    Constantly restarts

    The watch constantly restarts. Could be in the middle of a workout or in the middle of the night and in the middle of doing nothing. Lose all my data for the day, my workout info and I have to redo all my settings. I wish it had more workout/activity options like hiit or stretching/yoga. If I’m pushing a strolling and walking or even a shopping cart in the grocery store it doesn’t track my steps so make me wonder how accurate my other steps are. During a workout my heart rate will read say 160 but when I look in my full day heart rate it’ll say the max was 130. Again makes me question accuracy. It’s great otherwise, easy to use, easy to wear, seems splash resistant from washing hands doing dishes and bathing kids along long as their not splashing too much lol. If it unhooks from Bluetooth I have to go into the app and my settings and completely forget and re sync in order to reconnect which losses all recent data. Not able to connect it to workout apps so heart rate can be included in workout data. The message alerts either keep vibrating if you don’t read your phone or they go away before you even have a chance to read two words.

    Ok for what it cost

    So after a few weeks of owning and wearing the watch decided to do quick review. Overall watch is ok. Getting used to how things function takes a little time but I am getting there. Battery life so far has been pretty good. My complaint thus far and reason for 3 stars is the font is too small for me I wear readers to read and I can’t see anything other than main face without them on this device wish there was a way to enlarge the font or bigger face or something.

    The Price is Extraordinary

    This watch is remarkable for the price. I wear both a Fitbit Versa 2 which costs $149 and the Heroband III which cost me less than $50. The Hero does more. It counts true striding steps, not little shuffling steps you take in the kitchen, around the bathroom sink etc. It’s heartbeat, blood pressure and oxygen measurements agree closely with my home medical equipment. I loaded a custom watch face that gives me continuous readings of heartbeat, steps, miles, calories burned, charged percent, along with the time and date. It takes some practice to figure out how to operate the watch and App. The band is difficult to clasp and you need shade to read the watch face outdoors, but hey, the price is so good you can laugh all the way to the bank.

    Happy with Upgrade

    When I got my Hero Band III over a year ago, the band was a little hard to attach to itself, charging was not the easiest and the display was way, way too dim. During this past year, the band became much easier to fit together, I found that the watch electrodes for charging needed cleaning, even scraping to make a solid connection with the charger and the last Upgrade fixed the display so that I could see it in the sun - at least while shading it with my hand; before it was even hard to see in a very well lit room. There was also a problem with the watch losing the dial picture and reverting some other things back to its defaults; all because I kept the app hanging in the background of my iPhone. I found that if I set everything and swiped the app out of active memory, I no longer experienced the defaults showing up again. The only real downside to this watch is the plastic face - it scratches way too easily. Otherwise, I am enjoying all the functions this watch boasts; for a lot less than what I still want - an iWatch, just because I own an iPhone.

    Great watch for the price

    I have been looking for a watch to replace my Fitbit, needed something with more features that wouldn’t break the bank, found this one and have over it since purchasing. Some features are limited but for what you get it is more than worth it. Love that I can keep track of my heart rate and blood pressure while still getting all the alerts from my phone. Battery life is pretty great, normally lasts about a week before needing to be recharged. The app makes it very simple to setup and to use, highly satisfied!!!

    Love this watch

    I love everything about this watch there could be some fixes like a button to re-sync the phone if you notice there’s something wrong. I had to completely deactivate and unhook from Bluetooth when the watch would work. Also on the design your own watch face I wish there was a battery life % on it. I never know when it’s going to die because it’s not on the watch face. I also wish it vibrated more for the social media apps and the calls and messages. Sometimes it doesn’t even vibrate or show what it was.

    Decent watch and app

    I bought this watch to avoid spending the $300 or so for an Apple Watch. I like the step counter and the notifications...that’s about all I like. I’ve had issues getting it to sync with Apple health, and now the watch won’t sync with this app after the watch suddenly crashed yesterday. I wouldn’t recommend this watch/app. Update:it’s better at syncing with Apple health but this app resets a lot. For example I went to bed last night and had 9,000+ steps for the day. I looked today and I now have 0 for yesterday. I just updated to version 1.1.2 and the notifications keep turning all on. I have them custom set but they won’t stay that way as default to all on after a few mins.

    Very limited functionality, great battery life

    Very limited abilities. Not sure how accurate the steps are, but the notifications are all but useless! The messages appear for a very short time, so you have to look at it immediately or it is gone. When you get a call, the information is there only while it is ringing. In both cases, once the information is gone, it’s gone. It can’t be recalled-there’s not even a record of it or a notification of a missed call. Nada. Also, the band is almost too small for my husband and he has "normal” size wrists for a man. The battery life is phenomenal! He has been wearing it for almost a week and it still has 80+% charge without charging it again!

    Look, for the price it ain’t bad. I have not seen the glitches others have mentioned. I’ll take this over a 10 time pricier Apple Watch... until my kids send me one for free. But the Apple doesn’t do BP without an extra gadget and app. As to accuracy, it seems in the ball park, but when first purchased, blood pressure was scarily high, by 20 or 30 mmhg. Then they pushed an update to the watch’s OS (not the app, the watch itself) to vMOY-FS3-1.8.1. Now BP is reasonably accurate, but you have to add about 10 to get a close match to a real BP cuff. My doctor says this shouldn’t work but it does. I have one major complaint: it needs a stopwatch feature you can easily get to. Yes, there’s one buried in the Settings (cog icon), but that is silly. Come on! It should be available on the first page after home screen, like any respectable watch. One final thing: what the heck is “Quick View”? I can’t find any reference to that. It’s not explained in the app.

    This is a GREAT watch I got it with money I earned but I do wish it had a few different things I wish the charger was like my iPhone one and a plug and a bit longer so it could also track my sleep but it is an amazing watch and I highly recommend it for ALL AGES I love vampires and changed the screen to my fav emoji! It allows you to do a lot of stuff but it is a pain to get back I didn’t mean to press reset and had to work on it for a few days to get back on but other than that it is a great watch.

    You get what you pay for

    Guess $40 can only go so far these days. The watch is unreliable for the most part. First, I can’t read the time when I am under the sun because the ambiance of the screen is so soft. Second, the time is wrong 1/2 of the time because the watch loses its connection. Third, it’s not the easiest thing to reconnect the watch to your phone. In fact, as I am typing this feedback, I am still waiting for the watch to be reconnected. I am done with this cheap Chinese counterfeit watch. I am going to spend a few hundred dollars to get a real Apple Watch. Please don’t waste your money on this.

    Interface Issues

    I recently purchased the Hero Band III and installed the app as instructed. I continue to have issues getting the app to show the different type of exercises available and cannot select it from the Functions on the bracelet. I also am not able to share health information from my iPhone 11 and vice versa. For the record, I have disconnected and reconnected the device twice and have confirmed that my Health info app is able to share with the bracelet. These two features just have not worked regardless of how many attempts I’ve made. I am extremely frustrated!

    Not a good watch

    I’ve had numerous problems with this watch and the app. Setting up initially went fine but since has been difficult. I’ve had to reset and reconnect 3 times and you have to go back to the start like it’s 1st time out of the box. It makes changes such as dropping the weather connection frequently. I was working with a lot of arm motion and it went back to factory settings. The wrist band is difficult to latch comfortably. I thought I could return for refund within 15 days but no. I’ve contacted support more than once and they send a list of the set up pages from the manual. I don’t recommend this app or this watch!!

    Easy to setup

    Watch was super easy to setup. I didn’t have any issues like some of the others spoke about. I hate the band it’s cheap & will replace. I’d like to figure out or find out how to leave screen open longer, especially during my learning time. Now that I’ve had this watch for more than a week, I’m not liking very much. Blood pressure reader is way off. I got it specifically for this function. I have very low Bp. The show is very high. I checked it against my regular Bp cuff multiple times. My normal cuff is reading low, the same as my dr office. I’m going to see if watch is returnable

    I Love This Watch

    I saw this on Fox News morning segment of gift ideas. I went out on a limb buying this watch one of the main reason is - it is close to the iwatch in recording my oxygen. I am still learning this watch. My biggest complaint is the band. The silver tab, that you insert into the hole should be just a wee bit longer - it would be helpful for people like me with arthritis hands... the tuck in of the band is a spot on idea!!!

HeroBand III does not accurately track sleep. For instance today I was up at 5:30 AM and it tracked that I slept until 7:54 AM. I was up moving around at 6:15. This has happened almost every night I have used it.

I'm using the Popglory P22C watch with your app. Everything is great except the Blood pressure reading. I've tested my BP with a cuff and an Omron watch. My pressure is normally 130/80 to 140/85. With the P22C watch it never reads above 110/60. It seems to have an upper limit. I set quietly with the watch at heart level. Is there another app that may work better with this watch? Thanks for the help.
