts. Additionally, as long as you are connected to your smartphone, you can receive notifications from Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Instagram, in Snapchat. You can also receive phone calls and your text message notifications, as well as calendar events.
Whether you're trying to get healthy, working on fitness goals, or keep track of your everyday activities, and this is going to be the perfect product for you.
