VeryFit 2.0 Smartband (aka ID107 Smart Watch) review

The VeryFit 2.0 Smartband, or the ID107 Smart Watch as it is also known, is a water resistant device that allows you to monitor your health and exercise routine in a simple way. The wrist flick works even when it is put to the test while you are training intensely, which shows that this is a powerful, long lasting solution that provides reliable performance, even if it is raining. However, it is important to note that it is not water proof and while it can resist splashing and rain, it can’t be worn under water. The VeryFit 2.0 Smartband comes with a fantastic selection of functions that combined, allow you to get a great deal of information about your health. Below you will find a list of the features supported:

  • Step pedometer – Count the steps taken during your walks
  • Sleep monitor – Keep track of your sleep
  • Heart rate monitor – It includes a sensor that faces wrist to detect heartrate
  • Call alert – The smartband vibrates to notify you about incoming calls
  • Remote shoot – You can take photos by simply pressing the watch
  • Wrist sense – For flick
  • Distance measure – Check the distance traveled
  • Sedentary reminder – If you have been sitting still for too much time, the smartband vibrates to prompt you to continue with your exercise routine
  • Calorie tracker – Helps you to keep track on calories, based on weight, height and steps or movement
  • Time – Basic watch function
  • Alarm – It wakes you up using a silent mode so that the person sleeping next to you won’t be disturbed.
  • Anti-lost feature – This will notify you if you are too far from your phone. It vibrates and displays a phone symbol to indicate that the phone is at a large distance from your watch. This will help you to avoid forgetting the phone, leaving it on a table or in a different room.

The app

The VeryFit 2.0 app that you install and pair with the ID107 smart band offers a good set of configuration options that allow you to customize the alerts. You can adjust the settings for the Silent Alarm, enable or disable the Wrist Flick and other functions. The watch buzzes when you receive phone calls or texts, but this is optional. If you get a lot of texts and calls, it would be advisable to only keep the vibration for some alarms, otherwise it may be too much. You can disable wrist sense at night, if preferred. This will avoid that your movement as you roll while you sleep activates the watch. Keep in mind that it is not possible to adjust the brightness of the watch’s display or to make it stay on for longer. The wrist flick enables it for just 2 seconds before shutting it off, unless you tap on the screen. The button on the side leaves the watch on for around 5 seconds and provides additional time to press the screen. It may not be a big deal, but some users may have preferred to have the option to choose for how long they want the watch display to stay on.

The anti-lost feature can be convenient as it prompts your watch to vibrate when you walk away (over 20′) from your phone. If you forget your phone and leave it behind in a restaurant or somewhere else, it is practical to have this option that will let you know that you don’t have your phone with you. The wrist buzzes to remind you to get your phone. Once the smartband detects that the phone is not within the distance limit, it starts buzzing, as long as you have the anti-lost feature enabled.

Another practical option is the Sedentary Alarm, which reminds you to stay active and to avoid being still for too long. Even if you spend most of the time sitting in front of your desk due to work, it is important to stand up from time to time and even to take some time to walk. It is possible to adjust the time so that the sedentary alert only goes off at specific intervals. When the watch detects that you haven’t taken any steps for quite some time, it vibrates to make sure that you get up and take at least a short walk.

Is it worth considering?

The VeryFit 2.0 is a good solution to improve your fitness and keep an eye on your health. You can set up targets to make sure that you walk as much as needed and the watch’s helpful reminders will help you to stick to your goals and achieve them. There is also an option to take a photo lets you capture a snapshot using your phone. It mainly works if you have your phone on a tripod, instead of in your hands. While the VeryFit 2.0 app had some sync issues in the past, particularly with iOS, it has been updated and you should be able to sync with your iPhone without problem.

Since the VeryFit Smartband is affordable and it supports a wide selection of features, it is an option that deserves to be considering. After all, it allows you to keep track of different aspects that let you maintain a healthier lifestyle. The app is good and it lets you manage different watch functions. However, the VeryFit Smartband doesn’t pair with third-party apps. This may be disappointing if you have a favorite health and fitness app that you would like to sync to get data to and from the device. If you are looking for a basic tracker that lets you monitor different aspects of your health, this is a convenient solution to try.
