Wow, look at that: okay, long press to boot, that's that one and it uses the glory fit app first thing that they tell you right on the screen, but before we go any further i'd like you to know where you can get it, we got a couple Of choices for you, this is a z blaze, product coming right from the z, blaze official store at aliexpress yep, so check.

So banggood's got it there right now. They got it at a really good flash price i'm, not sure. If aliexpress one will match it or beat it anyway, you can check back and forth either one as long as you use the link in the show notes. It helps us out here at this channel. So what are we looking at in this watch? It is a bluetooth, smart watch with three atmosphere.

The sensors, the battery is 170 milliamp hour about an hour and a half to charge 15 day power saving scenario. One week, typical usage, water resistant, baby, yeah glory fits the app we'll check that out, and here are the languages that are supported on it as well. Okay, nothing, oh yeah, there's, nothing else in the box, but of course we have to have a charger and it's the standard. Two pin usb style that connects on the back and it's worthy it's, strong enough to hold the watch and not have it fall off. I don't know how many times we've seen that happen: let's take that little plastic cover off and reveal the watch there's a cover on the back over the heart rate diodes too. Now we are ready last thing to take a look at the manual in english page.
Seven uh so that we can yep yep yep, make sure you've got a copy of this. Usually these manuals are not available, uh online or pdf whatever. So you can always come back here and toward the beginning of our review. Videos you'll be able to check it out, there's the qr code, but again i got the link directly to gloryfit in the google play store that you can download. If you want to use that link, definitely download it from the google play store. If you scan the qr codes, sometimes you're getting it from china, i highly recommend you skip that and go to the google play, store and download it here's, some of the screens that you're going to see as we walk through the watch and a few more highlighted. We won't spend time, but you can come back and read about any of them here that are of interest to you, wow and that's it just a few pages. The overall specs, i guess, are right there and it's time to do what uncle ticks does charge it up and turn it on. Okay, i'll be right back: oh my goodness, let's fire, this one up top button press long wait and it vibrates with the time in a really bright screen that is on the lowest absolute setting edge to edge view. Look how thin wow three diodes for doing the heart rate, stuff and it's calculating on this particular watch, face your heart rate on a chart and it'll get you your actual heart rate up there, so i better strap it on.
This is one of a few watch faces that this one has, but this watch face in particular, is just i mean it's sweet because it's doing continuous heart rate monitoring for you, okay, in a moment, the heart rate will pop up there. I got some step count. Hundred percent charge and uh it's a black and white screen, but we've got some others. I'Ll show you those in a minute for right now, i'm going to slide down. I'Ve got a do not disturb mode. Here i got a uh. What is this one brightness? This is your overall brightness see how low it is. Let'S brighten it up a little bit bright, bright, bright, total brightness. Look at that! Look at that. There we go. I got 79 is my current heart rate, fully waterproof gang 3 atm on this one. You can dive and swim and do all kinds of things with it. I need it a little lower to show you, so it doesn't wash everything out on the screen. In addition, i got the ability to find my phone with that. One and it'll ring it loud and then overall settings which is going to take you into your selection of watch, faces your brightness, which we just looked at and info about it. Turning it off resetting in the qr code that you can use to download the glory fit app, which we'll take a look at in a second and that's all from swiping down going up hello going up, we get to your notifications.
If you have any push, they'll be readable right on here and uh going right, we'll get into a variety of different uh pages. We'Ve got step count information by the way. Does it go up from there nope just that here? We'Ve got heart rate, but this is a graphic. I don't believe this is accurate. The accurate one was back on the actual watch face because i haven't had a peak in heart rate today and i don't know. I don't know have to check it out, but it is showing you the current dynamic heart rate happening. I swipe again i get into last night's sleep time and i can't show you more than that, but i do get the breakdown between light and deep sleep, along with the total, much more detail in the app here's, the weather in my area, uh and it's in Fahrenheit, it can be set either fahrenheit or centigrade with forecasts for the next three days in color, beautiful, beautiful nice screen and a music player that, when you're tethered, you can tap the button and play whatever music. You got queued up on your um on your phone. So that's all going that way coming this way to the left. These are all my applications: it's, not a fancy apple like looking layout, it's, linear and i don't see a way to change that, but it's functional i got outdoor running and cycling. I do have swimming on this one, i hope so with three atm badminton few other things quite a few other things even jumping jacks there, and when you get into something here, the typical one we look at is uh like outdoor running.
It gives you a countdown three, two one there's, no gps in it, so it's going to be calculating its distance. Based on your pedometer. You get your heart rate, um steps and so forth. A few things there a couple of things: okay and then you can come out of here, stop it say: okay and you're out so that's um, a bit of exercise capability that you've got status. Is your step count. Stuff, heart is your heart rate, here's blood pressure and again this is a simulated chart. That'S, not real i'm, pretty sure that's true, but it is going to you know, take a little while and it'll give you systolic over diastolic blood pressure, no blood oxygen on this one that i can find, but those two are there there's last night's sleep time, the Weather the music player – we all saw that already. The message is when you swipe up so everything here is already there, so you don't need much there, but in more you can come in and start a dynamic stopwatch. That will that will play, and you can pause it of course or start it again when you leave it and you come back into it instead of it resetting it just paused it, but it doesn't keep running in the background, which is unfortunate. I like it when they do that, so you could accumulate time if you want to, but it is there and it will uh pause it when you leave it.
Your countdown timer that's, one timer you can set it and it's default is to an hour a minute. In a second, then you've got the overall flashlight, which would be nice if that was a key up in that upper one or right from the main page, because uh when you need a flashlight trying to put your key in a door or something you don't want To go through a lot of pages to try to get to it. This is buried under more, which is buried under getting over yeah yeah it's a little difficult to find and then find your phone again, which we already saw as well. So just a couple of different things that are on this little section under more that are new from what you had before and then finally, settings which we looked at from when we pushed it up above nothing's changed there, except. I want to show you the watch faces, so this is the one we were looking at. I can come over here and get you a nice colorful one, a little burst of color against the black and white it's kind of made to look like a pebble watch, which is pretty cool when you have that black and white screen. But it really is handy. I think to have the actual continuous chart of your heart rate from midnight forward it's what almost three in the afternoon and that's my current heart rate right on the watch face really like that watch face.
I could do it this way as well to get into them there's a analog. One simple one also shows your heart rate and your battery level, which are two nice things to know. If you like, the simple analog style, and then you have one downloadable custom face that you can put in here – and this is one i chose and in the app in a minute, i'll show you selections of more of them and this one i like it kind Of coordinates with that green overall band on this um yeah, so i twist to see the time works pretty well, all in all. Really nice let's take a look at the the app now, as i mentioned, it's called glory, fit we've reviewed this one before so, we'll run through it pretty quickly. Uh here's your step count, information tap it and you get the bar charts of when you accumulated those steps per hour and the breakdown down here on walking, running uh and so forth. What what it since that you were doing when you accumulated that for the day the week the month you can send it out, you can change the calendar to a specific date stock standard stuff. This is cool. This is your heart rate recording and look at this it's spread out over a nice wide range like what this is: um, 345, 720, 1055., 14, 30 or 2 30 in the afternoon, and uh we're at hey, that's, better 2, 45, so um yeah you're, getting a Good look at a regular, continuous heart rate, oh cool, and you can touch it at any point and see what your heart rate was at that exact time, but it doesn't look like we go into it.
Oh yeah, we do there, we go. You have to hit up in the upper part it's also going to show you your zones. I love this one tranquilization zone, mrs ticks likes it. When mr ticks is tranquilized. Let me tell you he talks way too much and way too loud, um here's, my low. My average and all that and i'm just living tranquilization so far today, anyway, you have all the way up to extremity state, not even going to talk about what that might be. But these are the new definitions of the zones that you're typically familiar with just go by the color coding. I think again, you can change the dates and export this. The next thing is our sleep record, and here we've got a little graph. What doesn't tell you much, but when you get into it, you've got your sleep time, awake time, actual and different color coded bands for when you're in deep light or awake state a no rim, sleep testing on this one but basic stuff. A week month you can send it out: do all that kind of stuff that's pretty much it for there. Then you got blood pressure. These are incremental records. You have to take it manually on the watch and it'll store it and then transfer it over here. Tells you the time your high and low pressure, systolic diastolic again take this all with a grain of salt, because they're really not sure about the accuracy on these kind of watches, with blood pressure using diodes, you can remotely do one by hitting the start button there And that'll trigger it – and i was wondering back here on this one: when we go into it yeah we don't have a start button to remotely do the heart rate individual heart rate.
This is the chart for continuous heart rate, sleep, blood pressure and that's it. This allows you to just change the orders of those three cards or whatever. Okay, we got the temperature in your area, changeable degrees, centigrade or fahrenheit. The band connection down here you got sport where you can actually initiate a sport on your own. Now i played with this and i went whoa it's, my cousin. Are you ready now, listen to me and then listen to him? Greetings three, two one! Yes we're! Here you see some similarities. There, workout paused, yeah workout, past okay, finished finished. Oh, i could learn a lot by just mimicking that guy anyway that's in here and you could do a sports thing and i hope you can shut him off. Unlike me, um here's, your device information and i'm going to get to dial settings after you see all of these different typical things that you can do, including universal settings such as this and here's. Where i get my units switching, i can have a maximum of 15 seconds down to a low of uh like three seconds or five seconds. I guess for um how long the watch will be on the longer it's on the faster the battery drains 12 24 hour. You know all that kind of stuff and languages can follow your phone or you can set it manually if you want to check for firmware, updates and so forth, and now the dials here you go.
This is a look at all the different dials that are available. That can be transferred over here. I did a few myself different colors of this one. I did an analog one, but you get to put in one extra dial with along with all of the other ones that are there and you just choose which one you like from here. I don't see a way you can put your own picture on a dial. Some of them have that, but not all of them do you notice it's still kind of loading it in. So you have to be patient a little bit download from the server into the phone once you download them and actually install them. They go into my dial and oh here. It is custom tile. It goes into my dial and then you can load them faster, okay, it says no more so that's it. These are uh the dials that are available uh, my dial, you saw a custom dial here's. The one where you can choose a picture and you could change the font, color and so forth. You can kind of create your own uh watch face from there as well, which is a nice feature that you can do too all right. We'Ve looked at this thing from top to bottom now it is officially the aries. Yes, the greek god of war watch yeah new for 2021 from zeblaze at their official store on aliexpress check. The show notes got a link over there to pick it up or head on over to banggood right now, it's in flash sale.
Usually when it is, i don't have a coupon, but hey 20 bucks wow. What a watch for 20 bucks it's really nice! Now it should be lighting up there you go. I just got to twist it the rest of the way, lots of capabilities in this one totally waterproof um yeah, three atmosphere. You can definitely swim with it: lots of different style colors. You can get it in and custom bands you can put on it.
