New band from Cubot (updating the V1). Review linked below.
On a two day flash sale at Gearbest - they say they won't ship till Nov 26th and it will come unregistered air mail with the free delivery option. You can pay extra for faster delivery etc. They show estimated delivery times and prices during checkout and you can choose then, as well as getting delivery insurance.
At £11.99 there shouldn't be any additional tax or customs charge. It sounds like a contender for the Mi Band 2 which is usually around £19 on offer. The flash sale offer is only for the black version. If you're a new customer and register with Gearbest (during checkout), you get 60 points which can be used on the order when you activate the account and log back in - that reduces the cost by another 95p. Payment was shown and taken in pounds although their email receipt showed dollar values.
Features of the band include:
- All-weather heart rate monitor: it can monitor your heartbeat during the day
- Sports trail track: combined with mobile phone GPS, it will real-time record your sports trail, distance, calories consumed, steps, etc., not only a pedometer function
- Intelligent remind: including alarm, calls, SMS, sedentary reminder, intelligent anti-lost (if your phone goes out of range), etc, not only vibration but also screen display. If you get a call, it will display the caller's name, or the caller's ID if he / she is a stranger
- Share your data with your friends on the WeChat, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
- Remote camera: control the smartphone and take photos within 6m distance, and front and back camera
- 30 days data store
- 0.88 inch OLED screen with 128 x 32 resolution
- Splashproof (not waterproof)
- Sedentary reminder (encourages you to move around)
- Soft TPU strap, adjustable length 120-210mm.
