LETSCOM Fitness Tracker HR review

LETSCOM Fitness Tracker HR review

I’ve always been a very health oriented person and I’ve always watched what I eat, took regular exercise and maintained what I always thought of as a healthy lifestyle. However, over the last few years I’ve noticed that I’m not as fit as I once was, or should I say as fit as the people in my social circle. For some reason, most of my friends seem to be fitter, sleeker and in more control of their day to day fitness levels then I have been. I decided that I must be doing something wrong and after much deliberation decided to ask my friend Sarah her secret and where I was going wrong. She told me a fact that truly shocked and surprised me. Sarah told me that the secret to her success was a fitness tracker.
I actually could relate to that, as I remember my big breakthrough in health, was when I started to use Garmin vivosmart (the first generation, already discontinued; now replaced with Garmin vivosmart HR). It did bring me the discipline in regular exercises as well as a trackable monitoring of my health-way progress.

Why choose the LETSCOM Fitness Tracker HR

I still love Garmin, but I also reach to other alternatives. Often because of pricing, but lately as well because the quality of the “cheaper end devices” is amazingly good. 
Many folks say that they use the fitness tracker app on their mobile phones and that’s enough for them. Well, they usually use it during their weekend walks on not regular bases. I have to say I do enjoy independent unit which is always on me and can be used while I live in tropical countries, especially during rainy seasons, when I get unexpectedly soaked during my walks. 
My friend Sarah shares my opinion. Also, she has a fitness tracker called LETSCOM. At first, I have to say, I wasn’t sure if I’ve never heard of it before. When I asked her to show me, that’s when she held out her arm and showed me the sleek and stylish looking Fitness Tracker HR (heart-rate) LETSCOM.
