Now let the review begin..
MevoFit Drive R100 Run Smart Fitness Band Review:
It comes in a black & red box, in the box, you’ll find the Drive Run band with a user manual. The band looks beautiful.
I got the black color variant. It had some amount of charge left in it so I checked the screen brightness, the UI, features and overall functioning of the band after unboxing it.
The product looked very promising from the beginning. As it is the festive season in India & me being from Kolkata where Durga Puja is going on, I got to use the band for approx 5 days only.
I wore it while doing pandal hopping. It enabled me to test it’s step counter, distance measurement and battery back up.
Below I’m mentioning in detail part by part how did I feel using this activity tracker from MevoFit.
Read till the last to know it better.
I have used Mi & Honor fitness bands previously and what I learned is that gadgets like this with simple UI are the best.
It helps first-time users to get used to it in a short span of life. And MevoFit has just that kind of UI that you’ll like. It didn’t exaggerate anything.
N.B.: It also can 6 customized UI faces.
One of the important things other than the accuracy of any fitness tracker is the quality of the straps it is providing. By far Drive R100 Run has the best quality of straps. If compared with my Mi HRX, this one is superior.
The screen of the MevoFit drive Run will not disappoint you at all. The 0.96inch big TFT colorful display screen which as 128*64 HD resolution. It is enough for any activity tracker.
I see many people complain about the brightness of the screen of their fitness band that they can’t see anything under sunlight. I found no such issue, you can see the on-screen activities under the sun.
The touch is also good too.
P.S. The whole screen is not touch enabled, a small bar is there below the screen, which works on touching over it. Touch for scroll, hard press to select or switching off/on the band.
Now it’s time to tell the real story, how’s the tracking? Very good.
Before I start talking about my experience of using it. I’d like to mention the types of activity it can track:
Normal day to day activities like: walking, running, riding and hiking
Sports activities like: cycling, yoga, football, basketball, fitness, tennis, baseball, skiing, dancing
Health: Heartbeat & Bp measurement
To test the accuracy of step counting I used my Huawei fitness app along with Drive R100 Run band to compare the reading at last. At first walked for around 11 minutes covering roughly about 100-200m. When I checked the steps Mevofit showed 1865 steps while my huawei app showed 1938 steps.
Used this band in cycling mode, it tracked the total distance traveled by me almost accurately did compare it with my Huawei fitness app. The cycling mode is very easy to set up just hover over to exercise icon hard press on the touchpad and then select the desired mode.
I haven’t found one prefect smart fitness tracking band that accurately trackers heartbeat. Yes and this too falls in the same category like all other ones.
I have noticed one thing that when you switch on this band the initial heartbeat rating is ZERO but after a few minutes it goes up to 76 and finally settled at 176 after 2 days. I did not used the band except to perform this experiment.
So magically it reads heartbeat out of nowhere!
Bp monitoring is just fine. The blood pressure monitoring report doesn’t directly get sync to the
Charging & Battery
One of the good things about MevoFit Drive R100 Run is the battery. With average to some heavy usage the battery lasted for 3 days. Charging time is very less gets fully charged with 1 hour or so.
But one infuriating thing about the the charging process is that you need to charge it via desktop or laptop. It doesn’t have any usb charging port.
You need to insert one usb charging end of the smart band in your desktop/laptop’s usb ports to charge it.

This is what impressed me very much.
