Wukong JW018 Smart Band Bracelet Heart Rate Monitor Activity

I did a post not so long ago on the Fitbit Charge HR and how it would make a great gift. I had a few mates telling me though that not everyone could afford to gift a Fitbit.

I understand that times are tough and that being the case I thought it would be a great idea to come up with some more affordable sports heart rate monitors.

Wukong JW018 Smart Band Bracelet

I was actually surprised at how many sports smart band bracelets that were reasonably priced on the market. I decided to show you the Wukong JW018 smart band bracelet because it had most of the features of my Fitbit Charge HR. These include…

  1. Heart rate monitor to track your heart rate during exercise
  2. No need to carry your smartphone during sports activities as it stores up to 7 days of information.
  3. All information is available on the bracelet including time, steps, heart rate, calories and status.
  4. Sleep mode
  5. Silent vibration reminders including any incoming calls. I love that my Fitbit shows me who is calling on my mobile and it looks like the Wukong JW018 Smart Band Bracelet has the same feature.  Thumbup:

It also shows a whole heap of stats. The only fault I could find is that it only holds a two day charge, my Fitbit lasts at least 4 days. Still, that shouldn’t be too much of a deterrent as it’s easily charged using the supplied USB charger.

The Wukong JW018 Smart Band Bracelet will connect to any Bluetooth 4.0 smartphone which means it would support iPhone and most androids.

I know you’re all wondering how much this baby will set you back. You can get the Wukong JW018 Smart Band Bracelet on eBay for a little over $54 or you can get one on AliExpress for a cool $32.75. I’ve already sold on the Gift Guru’s Gift Store so I can see this being a very popular item!

Do you happen to own a Wukong JW018 Smart Band Bracelet? If so I’d love it if you can tell us your experience.

Buying Gifts Online Tips


Buying gifts online can give the buyer great savings. Sites like Amazon, eBay and even The Gift Store, also offers customers a greater selection of product. Products they may not find in their local shops and department stores.

When buying gifts online there are certain factors buyers should be aware of.

Buying Gifts Online Tips

Buying Gifts Online Tips #1

Time is always a factor when buying gifts online. Always make sure you check how long it will take for your gifts to arrive and add on a couple of weeks for good measure. It’s better to have your gift come early rather than not getting it on time.

When buying gifts for Christmas and special occasions I always shop months in advance. I’d rather have the gifts arrive early rather than have the stress of wondering whether or not my gifts will arrive in time.

Buying Gifts Online Tips #2

Before actually buying your gift online you should always check customer reviews. Where possible I only post products that have good reviews to make it easier for you.  Thumbup:

While both eBay and AliExpress, which is where I get all my products for my Gift Store, are reputable online stores they can be prone to unscrupulous sellers who have no qualms about ripping off their customers. Both sires have introduced a customer feedback option to help buyers so they’re not scammed by these wankers.

It is important that you only purchase gifts from sellers with a good customer feedback rating. I never buy stuff from sellers who have a customer rating below 90%. It’s also a good idea to check any feedback on delivery times.

Buying Gifts Online Tips #3

Buying from established sellers is always a good idea. It’s a lot safer to buy from someone who has been around for years rather than someone who’s only just started selling stuff.

As long as you keep those tips in mind before purchasing any gifts online you should be relatively safe. If you have any other tips that will help gift buyers online shopping experience feel free to leave a comment.\

 


Note: While you can find the Fitbit on Amazon it’s always a good idea to check eBay to see if you can find a better deal. If the Fitbit Charge HR is more than you want to pay then I recommend you check out some of the cheaper copies available at my new Gift Store.

it was my birthday on the weekend and I got the best gift ever. I dropped a couple of hints leading up to my birthday and so I was really hoping the hints would take fruit. When I opened my birthday and saw my Fitbit Tracker I was absolutely thrilled. There are quite a few Fitbit Trackers available and I was lucky enough to get the Fitbit Charge HR which I’m reviewing for this post. You can see a collection of all the Fitbits available on this page.

Fitbit Charge HR Review

Fitbit Charge HR review

You can see me wearing my Fitbit Charge HR in the image on the left. Normally you don’t see the digital display unless you give the Fitbit a tap or when you bring your wrist up and twist it. I found that to be pretty cool.

Fitbit Charge HR Features

The Fitbit can track so many activities. I reckon the Fitbit Charge HR’s best feature is that it can track so many aspects of my daily activities. This includes steps, distance, floors climbed, calories burned, total amount of minutes I’ve been active as well as telling the time! If I was to go for a run it would also display run time, pace and distance travelled.

I actually went for a walk/jog/run and my Fitbit app not only recorded distance, time and pace it also used the GPS feature of my iPhone to map out my complete exercise route.

My Fitbit Charge HR also monitors my sleep including stats such as hours slept, times awakened and my sleep quality. It’s even got a silent vibrating alarm so that I don’t have to worry about waking up the missus.  :wishful:

As far as I’m concerned though I reckon the Fitbit Charge HR’s most important feature is that it continually monitors my heart rate. It doesn’t matter if I’m asleep, just sitting in front of the TV or working out, the Fitbit tracker gives me continuous updates of my heart rate.

The Fitbit is the perfect gift for almost anybody who wants to get fit. It helps you to get motivated and to stay motivated. With the Fitbit app you can also compete with friends who also have the Fitbit tracker. I know I love mine and as you can see from other Fitbit Charge HR owners, they love theirs as well
