Noise launched the ColorFit Pro fitness band in the Indian market with a slew of features including a pedometer, Heart Rate, Blood Pressure, SpO2 Level, and Sleep Quality recently. We got hold of this device for more than a week and came with our review.
Unlike other fitness bands, the Colorfit Pro has an Apple Watch feel to it with a big square shaped dial. On either side of the display module, it is attached with sporty black and blue (our review unit) strap made of silicone, which is comfortable to wear even though hands are sweaty. Having said that, the strap comes with enough adjustment options to fit even the smallest of wrists.
The Colorfit Pro is pretty light and the strap can be detached on both the ends. Talking about the placement, the Colorfit pro has a sensor at the back along with two pogo pins for charging just below it. To charge this device, we need to place the band on the cradle perfectly so that two pins touch the other two on the cradle. While there is no separate button, we have been provided with a circular touch-enabled space in the display module which helps us to see all the stats by tapping on it. The scrolling through the interface to see the stats is smooth.
The ColorFit Pro sports a 1.22-inch Colorful IPS LCD display with a resolution of 240 x 240. Notably, it has anti-scratch tempered Corning gorilla glass 5 as well. It comes with a bigger screen for easy readability compared to its predecessor and is also IP68 waterproof. The display is clear and bright enough to see under direct sunlight and tends to consume very little power as well. It comes with customisable watch face and offers stats for walking, running, skipping, cycling, playing badminton, football and basketball.
In default, it showcases information like time, date, day, heart rate, steps calories burned and battery status. You can also enable calls, messages and other push notifications alerts. At times, the band didn’t wake up on the first attempt when I twisted my hand, which might frustrate you, especially during running or cycling.
The Noise Colorfit Pro is compatible with both Android and iOS running Android 4.4/iOS 9.0. Pairing the device with your mobile phone is pretty much easy where you need to install “Da Fit” app from Google Play Store or App Store. Unlike other apps, Da Fit doesn’t ask you for register account instead, you need to fill your physical details, such as height, weight, gender and birth year. Once the process is over, the app gives you a series of fitness tracking options as well as the device settings.
In the fitness section, you get to see a detailed graph on your steps, burnt calories and distance. You also get similarly detailed graphs for sleep, heart rate, BP, blood oxygen and outdoor running. This device comes with a sleep tracker, where it makes use of the sensor to detect motion and analyse data for sleep. The sleep tracking is pretty good where, it shows deep sleep, light sleep and awake option. You can choose from three custom faces, however, we wish it could have been more.
Additionally, you can choose which apps can show notifications and how the tracker behaves when you lift your wrist up. Just like other wearables, you can also set alarms too, but the intensity of the vibration is below average. If you solely depend on this band for your early morning wake up’s, you might miss your schedule just as I did.
Furthermore, it also comes with a Shutter function to remotely snap photos from your smartphone, and it works well in most of the situations. For commuters like me, the music controller function is highly useful, where you can long tap on the play/pause and track change functions to control your music.
The step counting is not quite accurate as it shows more steps than what I actually took. In an attempt to double check, I consciously counted my steps and checked the band as well. Having said that, the steps count doesn’t change drastically. Apart from that, the graphical representation is neat, minimal and easy to understand. Since it is water-resistant, it tried using it under the shower and it works well.
If you are planning to own a smart band without having to shell more money, the Noise ColorFit Pro seems to be a good choice. If you can adjust and live with inaccurate step counter, this device has everything including a solid build quality and a range of features at starting price of Rs. 2,999. It comes in Blue, Black, and red colours, this smart band will available on gonoise.com, Amazon.in, Flipkart, Myntra and leading marketplaces.
