Famar Activity Tracking Watch Review

The Famar Activity Tracking Watch aims to give you an activity tracker hidden away rather than one that really stands out.

It’s available in a range of colours and watch strap styles, you see the the black version which has a red stitching in the review video below.

The watch itself has a nice simple look to it and certainly doesn’t stand out as being a watch that connects to your mobile.

It has a leather band, one that needed a little time to break in, and is a little chunkier than I’m use to. The strap can be quickly changed via the quick release system.

The watch also comes with a screwdriver and 2 replacement batteries as well as spare screws, just in case.

To make use of the watch you’ll need to download the app for you mobile, you can’t even set the correct time without this app. I had a few issues with my HTC M9 and the app, it kept crashing whenever I tried to set the time, however having fed back my problem I was pleased to find the app received a minor update which resolved this issue, so if you do encounter any problems be sure to feed them back.

Once paired you set the time in the app and that updated the phone. The app also allows you to select what sort of notifications you want, for example when you get a call or text the watch vibrates and a small light blinks discreetly.

You also have the option to use this as a remote control for your phones camera, so you could prop your camera up somewhere and then press the watch button to activate the shutter.

It’s an OK watch, nice and discrete, which is accompanied by a poor app, the menus aren’t very clearly labeled and there is no way to share the fitness data with other apps such as Google Fit or Withings.

At the time of review this seems expensive for the limited functionality you get, especially when there are full touch screen smart watches available for less than half the price of this.
