Cheap FitBit Alternative – RunMe Fitness Tracker Review


Fitness Trackers are highly popular and
for good reason. they’re quite handy to have around they can help keep track of
your fitness routines and calories burned keep track of your dietary intake
and even monitor your sleep patterns the most common of these trekkers is
arguably Fitbit so much so that all sometimes people refer to any wearable
fitness tracker as a Fitbit regardless of what brand it is but a regular Fitbit
can run anywhere between 99 and 200 dollars depending on which one you
purchase and that might be out of most people spending range but even though
Fitbit is the most popular name on the market there are cheaper alternatives
out there that provide the same if not more options and a far more reasonable
price tag today I’m going to be showing you the run me fitness tracker the
company sent me one of the run me wearable trackers and for the past week
I’ve been using it to see how it holds up on Amazon the run me is under $40
currently and routinely goes on sale for less
I’m going to put a link to it in the video description down below if you
would like to check it out so I’ll show you how it works and then we’re going to
compare it to a Fitbit the band is made of TPE
or a thermoplastic rubber it’s real stretchy and strong and comfortable
around your wrist and has an adjustable latched connector similar to most
watches it contains a Nordic internal CPU and Akai Onix sensor this is the
built-in accelerometer and gyroscope that helps to determine what is a step
and is not when is counting your steps it features USB charging which you can
access by removing the sensor from the band and plugging it into a standard USB
charging device like an outlet or even your computer it takes about one and a
half hours to fully charge and has standby time between five and 10 days
depending on your usage and then you just snap it back into the band the
interface on the device is an OLEDs screen device and it’s all touch based
there’s no physical buttons on it you navigate the menus by taps and swipes of
your fingers from the device you can view your foot steps your heart rate
calories burned distance traveled and time active it also has onboard features
such as relaxation mode to help slow your breathing and relax stop watch SMS
message reading capabilities weather notification remote camera control GPS
phone call alerts sedentariness reminder music control
find phone capabilities and more to get the full experience of the device you
need to download the free app from the store called very fit Pro it’s available
for Android and Apple and it is free and it connects to your tracker via
bluetooth this allows you to create a profile and track your daily activities
you set it up by starting off with your gender your birth date your height and
weight which are the factors that the device is used to estimate steps taken
and calories burned because that’s not an exact science it just kind of has to
get the best guess possible now I did run into a little bit of trouble when I
was trying to get this device to pair with my phone via bluetooth but in all
fairness I ran into the same problems connecting the Fitbit and another
fitness tracker I’ve been using which is more or less a Bluetooth problem not the
actual tracker itself but once it was paired I didn’t have any further
difficulties getting it to sync information between the band and the app
for my activities so now let’s put the run me and the Fitbit to the test
head-to-head for step counting I wore both devices on the same hand and went
for a one-mile walk around my neighborhood then I checked the steps
taken for that exercise on both of run me and the Fitbit the steps counted were
nearly identical within about 1% of each other which is a negligible difference
so let’s compare features both the run me and the Fitbit have heart rate
monitor pedometer activity and sedentary monitor relaxation mode calories burned
multiple workout mode such is from the ability to access call text and weather
alerts built in GPS to record paths traveled sleep pattern tracking and the
ability to control music remotely the Fitbit does keep an estimated tracking
of the number of flights of stairs climbed in a day whereas the read me
does not and the read me allows for remote control of camera which the
Fitbit doesn’t seem to do but besides those two features the option is
provided by the fitness bands are nearly identical and my results from using both
bands simultaneously is that the run me performs just as good as the Fitbit in
every case and the fact that the run me is between 1/2 and 1/4 the cost of a
Fitbit depending on which model you choose this is
a very viable alternative and I highly recommend it if you’re looking to
purchase a new fitness tracker and that wraps up my review of the run me fitness
tracker if you have any questions do drop it in the comment section down

    The RunMe is a very viable, and less expensive alternative: http://amzn.to/2uyWWBM

  14. hi, it can read messages from apps like viber or messenger or only support sms ?

  15. Does it count steps by ARM SWING

  16. This band is called the ID107plus. It's sold under a wide variety of brands (e.g. Coffea, Makibe, Teamyo, etc). It's made by a company called IDOOSMART. Was surprised to see this review start off great and then degrade into "yes you should buy this" territory. I mean, reviewer didn't even test the HR monitor against the Fitbit! (spoiler: HR monitor is very innacurate when working out). He also didn't seem to mention the device can only read/show the first 10 characters of a message…

    It does have pros though: it's a watch, it has a stopwatch (but not e countdown timer), weather indicator, inactivity alert, caller/msg ID, it vibrates pretty good for notifications. It has a useful camera app and music control app, and also a handy phone finder. Other than that, don't expect much given the price.

  17. Can I swim with that?

  18. Great review 100 out of 100

  19. Is it able to shower with this runme model? Is it ip67 or ip68?

  20. I have got this runme fitness tracker however I am having a problem with notification alerts. Do you receive notification alerts for apps like Whatsapp etc?

  21. GPS tracker working? Map can load?

    Can Read full SMS/Massage on screen?

  22. I just purchased this device, however I cannot get it to track my sleep. I have tried everything in the app. When you click on the sleep, it has time 12 am to 12am- but is not tracking my sleep. What do I need to do? Any help would be appreciated

  23. How on earth do i set the time on this watch?

  24. If I am out of Bluetooth range for a while will I still monitor my progress and sync up when I return to my device?

  25. Hi is this device water proof

  26. mine didn't come with a user manual for some reason, so i've had to hunt online to find out which app to use and your review was the only one that actually mentioned it so THANKS!

  27. what is that circle for on the watch

  28. Someone please help… Ive charged it all day but it won't come on. There is no light or anything to indicate that it is working.

  29. Does the gps work without having my phone with me? For example if i go for a run do i need to take my phone with me?

  30. Can you read text message off the screen?

  31. Hey Guys! This Tracker works in a treadmill? Thanks….

  32. How do you turn it on? I turned it off, and now can't get it to work. Thanks.

  33. Hi, I am using Lintelek – ID107PLUS HR smart band.
    Why don't I have real forecast on my watch?
    I am using the APP, everything is synced and it's working fine, but this weather is awful. It shows " -99C degree – sunny", which is unreal.
    I "restarted" the watch and the problem Is still the same.
    Could you advise me or should I exchange it for another watch?

  34. I like my new runme, but I can't seem to find replacement bands. Any ideas?

  35. I doubt if built in GPS..

  36. how do you do you setup the time and date?

  37. I can't get the sleep tracker programmed or change the fitness from walking to workout…. help! lol

  38. The VeryFitPro app constantly crashes, and therefore a major problem staying connected to my cell phone. Any suggestions or another app available????

  39. I'm waiting for Xiaomi Mi Band 3 s much!

  40. Anyone have a discount code for this?

  41. Maybe I'm just misunderstanding… 1 mile, 1534 steps, 41" per step? Those are "big people" steps! Or, if that were a "stride", then those are 20.6" steps, which are "baby steps". Of course, if you're just wanting the two to match, then that's fine… But your mile is off.IS there verification regarding it have GPS (versus inertial tracking approximating path coupled with the last valid GPS location)? It would be worth buying just for a micro GPS tracker. 🙂

  42. Keep the vids coming

  43. how does compare to the F4 Smart Wristband Watch , and how waterproof is it ?

  44. Not connecting to the mobile please help me

  45. Can you change the time to military time?

  46. Cheers bro, great info, very helpful 🙂

  47. I am looking for simple tracker to track my steps and stairs. I don't need music, heart rate, text/call notifications or any extras. I have spent hours searching and reviewing. I thought the RunMe might be it but you pointed out that it does not track stairs. Any suggestions? I work in a large building and go UP at least 200 stairs/day but I'd love to have an actual count along with my steps tracked separately because of the long corridors I walk.

  48. I don't use a cell phone. Can I use my ipad instead of the phone?

  49. I have a great fitness tracker ,if anyone can help me do amazon review ,please contact with me:

  50. that did help a lot 🙂

  51. Useful video thx

  52. Thanks bro ! Good job.

  53. I wonder how this stacks up against Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro? I just got a gear for free but see it for AU$300 in the shops. I see this type for $20 on eBay, postage inc. Seems to have very similar features, even the app looks like the Gear app. Maybe it doesn't have GPS and Wi-fi although I still haven't figured out why my Fit2 needs GPS and Wi-fi anyway. It never uses them.

  54. Despite being in bed with light out by 10pm, this never shows that I am asleep before 11:25pm. Anyway to adjust this?

  55. will not turn on. when charged get black screen

  56. These are the kind of reviews that I like to see. good job

  57. How do you read your messages on runme Fitbit

  58. Omg thank you! This was super helpful! I been looking for a new more affordable watch. And the fact that this does 14 fitness modes sold me!

  59. I found one for 15 pounds

  60. From looking at the app in the video it only has a 2.5 star rating. Is it deserving of such a low rating?

  61. I just got this watch, and I already love it!

  62. Why and how do you get messaging features to work? Mine always says no messages when a text message is clearly sitting on my phone?

  63. does the watch tell you your runnig speed?

  64. OMG this is what I'm looking for and on my amazon its 11 pounds I am buying!

  65. I am getting two for 9.99 pounds each

  66. This video really convinced me and i got one. Thanks 🙂
