The watch has the features and looks of an expensive watch and is a great accessory to track your fitness needs.
Build quality & features
Starting with the build, this gadget is really strong and feels really sleek with a sensitive touch screen. The IP68 glass is glossy and the details are really crisp in the HD display.
It has got two switches to route between the screens and is equipped with a strong battery which works for 6-7 days, when tested this by wearing it all day long. The display automatically goes off after a couple of seconds. Bringing it in front of your eyes turns the display back on without lag. If you want to turn on/off displays manually, you can do so by pressing the right button. It also has a brightness adjustment feature which adjusts to varying lighting environments.
The YAMAY smartwatch is full of features that you aren’t even aware of when buying. It tracks your heart rate, the quality of your sleep time, stopwatch and timer, alarms and 14 different sport modes of operation. And it also has a ‘relax’ feature that you can use after workouts.
Having all the cool features and also being dust and waterproof is what makes this gadget a must-have for this price. Works great while swimming and the glass is very strong. It should be able to handle typical wear and tear during heavy workouts. This is the best smartwatch for first-timers to get started with and give a smartwatch a go.
Finally, the watchband with double hooks is very secure and the size of the watch itself is very comfortable to wear. The watchband itself is replaceable, which can be done by switching the clicker on each band on the smartwatch.
It gets connected to the Bluetooth devices very easily (at least with our Android device). The pedometer displays the calories burnt, steps walked distance pace and the time you covered during your workout – which is all the information you need from a fitness tracker. Furthermore, it can be easily connected to your phone to view the GPS positioning or route used when running or cycling.
It works great for the message alerts that come on to the phone on Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp, or native messaging apps that are used by most iOS and Android phones.
The screens are easy to navigate with logical swipes and clicks with the two side buttons. The fitness tracking features can be used by the VeryFitPro app that can be found in AppStore or Google Play. The app is very user-friendly and is not clunky like many applications out there. The app is self-explanatory and gives you a dashboard with current information that is updated every time you open the app. Here you will have the ability to set alarms, look at historical charts, graphs and data for all your activities, such as sleep and heart rate monitoring.
Unfortunately, the smartphone does not track blood pressure, which is understandable for this price range. It does have an alarm mode that will notify with vibration and a message on the screen. The same would naturally happen when receiving a message or a phone calls if set up in the settings menu.
One nifty feature for office workers is a reminder to move if you have been sitting for too long. Furthermore, you should be able to pair this with Spotify (we have not tried other music apps) and gives you the ability to control music and volume.
This is a top-rated smartwatch getting 4.5/5 stars on Amazon. Taking into account all the features that the YAMAY smartwatch possesses, it comes at a very low price.
This could perhaps be left unsaid, but one of the best features from a smartwatch is that you can receive texts and call alerts, which can be viewed on your watch. You no longer have to look at your phone for notifications every time your phone vibrates or pings. And you can decline calls right from the watch, which makes it easier than having to rely on your phone to do that! For example, when driving or when in a meeting.
Conclusion and gallery
Don’t get us wrong. This is not an Apple Watch or a Samsung Galaxy Watch, or other high value watch currently on the market. It is not meant to be either. After all, the price difference of almost 10x would not be justifiable for brand recognition only.
Nevertheless, this watch is full of useful features. One recently imagined scenario is for, for example, patients with heart conditions, where having this kind of smartwatch can become a necessity for their safety precisely because it can continuously monitor their heart rate. They will be amazed by the features it offers and that we have laid out above – music control, call and texts notification, notifications for apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Facebook and so on.
Most importantly, this is a smartwatch with fitness tracker capabilities. It has 14 different exercise modes, from treadmill running to cycling to yoga to dancing, you can switch to any one of these modes to track the exercises specific to your lifestyle. The YAMAY smartwatch is definitely worth the price and one of the best investments in this price category.
