Lenovo Watch X Plus
The Lenovo Watch X Plus is quite appealing in terms of looks. It looks like your regular wristwatch with its classic design. You can easily mistake it for a regular watch because it really looks like one. A Medical steel casing with Sapphire Crystal glass is what you get on this watch with a dial on the side.
With Roman Numbering on the dial inside, it is your traditional wear except that you get a small rectangular display on the inside. And that’s the only thing that will clear your doubt that it is not an ordinary watch. You can navigate the features with the crown on the side, that acts as a button. The watch measures 42.5 mm and is about 12 mm thick. This watch is also waterproof up to 50 meters, which is a good feature to have in a budget smartwatch.
This is an aspect where most smartwatches tend to struggle. The likes of Samsung Galaxy Watch can only last for some 2-3 days, while the Huawei Watch GT has managed up to 15 days of battery life but that doesn’t pack as many features. This one can give you an impressive battery life of like 40 days. That, in part, is due to its large 600 mAh batteryand the other part is because this watch doesn’t do all that much.
The watch does take some 2.5 hours to charge, but once you charge it, it lasts over a month. So, there is nothing to complain about. But you don’t have that traditional micro USB charger here. You get a magnetic connection on the charger, so, be careful not to lose it.
As aforementioned, the Lenovo Watch X Plus doesn’t do much. It has 6 sensors – barometer, pedometer, heart rate monitor, a blood pressure sensor, a geomagnetic sensor, and a gravity sensor. These sensors help in good fitness tracking for day to day activities.
For fitness tracking, the watch measures your sleep, walking, running, climbing, swimming, heart rate and blood pressure. But not all of them is that easy to use. Walking is tracked by default, and it also shows you the number of steps and calories burnt. But it does not save the record in the app for walking. However, it does for others and all of the data can be viewed on the Lenovo Watch app on your phone. It is also pretty easy to trick this smartwatch into thinking that you’re swimming. Just start the Swim activity on your watch, and move your hands around. And it will calculate your heart rate, the duration of the exercise and the number of strokes. So, some of it may not be very accurate.
