Let’s get this out of the way early: I’m not a very “fit” person. I’ve never really been to a gym, and the very idea of a “workout” scares e to death. That being said, I know the value of a good step counter, and I figured having a tool like this would be a benefit. Yes, the Lintelek Fitness Counter counts steps accurately, but I was pleasantly surprised by the whole package.
Out of the box, the two band color options made for a professional and slick looking package, and even before talking about the function, the product looks good on my wrist. Charging is simple, and the battery life claim of 5-7 days appears to be accurate. Setting up the Bluetooth and iPhone app was simple, and we were off and running in no time…well for me it’s more of a brisk walk, but you get the idea.
The app that accompanies the device is a bit…..imperfect for American consumers. There are some clear inconsistencies with the translation to English that confused the hell out of me. It took me almost two days to figure out what “raise your hand bright screen” meant in the options, but eventually much of this was a non-issue. The app’s strength comes from the sheer bounty of options which can each be toggled on or off to provide a customized experience. Everything from text/call notifications to twitter and WhatsApp can be toggled for a wrist notification, all alongside the handy smart watch style interface. I wasn’t expecting something that could handle text alerts when I was sent this fitness tracker, but this introduction to smart watches was very welcomed indeed. The health options are also customizable allowing for on-demand or timed readings of heart rate, blood pressure and blood oxygen levels. There are more in-depth options with sleep timers and exercise calculations that will keep me busy for quite some time.
Overall, I highly recommend this tracker. Not only for its ability as a fitness tool, but for the fully competent introduction to smart watches that will make you feel both comfortable and stylish at the same time. Before you go blowing your rent money on an Apple product, give these guys a try.
Your wrist and wallet may thank you.
