Intex, the Indian smartphone manufacturer who last year forayed into the fitness trackers business, has unveiled their second generation activity trackers, the fitRist Pulzz. As the name suggests, the new fitness band sports a heart rate sensor and includes an option to schedule their fitness plan. The band is priced affordably at Rs 1799, which is on the low-end, as many brands such as FitBit, Garmin, and Jawbone has pretty pricey offerings.
The fitRist Pulzz, quite a difficult name to spell, sports a 0.66-inch curved OLED display that has a resolution of 64 x 48 pixel. It isn’t going to be the best display out there; it should do the trick and show content with decent brightness under day and night conditions. Note that this activity band is exclusively available on Flipkart only.
Talking about further features on the wristband, it has a support of Bluetooth through which you can connect your smartphone via an app. The Pulzz band is can also remind your about hydration, as well has a personal burn meter. The usual functions of the band include tracking of steps, calories burnt and distance walked by the user.

The fitRist Pulzz can monitor your sleep quality as well as can track heart rate during night. It does basically what you can expect any standard fitness tracker out there in the market right now. All this at much less cost when compared to high-end fitness trackers. Moreover, it is splash resistant as well.
You can also use the display to check on the smartphone notifications when connected to the device. Such as incoming calls, SMS, a message from various social media platforms as well. Interestingly, it also allows users to control music and act as a remote shutter for a smartphone camera. You can capture selfies using the fitness tracker on your wrist.
The Intex fitRist is available in four color options including Black, Blue, Green, and Violet. The company claims that it can offer battery life up to 7 days while offering support for Android and iOS devices.
