Rogbid Rowatch2 Smart Notification Watch — REVIEW
This is the rogbid row watch 2, smartwatch and yeah. It looks a whole lot like an apple watch, in fact it’s very similar in design so similar that the screens within one millimeter of the 44 millimeter larger apple watch size. This is actually a 1.7 inch touchscreen and it’s interesting. The resolution is only 240 by 280, but it’s a pretty crisp looking screen. It actually works, really well. It’S ip68. Waterproof includes a fitness tracker and it’s really interesting. What sports they track. It tracks walking, running swimming cycling, basketball, football and then there’s, two odd ones badminton and skipping. Now i don’t do a lot of badminton and i don’t do a lot of skipping, but if i did, my watch could track that. How handy is that it also tracks your heart rate, and it has an oxygen monitor how accurate they are might be another story, but it actually has at least some data sleep tracker. It has a sedentary and water drinking reminder you can set. So if you’re the kind of person that just sits at your computer and or your video game system and just zones out and has hours and hours and hours pass, this can remind you to get up. Get a glass of water move around a little bit. Maybe focus your eyes on something at a different distance right. All of that can be done. You can also set alarms. So if this is for grandma or something it can remind her to take her meds or something pretty handy now, some of the other features it includes are a remote button for the camera on your paired smartphone and it has a weather display.
So it can show you the weather and it has a remote music controller so again on your paired device. If you’re listening to music, you could just go to the controller on your watch to pause or to go to the next track, or even just to see what track you’re listening to now it is a notification watch. It is not actually a watch that lets. You interact so you can’t answer phone calls. You can’t respond to text messages on this watch, but honestly, when i look at people and how they use like their apple watch or their samsung galaxy gear, or something that most of them actually use it for notifications and then go to their device anyway. So maybe that’s not such a big deal, it connects via low power bluetooth and it has a pretty solid battery life. So one of the things that’s really frustrating about the apple watch is that its battery life’s about 20 25 hours, which means every single day. You have to charge it this, they say it’s a five days of full use per charge. I found it’s a little shorter than that, but even three or four days is pretty darn nice and then, if you don’t touch it and it just sits, it can actually be on standby up to 30 days. So i will tell you that i had it sitting untouched for a week or so, and the battery was still at like 82 percent, so that was pretty impressive.
Now i know i’ve talked about it a lot, but you want to see it so here’s. What i’m going to do is i’m going to close up on the watch, but before we do that, let me show you some of the interaction you get through the app so the app. Actually, let me just get my recording started, so the app is called hero band 3, which is interesting so it’s not actually from the same company. I think it’s, just a company they work with and, as you can see it shows you the watch. It gives you access to a lot of watch, faces here’s some of the ones. These are the ones i have installed. But if i go to discover more dials check out all the watch faces you can download. So the actual watch face that i have right now. That’S sort of that santa fe new mexican style image – that is one that i downloaded and it was super easy. So really nice feature gives you lots of settings. You can see notifications, you can turn on and off notifications. If you get a lot of stuff on twitter, you can turn that off pretty handy, set, alarms access your remote shutter and give it permissions to do that. You can check for upgrades, you can also go and get your health status and you can see. I haven’t worn it very much and i haven’t moved around very much yet today so i’m, at a pretty embarrassing 264 steps i’ll break at least a thousand, hopefully by lunch, if not five or ten thousand um and then finally there’s also some profile.
You can set your height and weight and you can set your goal for a number of steps per day. All of that really handy really. The sort of home screen of it, though, is the middle one. That shows you. The watch face now great let’s switch and let’s look at the watch itself. To do that, i need to spin the camera around to point at it and we’ll see how that goes. First thing to notice is that there’s a button on the side? It’S? Not a crown it doesn’t give you a dial, it doesn’t give you that sophisticated interaction, you’d have on an apple watch, but it’s functional. I can change watch faces on the ones that are already pre loaded by just pushing and holding, and then it can step through and you can see what my options are and this one let’s see there’s. Well, i think i’ll just pick this again. I actually like this one and then i’m going to go and swipe upward, and that gives me my steps and fitness swipe up again. I can see sleep. I can see my heart rate. Obviously i do not have my heart rate right now, because it’s literally sitting on a table which is curious, but we can go back to the screen. If i go in the other direction, then i can see settings and there are some interesting ones. So i can go and i’ll push the button again to wake it up.
I can do flashlight, which just gives you a bright screen, i’m, not sure when that’s useful, but i suppose that can be beneficial. And then this button will give me weather and it will update the weather. Tell me how it’s looking outside that’s a pretty nice day, and i find that it’s easiest to push the button to move back and around so 91 percent battery bluetooth is connected. I can go to settings and there’s a lot of settings, so you can see there’s a lot of things you can do from the settings screen. I can push again. I can go in the other direction and here’s some notifications that have come in text message. Facebook, some general notifications off of my phone and, of course i can zoom in on one and i guess that’s from the espn app and, as you can see, it’s a little confusing to figure out what direction to move things in, but now i’m back to the Date and time and whatever screen that i want there’s a lot to like about this simple little watch now: let’s flip it over and see what’s on the other side, so the sensors for things like your heart rate, are in the center, but this is what’s important To look at on the back, these are the charging tabs and it comes with a very special charging cable and it works with magnets. So you just get it close and now it’s ready to charge and you plug the other end into whatever charging device you want, which is good and bad it’s good, because this lets it be waterproof but it’s bad, because if you ever lose this cable or it Gets damaged, you’re kind of out of luck, because this is not something you’re going to find off the shelf at somewhere, like best buy or even probably at amazon.
com, so that’s a design limitation worth knowing about maybe that’s the nature of these things. To have some sort of a magnetic charge, but you do want to know that now also, while we’re at the back notice that it’s a standard watch band with a quick release, so you can take the band off, you can switch it for another one it’s, a Pretty neat little watch, i mean it’s, really not a true one, to one competitor with something like the apple watch but it’s at a fraction of the price, so it might be a little less accurate with its pedometer, its health rate. You know heart rate oxygen monitor. All of those might be a little bit more questionable in terms of their true accuracy, but it gives you a chance to join the world of smart watches and try it out and get those notifications and say. Oh, look: someone just sent me an email message right. All of that can happen. You could turn on and off your haptic feedback. All of that at such a low price that if you lose this or break it, you’re not even going to care it’s, okay, because you’ll just get another one right and you’re wondering well, okay, how much is it so let’s talk about the price, but before we Get to the price give me some feedback on this video. I really appreciate it give me a thumbs up if you like. It leave a comment.
If you use a smart watch and what kind you use or whether you think that it should only be samsung and apple and everything else should be eliminated, why give me give me some justification and of course, don’t forget to subscribe? I really appreciate when people subscribe to my channel all right now this. Let me i suppose, i’ll take it off and show you and by the way, it’s sort of a typical rubber band on it, and it does have an easy release. So you can change. Watch bands, if you want that’s a pretty easy thing to do with modern, smart watches, and i changed the face even so super easy to do that. This is the rogbid row watch 2 smartwatch and it’s 36.99 at amazon.com 36.99. That is so cheap that there are watch bands for the apple watch that cost more than this, and this comes with the actual watch. So definitely one worth checking out. This could be really great for a tween or teenager that just wants those notifications, but doesn’t really need to wear a multi hundred dollar device on their wrist and it might be fun for you to have if you’re like, going to a tough mudder or you’re in An environment where things are really banged up a lot because having this go south is a whole lot less sad than having your brand new apple watch at 400 going bad.
