they're normally around £20 so this is not really a special deal

I thought they are normally around 29.53 (i.e. using a US warehouse gets you that price). The flash sale is only for China warehouse.

This price sucks m8.


Why? Not seen it much lower yet, maybe 10% very briefly.

Are they any good anyway? I understand that the wrist type of heart rate monitor is not very good and doesn`t monitor reliably

i ordered 1 last Friday and i come yesterday, does exactly what them fitbits do at 5 times the price

​if you are thinking of monitoring the heart rate while you work out it may not be what you need. They don't work as effectively as the heart rate sensor belts that go on your chest. But to monitor your daily fitness with day to day activities e.g. how much are you walking, running, burning calories it would be good enough from my experience. Again at this price I won't complain if it lasts 6 months. I have a £100 Nike fuel band that didn't stand a few uses (washes) but I guess I was just unlucky.

got one for my mum as i had one and it was pretty good for under £30 but hers has got stuck on time mode and i cant get it off that mode touching the sensor just flashes the time up again

might buy another as they are really excellent little fitness trackers for the price a decent one here will cost 2 to 3 times as much and once the strap is broken your gadget finished thats how my jawbone 2 ended up

You could try enabling the 'Rotate wrist to switch info' option as a workaround. On iOS its found under Profile>"My Devices" then toggle on 'Lift wrist to view info' and 'Rotate wrist to switch info'

​Ohh dear. I placed an order in first week of december and still waiting. It looks like mine will come in February. I purchased insurance as well

I've had this watch for around 3 weeks. Still on the same charge since getting it. I use it with iPhone. And I think it's very good. No problems with it so far. Although I do feel that the heart rate sensor is a bit iffy as I have tried my gyms ones and the watch was no where near. Overall as a watch it's slick and simple very nice. Looking for an other strap aswell.
Heaaat.

​Im sure you checked this, but just in case. Have you checked on the phone app to make sure your Mum hasn't changed what's visible on the band ?(miband settings in profile)

It should only take a max of 35 days as per their website, however if you asked for expedited mail then you can send Gearbest a message along with your order reference. I ordered 2 in mid December and I'm expecting them mid January.

I paid £22 in early December with a free second wristband on Aliexpress so this is a great deal

Has anybody had any luck with vibrating notifications using with iOS?

The call vibrating notification works fine, and shows the callers name.

However, sms, whatsapp and email vibrate notifications don't work.

Any experience from iOS users please?

​Share link to that, as I couldn't find it.

ordered mine 14 Dec received 29 Dec better than expected with Xmas. All good so far but not worked out all it does yet. Worth the price in my opinion. Heat OP

Do you know you can set up this band for CALLER ID too ? You don't have to take your phone out of the pocket to see who is calling or texted you. I have been using for few months and I am 100℅ happy with it. btw battery last more than a month.

Short update for iOS users.

Vibrating notifications did not work for me.

Solved by unpairing band, signing out of app and rebooting phone.

All working fine after logging back in and pairing band.

how is the global version different?

​CE marked, and uses servers outside China. Apparently, firmware is more stable. Also, the manual is in English.

got mine and heart rate doesn't work at all. apparently a firmware issue but I can't find any fix

got one for xmas. DOA. Did obtain full refund from them so can't grumble. got an aldi one now, lets see how long it lasts.....

Still awaiting mine from placing mid December times, but slug delivery is to be expected - only had good experiences with gearbest!

Just got mine.. Ordered 7th December. Now I need to find some instructions so I can set time, etc.. Everything in the box (which is nicely presented) is Chinese.

Thanks, yes I got it sorted.. I was worried the firmware update would brick the unit as I know a few people have had problems following a firmware update, but all went well..

Just got mine, the step country seems to be massively inaccurate, but I haven't compared with others. Heart rate seems okay, but just comparing with my Samsung phone's measurement. Call & msg notification seems to work but not all the time, while using with iPhone 6.
