ipegtop Vidonn X6s Fitness Tracker,Touch Key Accurate Sleeping Monitor Pedometer Smart Band Wireless Activity Wristband with OLED Calling and Text Display Bluetooth V4.0
I had another Vidonn fitness tracker once that I wore for the longest time until it broke, so I knew what I was getting into with the Vidonn X6s. I really like this fitness band because it’s slim and lightweight. It has metal prongs that worried me, but only at first. I thought the prongs would poke me or irritate me, but I can wear it all day and not really notice it’s on.
I like the large text display for the time. We can have it displayed horizontally or vertically. I chose horizontal. In addition to time, day, and date, it also displays steps, Calories burned, and meters walked. Text messages are understandably in much smaller font.
This is a water-resistant tracker that I’ve been wearing all day every day except when showering (it’s not waterproof). After more than a week, here’s what I’ve found:
The pedometer works rather well as an activity monitor. It is less likely than other activity trackers to falsely record arm movement as steps (I used it at the gym during upper body workout and it did not record steps for most arm exercises). When I walk and mentally count 100 steps, it comes up close. Considering we don’t calibrate this thing, I’m impressed.
The sleep monitoring is pretty spot on. We have to enter our normal bedtime into the system via the app, but when I look at the results, it’s an accurate reflection of how much I think I slept the night before.
I tried the anti-lost function to verify that it works (it does), but I quickly turned that off, because I’m often away from my phone and don’t want to be reminded that the phone is not glued to my hip.
What I do like is the messaging. Whenever I get a text, it shows up on the tracker. I don’t have to dig the phone out of my purse to see the messages or who is calling.
Most of it is good. I don’t care for the activity bar graph, because the bars are all over the place. I mean, the readings look accurate, but the bars themselves are not in any sort of order. The dates skip around and some dates are represented twice. I don’t get it.
Everything else is good, especially the alarm clock. I accidentally set one alarm to 2 AM instead of 2 PM and it woke me in middle of the night, vibrating strongly. Luckily, there’s no noise, and my husband didn’t wake up. This is a great feature if you want to set an alarm for yourself without waking your partner. Once the tracker is programmed, we don’t need to be near the phone for it to work. At least I wasn’t near my phone when the tracker woke me up.
I’m very happy with the new Vidonn tracker. I will be wearing this all day every day for as long as it works.
