After making its mark in the smartphone industry in India, the Intex Technologies, a widely popular offline brand in the country has launched their first fitness tracker today. The FitRist is company’s first fitness smart band offering that promises a lot of functionality at a pricing of Rs 999. The wearable market in India sees a lot of growth, but it is still at its initial stage, with interests being taken by Indian brands, the time wouldn’t be far when just like smartphones, every Indian would have access to the fitness trackers. The country where health problems are at its peak needs a solution in terms of motivation, which is one of the purpose of strapping a fitness band on the wrist.
The FitRist tracker comes with a 0.86-inch OLED display that would be showing the fitness data such as steps taken, calories burned, etc. It makes the cheapest fitness tracker with OLED display. Apart from tracking your daily activities, it would also monitor sleep. Meanwhile, the wearable would offer notifications for incoming calls as well as control music from the wrist. There is one other interesting feature available in this smart band; it allows capturing the photo from the camera of the connected phone.
This fitness tracker from India’s number 1 offline brand would be available for sell exclusively on the Snapdeal, which an e-Commerce store. It’s quite ironical. We only hope that company would further increase the availability to its offline users. The device can be paired with your smartphone via Bluetooth connection. It can only be connected to devices running on the Android 4.3 or above and iOS7 and above version. Currently, there are many affordable options to Indian consumers when it comes to the fitness tracker when compared to around two years back.
Sporting 3-axis accelerometer sensor to measure the distance travelled and accurately monitor sleep, the FitRist wearable band from Intex is claimed to be water resistant and splash proof so that you can take it away with you in rains and don’t worry about accidental spills on it. The fitness band would be coming in two color variants Dark Blue and White.
The company claims that its battery can last up to 12 days, which is amazing for a wearable device with a display. Since, it is an OLED screen, not a color display; it can be expected to give battery life as expected. But we can’t comment on that until we get our hands on with this wearable. Other options that you could opt in this same range is Yu Fit and Xiaomi’s Mi Band.
