About Maxfit G3 Smart Watch

The smartwatch market is showing no signs of slowing down, with almost every major tech company releasing a version.  Whether it’s phone companies creating a device to pair with their smartphones or fitness-focused brands releasing the latest in exercise tracking, there’s something for everyone.

However, one trend that seems to have persisted is the proliferation of off brand smartwatches, such as the Maxfit G3.  These companies are trying to break into the low end of this market, offering budget watches that claim to offer enough features to justify the purchase. 

But are they actually worth it?  We’ll break it all down in this review.

How Does it Work?

The promotions for the Maxfit G3 make many incredible claims regarding its countless features. The developers say that it has the capabilities of a fitness tracker, health monitor, and smart device in one. 

 

They claim that it can:

  • make phone calls
  • count steps
  • monitor sleep
  • relay message alerts
  • measure blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen, and BPM
  • take photos
  • pair with iPhone and Android
  • be submerged in one meter of water up to 30 minutes

That’s quite the impressive list that would contend with top of the market offerings from the likes of Apple and Samsung.  The creators claim they can do all this at an entry level price point because the Maxfit G3 is a direct to consumer brand. This means they can eliminate many of the traditional costs that bigger companies incur.

While you can use the Maxfit G3 without having your phone on, the features are controlled through the smartphone app.  You will have to carefully read the instruction manual to learn how to use all the functions and the USB quick release wireless charging connector.

Cost And Price Plans

Currently the Maxfit G3 retails for $59.95.  You will also gain marginal discounts if you purchase more than one device.

Customer Service

If you need assistance you can contact a representative at their phone number 1-844-329-1300 or by email at [email protected]

They claim to offer a 30 day window for returns, their policy states that you will need to contact them to obtain an RMA number to initiate the return.  You will then have to ship the smartwatch at your own expense to the following address:

FDC RETURNS, P.O. Box 61553 Savannah, GA 31420

There is also a restocking fee for opened or damaged goods up to 25% of the original purchase price.

The company's terms and conditions also mention enrollment into a video subscription service for a monthly charge of $8.95. So be very cautious when making your purchase to ensure you don’t sign up for something extra.

Competitors and Alternatives

There’s no shortage of smartwatches on the market, starting with the big names previously mentioned to staples like the Fitbit and Garmin watches.  Before deciding on a product, it is advisable to narrow down what you want out of the watch first.

After you’ve made your list of priorities, go with a product that addresses your main needs best.  For instance, a lot of the watches are geared towards sports performance.  So, if that’s what you’re after, go with an athletic brand that specializes in biometrics.

Is Maxfit G3 Legit or is it a Scam?

At this time, it’s hard to recommend this product as there are too many red flags.  You probably came across an ad for this watch on a popular news site.  What you haven’t seen is that these ads have been around for years with little changing except the product name.

On our own site we have reviews of the Oshen Watch, MaxWatch, and Koretrack Smart watch.  All have nearly identical sales pages and all have a plethora of customer complaints.  It appears these companies purchase their watches overseas and continually rebrand to stay ahead of the bad reviews.

While some customers have had decent experiences with these types of products, the majority complain about the products simply not working, having battery issues, difficulty pairing, or just never arriving after the order was placed.

It doesn’t help that there isn’t much information about Maxfit G3 online, aside from the positive reviews on their own website.

We know it’s hard to pass up a good deal, but in this case it might just be worth it to buy a name brand and, despite paying more, have the peace of mind that goes along with it.

I ordered this for my husband. It would not connect to our phones. We tried all instructions given. Still would not connect. I called and was sent video, you guessed it wouldn't connect. I called for 2 weeks finally got text. Wanted me to sell it to family member...really...

Finally got address to send it back with a special number...had to return it on my dime and they had to receive in 2 weeks. Come on it's the mail. Could only send it USPS...I finally got my return cost me $84.01 and my return was only $65.54....huh THIS IS A SCAM...

Terrible product/ Terrible customer service

I got Maxfit 3 watch for my husband. It would not connect to his phone. We tried, our son-in-law (who connected 3 apple smartwatches) couldn't get it to connect. I message them. I got step by step instruction which can with watch. I had IT guy I know to get it to connect without any luck.

I sent another message. Was told to watch video. Still won't connect. I sent message I wanted to return it for refund. I was told to see if another family member would want it. Or try to sell it online. No I wanted to return it and wanted my money back.

After 10 message back and forth. I had to call my charge card and get them involved. So I finally got address to send it back with a number they gave me to put on package.

They only accept packages from USPS. I mailed it next morning...now I have to wait until they decide they have it. I had UPS store verify watch turned on before they packed it...can't wait to see how much more drama I have to endure...I wont buy this watch for anyone....company slow in response and even slower in action ☹

What the heck most people spend more at one meal at fast food stop.

I am an 80 yr male who buys cheap tech. I wanted to learn a little about smart watches so bought the Maxfit G3. I have sent email to their support and email is not accepted. My gmail sent repeat sends for three days and still no response. Bad sign. I would suggest that it would appeal to pre-school child maybe up to 2nd grade. They would use it about like they use momma's flip phone with no battery.

The only thing I can vouch for is that the clock seems to keep time. I wanted to have chronometer stop watch but I can't find a stopwatch function(I don't believe it is there.) The app FitPro has a motion section which has a gps tracker which probably wouldn't get you home. I tested it outside and walked one block and the tracker has me crossing the street once. I have used it inside and it does record and track is inside the building.

Blood pressure does give numbers mine has never been so good. Pulse is recorded but I haven't had my nurse wife check it out. I have no idea whether the Saturated Oxygen per cent is close because I really don't believe those that people buy to stick on your finger for the same price as the MaxFit G3.

My conclusion is that it is best thought of as a toy for children to act like daddy and mommy and it doesn't cost $400.

Scammers are losers

Do not buy the Maxfit G3!! It is not what they say. I've been trying to get a hold of someone for a refund but looks like I got scammed.

G3 Maxfit is GARBAGE and company is crooked!!

I have tried to use the G3 Max Fit for about 2 months. It is past their 30 day warranty and will not allow a return or supply a replacement part for the cheap plastic button that is used to latch the straps together on my wrist. The nub on the button attachment broke off to reveal it is not a metal part, but a flimsy plastic part. This means I cannot wear the watch or get any functionality from it.

The limited value from the watch was the step counter which agreed with a step tracker on cell phone. Pulse and O2 data also seemed reasonable, but a little better than figures I got from standalone pulse oximeter.

The sleep data did not consistently get captured. It would work for a few days and then not get captured. The BP measurements are most likely fake. Systolic measures 30 points below a BP cuff. In fact numbers are almost always the same even when I press measure when watch is not on my wrist.

The instructions that come with the product are so small a font that the only way you can read them is with a magnifying glass.

So DO NOT BUY!!!!!
