Before you start using the Letscom ID130HR Fitness Tracker you will need to charge your device for 10 minutes.  To do this pull apart the watch strap from the middle section, the USB is under the touch key button.

You need to ensure that you insert the USB part of the fitness tracker correctly into a USB charger, if done correctly your fitness tracker will momentarily vibrate to alert you it’s charging along with a red light.

In the meantime, whilst your tracker is on charge you can start to download the “VeryFitPro” app from the App Store for iOS devices, or Google Play for Android devices.

Requirements.

The Letscom ID130HR has some system requirements of iOS 7.1 and above or Android 4.4 and above.

After 10 minutes you can remove the fitness tracker from the charger.

You will need to ensure you have enabled Bluetooth devices on your smartphone, this will be under your settings section and look for Bluetooth and ensure that it has been enabled.

Search for “ID130HR” and pair the fitness tracker to your device.

Next open the app on your phone and set up an account, you can input details without creating an account, but if you later set up an account it wipes the previous inputted data.  So best to create an account to start off with.

To scroll through the different options on the tracker press the touch key button on the front near to the bottom.  You can scroll through Step Mode, Heart Rate, Alarm, Walk, Run, Bike.  To go into further menu’s press and hold on each of the main menu’s.

Letscom ID130HR Menu Options.

Step Mode – This mode will accurately record your daily activities like steps, distance, calories burned and active minutes.

Heart Rate Mode – This mode will automatically record your heart in beats per minute.

Alarm Mode – This mode can be set up in the app, once set up you can turn it on/off using the fitness tracker.

Walk Mode – Taking a walk? press this mode for 2 seconds to start recording your walking.

Run Mode – The same as walk mode, but for the runners.

Bike Mode – Press this for 2 seconds prior to cycling to accurately record and monitor your activity progress.

Using the tracker.

You can set up the Letscom ID130HR tracker to show your incoming calls, SMS, email, or App alerts.  I’m using an iPhone and I can receive notifications for calls and SMS only.  I can receive some email alerts but only if I have the email sender added to my VIP list, it doesn’t work for all other email contacts.  I also couldn’t get it to work for other notifications like Facebook.  You can’t answer calls or reply to messages using this fitness tracker.

Another cool feature of the Letscom ID130HR is the ability to take photographs using the app.  Simply open the Very Fit Pro App and go to the camera menu.  You can now snap photographs using your fitness tracker.

I found upon opening the Very Fit Pro app needed to be synchronised to collect the data from the fitness tracker by holding whilst scrolling down and releasing.

The Letscom ID130HR automatically lights up the screen when you turn your wrist towards you and shows you the time and your daily step count.

Conclusion.

The Letscom ID130HR is a budget fitness tracker, which works quite well.  It can easily compete with larger more expensive brands and both the tracker and the app work well.  I have been wearing my Letscom ID130HR for over 8 days and still have 30% battery left, so it can last longer than the advertised 7 days.  If you want a basic and easy to use fitness tracker then the Letscom ID130HR is for you.  The heart rate on the tracker can be a little off sometimes and show a higher than normal count, but if you open the app you will see a more accurate recording.

More colours are available, you can choose Black, Blue, Green, Grey, Purple or Red.

If you want the Letscom ID130HR for yourself it is available only on Amazon and comes with a full 12 Month Warranty.  The RRP for this tracker is £39.99.

  1. Hi Darren Well written and pretty thorough. Like most reviews though the question of does it do what it should and how well eg. the accuracy of the data like sleep quality and steps. I was particularly interested in HR and tested a wrist tracker from 3 companies. They are all great at measuring resting HR compared with an accurate chest HR monitor but almost useless during moderate to intense exercise. This is a recognised problem with all green light LED optical HR monitors and Fitbit in the USA is currently undergoing law suits. I sent my trackers back. Pity thst reviews don’t focus more on whether the information derived from products is freshly helpful or meaningful. The general public likes to believe that they are buying a bargain and believe what the blissfully believe the data the device tells them. Regards, George.

    1. Hi George, thank you for your comment. The accuracy is probably not 100% true, as i found the HR monitor on the band to be off when you first select the option on the menu, however it does look more accurate via the App, again though it’d probably a guideline reading and not 100% accurate like you would get from a doctor. I think this band like many others are for a rough guide and can’t be relied upon 100%. I’m just the author and can’t say for certain, but what i found is the band to be good value for money and a good indication piece rather than an accurate medical device.

  2. Hi I just got the letsfit ID130HR for 2 main reasons HR and sleep tracker due to health issues the only problem I’m having is the sleep tracker is still on zero. How do I get it to start tracking my sleep as I have definitely been asleep. Hope you can help me

    1. Hi Lucy,

      Thank you for leaving a comment. Firstly have you created an account on the VeryFit Pro App? Also have you tried to refresh the app when you open it up? I have found sometimes the data has not been synchronized across automatically and needs a manual refresh in the app, to do this press and hold and in a scrolling down motion the page will start to synchronize, you should see the sleep data appear if successful. Hope this helps you, if not feel free to come back to me and i will see what i can do to help.

    1. Hi Mary,

      The watch will display the correct date/time upon successful Bluetooth connection. What phone do you have? i might be able to assist you in connecting your device.

      Darren

    1. Hi Mary,

      Firstly, have you set up an account on the VeryFitPro App? If you have you might need to simply refresh from within the App, to do this press and hold and in a scrolling down motion and the page will start to synchronize.

      Please note I’m not the manufacturer of this fitness tracker nor a seller, i simply do the review.

      I hope my advice has helped, but if not, you should contact the manufacturer directly to address the issue.
      Darren

    1. Hi Kari,

      Thank you for leaving me a comment. I will try and help you. Have you set up from with the VeryFitPro App to receive email? this is a toggle switch called SNS Alert. I’m not too sure about an Android device as I tested mine using an iPhone, but to get email notifications I had to set up VIP contacts using the email address from within my mail service. Android users might have to do the same, find an email contact from within your emails and set it to a VIP or priority contact. Hopefully this should work.
      Please note I’m not the manufacturer of this fitness tracker nor a seller, i simply do the review.

  3. Everything works on my fitness tracker except for receiving my text messages. I have it turned in the app but it still won’t buzz my tracker. I have an iPhone 7 Plus. The call notifier does work fine. Thanks for any help you can give! Polly

    1. Hi Polly,

      That’s strange! Have you allowed the App to send you notifications in your phone’s security menus? Take a look by going on your iPhone to the following menus. Settings > Notifications > VeryFitPro > Allow Notifications.

      Also, I know you’ve said that you set it on the app but please double check that you’ve clicked the “Tick” symbol in the top right of the VeryFitPro screen after toggling the alerts on.

      Hope this helps.
      Darren

    1. Hi Kerrie,

      Thank you for your comment. The time should be updated automatically as the fitness band is synchronised up with your smartphone, have you tried refreshing from within the App?
      Regards
      Darren

  4. Thanks for your review! Do you know of any other apps that work with this band? Very Fit Pro seems to have made some updates that cause battery drain. Even with it disabled from running in the background it still does. Thanks in advance for your help!

    1. Hi Tracy,

      Thank you for your comment, I think currently you can only use the VeryFit Pro App for this model, but I have some new bands coming up for review over the next couple of weeks that use different apps such as iBand, HBand, and Weafit 2.0. So possibly it could become opens over time. Have you tried to turn off the Geo Tracking from within the App? as this causes the most battery drain.

      Darren

  5. Great review, thanks for all the info. I’ve managed to get everything working except my sleep. It didn’t record any sleep. It could be because I have a sync error. It goes to 80% then says sync failed. Also in the Top Today bit the message is the server is running low. I have a full internet signal. Any ideas please?

    1. Hi Debby,

      Thank you for your nice message. That’s strange, have you set this up from within the VeryFitPro App? And confirmed this setting with the Tick symbol at the top right of the screen?
      Have you tried the following sync method Open VeryFitPro App > User Icon (On Bottom Bar) > Synchronize Now.
      Darren

      1. Hi Darren
        Thanks for your quick response. I removed the app and started again. It now syncs fine but still didn’t record my sleep pattern – yes I went back to sleep lol

  6. Hi Darren, I purchased this a couple of days ago to keep tracks of my distance when running, I run with a friend sometimes and mine is always different? Is there a way to change stride size for better accurate?
    Kind Regards
    Chelsay

    1. Hi Chelsay,

      These fitness trackers use arm motion to determine distance travelled, maybe your friend is swinging their arm more than you whilst running 🙂

      Darren

      1. Haha maybe so, although hers is a gps type, so I’m presuming it’s pretty accurate. Think I need to invest in something simplier for accuracy?
        Thanks
        Chelsay

  7. Hi Darren,

    Any ideas why my sleep trackers thinks I’m going to bed at 11 everyday when mostly it’s 9.30 and sometimes even earlier.

    Thanks

    1. Hi Jay,

      It’s all controlled by motion, the tracker will sense when there’s no arm motion and presume you’re sleeping, you might find it records your sleep when there’s no movement.

      Darren

    2. I have the same problem. This device does not start tracking sleep until 11:00 pm every night. I don’t think it is arm motion because the tracker says I am in deep sleep starting right at 11:00 pm every night. Also, I don’t think my arm stops moving at the exact same minute every night and a full 90 minutes after I have fallen asleep. Very disappointing.

  8. Can you connect the letscom tracker to the sleep rate app. I have a sleeprate app and it says you can connect a fit bit or heart monitor ect to the app to track movements I just can’t seem to find where I can connect my letscom device. Many Thanks

    1. Hi Emma,

      I’m not sure, but I dont think the Letscom ID130HR will work as Apple only usually work with more mainstream companies (FitBit etc), why not contact Letscom support@letscom.com and ask them directly.

      Darren

  9. Hello.
    I brought this tracker .. been fine I woke up and looked and it says i have already done 165 steps and not even out of bed … do you know why this is or how I can find out please?

  10. Hi Darren

    My 3 main exercise are tread mill running, exercise bike and weights. I can’t change the 3 exercise activity’s on the tracker they are outdoor running, cycling and walking. Can they be changed or do I just use the app on my phone to track my exercise. When I’m on the app it asks me to remove the 3 before I can add but it won’t let me.

    Thanks

    1. Hi Lorelei,

      You can’t actually call or text of this tracker, it merely displays who’s calling and displays a text but you can’t reply or answer the call.
