Smartwatch trends have changed a lot over the years, and we now expect some features on affordable smartwatches such as heart rate and SpO2 tracking, high-resolution color screens, and the ability to receive notifications from various apps. A big new trend for smartwatches is Bluetooth calling functionality – the benefit of being able to take calls on your wrist is attractive to buyers, as it has generally been limited to premium smartwatches in the past.

It is noisy to enter the Bluetooth calling game with its latest launch with the ColorFit Pro 4. Its price is Rs. 3,499, this smartwatch promises a lot at a very competitive price, including the ability to make and receive calls on your wrist, prominent fitness and health tracking sensors, and up to seven days of battery life.

Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Design and Specifications

The rectangular dial style popularized by the Apple Watch series is often seen on affordable smartwatches, and the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 has that aesthetic. The smartwatch features a 1.72-inch TFT LCD touch screen with a resolution of 356×400 pixels and a maximum brightness of 500 nits. The screen is sharp and spacious, making the text and data on the screen easy to read.

The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 is available in six color options, so there are plenty of options when it comes to how eye-catching or distinctive you want the smartwatch to look. My review unit had a silver-grey body and gray 22mm replaceable silicone straps, which I thought was pretty attractive to look at for the price. There are pretty thick borders around the screen, but if you use a watch face with a black background, you’ll hardly be able to see them in everyday use.

There’s a microphone on the right side of the Noise ColorFit Pro 4, while there’s a small speaker grille on the left, both of which are used for Bluetooth calling functionality. There’s a single button on the right, which also rotates to scroll for navigation. At the bottom of the smartwatch are contact points for an optical sensor and magnetic charger to detect heart rate and blood oxygen level. The ColorFit Pro 4 is IP68 rated for dust and water resistance.

Included in the sale package is the charging cable for the Noise ColorFit Pro 4, and some user manuals and documents. The smartwatch weighs in at 24.1g, and uses Bluetooth 5.3 for connectivity. There’s also an accelerometer that enables lift-to-wake gestures to wake up the screen.

Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Software and App

Like most affordable smartwatches, the Noise ColorFit Pro 4’s software is basic, and built around the hardware features of the device itself. Additionally, the device acts as a notifier, displaying notifications and providing a brief preview of text-based alerts from your smartphone. There’s also Bluetooth calling functionality, which sets up the ColorFit Pro 4 as a Bluetooth microphone and speaker system when paired with your smartphone.

The Bluetooth calling functionality is registered on your smartphone as a second Bluetooth device. When paired with this other device, the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 can be used to make and receive calls from your smartphone just like you would any Bluetooth audio device. To stop using it, simply disconnect the Bluetooth device from your smartphone as needed. This does not affect the connection for synchronization and notifications, as it is paired as a separate device and is active in low-energy mode all the time.

Interestingly, the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 has functional, dynamic watch faces that can be interacted with to open relevant apps and view detailed statistics. While this feature is common on high-end smartwatches, these types of affordable devices usually don’t have this type of watch face, so it’s a useful touch. Unfortunately, there isn’t an always-on mode for the screen. Activating the screen requires a lift-to-wake gesture or button press; Tapping the screen does nothing when the watch is on standby.

While the visible widgets and apps depend on the watch face in use, it is usually possible to view key functions on the Noise ColorFit Pro 4’s home screen. My favorite watch face displays steps, heart rate and battery on the device. With buttons to access level, workout and activity screens, heart rate details, music remote and phone dialer.

You can also download and use many other watch faces through the smartphone app, but most of these are static and don’t have the benefits of a dynamic watch face. The Noise ColorFit Pro 4’s user interface is clean, looks great on sharp screens, and puts most features and functions within easy reach via a tap or swipe.

The list of apps on the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 can be accessed by pressing a physical button once to open the app drawer. Apps on the device include Noise Health, Noise Buzz (the Bluetooth calling app), Clock (includes tools like stopwatch, timer, and alarm), Weather, Stock, Flashlight, and Watch Face. It’s not possible to install any other apps on a smartwatch, but you can load watch faces onto the device using the NoiseFit app on your smartphone.

The NoiseFit app is available for iOS and Android, and acts as a connection controller between the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 and your smartphone. Fitness and health data can be viewed in detail on the app once synchronized, settings for the device such as notification alerts, auto heart rate monitoring, weather settings, and more can be modified, and firmware updated can go.

You can also download and sync new watch faces from the gallery, or create custom watch faces for devices from the app. The app is well-crafted, and maintains a stable connection with the Shore ColorFit Pro 4, pushing notifications and reliably synchronizing data while reviewing the smartwatch.

Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Performance and Battery Life

Like other affordable smartwatches, the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 works best as an accessory and notifier for your smartphone. What you get with the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 is a bigger, sharper screen, the ability to change watch faces to suit your mood, and the fact that you can rely on it to receive alerts from apps without even taking off your smartphone. can.

Of course, there’s also Bluetooth calling functionality, which worked well for me in certain situations. The speaker and microphone are basic, so don’t expect to be able to hold long conversations with the Noise ColorFit Pro 4; It also won’t be very comfortable, as you’ll have to hold the watch close to your face so that both can be heard and heard properly. However, it works fine for short, quick conversations, especially when you’re out and about, or even in the middle of a workout and your smartphone isn’t readily available.

The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 has heart rate and SpO2 tracking, but they’re not very accurate

The fitness and health tracking on the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 wasn’t very accurate, for the large part. Step tracking was grossly inaccurate in our 1000-step test, with the ColorFit Pro 4 measuring 1,075 steps when I manually counted to 1,000. Over longer distances compared to the Apple Watch Series 5, the difference widened to about 85 additional steps per 1,000.

Distance measurements were roughly the same as those of the Apple Watch, but calorie measurements differed significantly for the same workout with both devices worn together. A variety of workouts can be done with some unique workout options like kabaddi and kite flying, but I stuck to tracking walking workouts with the Noise ColorFit Pro 4.

Heart rate and blood oxygen tracking were accurate when seated compared to the pulse oximeter, but all over the place when walking, compared to the Apple Watch. Sleep tracking was good enough for basics. Overall, I would not recommend Noise ColorFit Pro 4 for fitness and health trackers.

The battery life of the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 was pretty decent as compared to other smartwatches of its kind and in this price range. The smartwatch lasted about six days on a single charge, which included tons of notifications from my smartphone throughout the day, occasional workout tracking, and maybe a few minutes of using the Bluetooth calling functionality every day.

Decision

As far as affordable smartwatches go, the Noise ColorFit Pro stands out for a few key reasons. For one, it offers a decent set of features, including a sharp color screen, dynamic watch face, and Bluetooth calling. The second key point is that all of this is offered at a price that is significantly lower than the similarly specified competition; 3,499, you are getting an enabling experience that is equally good if not better than the competition in this segment.

If you’re on a tight budget and want a good-looking, feature-packed smartwatch, the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 is worth a look. Keep in mind that fitness tracking isn’t its strong point; Buy it for the screen, Bluetooth calling functionality, and design, above all.
