Riversong is a Chinese company which is into consumer durables such as power banks, smartwatches and other smart home accessories.

The Wave O2 from Riversong is a feature-rich fitness tracker that comes with an attractive price tag that even shames some of the high-end smart bands on sale in the market at present.

Build quality/design

The Riversong Wave O2 comes with a silicone wrist strap with a metallic watch like the stopper. The holes on the strap make it an easy fit for wrists of different sizes.

The strap feels really strong and solid, so does the clip at the end. The main device, the band itself gets detached from the band easily with a gentle push at the ends.

The display blends seamlessly with the band and looks like a premium product.

Display

The Display on the Riversong Wave O2 is a 0.96-inch TFT LCD. This is one of the best displays we have seen on a budget fitness tracker in the market.

The relatively large display makes the navigation easier and the operations much simpler.

The colourful screen is actually a delight to look at, especially with the changeable interfaces.

Sensors

The Riversong Wave O2 comes loaded with all the sensors that you can imagine and then some.

The dynamic heart rate monitor inside provides an accurate measure of your heart activity level.

There is a hematomanometer in this tracker that will record the blood pressure levels along with a SpO2 sensor for measuring oxygen levels in the bloodstream.

These are some of the functions that you can’t even get with some of the overpriced fitness trackers in the market.

Smart features

This device comes with all the necessary sports activity tracking features such as calorie, step and sleep calculator.

Apart from these, the smartphone integration features such as call and message notifications, alarms, find my device makes this band a very useful companion.

This device connects with smartphones via Bluetooth 4.0 protocol and is compatible with both iOS as well as Android devices.

Battery life

The Riversong Wave O2 comes with a 90mAh Li-ion battery which will last for about 5 days on a single charge.

Since there is a lot of sensors inside and the screen is a TCT LCD colour panel, getting 5 days of battery life in our opinion is excellent.

Also, to charge the device, there is no need to plug in the tracker device into a separate charging module.

There is inbuilt USB port within the tracker so that you can directly plug into your laptop or power bank to get it charged.

Verdict

The Riversong Wave O2 is the best fitness tracker/smart band you can buy under Rs.2,000 in the market right now.

Loaded with sensors, this device provides an accurate analysis of your health and fitness which can result in an improved lifestyle if you really wish to stay healthy.

The colour LCD display is a delight to look at.

With call and message notifications directly in front of your eyes, you don’t need to take out the smartphone from the pocket when you’re in a hurry.

2. Lenovo HW01 Plus

Runner-Up Pick
Runner-Up Pick
  • Aesthetically pleasing design
  • IP67 water resistance
  • One year warranty

Yes, the Lenovo.

The company that has been once an active smartphone manufacturer in the country has now expanded its offering to devices such as fitness bands and power banks.

The HW01 Plus is the first edition of a budget activity tracker cum fitness band.

The company banks on the new PAI technology to market their fitness band in the market.

Design and build quality

The Lenovo HW01 Plus is one of the best looking fitness trackers priced under Rs.2,000 available in the market.

Available in two colours – green and black, the design is very attractive and is more of a fashion statement than a regular boxy fitness tracker.

The straps are interchangeable and by spending a couple of hundred rupees you can get a refreshed look everytime you wear a different attire.

The build quality, as we expect from a company like Lenovo is top class. The band feels well build and solid, so does the strap.

Display

The Lenovo HW01 Plus features a 0.88-inch OLED display that is bright enough to be legible under direct sunlight.

The display orientation is vertical on this fitness tracker. You may at first find it a bit odd to look at this display, but in the due course of time, you’ll get used to it.

There is a small touch-sensitive button on the bottom side of the display to navigate through the menus and switch between various metrics.

Sensors

The Lenovo HW01 Plus comes with a dynamic heart rate monitor on board that gives out an accurate measure of how fast your heart beats at a particular instance.

Lenovo banks on a new technology called PAI (Personal Artificial Intelligence) to help you lead a better, healthy life.

PAI’s (Personal Activity Intelligence) revolutionary algorithm makes sense of your personal heart rate data, giving you a simple number that shows how much activity you need to live a longer, healthier life.

The Lenovo HW01 Plus is one of the few budget fitness trackers that comes with PAI technology on board.

Features such as motion tracking, sleep monitoring also come standard with this device.

There is an anti-sleep feature which will let the drivers stay awake while driving with a short burst of vibrations at regular intervals.

Silly it may seem, but this feature has the potential to save lives.

Water resistance

The Lenovo HW01 Plus has a IP67 certification for water resistivity.

This means you can take out this fitness tracker in any weather and it will still perform the same as it was before.

Light swimming also won’t damage the internals but it is advised not to use the tracker fully submerged in the water for longer durations of time.

Battery life

The Lenovo HW01 Plus provides an approximate battery life up to 5 days with continuous usage.

Charging once in five days is not an issue as these devices packs in a small Li-ion battery inside which will charge up pretty quickly.

With the USB direct plug feature, this device can be easily charged on the go from a power bank or reverse charging supported smartphone.

Verdict

If you are in the market in search of an elegantly designed smart fitness tracker that provides an accurate overview of your health, this is it.

With a clean and crisp OLED display up front, it can double up as a smartphone companion to get notified about the calls and texts as well as a watch to check the time.

3. Mi band HRX edition

Best Battery Life
Best Battery Life
  • Exceptional standby time
  • Simplistic and intuitive app
  • Interchangeable Straps

Xiaomi was one of the first companies to bring in a fitness band to the country with their original Mi band.

It didn’t have a screen and came with LED indicators instead.

The Mi Band HRX is a trimmed down version of the Mi band 2 which comes with an OLED screen for easy interaction with the device rather than taking out the smartphone to monitor everything.

Design and build quality

The Mi band HRX edition has a minimal design and looks almost similar to its higher-priced sibling, the Mi band 2.

The silicone strap is really lightweight and comfortable to wear around. There are straps in different colours available to purchase from the Mi store.

There is a physical button below the display to move back and forth the options on the screen. The tracker unit itself is made of aluminium alloy and feels durable and solid.

The strap is made of thermoplastic elastomer and is very flexible.

Overall, the build quality seems to be really nice for the asking price.

Display

The Mi band HRX comes equipped with a 0.42-inch OLED display. The display is horizontal and can be read without any problems even under direct sunlight.

Having an OLED display has also other benefits such as improved efficiency when it comes to battery consumption.

Once you pair the Mi band HRX with your smartphone over Bluetooth, calls and text notifications can be seen on the screen and can be rejected or marked as read right away by clicking the physical button.

Sensors

The Mi band HRX is not a complete fitness tracking package, to be honest.

Wonder why it is priced lower than the competitors?

Well, It lacks a heart rate monitor.

But usual features such as step counter, sleep tracker, burned calorie calculator is present and works pretty well.

The Mi Fit App that can be downloaded from the Apple app store and Google Play store is very simplistic and provides a lot of info on your workouts and other performance metrics.

The data measurements are very accurate and provide an accurate summary of your daily workout schedule.

Miscellaneous

Yes, the Mi band HRX edition is water resistant and comes with an IP67 certification.

This means you can take this device out with you no matter what weather is it outside.

With the tight integration with the smartphone ecosystem, this device can be used as a password replacement when it is paired with your Android smartphone.

With the band in hand, you can unlock the device without having to enter a password.

Battery life

This is where the Mi band HRX trumps other smart bands by a long distance.

The 70mAh Li-ion battery inside is not the largest capacity battery found on a fitness tracker, but with excellent hardware optimizations, Xiaomi has managed to make this device lasts up to two weeks on a single charge.

The only gripe with the charging of this device is that the tracker module has to be taken out of the strap and fitted onto the separate charger which is a cumbersome process.

Verdict

The Mi band HRX is the perfect device for you if you are into jogging.

The accurate pedometer and the long-lasting battery life will make this device one of your favourites in no time for sure.

If you don’t mind the omission of a heart rate sensor, this cheap fitness tracker is one of the best in the market priced under Rs.2,000.

The GOQii fitness tracker comes with a bundled subscription that will let you access more features such as the personal coach who will guide you through various workout required to stay healthy for a period of time.

Build quality and design

Being a relatively inexpensive fitness tracker, the GOQii comes with a silicone strap that is comparatively thinner and lightweight.

The tracker module in itself is small and fits perfectly into the position between the strap.

Since the strap is relatively lighter, special care has to be given to the device when it is removed for charging.

Giving too much pressure will result in breakage of the strap or some damage to the display.

Sensors

It’s interesting to note that even a cheap fitness tracker like the GOQii comes equipped with a heart rate monitor for better measurement of your heart beats while doing exercises.

This sensor is pretty accurate and gives almost the same results as from other expensive trackers.

Along with this, the GOQii can receive and display notifications from your smartphones. Third-party applications such as WhatsApp and Messenger are supported as well.

This device comes with a USB port attached to the module and can be plugged directly into a power source for juicing up the battery.
