Apart from monitoring the steps, sleep, calories, pace, distance this watch can also continuously track your heart rate, but better to switch that off as it will drain a lot of battery juice. When you choose any sports (exercise) mode heart rate will be checked continuously during the session.
There is a special option in the menu that will help you prepare for Marathon, you can choose the level from beginner to expert. The training will run for several days, you need to follow the instructions (check video review).
This watch give call alerts (you get the caller name) and also notifications from almost all apps installed on your smartphone. You can disable / enable notifications for specific apps as needed.
Amazfit Battery Performance
There is 280 mAh non-removable battery that takes up to 3 hours to charge and on a full charge you will get around 5 days of battery life (continuous heart rate off / 30 minutes walk (sports mode) per day).
The best thing about this smartwatch is the always on display and the battery life that last for up to 5 days. Another unique thing is the Marathon training mode, simply awesome. This watch gives consistent results and gets more accurate with GPS. There is a lot this watch can do, and is specially made for those who want to lead a fit life / want to get fit.
An excellent buy for the price.
Rating 4.5 out of 5
Amazfit is not available in India but you can buy from GearBest.com website – it was priced at $121 before but now you can get it for just $107 (approx Rs. 7K). You can order the watch using this link and when ordering choose English version and Priority line shipping (it’s free shipping).
Most likely you will not need to pay any custom duty, but there is no guarantee. Few of my friends had ordered this and there was not custom duty, it takes 10 to 15 working days to get the watch delivered.
