The strap completely made of silicone has a closure system with a double claw metal flange and two fixings with internal stops that give us an excellent grip, wearing it is quite comfortable and it hardly moves.

If we press once we go to the blood pressure and electrocardiogram measurement mode, sport mode, pedometer, heart rate monitor. distance traveled, shutdown and calorie counter. By default the screen turns on automatically when it detects that we turn our hand to look at it since it has a gyroscope although it can be deactivated.

Inside the bracelet Star 49 we have a lithium battery of 100 mAh that gives us a correct autonomy, in a moderate use of the screen (we recommend deactivating the automatic ignition by turning the wrist) it can last us perfectly more than 7 days on a single charge and the recharge takes about an hour on a PC. The control app does not imply problems in the battery of our mobile from what we have verified.
Using the bracelet Star 49 For a few weeks we can say that it is an interesting product for the price that integrates many functions in the same device, some options that we do not have in the new Xiaomi Mi Band 3 or in the previous Xiaomi Mi Band 2. The autonomy is very good thanks to Its OLED screen, the control app on the mobile has not given us problems although as we have seen it is quite simple and perhaps it would appreciate more controls.
Without a doubt the most interesting point of the bracelet Star 49 It is its number of sensors although it is necessary to highlight the good fixing system of the bracelet. The core of the bracelet with integrated USB makes the protection IP67 It is very resistant although with so many underwater sensors the measurements can be activated a bit like crazy. In general, a highly recommended product if we are looking for an inexpensive bracelet with a large number of sensors.
