With Amazon Prime day upon us, everyone is on the lookout for the best deals
A lot of the fitness tech I have covered recently could be a bit too expensive for many people, either for financial reasons or you just don’t want to commit £100+ if you are just getting into fitness.
On the lower end of the market, there are some great options. It has been three years since I reviewed affordable options such as the Letsfit Fitness Trackers. Since then, bigger named brands have entered the market with ultra-affordable options, such as the Honor Band 5.
However, for the same price as those options, up and coming brand YoYoFit offers a smart watch-style fitness tracker which looks much like the Huawei Watch GT2 while only costing around £30.
YoYoFit Smart Watch Features
Feature-wise it is similar to the options you get from Huawei or Honor, the main thing is lacking is a built-in GPS chip, but it can connect to your smartphone for GPS assistance providing accurate tracking out outdoor activities.
The features include:
- 1.4-inch full touch colour screen
- Multiple sports modes to get real-time status during your workouts and connect to smartphone GPS for more precise real-time route and distance.
- Includes running, cycling, walking and more
- 24/7 heart rate monitoring with manual SPO2 readings
- Calorie counting
- Step counting
- Sleep monitoring
- Phone notifications such as calls, SMS, WhatsApp and Instagram.
- Music Player, Remote Camera, Sedentary Reminder, Alarm Clock, Stopwatch
- 7 day battery life
If you prefer a different design, they also offer a square-shaped smartwatch which looks very similar to the Apple Watch and offers the same features as this.
FitCloudPro and Phone Compatibility
The watch will work on either Android (4.4 or higher) or iOS (8.2 or higher), and the app you use with the watch is the FitCloudPro. The app offers many of the features you find on more expensive watches, so you can keep track of your high and low heart rate, giving you an idea of your overall cardiovascular health.
Price and Prime Day Deals
The watch normally sells for £39.99, but with Prime Day there is 20% off taking it down to £27.99. You can then get another 10% off with the code GOY8D3OM taking the final price down to just £25.19

YoYoFit Smart Watch Rating
Overall - 80%
A little over £25 for a basic smartwatch with fitness tracking features, notifications and 24/7 heart rate monitoring. It won't be as good as big brand names but for the price this would make a great Christmas gift or for someone just getting into fitness.
