Review of the latest Haylou Solar fitness band

Rohan Mathew

The latest Heylou Solar band offers a smartwatch-like design at a very affordable price. The feature that distinguishes it is a round dial instead of the elongated ones found in typical fitness bands. We invite you to review this latest Hayloy Solar sports band.

Haylou Solar band – basic information


In the box we get a Haylou Solar with a dedicated charging cable and user manual. There is a protective sticker on the watch to prevent scratching during shipping.


The watch has an LCD screen with a large display area. It is much larger than, for example, Mi Banda 4 or 5. The watch case is made of metal, which gives it a look and style comparable to much more expensive smartwatches.

The watch glass is slightly recessed into the case, which gives it little protection. In addition to the touch screen, we also get one button to navigate the Haylou Solar menu.

On the bottom of the smartwatch there is an optical heart rate sensor, covered with a safety glass.

Haylou Solar uses a standard 22mm wide silicone strap that is easy to replace. Haylou has even designed a strap with a quick-release fastener to make it easier to replace the strap if you feel the need to adjust it to one that better suits your outfit.

The pairing process is extremely easy as you just need to scan the QR code, download the app and pair Haylou Solar with your smartphone.
Once the pairing process is complete, we will be guided through a setup guide that will ask us to enter your personal details to enable us to provide more accurate details. When we’re done, the rest of the Haylou Fit app will be displayed.


Now let’s take a closer look at the fitness features. The watch has a function of continuous heart rate monitoring. 24/7 monitoring takes measurements every 10 minutes and creates a nice graph that you can see in the app.

Sleep monitoring is as good as expected. The watch will accurately detect when we fall asleep and when we wake up by combining data from motion sensors and heart rate sensors. Haylou Solar is much thinner than “real” smartwatches, so it won’t disturb you while you sleep.

The smartwatch will count the number of real-time steps we take during the day.

For those who are more athletic, we have twelve sporting activities tracked including rowing and cycling. Haylou Solar has an IP68 rating, so you can take it for a bath or use it in the rain.


In addition to tracking and monitoring your fitness functions, there are also a few other options available. There is a breathing guide to help you slowly inhale and exhale, timer and stopwatch functions as well as music controls. These features bring it a bit closer to a full-fledged smartwatch. The music control is really convenient, we have a play / pause button and forward and back buttons. We can also download the weather forecast from the device, so we can quickly decide whether to take an umbrella with us.
At Haylou Solar we have 5 watch faces to choose from – each one looks great.
