VeryFit 2.0 Smartband Review also Known as the ID107 Smart Watch



ID107 Bluetooth Smart Watch Heart Rate Monitor Wristband

Review Summary:

This ID107 Smart Watch pairs with the Veryfit 2 app to track your steps, heartrate, sleep, and burned calories. It has other functions like Silent Alarm, Sedentary reminder, Anti-Lost Alert, Camera Snapshot, Wrist Flick, it is waterproof and you can even shower with it on. Overall it is an excellent very budget fitness band that is designed to help you track your steps, sleep and give a few extra features. I took 1 star off because the Sleep Data can't sync to my iPhone 5S though this is an app issue and not a watch issue, because it syncs with Android and other data syncs fine.

This is a review of the VeryFit 2.0 Smartband which is also sold as the ID107 Smart Watch over at Gearbest, but comes branded as the VeryFit 2.0.

Here is some video showing the VeryFit 2.0 wrist flick, and confirming it is indeed water resistant and showing that the wrist flick works even when running under a heavy flow of sink water directly on the smartband.

The Veryfit 2.0 Smartband includes a heart rate monitor (has sensor that faces wrist to detect heartrate), step pedometer, call alert (vibrates when calls come in), Remote shoot (press watch to snap camera pic), Sleep Monitor, Wrist Sense (for flick), Distance measure, Sedentary reminder (to vibrate and alert you when you have been sitting still too long), Calorie tracker (estimated based on weight, height and steps/movement), Time, Alarm (silently wake yourself without disturbing partner), finally it also has anti-lost for phone and will alert you if you and the phone are too distant, it gives you a vibe and shows a phone symbol indicating your phone is too far from your watch in case you leave it on a table or another room.

 

Check out the full video review

The VeryFit 2.0 application that you install and pair with the ID107 smart bracelet is functional enough, and gives you configurable options for Silent Alarm, Wrist Flick (enable/disable) and various other alerts.  This watch will buzz you when phone calls or text messages come in if you want, as well as SNS notifications but you can get vibration overload if your phone goes off frequently so for me, I just have it vibrate only for my AM alarms.  I will shut off wrist sense at night sometimes, because when you are sleeping and roll over your movement of your arm can make the watch wake up and you get a bright glow in the middle of the night, there is no option to adjust brightness display of the watch nor to allow it to stay on longer.  The wrist flick literally turns it on for 2 seconds and it shuts off fast, unless you tap a screen really quick.  The side button leaves the watch on for about 5-6 seconds and gives you more time to react and press the screen, but it would have been nice if you can configure how long the watch screen stays on, an extra second or two would have been better.

Silent Alarm on VeryFit2

The Anti-Lost is neat, and causes your watch to vibrate if you walk more than about 20′ from your phone,  this is a good option if you happen to be out at a restaurant and you accidentally leave your phone on a table, you can make sure your wrist buzzes and you don’t forget your phone.  I had this feature enabled a few times and when doing my laundry I left my phone on my desk and as I was stepping out with my basket of clothes to go to the laundry room, the watch went crazy and I forgot that I had Anti-lost alert enabled.

The Sedentary Alarm is also decent, I work 10 hours a day in front of my desk and though I get up frequently for drinks, occasionally I can go 1-2 hours without standing up at all, I setup my sedentary alert for 45 minutes and if your watch detects you haven’t taken any steps in that time, it will vibrate to remind you to get up and walk around a little bit.  This is ideal for people who zone out while they work, like programmers or even gamers who sit for hours, this reminder may help make sure you get a few extra steps or move around a bit.

Since wearing the Veryfit 2.0 smartwatch, I found myself caring more about how many steps I was taking per day, my target was 10,000 after bumping it, but the only day I reached that amount was when I went to the Rennaissance Fair, most days I hovered around 5,000 or 6,000 steps.  But it had me thinking more and I would take a few extra walks with the dog just to try and bump my steps up a bit for a few days.  Finally the Take Photo option was interesting, where your watch can take the snapshot with your phone.  It works primarily if you have your phone on a tripod or not in your hands, since you cant twist your wrist and press your watch face easily while holding the phone.  This was presumably in case you wanted to take remote pictures of yourself.

When I first received the watch the Step Data wouldn’t sync with VeryFit 2 app at all, but Gearbest contacted software maker and they released an update which fixed the iPhone Step data sync, however the Sleep Data still doesn’t sync with my iPhone 5S but does with Android fine (HTC One Remix).  So I am positive this is an app/software issue, not a watch issue and hoping they fix it, because right now if you own an iPhone I don’t think it will capture your sleep data.  Sleep data was important to me, and my other smartband I was reviewing (which I don’t like as much) does capture sleep data and I don’t want to wear 2 smartbands.

Veryfit 2 Syncing with iOS Now after Update

Overall at less than $20 the Veryfit Smartband is an excellent way to keep track of steps, heartrate and the app is decent.  Note though, this smartband will not pair with other applications, it only pairs with Veryfit 2 and syncs its data to the Health app, but it won’t be recognized by other applications and feed data into them, I have tried several and readers ask me all the time to try different ones and they don’t work.  So it doesn’t universally send data to any heath based iOS or Android app, only Veryfit 2 it reliably works with.  Most apps will write data to iOS Health app, but don’t read data back from it, so if you have a favorite health tracking app, it may not be compatible with this smart watch.

Sleep Data Won’t Sync at Time of Review

WARNING: This watch is not waterproof, only water resistant. It can be subject to splashing, rain…etc. I just toasted my review unit because I left it on in the shower and water got into the sensor part which touches the wrist and I completely destroyed my review unit.

    Thanks for the review. What exactly is SNS alarm? Is this where you can set it up to vibrate for FB Messenger, iMessage, Whatsapp, Skype, etc? Thanks

    • Justin Germino May 20, 2016 at 7:13 pm - Reply

      Yes, SNS stands for Simple Notification Service, or Social Networking Service and yeah, it is the notification from most social apps.

      • Robert N May 20, 2016 at 7:14 pm - Reply

        Thanks for the quick reply. It’s hard to find much info. Can you tell me what services it works for?

        • Justin Germino May 20, 2016 at 7:29 pm

          When you open up the SNS portion in the Veryfit 2 app it shows you can enable it for: Facebook, Wechat, QQ, Twitter, Whatsapp, Linked In, Instagram, Facebook Messenger. Those are only apps you can enable SNS reminder for.

    hi. i read it somewhere that said the calories function isnt accurate? is this true?

    • Justin Germino May 25, 2016 at 9:25 am - Reply

      To be honest virtually no calorie burn tracker is accurate, they estimate based on weight, age and movement and heart rate. But people have different metabolic rates, so I would always take calorie burn as just a general estimate. I wouldn’t ever count on their accuracy but this one is about as accurate as the ones you find on treadmills and elliptical machines that do it based on heartbeat and weight/age.

    I just received my ID107 today. i hope it track the heart rate accurate. BTW Sir, Justin Germino nice review on this fitband.

    • Justin Germino May 30, 2016 at 7:15 am - Reply

      Thank you, again heart rate is about as accurate as one of those treadmill machines with the sensor bar where you hold your hand on to read your heart rate.

        Hi Justin,
        Would you know what the guarantee is on these please?? I’ve only had mine 1 month and its also giving me issues, no green heartrate light and the spanner -2 is coming up and has just switched off!
        Would you happen to know the company and who i can email! I have contacted Aliexpress where i bought it….:-/

        • Justin Germino October 18, 2016 at 12:16 pm

          It really depends on where you bought the watch from, this watch is on sale at Amazon, Gearbest and other retailers. If you bought it from Gearbest which is brand I did the review of http://www.gearbest.com/about/warranty-and-return.html#item4 it has a 45 day return and a 1 year repair warranty I believe. So you would contact Gearbest to process repair or replacement. If you bought from Amazon check the warranty period there…etc.

      NOT water proof??? I am like showered when running or training for some time. That means i cant monitor my heart rate when training if i am sweating?

      • Justin Germino June 28, 2016 at 3:15 pm - Reply

        It is IP65 Waterproof which means it can resist splashes, sweat, but cannot be submerged in water. You can run it under a sink, showering with it is how I eventually broke it, I had it under too much sustained water for too long.

        • Joker July 7, 2016 at 2:02 pm

          Thank you for answer-the watch works after after training and it looks resistant to this.
          But now a new question: The watch records my pulse very accurate even when i am not wearing it.
          I left on the table last days and i have 24 hour heartrate which looks same as when wearing it?!? Means my table has pulse from about 70 to 95 over the day.
          Can i turn off the watch when not using it?

  5. Dennis Robinson June 1, 2016 at 7:08 am - Reply

    My only real issue with the wrist band is that the screen display is nothing like bright enough to see if there is the least bit of sun peeping through. I take it that there is no way of increasing the brightness?

    • Justin Germino June 1, 2016 at 4:17 pm - Reply

      No, I have this issue as well, the slightest bit of sun and you can’t see the screen at all, Nothing can be done here, need to walk in the shade or cover watch with something to see watch face 🙁

    Does this App work with any fitness tracker that has blue tooth connectivity?

    • Justin Germino June 5, 2016 at 5:51 pm - Reply

      No, unfortunately I have tried based on others asking. Other apps won’t recognize the ID107/Veryfit bracelet, only the Veryfit 2 app will.

      • Jan Courtois June 23, 2016 at 2:36 pm - Reply

        ok, no other apps can connect. But sync with google fit does work fine or not?

        • Justin Germino June 24, 2016 at 7:57 am

          On the HTC One Remix it syncs all data with Google Fit fine.

    • moralesnery June 17, 2016 at 7:24 am - Reply

      The band can’t be used with fitness tracker apps, BUT Veryfit 2.0 app can sync the band info to Google Fit. From Google Fit you can track your activities (lots of different activities).

      Tried to use the band directly with RunKeeper and Runtastic without success.

    Hi… do you know how to start the sleep monitor? I have been trying but I have not been able to start monitoring it. Thanks!

    • Justin Germino June 5, 2016 at 10:34 pm - Reply

      What phone are you using with it? It won’t track sleep on iOS/iPhone only Android. You simply enable it on Sources tab and it should start tracking on Android.

      • Charlie Rogers June 13, 2016 at 7:51 pm - Reply

        Mine has been. Seems like it just goes into sleep mode when you’ve set the alarm and doze off. I’m not sure it is a setting, I think it just monitors heart rate and movement and sets itself off.

    • Fogash73 August 8, 2016 at 6:11 am - Reply

      it recognizes your non-moving state

  8. Charlie Rogers June 13, 2016 at 7:45 pm - Reply

    Anyone else had sync failure after a week or two of using it? I’ve tried removing the bluetooth pairing, deleting and re-installing the app, and using unbind/re-bind in the app. Also downloaded veryfit and the veryfit 2.0 app (which I started on) – both ask me to choose a device, they put a green tick next to the device, then….. nothing.
    Using iphone 6 on latest versions of iOS.

    • Charlie Rogers June 13, 2016 at 8:16 pm - Reply

      After deleting the app twice, and re-installing, it has hooked up correctly. This time around an “OK” button appears on the bind screen, instead of just “refresh”
      Seems to have maintained the data from the watch as well. which is a bonus – not an ideal user experience, but mostly a good one – bar the sync/bind issues.

  9. Anon Raw June 20, 2016 at 1:12 pm - Reply

    Does anyone know if the device can be programmed, i.e. can I easily write an Android app to send an image to the watch screen, to make it vibrate etc….? This would be extremely handy for cycling trips as one could e.g. write an extension for OSMAnd or another navigation app so that the smartphone running OSMAnd could send notifications to the wrist band e.g. in the form of left and right arrows which appear on the wrist a few hundred meters before a turn etc.
    But that’s just the tip of the iceberg: it would make the device much, much more usable.

    • Justin Germino June 22, 2016 at 7:30 am - Reply

      No, this device supports no programming, nor could it display anything but the standard screens for HR, Steps, Calories and Time.

      • Anon Raw July 14, 2016 at 6:10 am - Reply

        Thanks for the answer, Justin, How do you know this?

        • Justin Germino July 14, 2016 at 6:56 am

          I pass all questions to Gearbest and they contact the brand, as I also was using the watch for 6 weeks before I drowned it, I tested everything that could be done with it too.

        • Fogash73 August 8, 2016 at 6:11 am

          Hello Justin,

          a question, if you tested if widely:
          there is a training-mode: pressing the side button longer than 2sec, than double-click starts and stops this mode. Do you know if we can save/archive this training, or it resets automatically when exiting this mode?

  10. Willie P June 20, 2016 at 2:58 pm - Reply

    hi my heart rate monitor stopped working and i now get an extra icon after the calorie counter. This is a spanner with the number 2 beside it….any ideas please?

    • Charlie Rogers June 22, 2016 at 7:28 am - Reply

      I’ve just had this start for me today. I’m done multiple restarts of the device, and updated the app to the latest version. No progress. It’s added the “spanner (symbol) -02” after the alarm time as scroll through the options, and it stopped saving HR data around 8 hours ago. Requesting HR via the device doesn’t fire up the LEDs.
      Given my previous issues with the device and app, I’m somewhat sceptical about it as a purchase. The only thing I haven’t done is delete the app – last time it (obviously) killed my historical data. There is almost no information on this device online outside of this page, and sales pages.

      • Zsolt Fazekas July 16, 2016 at 1:02 pm - Reply

        I face the very same problem. The leds don’t emit the green light. HR monitor doesn’t work. I didn’t find any help to overcome this issue.

    • Justin Germino June 24, 2016 at 7:56 am - Reply

      I never an into this, sorry but I don’t know how to resolve it? Did you try a hard reset?

      • Charlie Rogers June 26, 2016 at 7:19 pm - Reply

        I think I’ve tried everything aside from deleting the app – which would kill all the data. may yet be the only option, but I’m struggling to see how re-installing the app would affect the watch’s ability to read Heart Rate…

        How can we restrict the band from recording steps data while driving ?? Even while driving , the band is recording every sort of data which will hamper the accuracy after sync to phone or tablet.

    • Justin Germino July 1, 2016 at 9:32 am - Reply

      I fried my band in the shower but it should be tracking steps except by arm movements, it should not be tracking steps when driving as it requires the swinging arm movements and movement and doesn’t track step alone based on distance traveled. Unfortunately I can’t help much more as I broke my device, but to power it off hold button on right long enough and it powers off.

      • SA M IR July 4, 2016 at 9:47 am - Reply

        Thankx for the reply bro. But, without swinging also, it tracks movements while in drive. And i need to unbind it each time i am about to drive which is not so applicable . And yes, it doesnt gets off either by pressing the right switch for long period of time. Is there any other way to switch it off?

  12. Mellyren July 2, 2016 at 8:14 pm - Reply

    Hi, on the homepage on the app, there is a symbol on the top right hand corner that looks like chains/links. When I press it it does absolutely nothing. Does anyone have any idea what it is? I’m running a karma active band on veryfit 2.0, it’s not HR so could may well be something to do with that.
    It’s just really frustrating me and I won’t write my review until I know everything! 😅
    Thanks.

    • Stacey Fleming July 18, 2016 at 9:40 am - Reply

      It means “linked”. If the chain is complete – the phone is paired with the watch. If it’s broken, the phone is more than 30′ from the watch and the bluetooth connection is missing.

    The calorie tracker is based on weight, height and steps. Isn’t calories bunt calculated based on heart beat is more representative (not necessarily more accurate)? For example, when a gymer does a dead lift, the heart rate can go up to 140 bpm for say 3 minutes. The calories burnt is calculated to be 70kCal, however the ID107 may not record any calories burnt because no steps have been made. Is this true?

    • Justin Germino July 4, 2016 at 7:32 am - Reply

      Correct, no steps means this watch will not record any calories burned, no smartwatch will estimate the calories burned at rest to my knowledge. Calorie trackers are only estimates, there are too many factors like metabolism, height, weight, and so many other random genetic components which control how many calories the human body burns at rest, so it is impossible to base on heart rate alone. This uses a very loose general rule for comparing heart rate and steps, but won’t use heart rate alone to estimate calories burned so won’t show any unless there are steps.

      Unpair the device from the VeryFit 2.0 app, then repair it and resync it. You can also hold the side button down for like 20 seconds and cause it to do a hard reset.

    So I’ve had this band for a while now (ID107) as well as the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S and the TW64 Pro, and when I used them in conjunction with say Google Fit or other fitness apps that track my exercise through GPS, the ID107 is always the one that marks the least calories burned. Anyone else having this same problem? or have any idea as to why this happens? I have the same stats set to all of them (weight, height, age, etc…)

    For example today I went for a run and the results were as follow:
    Xiaomi Mi Band 1S marked: 3.84 KM., 00:36:55 mins., 320Cal., 5,694 steps
    Google Fit App: 4.59 KM., 00:42:04 mins., 359Cal., 3,835 Steps
    ID107: 3.85 KM., 234Cal., 5,584 Steps
    TW64 Pro: 3.04 KM., 319Cal., 6,085 Steps

    as you can see the distance traveled and the steps are very similar between the Xiaomi Mi Band 1S and ID107, however the calories are quite significantly different!!!

    and this happens everyday the difference between the calories between one and the others is very significant at least from my point of view…

    P.S. I was wearing all of them on my left arm and my cellphone was also on my left arm…

    • Justin Germino July 14, 2016 at 6:54 am - Reply

      I can’t answer how they company does calculations for calories, you can leave that question on the gearbest product page they have gotten in touch with the brand manufacturer before for answers. I can tell you that any calorie tracker in general from a wrist fitband is highly subjective and very general with a huge margin for error, I would trust one that shows lower than higher. The estimated number of calories burned is very dependant on weight, but the average say is 44 calories per 1000 steps as a good measure.

      • Vlad Piero July 14, 2016 at 7:48 am - Reply

        Thank you very much! =D
        I will try to contact them and see if they can provide an answer but you’re right in that they’re probably all wrong…I just need to figure out which one is closest to the truth 🙂

    • Fogash73 August 8, 2016 at 6:02 am - Reply

      I think calories are calculated from your bodyweight (bodymass in moving), bodyheight (lentgh of 1 step) and hearthrate. Did you set all these similarly in the relevant apps? If yes, than I have no idea, if no, than this might be the reason for differences.

      • Mel23 October 14, 2016 at 6:31 am - Reply

        I was at the gym and my veryfit was showing I’ve burnt 200 calories and this girl next to me with a garmin watch and its says she burnt 500 calories she was exacly same body than me

        • Justin Germino October 14, 2016 at 6:51 am

          What activity was being done and for how long, this will tell you which is being closer to accurate. As a rule it takes a significant amount of energy expenditure to burn 500 calories. http://www.shape.com/fitness/workouts/workout-routines-calories-burned-during-exercise also what model garmin watch. Some watches can track vertical movement (altimeter) not just steps, so if any climbing, steps…etc. were involved they could be more accurate.

        • Mel23 October 14, 2016 at 6:54 am

          I do understand it but we did spin for an hour! its was really intense so…and i say 200 but it was less actually says i ‘ve burn 280 in all day and i also did 6175 steps so…

        • Justin Germino October 14, 2016 at 7:01 am

          This watch can’t work well for cycling especially on stationary bike, if your arms and hands are on a handle bar, this watch can’t detect movement. It still requires the sway of arms, it can’t just know that your legs are moving, this cheap $20 watch is not designed for tracking stationary cycling. It mostly leverages an accelerometer and some say having them on your leg is only way to track cycling movements, can’t keep them on arms. This watch can’t get GPS/Distance or any other metric that would track movement when you are stationary just peddling legs. I did some research and there aren’t that many fitness watches that are great at tracking stationary cycling, but there are some and this watch isn’t one of them.

        • Mel23 October 14, 2016 at 7:03 am

          I see!! I guess I gonna return it and get a garmin one from gumtree . cheers!

      Mine is still not functional on HR. A complaint to the company I bought it from was unsuccessful at first, but now they’re sending me a new one. Fingers crossed this one is a better experience. I’ll probably lose all my data though.

      • Justin Germino July 18, 2016 at 7:38 am - Reply

        If the data synced to your phone already and your VeryFit app you won’t lose the data by switching to a new watch, only any data on the watch that wasn’t synced would be lost.

        • Charlie Rogers July 18, 2016 at 6:44 pm

          Random. I thought about that after I posted! Provided it is the same unit I’m hoping you’re right 🙂

        • Charlie Rogers July 25, 2016 at 7:45 pm

          And…. We’re wrong. When I clicked “bind new device” on the app, all previous data on steps and sleep, all alarms, all settings around wrist sense, SMS alert, etc – GONE.
          Annoying but not much can be done.

        • Charlie Rogers October 17, 2016 at 7:45 pm

          I ordered via a website, so I finally got around to reviewing the product, was scathing, and they sent me a replacement.
          The replacement works fine, I’m avoiding getting it wet (aside from sweat) but I don’t have much faith in their HR measurements. Good for an overview, but questionable accuracy.

    hi, I can’t pair this watch to a motorola G 2014. tried it with two phones but none of them will pair with the device. To an iphone or samsung the watch showed no problems.
    Anyone has the the same problem or can help me out?

    • Justin Germino July 19, 2016 at 1:01 pm - Reply

      I was able to pair with HTC One Remix and iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 without issue, I wouldn’t even know what to check or why it wouldn’t pair with a Motorola G.

        Thanks, I understand. I tried another effort after I deleted the software. Now the watch did show up once in the regular bleutooth screen. So I was hopefull again. But after installing the software again, it still will not pair with the watch…even when it showed up another time in the regualar bluetooth section.
        very strange as the motorola should be almost a clean basic android 6 system.

      no. It takes all basic settings from the smartphone app (including date/time!) and you can see you performed steps, calories in the app as well.

      without smartphone this is just a hearth-rate sensor on your wrist…

    Great little review, I wish I had seen it before I bought my ID107. I’ve been happy so far, but have not been using the Sleep tracking. When I did, I noticed that it is not working on my iPhone SE. I’ve tried both the VeryFit 1.5 (which syncs Heart Rate to the Health App, although incorrect times) and the VeryFit 2.0 (which does not sync heart rate data to the Health App). I am hoping it’s just a software bug in the iOS version like you said, but I can’t get in touch with the developer to confirm this unless I find someone who can read/write Chinese 😉
    I also see that they announced an ID108 with a bigger screen at CeBit in April, but haven’t seen any other information, have you?

    • Justin Germino July 25, 2016 at 10:18 am - Reply

          Try checking the ‘Target setting’ under ‘User’ in the app. Maybe reset the ‘sleep target’ to 8 hours and press ‘confirm’ at top right. Cant see why else it wouldn’t work. Also, when you are on ‘mainpage’ and swipe left on the activity screen, what does it show?

    It shows my heart rate in the graph, but under that there are three categories – peak and cardio exercise and fat burning, but they are always zero. How can I fix it so it shows my heart rate?

    Squirrel – I have an Android phone and the sleep data records on it, but in some posts and reviews I’ve read that it doesn’t work on iPhones. So, if you have an iPhone…

    I have a problem with my Smart Band after about 2 months use:
    The watch goes to 0:00 at irregular intervals. Usually it comes back after 1-2 minutes but sometimes it takes hours to re-syncs. After re-syncing, the steps are back to 0…
    Also, the Smart Band vibrates whenever the watch resets. That makes it impossible to wear during the night.
    Any idea what I could be doing? Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello,

    I have mine since a few weeks. Until now it was fine, all functions ok (with an iPhone 4S). Last week it malfunctioned:
    a “wrench” icon appeared on the screen (at last, so in the sequence: time-pulse-steps-distance-calories-WRENCH). In the same time the watch did not recharge fully even after 4-5 hrs of charging (unplug = shutdown), furthermore the green leds were not lighting (only glowing, or not at all) on the back side.

    I did not swim, i did not shower (I only sweat while climbing).

    Today I wanted to claim, but now (after 3-4 days laying on my desk), it seems to work properly: taking charge, bright pulse-leds, no wrench-icon.

    Anybody any idea, what could be that?

    • Justin Germino August 10, 2016 at 8:13 am - Reply

      Others have reported this issue with the wrench, if I remember correctly the default just says a problem with internal component with no details.

      I am really sorry to hear that, it seems these budget devices are hit and miss with quality control. Did you try plugging it into it’s charger to see if it resets it’s hung state? If that last tip doesn’t work, I would file a return/replacement with the store. You could also try unpairing/pairing it from VeryFit 2 app which may wake it out of that state.

    So, I got my band through a Groupon special, thinking it was a good deal. The band is working as it should but it absolutely will not pair with the app.(LG-G2) The only pairing I can manage, is with the Chinese version via the QR code on the printed instructions that came with the band. This is ok but does not seem to have all the functions that the Veryfit app seems to have. Notably that it will not switch off metric measurements, even when switching to the British choice. (I thought the Brits used metric?) Is this supposed to track and do an average on the pulse/heart rate? That would be a very nice thing to have since I would like to know what my rate is during exercise or when working outdoors without having to look at the watch, which you really can’t read in the bright sun. Any help or news of an update would be great as it seems there are a lot of people with these units, some sort of support would be most helpful.

      Unfortunately I am not able to provide assistance, this watch died on me after showering with it on a few times and it got too much water. So I don’t have the watch anymore and ruined my review unit by not being careful enough with the water proof (is really only splash resistance).

          Cristina: I have the ID107, I think I understand your problem. Press the side button for 2 seconds and bracelet vibrates and enters sports mode, correct? To start recording data, press the side button 2 times quickly. The bracelet will vibrate and you will see it begin counting seconds. To stop recording data, press and hold the side button for 2 seconds. The bracelet will vibrate and return to the clock and date face. Does this answer your question?

    My first VeryFit for heart rate worked perfectly until it ran out of power and then would not charge. I now have a second VeryFit for heart rate and am waiting for it to charge fully before attempting anything further. After reading some of the comments here I have come to the conclusion that you basically get what you pay for with these seeming bargain electronics. If it was a reliable product they would establish a successful entry into the market and product name recognition, but it appears what they are getting is a reputation for poor quality. I suspect their next step will be either an updated product or more cynically just a name change to market it under.

    So…I get that it isn’t waterproof, but it appears not to be sweatproof either…which obviously defeats the point. If you’re just using it to counts your steps all day, eh maybe, but 20 minutes into a run it cuts out and I have to take it off, dry it and put it on again. Which makes it kind of useless for someone actually using it for exercise.

      It will only show 1 sleeping period, but it will reduce the number of “deep sleep” hours because it would have detected your heart rate go above deep sleep rate. So it will factor into your “light/deep” sleep hours.

          What is the exact model of your watch and where did you get it, there is an ID107 and ID105 versions that have no heart rate monitor. When you hold your watch upside down, does it have sensor with green light for detecting heart beat?

        • Rocket December 27, 2016 at 1:34 pm

          When did you get it and where did you get it from. The ID105 there is a button on left which switches mode, 1 press shows heartbeat mode after main screen. If back of your watch doesn’t look like it has a sensor, they probably put wrong model watch into the box that has the heartrate monitor, or the heartrate monitor is broken.

          Okay but your comment then could apply to any company/app period, whether it is Fitbit, Xiaomi, Nike…etc. Pick any of the hundred+ fitness tracker apps that track data, and you could say the same concerns and risks of that data being stored in the cloud, sold and shared can exist. That particular concern isn’t any more of a risk with this app than countless others. But you are right, a world where insurance companies monitor fitband/fitness rates to dictate heath insurance costs…etc isn’t one that is so far fetched is it?

          But again, with a phone and GPS monitoring your location/routes is easier and more interesting to those than specifically steps/calories burned…etc… but it all eventually paints a picture.

    Maybe a long shot here. I got the Id107/veryfit system as a gift back in October. Yesterday the screen was totally blank and it wouldn’t pair with the app. I unbound it after following the troubleshooting instructions that came with it. However no luck it still won’t come home. I charged it fully on Christmas day. (2 days ago) so it’s not the battery. Any suggestions or who can I cotact for tech support?

    I’m not impressed by this device. I barely got out of bed, walked to the kitchen for a cup of coffee, which is about 30 steps and the device already registers over 800 steps. My wife’s registering 110 steps and she hasn’t even hot up from bed yet. Highly inaccurate.

    Justin, you clearly know these ID107s and their cousins well. I’ve had mine for several months, the ID107hr. For the price, I have found it to do a fairly good job of steps and sleep tracking – I have it paired with my iPhone 5s using, of course, the VeryFit 2.0 app. But here’s my question: mine has firmware version 35, while the one I just got for my daughter has firmware 37. If I go to Device/Update, where it specifies v. 35, there is no way to activate the right caret to stimulate any action there. Any thoughts on how I can update the tracker to the current firmware version? I haven’t been able to locate a manufacturer website. Thanks!

    • Justin Germino December 29, 2016 at 11:52 am - Reply

      Unfortunately not, when I got mine from Gearbest store they provided some limited support for me and would reach out to the Veryfit app creator on my behalf though. If firmware doesn’t show in the app itself, you can the newer VeryFit for Heart Rate Monitor app, which is the VeryFit 2 clone app but may be newer and list new version of firmware.

    I work 3rd shift and got the watch to see how well I sleep during the day. So far it only has tracked my sleep cycle at night. Is there a way to change it to track daytime sleep cycles?

    • Justin Germino January 6, 2017 at 7:09 am - Reply

      I don’t know of any fitband with sleep detection that can track daytime naps without it being a manual sleep tracker that you have to engage when you are going to sleep. Most sleep trackers that are automatic do time of day before they switch to that mode to detect sleep, this is to help conserve battery life and even the high end ones like Fitbit only start sleep detection if they detect no motion for 1 hour, so this means 30-45 minute naps wouldn’t be tracked. Garmin, Fitbit, Xaiomi MiBand…etc All can’t track naps during the day, the FitBit One can only because you can manually set watch to sleep tracking mode before you go down for a mid day nap.

      Unfortunately not, assuming the only thing to try is powering off and on the device with the right button. If heartrate monitor works in normal mode, then see if there is an update to the app firmware in Veryfit 2. If not, I don’t have any suggestions, I don’t even have the fitband anymore as mine stopped working after taking too many showers with it on and it was destroyed by water.

        When the VFit is in the heart monitor mode, it shows two hyphens (“–“). That’s when it’s trying to get a reading and it should show the heart rate in a couple of seconds.

    I bought a Very-fit smart band and it does report steps and heart beats and the smartphone app is good, but the display on the smart-band for my wrist is not that great. It doesn’t provide a decent light display and it’s not bright enough to see well. During the daylight hours it is not visible at all. I’m not impressed with it and I did pay over 50 bucks for it so the product is disappointing. Fitbit is much better by a long shot!!! and what I’ve decided to use. I’ll probably give this veryfit away to someone who can use it because I can’t it’s kind of a bummer, perhaps I can give it to a teen who can find a use for it.

        I think it’s trying to say that it lost Bluetooth connectivity to the phone.

        The symbol I see on the VFit when I walk away from the phone is the same symbol it shows when that notification pops up on my phone. I *think* it might be the Anti-lost Alert feature, but I’m going to try disabling it to be sure.

    • Raymond C. Stapleton February 26, 2017 at 1:32 pm - Reply

      I do not have this model myself, but own one we bought a very long time ago, but only recently got devices that work well with it. For the one I own, which is a Garmin Vivofit, I can set the sleep time that I expect to normally be asleep at. I set mine to 12 midnight, waking up at 8 am. The other night, I was up until nearly 2 am watching a really long, movie. I got ready for bed, any as is the case with my device, manually synced the device to my phone. I was surprised to see that I had been in lite sleep for several hours already, even though I had in fact been awake. I am guessing that my lack of movement between midnight and 2 am, during the time I told the watch I would normally be sleeping, registered my inactivity during the movie watching as sleep. Having said all of that, look at your settings and see if it is possible that your sleep time may not have been entered correctly.

    I bought a device for me and my wife recently that counts our steps and such. Hers worked great but mine did not. I learned that part of the issue was the android device I was using. I have 6.01 or something like that, but it would not work correctly with it. It did function on a 5.01 device flawlessly for hers, but for mine, not so much. It is possible that it could be the device you are using to sync the fitness band to, and also possibly the GPS of that device. I have one android device that I cannot properly use the GPS on and another that works great. Both have the same set up other than android version. The older one, with 5.01 worked perfect, while the newer one did not. But wait, I got a cheep $20.00 cell phone which has 6.0 on it, and the device works great on it as opposed to the tablet that cost me over $150.00. It may be the android phone or tablet being used as well. Just a thought.

      Your watch will track steps and such without your phone being nearby and then you can sync up to your phone Veryfit 2 app later, just make sure you sync it before next day at midnight, or else the steps clear to 0 everyday.

      when in sports mode just double press the Press button and it will immediatelly start sports mode. when you just hold 2 seconds than you are entering history sports mode. So you need to double press 🙂 enjoy!

    Piece of junk doesn’t stay charged, I put it on charge before I got to bed, wake up it’s fully charged, by lunch it’s completely dead.

    When I start my sports mode and then finish, does it store automatically? if so can I sync the information with my app so that I have history of calories burnt during exercise. I want to do this because if I go a 5 mile run I want to ensure I am burning around same calories and working hard. Also, does this device not monitor heart rate constantly?

    My heart rate has just been showing — instead of any data. It’s been tracking my steps just fine. How do I get it to measure my heart rate?

      press it against the skin of your wrist and hold it for a minute. It relies on contacting your body and the band has to be tight enuf to do that. I had to ‘play’ with mine before I could see heart rate.

    I loved my veryfit smart watch until it stopped working and only shows an arrow on the face. I’ve tried updating it and it showed it was updating but then nothing, still just an arrow. I tried removing the app and reinstalling it and now it won’t pair up.
    Not sure what to do. Has anyone seen the arrow or know how to get the device to pair up with my galaxy s8??

      is the battery charged? Sounds like it might be out of battery…

    Where do I get a charger for my very fit watch?

      You pull the band off and one end has a USB like thing. Plug it into your computers USB port and it will charge.

    The live data is very useful, but the synching to the app is very disappointing. It has only recorded the first day of use. The instructions are pitiful and tiny. The battery life is considerably shorter than advertise and seems to be just under two days with my watch.

    I received my veryfit smart band as a gift. I didn’t have any trouble setting it up to interact with my Android phone. The problem I have is the step counting. Mine is counting arm movement. I was on the treadmill yesterday and walked 1 and 1/2 miles and it did not count my steps. I was not moving my arms by myside but that shouldn’t matter. I can sit in a chair at home and it will count arm movements as steps. What can I do to correct this?

    Hello, I rec. mine at the weekend and am having trouble getting my heard round the sports function would you change to this for an exercise class for example? Also I cant see to access it I hold the button for 2 seconds and its just flashes up with the 3, vibrates and that is it? I thought the sports function had a stop watch and all sorts? Any help would be great!
