At we have an unboxing today of a dt number one dt78. I know you’ve been seeing a lot of these. We closed out 2019 with the dt08 and we’re opening with a dt 78. This is their latest flagship smartwatch. A lot of people have been asking for it, and here it is so what’s it got well it’s a minimalistic aesthetic watch that’s how they describe it. Somebody got a hold of a thesaurus over there. Um it’s a basic smartwatch with removable bands and a good low price in terms of specs, which i’ll get to in a minute here’s the list from banggood. I always put these together, so i won’t forget also check the show notes for a discount price. The first one is the actual dt number one aliexpress store and banggood also has this one for us as well. When we look at the specs, we see that we’ve got um standard watch. We’Ve got the step account fitness tracker, sleep tracking message reminder by the way you can see all your messages on this one call reminder, but you can’t really talk and use it as a phone on your wrist. You got push messaging heart rate, uh blood pressure. All of those kind of things, a bunch of different languages, supported a little bit of memory. Little bit of power should get you through a few days. Life waterproof, which i guess means you can kind of get it splashed. I think they’re talking a high piece 67 or 68 on this one um 240 by 240 1.

3 inch screen, and this is kind of fun. I haven’t seen this before here’s your overall measurements. We’Ve seen that, but look at this, it tells you given the hole placement on the bands. Your minimum and maximum diameter risk that it’ll fit comfortably so measure the the circumference of your wrist and see, if it’s, between 34 and 58 millimeters and you’re good to go. Let’S unbox it it floats in here and a little uh cardboard insert with the watch sitting right in the middle of it. You can bring it out and you have the actual watch module itself and this is really attractive got some plastic covers over it. One on the back and one on the front, you want to make sure you take those off i’ll, just stick it on here for now: charging ports and, of course, where you’d attach the bands. Then, when you open up here, you have the two pin charging connector, which looks like this, and it operates simply by magnetically coupling it to the watch, good, solid connection, standard type of a usb connector and uh. You have the color of bands. You may have noticed on the box, it was a green dot, so i got the ones in green for a change. We haven’t seen these i’ll put them on in a minute and then the little bitty smartwatch manual with a lot of very small printing. So i’ll run you through this and you can freeze frame it if you like to we’re, of course, going to go through it on our own.

It uses the wear fit 2.0 app for tethering and we’ve covered that before, as well. So we’re not going to spend time on the app we’re, just quick review just going to take a look at the device itself for you here’s some of the icons and some of the things that the app will do and then this side is all in chinese. All right, well, uh, let’s, take this cover off and then we will wow isn’t that pretty, that is an attractive watch. I’Ll put the bands on and we’ll give it a run through here. It is on with a green silicone band, which is sweat, resistant large number of holes on this so that’s. Why you have that big difference in the diameters of wrists that it’ll fit quickly starts up it. Vibrated you’ve got an instant watch face on here, and it goes off again if you’ve got it activated to twist your wrist to show the time is very responsive and right there. When you swipe down, you can make this a flashlight which turns the screen bright white and you can see where you’re going really handy bail out of that you’ve got an overall brightness and we are now at the fullest brightness, and here is the lowest setting. So you got a good range and you can definitely see it outside seemed about right here for what we were doing and then you got do not disturb mode, and you can turn it on and you can um do a smart do not disturb mode which i Believe is set up then, with the app so it’ll automatically go into do not disturb when you want it to at night, for example.

So you twist your wrist and vibration will not happen. Okay, it’s going off on me really quick. If i swipe up now, i get into my app drawer, which shows me status of my step count, i just unboxed it so we don’t have any here’s the messages pushed to you from the phone, if you have it tethered for that, your overall sleep time from Last night you’re getting a light sleep deep sleep awake time, not any rem sleeping. I noticed that, but that’s really a sophisticated thing. Let’S get going on here to another page. You see the dots on the side say your pages here you have uh your medical stuff. If you call it that your basic um body measurements, which includes heart rate, uh blood, pressure and blood oxygen now, all of these are being done with green diodes. In the back and as we’ve learned in the past, green diodes is okay for getting your heart rate. When you get into things like blood pressure and especially blood oxygen, you’ll, actually do better if you’re using red diodes, so the blood pressure, readings and the blood oxygen i’d say take with a grain of salt confirm them. First, if you need that information to be accurate heart rate, these days is getting pretty standardized and pretty close to being spot on. However, as you’ve learned in another video uh, it lags with your actual heart rate. So if you’re doing any kind of interval training, you um will find that the heart rate you see on your watch is maybe up to 30 seconds behind what your actual heart rate is in case i’m, talking a lot to try to give it a chance to Measure but it’s, you really need to be still for blood pressure to work.

Um blood oxygen is here now, and i was talking about heart rate lags behind. So if you are doing something that increases your heart rate quickly and dramatically, and you don’t want to go above your top zone, you won’t find that with any of these watches that use the diodes because it’s using a thing called pulse, wave, transit time pwtt with The blood moving through your capillaries it’s complex, but the algorithm is such that you’re kind of behind on the reading, it’ll eventually catch up, but that might be too late. But if you’re just out jogging or cycling, your heart rate’s going to be averaged over time and it’s going to be fine, okay and we’re getting a 94 which is kind of low right now. I should be about some 97 to 99, not sure if that’s accurate, it looks like it stopped measuring at this point, nope it’s still going okay, 96. and again using the green diodes it’s, not quite as responsive as is or accurate, most likely as it would be. With the red diodes but it’s a 20, some odd 25 watts, so you’re kind of getting a balance there. You have your overall sports where you can do fast, walking running and cycling. You have an altitude kind of thing with mountain climbing, although there’s no altitude in the watch that i know of uh football basketball. All these things are basically just um measurements of time versus expected calories burned, here’s your sports records, if you have any, which we haven’t, because we haven’t done that.

But if you go back to things like fast walking and say, go you’re going to see you’re going to get timed calories and heart rate produced on the screen. Okay and then you can bail out of this and come back out to the very beginning. Cycling would be the same basic way: time calories burned or consumption and heart rate and we’re not getting distance, traveled or anything on it other than this basic stuff, because there’s, no gps in here and of course, tied to a pedometer. It really wouldn’t make sense because you’re not moving up and down to get distance from cycling. So again, all of these are just kind of a calorie thing. You have the ability to shake the watch to activate the camera. Is a remote camera when you’re tethered to your phone same thing, with music control, um that’s for music that’s playing on your phone. You can turn it. You know, stop and start it. You have the rage to wake which is currently on that’s what we’ve seen and it was quite responsive. You have a basic timer for a countdown timer for 1, 3, 5 10, and then you can add your own increment and uh screen time. How long? Thank goodness, i can change it i’m, going up to a maximum of 15 seconds that when you are in it like, we are right now, it’ll stay on for 15 seconds before turning off, you have a stopwatch feature simple, but nice large digits down to a hundredth Of a second, you don’t have split time capability, though, but you can pause.

It find your phone when you’re, tethered and overall settings tells you about the watch, what version it is, and you can factory reset or, of course, power down from right here and that’s it that loops us around back to the beginning again right. Okay, then we went this way. We get any new messages that have been pushed to the watch from your phone. You can read them right there. You can’t reply to them, though, and go this way and you’re automatically into uh heart rate, so you can take a quick heart rate and that’s it that cycles back and forth that way, and that way and that way and if i go up, i can’t go Any further, and this way loops through all of the pages that you have stuff on finally buttons on off button is here bottom button is on off. It looks like and probably takes us back to home wherever we are yep and then watch faces. If we press and hold, we have a slew of watch faces on this one. How do we get to them? Ah, okay up and down there’s one here’s, a digital one and it’s edge to edge screen, which they’re really talking up on this one, no notice that one has your heart rate listed on an actual watch face as well as the power. I should charge it up. It’S, pretty low um there’s another one. A few different watch faces, i’ll just show you a little spattering of them.

So you get an idea: oh that’s, a fancy, one huh! Okay, again, i have not done much with this watch. I haven’t tethered it um, so we’re. Seeing um low power off time and date, but that’s okay, it’s a quick review. We want to give you at the beginning of the year, get this one up for you, because a lot of people have been asking about the dt 78. If we run through them all again, yeah look at that. I think we have here’s the digital one. I’Ll go back to that one all right! So again, the band is a very nice tpu band. It can come with a leather uh band as well, and you got your diodes uh down here and your sensor for heart rate it’s hermetically sealed. It looks like a well built watch, um and it’s the latest one from dt number. One again. You can pick it up directly from their aliexpress store for about twenty seven dollars. If i have a coupon discount for you check for it in the show, notes and it’s, also available from our partner banggood, who works with us together on uh dt number one stuff and uh they’re gon na be in a tiered thing. So the earlier you get it the lower the price.
