Silicone batter of batteries, silicone band I'd love to have a silicone battery, actually aluminum alloy case and so forth. Let'S get into it. I love it. The presentation is phenomenal, but we've already unboxed it in another video. So if you want to see the unboxing check that one out let's go ahead and take a look at this one after this whoa what about the manual well here, it is it's a little book lots of different languages and English is the first one.
You get. The about the watch how it operates, what the things are: you've got a QR code, which is what you're going to need to download the Amaze fit app that's. What it's going to tether to on your Android phone information about charging the watch and again make sure you get those pins lined up this assembly and a of the watchstrap it's? Definitely removable with quick release buttons on the side. Regulatory notice that we get from a maze fit and all these other kind of regulation, Airy, stuff and that's, pretty much all that's here, recycling information and they figure that the rest of it you'll be able to figure out once you turn the thing on and tether. It to the app remember with a maze fit you do need to tether to the app before you can even use the device, and in order to do that now we go to another language. You'Re gon na need to create an account so be prepared beyond the internet on your phone download the app either through the show, note link or through the QR code that we showed you here on the screen. When you get it downloaded, then you're you're able to set up your own account and proceed from there. Okay, so let's turn the silly thing on here we go press the button and hold says amaze fit as it's booting up. I want you to take a look. You can see the screen from all kinds of angles: it's a nice thin little watch there.
It is it's already up right, then dim and it'll turn itself off. The TPU band is very, very smooth and easy, fully flexible, fully removable. Really nice watch let's dig into this here's the opening screen. I press the button turn it off press to turn it on I'll. Show you the long press in a moment, we're gon na slide down you get into a page that says it's the current date. A flashlight that brightens the screen – oh nice, do not disturb mode. Your auto brightness is right here, and you can of course adjust it as you would like there. We go turned it off and now we're back up to a little bit brighter easier to see. Okay, that's too washed out we'll change it, and then this lock. I really like this. Now the screen is completely locked: you're not going to accidentally bump something and go somewhere. So if you want to be in a timed event, you can lock the screen out press the button immediately unlock, and that is the top section by the way, once you're up here, you can't slide any further other than down. If I go to the left, I go into heart rate, step count and back to time, and likewise here, so you have three screens that you rotate through horizontally and if you slide up now, you get into all the fun here. Are all the different apps you've got basically a workout, and when you get in here, he says, come on workout there we go.
You have the choice of all these different things. An outdoor run, walking cycling, treadmill indoor, which out would does not use GPS, open water, swimming pool, swimming elliptical trainer, climbing you've, got trail running on this one skiing, even and then overall freestyle, and any of these that you go into if it needs GPS. It'Ll grab. Gps, for example, outdoor cycling, it's attempting to get the GPS signal when it locks in you get a Go button boom and you can start your workout now, we're back to the beginning status. Tells you your pedometer stuff over the last few days and whatnot in ours. With summaries and I'm really reviewing this thing kind of fresh right now for the day and it starts over at zero, so there's, nothing there. Neither is there in my PI personal activity, information or something like that. They point the special word and you can earn PI over a week and then you've got goals to try to increase, increase that and in essence, it's a way to try to help get you back on target to doing the proper exercise without forcing it down your Throat you get the option of doing it over spread out over time. Here'S your basic heart rate. They want you to wear it on your wrist it's using green diodes to do it with sensors on the side say. Checkmark and it'll do a continuous heart rate chart for you right here on the screen, and I think that was all we've got.
There wait a minute come back here. No okay, it'll calculate your resting heart rate, relaxed and your daily level of activity so light intense aerobic, anaerobic all this based on your personal and for none information that you put in, I believe in the app that will set it so that you have those category Windows specific for your age, gender and weight, those kind of things now we've got activities, and these are the different things that you've done and I've done a few of them wearing this band, and this is really fun: here's, a cycling, there's, the actual track of the Cycling, its duration, distance average speed maximum speed. You should see mister ticks when he's pedaling at 52 miles an hour as a passenger in a car, oh that's, why? My heart beats no, no more than 76 hey I'm doing the best I can. This is where it's really wild. It looks like. I was on a rocket ship I'm, not sure what's going on here, but it said I climbed 38000 yards that's really impressive. I not sure if that date is incorrect or just where it's coming from. But it does say your total ascending and total be sending. Was this, and this might be total up and down added together, but still it's way, different, so kind of questioning that one and then again, when you're working out it's going to give you your actual heart zones and percentage or actual minutes that you spent in each Of those with a circle that's showing your uphill downhill, gradient, flat, ground and so forth, was there more there let's see.
I love it. So I want you to see all of this stuff. Yeah heart rate, okay, there's, the actual heart rate chart over the time and here's the speed chart over that time and the same things gon na be with walking and running, except it'll, be paced, probably instead of speed and then here's your altitude gain and loss information. As well and you can throw the thing away or you can keep it and sync it over to your your phone of course, here's a walking path lay. It was only 12 minutes long. This is more realistic, as I actually did walk this a heart rate and so forth. It keeps pushing me out of here, maybe I'm sliding slightly there's. The heart rate information is on here. It was all light. Oh come on. Don'T. Do this to me you're on video yeah, heart rate, okay and that's. It then there's the heart rate, because there isn't any altitude change or any of that other stuff going on with that one and another bike run and so forth. So all of that's activities and then you've got weather and it's for your specific area, and I have it set to British English Fahrenheit reading. So we've got that you've got your forecast information, the current wind and so forth after weather, you've got music for our music control player when you're connected to your phone, which we will be here shortly, notifications pushed alarms, event reminders and more in the more look at This we've got an onboard compass that if you go in that figure eight thing it should calibrate and Whittle vibrate for you and it'll show you I'm sitting in the north and it's.
Of course pointing that way is south. We have a basic timer that's, really pretty check this thing out there you go it's like a regular stopwatch with digital and there's your straight on digital, so you get to play with either mode, and you got a countdown timer where you can choose the minutes that You want it to countdown up to one hour, then you find your mobile, which is just basically find your phone once you're tethered you've got that there too and then finally in settings now settings is fun watch face. We have a few different ones to choose from that's one that I downloaded from the server through the app. These two are stock faces that come with it, and this is one that you can put in here. That gives you the weather and – and you can actually change all of these characteristics by holding and going into here. If you don't want to see your all day heart rate here, you can change that to a weather forecast, for example. So there you go, you have your weather and your forecast, or, as you saw you could have notifications. All of those are available. We'Ll show you some of the other watch faces here's. The analog version that you can have your schedule down here and again change these different things, just by touching and holding and going into the settings, and then this is the one I've got on here for today, just because I really like large digits white time against The black background makes it really easy to see outdoors well cover more of these when we get to the app.
So we have gone through everything here and I think we've covered everything here that loops around and we've played with the flashlight and the lock the screen. And now we can talk about the button which is programmable from the app and when you long press, whichever one you decide you want. Well, I guess you got to be back on time, press and hold it'll switch to it and I chose heartrate. It could be compass, you'll, see a few, a few different things, so the long press will do that and to turn it off. It was a real pain, but a good thing that you study it and learn. What I had to do was go into the settings into the system where you have about reboot and there is shutdown or you could do a factory reset, so hitting shutdown turned it off so that I could turn it back on and show you it booting up. Now, let's take a look at the app now. This is the amazed fit app I've already downloaded it. I already set up an account for it and I've gone through the process of tethering it, and it is selected for this watch and one thing about amaze fit. If this is your, only amazed fit watch you're fine, but if you have more than one, you really can only have one active at a time. I forgot to show you the system stuff. Let me take you down into all of this down to the bottom again into the settings, because there's some really cool things.
First of all watch face. We talked about that. I can come in here and select from here, or you can long press to bring up whichever watch that you want. However, if you go to the next thing screen auto off, this is how long it will remain on before it turns off. You can set it as low as five seconds or as much as fifteen and it'll tell you that the longer you have it the lower your battery will go faster, but yeah it's, a trade off, and for me I like to leave it as a long time, Especially doing reviews, you have the press and hold, and this is what I was saying you press and hold here. I said it for heart rate, but you can set it to give you your status or any of these other activities with one press and I'm. Not sure why it keeps jumping back on me, I guess if I tiny movement of my finger left or right it'll do that count up countdown timers music players find your mobile or just disable the button. So long press does nothing. You cannot set it to be an off button, though, that press and hold turns it off, and unfortunately this is just my little pet peeve I'd love to see a way to go into settings or to at least turn the watch off from up here. You know if you really want to turn it off, but I presume they're expecting you never to have to turn it off, which is cool, just something different got to get used to beyond this one, then, is this the always on display right now, it's turned off, But I can say digital dial and when the standby mode is opened, the screen will always display the dial which will seriously reduce the battery life.
They claim we're gon na do that and I'm gon na come back here and change my off time to five seconds. Basically, there we go there's the actual watch face there. I turned it off and instead of it, going off it's here now, if I turned it on and allow it to just time out. Naturally, it goes to a dimmer thing, really quick and boom. Now, it's on that dim display well it's, not a transflective or a reflective screen like I thought it would be. You can see it barely a little better without it, because there is a little bit of backlight there yeah, okay! Well, you have the digital time on there, but it's very soft to try to give you as much battery life as possible and of course it comes back and then, when it times out, it'll go to whatever setting you set, which in this case we set it For digital, so let's see what the other one is settings always on display pointed pointer, dial, and here it is on and we let it timeout dimming and there you go it's an analog display Wow there there's full brightness when you just cycle it on and off Your hands and date with the day of the week and your step count in really really tiny digits there, but normally it's going to be in this dimmed mode when it's in that condition and that's pretty much. What I wanted to show you in the rest of the settings, the always on display and then in the system itself.
Again, you can go into about which tells you your firmware version that's. What you're going to look for in case there's any updates to the watch about regulations, reboot and you can do a factory reset? You can see that the app is now downloading to the watch. The latest GPS coordinates for the satellites which will help the watch to acquire GPS quicker and I've got to tell you when you wear this thing and go out to do an activity and you're under clear skies. It'S gon na work really. Well. You see here that when I press and hold well y'all come here, press and hold I've got the basic watch faces. Oh and it kept the one that I downloaded that's nice. Now that it's done here, I'm gon na go into watch face settings, because this is what I wanted to show you, and I could only do it if the watch is connected there. Alright, look at this library of watch faces there's all kinds in here. This is the one I'm using right now, but you have analog faces. Digital faces, a great library is a nice bright one if you like, analog and more as they continue to load. These are all little thumbnails and, of course, they'll appear big on the watch. You'Ve got some caricatures on here as well. You got some nighttime red ones, all the way down to the bottom, so let's go back up here to that relatively bright analog one – and you get to this point – shows you the size and say sync with the watch.
I'Ve been curious about this myself on whether or not when you put the watch face in if it can add to the ones you've already downloaded or whether it wipes that out – and you can only put one face in so we'll – see what this one does. Okay, it says synced successfully here and here and now we've got that watch face and when it lights up hello, we have a conflict between the twist and turn and the pressing of the button. You see the watch face there. If I press and hold it now there, it is aha and there are the other two. So in the memory of this watch, there's just enough to hold one watch face, you have a choice of all these faces, one at a time. In other words, you can't load your five favorite ones in here and switch between them while you're out jogging. You can't have the bright white one at night, so you can see and use it as a little flashlight and then switch to a darker one. When you go to the movie theater, you have to have your phone and you have to download it over here when you go to the Settings where it says, watch faces it's not connecting you to the internet to download them like on an Android watch. Would you literally have to tether to the Amaze fit app come into the watch face a section in order to get that now I'm, not going to go into a lot of the details of all of the elements in the Amaze fit app we've covered that in Many other reviews, but there are a couple of things I'd like to point out here too, for you right down here is the heart rate detection.
This is something interesting. They have a detection method that you can set up, that automatic heart rate detection in sleep assistant, but each of these is going to have a hit on your battery. But if that doesn't bother you or you can charge it more frequently and still it's a long battery life, even with this stuff turned on you'll get more data from your watch. If you activate these kind of things, you can turn it off. It'Ll. Send that signal to the watch, if you want to you, have all these other aspects of it and the other thing. Finally, is the watch display settings? These are all the different things when you scroll through. Remember we scroll up and you see all kinds of stuff. Well, it's really cool because you can put what's important to you at the very top, so scroll up hit workouts or pie heart rate, whatever you like, including settings. So you can hide some of these items that you don't need. You can reorder them the way you want to and you can hit safe and that's pretty much it so that's it it's a pretty nice Apple.
