The not so good This tracker is for iOS 7.1 & Android 4.4 above, and does not connect with PC’s or tablets. You can wear the tracker when running in rain and washing hands, but should not be worn when showering, swimming, or diving. Some complaints were, the screen wasn’t bright enough and could be difficult to read in sunlight. There were some complaints about the heart rate monitor not being as accurate as would be expected and the step counter reacting to arm movements (giving higher readings).

Final thoughts The LETSCOM Fitness Tracker is a budget fitness tracker with some good features.

It would be great if it were waterproof, as I’m sure people would like to track calories while swimming.

It’s cheap enough to give a try and if it doesn’t work out you’ll get a replacement or money back. If you’re interested you can check it out here.
