007Plus is the ID105 Fit Band:http://prourls.co/Io06
Testing when you setup SMS notifications in the Veryfit 2 app, the ID105 will show the name of the person if they are in your contact list and your phone goes off. It only displays name if phone is locked, not if you have the messenger app open and are just casually getting responses.
It comes in black or purple and the fit watch is inside the band (can’t be removed) the charging is a USB powered clamp that clamps over and makes pin connections to charge the fit band. This gadget is only rated for splashproof (sink water, rain) it is not submersible in water.
007Plus is the store on Amazon that sent us the watch to review and I reviewed and compared this watch to the ID107 VeryFit 2 fit band and the Xiaomi MiBand 2 fit band to show you how it stacks up and whether or not I think the ID105 is a good deal and worth your time and money. This watch requires you to have it paired with your phone, it cannot set time by itself without having a phone to pair it with. It will increment time if pairing is lost, but it can’t set the time manually at all. On the back side of the 007Plus ID105 Fit Band with Heart Rate Monitor you will see that it has the heart rate sensor and 3 pins. Battery life on the 007plus ID105 was about 4 days between charges, which is around the same as the ID107 but the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 has a 9 day battery life, though it doesn’t do active heart rate monitoring and only monitors when you specifically request a heart rate check. You can see below the ID105 from 007Plus is on the right, the watch home screen compared to the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 which only displays the time on home screen. The ID105 displays the time, AM/PM, date, day of the week, battery life and whether or not it is connected via Bluetooth. You get a lot more on the home screen which makes the fit band more valuable. Inside the VeryFit 2 app which I reviewed previously you get to set your silent alarm options, and choose which notifications and alerts show up on your watch. You can also use the watch as your snap button for pictures, but I found a bug where once you snap pictures you can’t get back to the VeryFit app without closing and re-opening it. Step tracking is pretty accurate from what I can tell, it uses GPS as well as motion so it will not track steps just by waving your arms or hands like some fit bands, it won’t increment steps by driving either from my testing. It kept up with the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 and the step tracking was fairly current, the only minor issue that is that I set my daily goal to 8,000 steps and one night when I reached my goal, it would buzz the watch, then it would subtract some steps when I lying in bed and then made it reach the goal again when I walked into the kitchen. This only happened 1x and I was not able to reproduce why it subtracted and re-added steps but I couldn’t reproduce the issue again.
Update on the ID105 007Plus Fitness Band
So after about 5 weeks of using the fitband I can tell you problems arose with it, the battery which used to last 4 days is now only lasting about 24 hours. This happened after I accidentally let my fitband drain to 0 battery and die completely, ever since I recharged it it just hasn’t held the same capacity since. I talked with the brand and they mentioned that you should leave the watch on the charger no more than 2 hours, if you leave it on charger persistently or let it drain completely then it can drastically decrease battery life. Given that you have to have so much attention to time to leave it on charger I am changing the star rating to 3.5 stars instead of 4.5 stars. I think any product should have auto sensing and stop pulling a charge when it reaches 100% battery and not risk damaging the battery because you simply left it on the charger.
