The Umidigi Uwatch3 GPS Smart Watch with Built-in GPS is delightful, lightweight, comfortable, easy to wear and meets all of your fitness and health tracking needs.
The striking, attractive rubber wristband with the red stripe makes the watch so much easier to see - and more importantly - to easily find. The rubber itself is very comfortable, durable and so lightweight that you almost forget that the watch is even on your wrist.
The watch face is bright, very clear and easy to see even in outdoor light.
On the reverse is the heart rate and pulse sensor as well as a really well designed magnetic charge connection point.
The USB charge cable easily snaps on and off. That's a really nice feature because there is no fiddling around with micro usb sockets. There's no breakable ends. It just pops on and off so quickly and easily.
The watch face features a very clear charge indicator so as soon as it it's about 99% or 100% you can just easily disconnect and away you go.
Navigation around the watch face is super simple. It's just a matter of flicking with your finger from left to right and up and down to access the various parts of the menu that interest you.
In the sports section you can monitor outdoor and indoor runs, outdoor walks, outdoor and indoor cycling, cricket, indoor and open water swimming as well. These activities can be tracked by the GPS with the data uploaded to the Very Fit Pro App that you can download to your Apple or Android device.
The watch face also allows you to access the heart rate sensor, the relaxation sensor, alarm, music controller, timer, weather, sports record and settings. There really is something for everyone.
Of course many of the above functions can be synchronised with your Android device via the Very Fit Pro app.
The app also allows you to customise the look of the front screen of the watch and you can choose from a number of different designs according to your preferences.
One of the most impressive features of the watch is the battery life.
I ran this watch for about 10 days without any charge just to see how long the battery would last.
On day 10 the battery still had about 45% left.
The watch instruction manual says it has about a 5 to 7 Day battery life - but obviously that would be with maximum intensity use. In reality, I found that with just normal, day-to-day use - you can get at least 10 days with 45% still in the tank.
In such situations the battery would probably last for up to 14 to 20 days - which is quite impressive.
So if you forget your charge cable and you're away from home for a week or two - just relax - it's not a problem.
A nice feature of the watch is the Very Fit Pro app that you allows you to monitor all of your activities.
You can monitor your sleep and set up call alerts, a sedentary alert alarm alert and SMS alert. There's also settings for music controls and heart rate detection.
It's quite comprehensive.
It also presents graphs to monitor your activities from day to day and your sleep patterns.
There's average statistics for each day across a range of activities. So all in all these are very nice features to sync with the watch, and use from day to day to monitor your fitness and health levels.
The Umidigi UWatch 3 GPS is a very well priced solution for anyone who wants to monitor their health and activity levels and get a clear picture of their overall performance.
It's comfortable, lightweight and looks like many of the much more expensive smart watches on the market.
For the price and performance you'll be quite satisfied with what Umidigi has delivered in this delightful, day-to-day, high tech health and fitness companion.
