What’s LETSCOM, you ask? This brand doesn’t have the kind of name recognition Fitbit can brag about, but it does make solid activity trackers at totally affordable prices—which has made it one of the most popular exercise band brands for online shoppers. I put the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker ID115Plus HR to the test to see if it could accurately track and display my data while boasting a decent battery life and extra features. 

Design: Finally, a device with no extra cables!

It’s hard to innovate on the design of a fitness tracker—just like 99 percent of the other devices out there, the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker ID115Plus HR is a silicone band with a sensor. But instead of popping the sensor out of the band, you actually pull the straps off the sensor to reveal the built-in USB plug, which can be charged in any USB port (huzzah! No extra charging cables!). The strap feels a little wider than the Fitbit Alta, but it still sits comfortably on the wrist. It may not be as high-quality, but it’s certainly not as cheap-feeling (or looking) as other budget options like the Xiaomi Mi Band 3.

The sensor itself is about an inch and a half long and three-quarters of an inch wide with a 0.96-inch OLED (organic light-emitting diode) screen. Despite that large size, it’s still difficult to see the type on the screen in daylight (eventually, some tracker brand will figure this out!). And, confusingly, there’s only one small part of the screen that’s touchscreen; if you tap anywhere else, nothing happens. 

You can literally plug the sensor right into any USB port you have on hand.

On the plus side, that one little spot is extremely responsive. Tapping it moves you from the main clock screen through your daily step count, heart rate screen, and options for tracking a walk, run, or bike ride. When you hold your finger down on the screen, it will show you more info on your distance covered, calories burned, and activity minutes. You can also initiate a heart rate reading or start a workout activity this way. I still wish the whole thing was a touchscreen, but cycling through the device’s offerings couldn’t have been easier. 

Tracking: Delivers on all the standard tracking

There’s nothing surprising about the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker HR’s actual tracking abilities. The device collects data on your step count, calories burned, distance covered, and 14 different types of workouts (there’s no altimeter, so you won’t know how many floors you’ve covered). 

FYI: It’s water-resistant, so it can handle sweat and splashes, but you can’t wear it for water activities like swimming. I did find that the numbers lagged slightly behind those recorded by my Apple Watch, but not significantly enough that I was concerned.

Unlike most budget trackers, this LETSCOM also tracks your heart rate and sleep. On the bottom of the sensor are two blinking green lights; those measure your heart rate throughout the day to provide insights into your cardiovascular activity. And using that data, the device can also shed some light on your sleep habits, like how long you spent awake, in light sleep, or in deep sleep. That info is all accessible in the partner app; more on that below.

Compatibility: The no-frills app competently displays all data

The ID115Plus HR pairs with the VeryFitPro app (on Apple and Google Play), which is where you can delve into the stats the device is recording all day. You’ll fill in the basics—gender, weight, height, age, and daily step and target goals—in the app, and then it’s super simple to pair the device, which syncs quickly each time you open the app. When it’s connected to your phone via Bluetooth, the LETSCOM can also record GPS (which can be helpful after a run or bike ride, for example, if you want to revisit your route in the future) and receive text messages, emails, and notifications. You can even use it to remote control your phone camera and ping a lost phone.

In the app, you can view all the standard stats and get more data on your sleep and heart rate. The device doesn’t continuously track your heart rate all day (likely to save battery life), but it will check periodically to provide you with your resting heart rate, average heart rate, and max heart rate—all of which play into understanding your health and fitness levels.

Considering that the LETSCOM has almost the exact same features as Fitbit’s most basic offering, the Flex 2, this device feels like a steal.

Battery: No extra cables needed

One of the best aspects of this activity tracker over most I’ve tested is that you can literally plug the sensor right into any USB port you have on hand. Considering how many chargeable devices we use—and how many still come with proprietary charging cables (looking at you, Fitbit), knowing that this device doesn’t require yet another cable is a major selling point. 

The battery life is also significant. It only takes a few hours to go from zero percent to fully charged, and then it’ll last for five to 10 days, depending on how many activities you end up tracking. Since I logged several running workouts, I found the device to last a full week. But even after I stopped tracking, the device sat on my shelf for another week (and then some), and it still had battery left for days.

Price: All the staples at a budget price

There’s not much technology you can buy for $30, and trackers that do ring up under that price tend to be lacking—sometimes severely—in important areas, especially for people who want to do more than just count their steps. And considering that the LETSCOM has almost the exact same features as Fitbit’s most basic offering, the Flex 2 (minus swim tracking, but the Flex 2 lacks a screen which is a fair trade in my opinion), this device feels like a steal. Sure, you’re not going to be name-dropping your tracker like Fitbit or Garmin users, but you’re also going to have more cash in your wallet—so who’s really winning?

When it’s connected to your phone via Bluetooth, the LETSCOM can also record GPS—ideal for running and biking workouts.

Competition: There’s no competition in the budget market

It’s unfair to compare an under-$30 tracker to pricier models (despite the fact that most of the features are on par), but when you put the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker ID115Plus HR next to another device in its price range, like the Xiaomi Mi Band 3 Fitness Tracker, which I also tested, there’s no competition. What the brand lacks in status, it makes up for with solid materials and capable technology.

Final Verdict

Buy it.

LETSCOM doesn’t have quite the name cache as a brand like Fitbit, but it delivers everything you’d expect from a tracker—step count, distance covered, calories burned, sleep data, exercise tracking (with GPS capabilities, no less!), and smartphone notifications—at a fraction of the price.
