The bracelet comes in Chinese by default. If you are not Chinese, you need to set the language to English. No other language is supported. To change the language enter the menu by pressing the long on/off button. First option is help menu with a "?" icon. Each tap to screen, you move to next menu item. Settings menu is with gear icon and language is the second option in settings menu. You can move up or down by touching upper or lower side of the screen. When you select the desired menu item, press the long button again to enter or select the menu item.
After setting the desired language, pairing the bracelet is piece of cake. Just initiate the bluetooth device search from your phone and when "Smart Bracelet" is found, tap on it and follow the steps. Only few steps involved.
Warning: I haven't seen any kind of verification during pairing. So, someone else may also discover and pair with your bracelet if it is not already connected to your phone. As a security measure, it is not discoverable by other phones when already connected with your phone.
Software: Download and install attached software to your phone. When you run it you will be able to change some settings.
LS12pro smart bracelet comes with charging cable, but not with a charger. However, this is not an issue, you can just charge it using your PC's USB port or use your smartphone's charger.
Review of functions:
I was not able to initiate music playing from the bracelet. But, when I start the music from the phone, I can listen it from the bracelet. It also displays the information about the playing mp3 file. Also, there is no possibility to control the player from the bracelet, such as skip, pause, stop etc...
When called, bracelet rings and vibrates. You can answer the call by pressing the long button. If you have a missing call you are not notified for it by bracelet. But you can see them if you go into missed calls menu item under the calls menu.
You can answer a call and talk from the bracelet. Even if you answer from the phone or initiate a call from the phone, you can only talk from the bracelet when it is connected. Sound quality is good and loud enough.
Remote Camera Control:
I was not able to start the camera from the bracelet.
You can read your SMS messages in your Inbox. You are also notified by an icon on the screen if you have unread SMS message.
You can record your voice or the sounds around you. You can also list of your previous recordings and play them. Quality is good. But, I am not sure for how long you can record your voice because of the small internal memory on bracelet. Also, when you connect the bracelet to your PC using USB cable, it is not recognized as removable storage or similar. So, you have no chance to copy your recorded clips to your PC.
When started, it vibrates and gives your wrist a massage. I think it is not very useful and only helps you to drain your battery faster.
You can search for contacts and make a call after selecting a contact.
It senses your body movements and counts your steps. I found it accurate but number of steps may jump several numbers at a time while playing with it in your hand.
I mainly liked the stylish looking, good sound quality and good standby battery life. It is very cheap and available in different colors. Also, suitable for unisex use.
I didn't like the small screen, which makes reading the things difficult. Text is wrapped into multiple lines. Remote camera function could be very useful when taking self photos without using a timer, but it does not work.
