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.

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.

As a fitness band, F5 supports Heart rate, Blood oxygen, Blood pressure measurement, 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.

  1. There is a possibility connect to external heart rate monitor via Bluetooth?
    They record the GPS track file?

    1. Hello Yaroslav, I’m sorry, I’m afraid not. But it supports GPS tracking, it has built-in GPS sensor.

  2. Hi,
    1) Can I export track to Strava, for example (by file or other)?
    2) Do you have information about current pace (min/km)?
    3) Do you have information about current distance?

    1. Hello Vadim,
      1, Nope, unfortunately, the sports data can’t export to Strava, we’ll try to contact Strava, maybe they could help us. 🙂
      2, Yes. 3, Yes. 🙂

  3. Hello Domingos,
    1, nope, you can only check the tracks in the apps.
    2, yes, it has interval training and laps
    3, sorry, I just got the answer from our engineers, this chip doesn’t support this function, you can’t export GPX file from the training. 🙁

  4. You said–> this chip doesn’t support this function, you can’t export GPX file from the training.

    It’s not the problem of the chip. If the F5 can send and sync its data into HPlus App, then HPlus Developer should add the “GPX Export” feature into their next update of the App

    1. Sorry, I’m not an coder, that’s how the engineers told me. And I asked them many times about this question, they were busy with projects, hope they could make it soon. Any news I’ll let you know.

      1. Hi Jon, the HPlus app shows firmware version 2.1.3, it says it is the latest when I try to update. Please let me know if there something I can do for more consistent sleep tracking. Thanks!

  5. I recently bought and tested in a trek my new F5.
    Positives: lightweiht, very nice, comfortable, long life battery.
    Negatives:
    – light and contrast of display are insufficient, control of light in setup does not work, is useless!
    – Heartbeat count, calories count and steps count are too much excessive.
    Calories and steps counts are incredibly different in the same day if you watch on the main display, in the inner page of the day count and in the activity page (it’s really impossible that the activity count of a 5 ours trek is double than the 24h count!).
    – After an altitude reset, for a relative measure, it semms impossible to turn back to the absolute measure.
    – export of the track in the app is absolutely useless if I cannot export a GPX file on my Mac!

    Please, improove these points on the watch and on the app!

    1. Thanks for your suggestion. I’ll tell our engineers about your suggestion. About the heartbeat count, calories, it is inspired by the Garmin, it will count the adult’s daily calories burnt.(even you did not do any exercise) About the altitude, it is a relative height measurement, you can manually set the sea level.

    2. Thanks Jon for the reply.
      I can report as an example of the error in the count of the calories yesterday and today.
      Yesterday: 3,3km 4000steps 288cal.
      Today: 2,4km 3000steps 1400(!!!)cal.
      1400cals are really impossible!!!!

      Please, suggest to the developers to:
      -fix the calories cslculation
      -fix the possibility to connect the H+ app with iOS Health (it’s claimed to be possible at the splash screen, but there is no possibility in Health app).
      -improve the possibility to export a gpx file.

      At the moment, the app with no connection with Apple Health and no possibility to export a gpx file is useless.
      And the watch, with the erratic count of cals and hearthbeats is useless for training.

      Many Thanks

      1. Thanks for your suggestion, Marangoni. About the calorie problem, I asked our engineers about this. They said, it is possible, sports calories burnt will less than daily life. You need to go to the app to check the real calories burnt in the sport, but not the whole days. This design is the same as the Garmin.

        About the GPX file, I’m afraid that F5 won’t support this. Anyway, any good news I’ll let you know.

      2. Ok, thanks for clarifications.
        And about the connection between H+ app and Health app, claimed in the splash screen?
        In Apple Health I cannot find the possibility to receive data from H+…

        1. Hello Marangoni, sorry, it is not possible for Apple Health to receive data from H+. About the splash screen, normal use, you won’t encounter this problem, but when you want to make a video about it, the screen will blink in front of the camera.

  6. Hi jon- when I view a recorded track there is no map detail in the background, only the blue line of my track. How do I see my recorded track over a google map/imap background?

  7. Hello
    How to solve the problème of contrast: unusable in the day time. The 3 level of contrast do nothing!
    Best regards
    Didier

    1. connect the watch to your app on phone ,choose sync the data,the watch will the same language as your phone

  8. Hi, I have problem with F5 HR measure.
    In automatic mode its showing 71 BPM most of the day. I can correct it by manual read from the menu an it goes down to real value of 50 – 60 BPM. Then when it comes back to main screen, after few minutes its jumping back to 71BPM!!!
    shouldnt
    When i took it off my wrist and start HR measurement pointing sensor to the wall, it shows 117 BPM. Shouldn’t it be 0 BPM?

    There is something really wrong with this watch. Maybe its due to too short period of measurement in automatic mode. In manual its starting high and need few second to come down to real value. IMO automatic read should be performed more frequent and for a longer period of time to provide real values.

    1. the bpm is correct when your wrist is touching the watch. For example, when you are running,the bpm is wrong because the watch and wrist are not touching

  9. Hello Jon, My watch cannot turn on, i already download a firmware update, but when i select the device, my device do not show up, any solution?

  10. Hi. Need to buy a protector film screen for F5 Model.. 0.95 inch you sell that product or can i buy some another one for protect my wqtch and give him.loonger life thx for reply
