Today, we are doing hands-on review of BlitzWolf BW-HL1 Smartwatch. BlitzWolf is a Chinese brand and is known for providing latest technological products. This latest offering by the company offers you amazing value for money.
The design and display
Though affordable, it offers the look of Apple Watch. It has a rectangular design and measures 42 * 35 * 10.6 mm. The watch offers a sporty and premium look, thanks to the quality metal buckle. We love the simple design offered by the smartwatch and has no physical buttons on the side. You can easily wear it with every dress. The strap is made of high class silicone which makes the watch very comfortable to wear even for long hours.
The Android smartwatch features a crisp color screen and has an impressive interface. We find the display as wide and sharp with touch button key operations. It has a 1.3-inch IPS color display with resolution of 240 * 240 pixels. The screen conveniently activates when you raise your hand. The short touch switches the interface while long touch enters you to selected mode. You can easily adjust display brightness as per your needs. It has three watch faces which are pretty impressive.
Health-tracking & Sensors
Now let me talk about its health-oriented features since the BW-HL1 has a handful of them. Sleep tracker, step counter, calorie counter, heart rate monitor are the standard ones that you’ll find in most of the fitness trackers or smartwatches. Additionally, it also has blood pressure and a blood oxygen monitor.
Furthermore, the “Training” mode allows you to track your performance under 8 different sports, which includes walking, running, cycling, skipping, badminton, basketball, football, and swimming.
The 180 mAh battery fares well as advertised. According to the company, it can give you up to 15 days standby and 7 to 10 days of working time.
In terms of connectivity, it includes Bluetooth 4.0 or above and is compatible with Android 4.4 or above and iOS 8.0 or above. You can easily connect smartphone via Bluetooth and get all information right on your smartwatch. We are also able to reject calls or reply to messages. You get all notifications right on your home screen with little vibration. Once connected, you can take remote picture from watch, or play/pause, rewind or forward songs in your phone.
Similarly, BW-HL1 also has a “Music control” feature. You can play/pause a song along with skipping tracks forward or backward. When connected, this feature works even if the phone is locked.
Another handy feature here is the “Remote Camera“. You can take pictures simply by long-pressing the “Shutter” menu.
