  1. How long should the band stay charged. I have only had mine a few days, but it doesn’t stay charged longer than about 8 hours. I put it on at 6:30 this morning and it’s down to one bar right now at 2:30.

    1. I just got mine last week and mine doesn’t charge either. Tried both ports, tried a different charger, checked contacts are clean. Band connects to Blue Tooth if away from any other Blue tooth device like my keyboard which has a stronger signal. Blood pressure monitor doesn’t work either, always says 117/77 even when it is actually 145/89 or higher. Even though it connects to Blue tooth on the Android cell phone it won’t “bind” and on Profile site click on the green Pair it won’t do that either. Software won’t let you select degrees F instead of C and time won’t go to 12 hour even when you select 12 hour instead of 24H. How do I return to get one that works?

    2. I have a music icon on mine & now I can’t get rid of it to show anything else. How can I download music to it?

    3. Mine stays charged for 2-3 days. Are you sure it’s getting a full charge? Also, as with my android phone, you can’t hook it up and leave it charging all night. That burns the battery up. Charge it until it’s full and then unplug it.

  2. what does light sleep and deep sleep represent? Is light sleep like trying to get to sleep or what? Is deep sleep like REM sleep?

  3. My fitbit never shows the Bluetooth, what can I do to get it to pop so I can connect to the app?

  4. I am trying to charge for the first time. Shouldn’t there be an indicator that lights up? Mine is not showing anything–I have tried different USB ports and plugs with the same result. Is it DOA?

    1. Nope no indicator lights, BUT is it on or off? When it’s on, the battery icon will show, but you still have to push the button for it to light up.

  5. Bought the SW300, can’t get it to come on or pair with my phone. Wondering if my phone is to old, have a Samsung galaxie S4 mini, it is an Android 4.4.2 version. Please let me know if this will work with my phone, I like what it has to offer but need to return if it isn’t going to work with my phone.

  6. I received my Smart Band today.

    According to the manual I need to ‘Remove straps from display to reveal metal charging strips’,

    Is it really necessary I need to put extensive force on the rubber bands to remove them and to give access to the charging strips?

    Is there a video available showing what to do exactly?

  7. The app kills my phone. I installed it and started having massive battery drain and constant re-boots. I uninstalled it and phone worked fine. I re-installed it and same troubles. I turned off notifications and still issues. I have a moto Z2 force.

  8. Is there an easier way to get the band off for charging? its so hard to remove. Or is there a device I could just sit the band on for charging?

  9. My sleep doesn’t track am I doing something wrong? My foot steps track my blood pressure and heart rate and everything else except my sleep?

  10. I’ve had my device for less than a year and I can no longer get it to sync with my phone. Not sure what happened. I tried to uninstall and reinstall to no avail. Slightly pissed, I did enjoy it while it worked.

    1. My device has downloaded and now I can not secure the band and I do not have the manual, if you can help me, thank you
      mi dispositivo se a descargado y ahora no consigo asegurar banda y no tengo el manual , haber si me pueden ayudar gracias

    2. Hi i am currently having the same problem. it connects vis bluetooth but it does not bind. i cannot use it i tried another phone as well.

  11. I used this smart band from Wednesday, 5th Feb 2020, but there is no record of the steps for 5-9 Feb 2020, only the steps for today was recorded???
    How to get the data of previous week?
    Thank you

    1. Can’t get watch to record sleep. Tried to sync with iphone heart apt, didn’t work. any suggestions?

      1. How do you expect it to track your sleep? If it did that it’s track your breathing all day too. It shuts itself off.

        1. Actually it states sleep tracker is one of the functions. And it works though I’ve only found the results in the app instead of on the band itself.
          It doesn’t go to sleep as you said per se, but the display is not lit up so it’s asleep in that regard. But unless changed it automatically starts sleep monitoring at 10pm and, if I understand correctly, it tracks the different sleep stages based on vitals, like heart rate and such. It then maps in the app the stages you cycle through, REM etc, and you see how long you were lightly under, or were deeply asleep, and how many times you woke up throughout.
          I’m not sure though if the sleep tracker mode is able to be prompted on purpose at different times and whatnot, or of it’s stuck only in that mode at the automatic 10pm time.

  12. I’ve had my watch for 2 months and now when I charge it the only thing that works is my time of day and only periodically. It still displays on my phone but not the watch and it keeps saying it is not synced to my phone. But then it will start working after a couple of hrs.
    What can I do to correct this???

  13. I would like to chart blood pressure, heart rate & sleep. How can I download this information to Excel (for example).

  14. My device stopped pairing and bluetooth won’t work. Is there a way for factory reset? I can’t find any information on how to reset it.

  15. How do I get a replacement for the non-charging band, the one with the slots for the fastening tongue?

  16. I see lots of questions but no answers. My tracker seems to be working well except for the sleep time. Is there anything else I need to do?

  17. footsteps no longer work,nor does miles or kcal. Only time, heart rate and bloodpressure still function? The band is till synced to the app on my phone?

  18. The time and step counter are jumping up faster than the steps In actually doing. What can I do to stop that?

  19. I received this item the other day. I put in the usb port in computer and left to charge twice and nothing. This is a dud. Dont’ waste your money!

  20. My display does not seem to be working. It will indicate that it is charging and when the alarm activates but at no other time. I can still use the app on my phone to activate the heart rate and blood pressure functions, but the screen on the band does not display anything (will display results on the app). Any suggestions?

  21. My band does not keep track of my steps if I have to charge it during the day. Example 8510 steps by 11am. Charged it and now showing only the steps after charging. 95 steps.

  22. This vendor provides shit support. Sleep tracking never worked from day 1 and they have not reponded to me emails.

    Cheap is always crap. Nobody makes quality anything anymore.

  23. I think I’m going to love it if I can get it to count the steps correctly. I have been going to Planet Fitness and doing the “physical therapy” machine, sit and work both legs and arms. At the start of my workout, my band said 607 steps. After 30 min the machine said 3029 steps and my band said 2775 steps. Another day before workout, 448 steps, after 60 min the machine said 6031 and my band said 4687 steps. Is there something I need to do? I put it in my pocket that didn’t work either.

  24. I can’t figure out how to change mine from military time to normal time
    Can anyone please help me

  25. WON’T CHARGE! I bought 3 for family members. Mine came with a charge and worked well for 3 days until I had to charge again… wouldn’t charge up. The other 2 would NEVER charge.

  26. Suddenly my yoho sport band bluetooth not turning on,so i cant connet to my yoho app again pls what can i do now

    1. Pull hard and wiggle back and forth ;-). Make sure you position it “just right” in the USB port.

  27. This is a waste of money, real piece of ****. Could not get the band off to charge it. Followed instructions on removal of band and damm the connection piece completely broke off rendering the entire watch useless. DON’T BUY THIS. THE PRICE IS NOT WORTH IT.

  28. The hours are only in am and pm and impossible to find the setting on 24 hours that I had at the beginning and moreover the sleep is wrong not good material 000000000
    Les heures ne sont plus qu en am et pm et impossible de retrouver le réglage sur 24h que j avais au début et de plus le sommeil est faux pas bon materiel 000000000

  29. The hours are on 12 and in am for at the beginning I had 24 hours it is disturbing impossible to regulate and for the sleep it is wrong not good material zero not happy
    Les heures son sur 12 et en am pour au début j avais sur 24h c est perturbant impossible de régler et pour le sommeil c est faux pas bon matériel zero pas contente

  30. How do I re-bind/re-pair my band to the app? It will be bound, then undo itself.
    The app says it’s bound and “syncing”, but it’s not.

  31. Got mine a week ago. piece of crap. keeps disconnecting from the app and everything clears. sleep counter has never worked. I can’t turn the thing off. No way the blood pressure monitor is correct. way off. I emailed about returning. I can but i have to pay shipping and a 15% restocking fee. Seriously? i have to pay restocking for a defective item? totally wrong. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY. THEY SELL JUNK!!!! BUY SOMETHING GOOD ELSE WHERE. PISSED OFF!!!

  32. All the questions being asked are what I want to know also.
    Now my other question is, WHY THE ADMIN NOT REPLYING TO OUR QUESTIONS?

  33. What is the MAC functionality? The last one on the list.
    Qu’est ce que la fonctionnalité MAC ? La dernière de la liste.

  34. Device doesn’t show up in device search. All settings are correct, Bluetooth is enabled, all other Bluetooth devices are forgotten. Swipe down in device search and nothing appears.

  35. Hi there. Is there a way to manually add sleep and steps in the app if I forgot to put my watch on.

  36. I have all these questions. Gotta see if it is returnable. Got it to sink once and lost it.

  37. Is it true that you can only see your daily data (steps) with the app and cannot look back to other days (a weekly overview or the like)?

    Klopt het dat je met de app alleen je dagelijkse gegevens (stappen) kunt zien en niet terug kunt kijken naar andere dagen (een weekoverzicht oid)?

  38. Cant get the bands off to charge it. What is the trick to getting them to release? How ugly can I get with it before breaking it?

  39. Blood pressure doesn’t function . Instructions poor ! Looks like first year English speaker translated from Chinese. How much would a proper translation cost ??? Also no tech support !

  40. Hello, my yoho resets or turns off every time I want to use it when I touch the screen button. Does anyone know the solution?
    Hola, mi yoho se resetea o apaga cada vez que lo quiero usar cuando toco el boton de pantalla. Alguien sabe la solucion?

    1. You may be able to disconnect the band from the watch and plug the watch directly into a USB charger (on a computer or other USB power source)

  41. Has anyone had support or at least an answer?. I just got mine yesterday and it only works when it’s charging, I thought maybe if I leave it overnight. But the second I wore it, it doesn’t turn on and if I plug it once again it’s drained of power. Any suggestions on how I can make it work while wearing it.

  42. I have an Android 10 Moto G Power and I am trying to connect to the Yoho Sport Band GM115 t0 my phone but it will not connect I have followed all the directions and it still will not connect. I have downloaded the Yoho Sport app to my phone and filled out the information on that and it shows it is bound but when I click on trying to find the band it keeps telling me to bind to the device first or if trying to get into the settings it tells me the same. Where can I go for help on this?

  43. the counter works off of arm movement. it does not see your feet. when walking arms move with legs.

  44. I have a music setting but there’s nothing about it in the manual. Day one….. waiting to see how long the battery lasts. Everything so far works great. Uploaded my own pic with time. Broke one side trying to open it, super glued and used other side for charging. Pretty good item for what I won in an auction. 83 steps so far. BP and HR and pulse are accurate.

  45. My Fitbit just will show time with step screen, can’t get it to move forward. Is there a contact number for customer service. Was working fine till yesterday.

  46. Not very. I broke mine. Had a second one. Now I use a small flat screwdriver to pry band off the display. Once it is started to separate, side wiggling gets it off the rest of the way.

  47. I show the Bluetooth icon on my watch but it still won’t bind and I’ve done all the instructions multiple times
