The first GPS bracelet — NO.1 F5, anything new about it

Recently NO.1 smartwatch releases a new model, the bracelet series NO.1 F5 Buy from here: https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/KKtick-F5-Independent-GPS-Fitness-band-Altimeter-Barometer-Thermometer-Sports-Watch-Fitness-Activity-Tracker/3334004_32844880749.html

As a fitness band, F5 is built for sports. It has built-in GPS sensor, independently, you can use the GPS without your phone. NO.1 takes advantages of the GPS in the sports. Cycling, climbing, running, it will record your trajectory, speed, time, distance and of course, the calorie burnt. Check the pics below, my colleague went to cycling weeks ago with the F5. This is the trajectory the F5 recorded, you can check this on the companion app. In the left window, click the map, you’ll get the full trajectory, like the right one.

As for climbing, this bracelet is more professional. The built in GPS sensor can record your route, the altimeter can real time display the height, you can see the increasing altitude with your legs moving. Beside, the real time changing Air-pressure, this is also very important when you climbing the mountains, it is important for your health.

Last but not least, the thermometer. F5 has built-in thermometer, not like the previous products, which receive the data from internet, it can real time display the temperature, just like the Casio watch, with a fire nearby, the result will increase rapidly. You don’t need to worry about the wrong positioning, wrong data/temperature like the previous products. Real time temperature measurement will give you the a correct result.1_副本

 

As a fitness band, F5 supports Heart rate measurement, calorie burnt, steps record; besides, the app can record the sports data, as you can see the left one is the sleep quality, below is the heart rate; and the right one is the calorie burnt. It will help you achieve fitness goals.

With good hardware and companion app, what users need is a durable frame, a waterproof structure. The frame is not metallic, as we know, metallic frame will influence the GPS signal, so we use some light but durable material to build up this tightly, waterproof structure, so you can have a better user experience.

Any question please feel free to comment, I’ll reply as soon as possible.

    I have a problem with time format (there is only 12h possibility). F5 actual FW is 1.58.6. I have used your offered SW http://www.chinawatchs.com/no-1-f5-how-to-manually-update-the-firmware/ to upgrade FW to 1.60.5, but w/o any success. The final message was “upload failed: GATT INVALID HANDLE”. I have tried and APP HPlus (version 3.1.7) there is info that “latest version already”. Why I can´t upgrade the FW ?
    The following messages gradually appear:
    upload – uploading (starting DFU-starting bootloader=disconnected-connecting-starting DFU-disconnecting)-upload failed: GATT INVALID HANDLE

        Hello Jon
        Not sure what you are referring to when you talk about a new interface. I have already the latest version. 1.60.5 installed and I do not see any particular interface when I connect the GPS. Can you please be a little bit more specific? Thanks

    Hello Jon, I already managed to sync with the hplus watch and the track and the map already appears to me. However it is very difficult to get the GPS signal. Is it possible that the smart watch will ever be able to connect with strava or have a better support app ????
    Thanks

    • Jon

      Hello Bruno, I know you runners all like Strava, but I’m afraid it isn’t able to connect to strava, our engineers are working on the HPlus to make it possible to export the GPX file. Hope they could add this feature in the Hplus.

    Hi Jon… Any progress with whataspp notification so far? Still using the hplus watch instead of hplus app because of it….. And also the brightness of the screen…. I remember long time ago we had a chat and. You told me about that brightness issue and the fact that you cannot see anything at all in day light conditions….. Any thing we can do about it?….. Really annoying….. Other than That, great watch and battery life

        hi there… Jon I know about the brightness Level 3…. I would like to know if you see any way your people can increase the brightness of the screen by firmware….. You will agree the watch is useless under direct sun light

    Hi Friend. Please. I Have a No.1 F5. They are good watches, but I want to ask if you can change the displayed time format?For example, at 3 o’clock in the afternoon to appear as 15:00 and not as 3:00? Thank you

        Hi, I installed the firmware according to the instructions. The time format is fine. After connecting your Bluetooth watch to Hplus, the time format will again change to 12h 🙁 I have to reboot the watch to factory settings.

            Hi, thank you for answer. I installed the firmware, but after connecting to Hplus, I set the time again to 12h format :-(. One more question. The pedometer shows very interesting values. My 10 steps are recorded as 70 on my watch 🙂

            Hello, I have been tracking that the transition to the 12h format is at 12:59. Then it will show 1:00 instead of 13:00. Where can I find new firmware information?

    Features Requested for F5:
    1) Altimeter that give altitude relative to 101.5 kPa
    2) Add Swim Sport
    3) Hplus full of bugs and translation to Italian is awful. Give a feature tu choice a diffrent language.

    • Jon

      Jan th, 2018 11:37 AM Reply

      Hello Lorenzo,

      The altimeter is a Relative height measuring. Not the same as the barometer measuring the Air-pressure.
      Although F5 is IP67 waterproof, we are not recommended to take it for swimming, because the barometer sensor, we could not create a highly sealed frame for it.
      The language of HPlus is the same as your phone…

    Hi. I have a no.1 f5 ( the third no.1 that I have had and I think the better one). But the smartwatch has a problem. Sometimes it loses the counting of steps, and It starts from O during the day. How could I solve the problem? Thanks

    Dear jon
    Hello there. I just received my NO. 1 F5 and I have a problem with my notifications in android .. I can see notifications from almost every aplication except from whatsapp. I cannot see any coming to my phone… Any suggestion? It is a bit confusing. Thanks

    One more issue I have found is that it is almost impossible…. (Almost is very optimistic) to see the screen outdoors….. Today it’s not a sunny day and I cannot see anything outside…. Any expected firmware to. Solve this issue? Otherwise is useless outdoors. Thanks

    One more issue…. The gps {after more than 30 minutes test outdoors} does not recognize my position at all. It says I am in Africa while I am in America…. Also the GPS time is 17:40 while my actual time is 12:40. Any idea how to setup properly the gps? Thanks
