REVIEW: Alisten Smart Fitness Activity Band

Saturday, June 3, 2017

I got my first set of Fitness Tracker! Let me give you an idea of how this one works, read on!
In today's world where almost everyone is starting to be conscious about their health, smart fitness tracker became popular. It has been making a buzz for a while now, bust since most of them are expensive, I just can't afford to get myself one before. Fortunately, as one of the perks of being an honest product reviewer, I got the chance of reviewing this fitness tracker for almost free (I got it for a heavily discounted price in exchange for my honest reviews and opinions).

Anyway, let's discuss the basics. This Alisten Smart Fitness Activity Band came in a cute little navy blue box. It came with the removable black tracker, 2 smart bands (camouflage & black in color), USB charger and a user manual.

Assembling the Smart Band

Putting the tracker and band together was a no-brainer. Just take it outside the box, insert the tracker into the hole in the waistband and slightly press the edges to secure it, and then you can wear it. The user manual is a helpful guide, it's also written in different languages which are convenient if you speak a language other than English.

Charging the Tracker

I found the USB charger cool and easy to use. You just have to insert the tracker into the USB charger dongle and make sure the two metal prongs inside are connected to the device, then plug the USB charger into a USB port on your computer or in a power bank if you have one.

Downloading the Smart Movement App

For you to be able to use it, you have to download their free application called "Smart Movement" either from App store if you have an iPhone or from Google Play store if you have an Android device.

It was not hard setting it up. Once you downloaded the app, open your phone's blue tooth and open the App then choose the device from the choices that will show up in the first screen, After that, go to the profile tab with the image of a person and has "Me" as its name. Then click the lock band that can be found in the upper right corner of the app. This will automatically scan devices and once your tracker's name appears, just click it and the tracker and phone will automatically be synchronized, populating the correct time and date in your tracker device. Your tracker is now ready to use. Touch the band and it will show you the screen. 

Key features

So, what can this tracker do? A couple of basic things such as the following:
  • Display time and date

  • Count your steps, calories, and distance.

  • Monitor your sleeping progress
  • It has push notifications for messages, calls, and even alarm clock
  • It can be used as a camera remote
  • IPX67 Water resistant

The only thing it's missing that could have been a great addition to it is the heart rate monitoring ability. But, overall, I love all the function of this smart fitness tracker. The battery life was great, and it can stay charged up to 15 days in stand-by. The tracker helps me keep updated with all incoming calls and messages when I am away to my phone. Although I am not planning to use the other wristband, I found this tracker stylish and can match everything I wear. I also like the fact that it's water resistant. I can wear it even while I'm washing the dishes.

I will continue to monitor its performance especially when I go back to walking and running every day.

If you want this fitness tracker for yourself, you can get it here at an affordable price:
