Lenovo HW01 smart band performance

You will need to download the Lenovo Smart Bracelet app from Google or Apple stores. Install it and pair it with the band. The app gives you a lot of option. This band can track your steps, distance covered, calories burned, your sleep pattern, heart rate and apart from this it will also give you alerts – message, SMS, Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter etc.

You can also enable call alerts (vibration) wherein you will get the caller ID (name as in your contacts) on the OLED screen when you receive a call. This fitness band does not come with built in Mic and Speaker, only vibration alerts.

Overall did not encounter any issues, there is no need to carry the smartphone with you but make sure to sync at least once a week.

Lenovo HW01 Real Time Heart Rate

There is option to choose real time heart rate monitoring, you can do that from the app or press and hold the button on the band until you get 3 options choose the 1st option i.e exercise mode and it will start monitoring your heart rate in real time. This is a very good option if you are doing extensive exercise and want to closely monitor your heart rate, you can also setup the heart rate alert value so in case your heart rate goes over the defined value you will get vibration alert.

Lenovo HW01 battery performance

The 90 mAh battery can be fully charged in less than 2 hours (around 1 hours 20 minutes using 5V/1A charger). On a full charge you will get around 15 days of battery life, even more if you hardly use real-time heart rate monitoring option.

The strap is a part of the body so in case it gets damaged you will not be able to replace the strap.

Verdict

The Lenovo HW01 fitness band is a very good option and slightly cheaper than the Mi band 2. You can definitely go ahead with this band, the results I got was quite consistent (no bands are accurate you need to look for consistency).

Very good buy for $25 not available in India but you can buy from Banggood.com will cost you around Rs. 1,700 and there is no custom duty you need to pay.

Rating 5 out of 5

This band can give tough competition to Mi Band 2.

Now also available on Flipkart for Rs. 1,999.

Buy the Lenovo HW01 for under $25.
