This is anuj from gadget kick today. We have with us one more budget, smartwatch from boat and its the boat vertex, and in this video we will do the unboxing and show you its features. So here is the box of the smartwatch in the front of the box. We have the model name watch vertex, and here we have the picture of the watch and then the key features such as 1.69 inch, 2.5 d display customizable watch faces and you get multiple sports modes. At this side, we can see its compatible with both android and ios platform. At the back of the box, we can see some more features, such as its ip67 dust and sweatproof. You get bmi calculator, call text and app notification, camera and music control sedentary alert. Custom run plans, sleep, heart and spo to monitoring and the menstruation cycle tracker for females. The mrp of this smartwatch is rupees 6990, but its available to purchase for rupees 2 for double line on flipkart now lets open the box and show you the content. So in the box on the top, we have the watch itself and guys this smartwatch is available in four colors blue red gray and black. We will look at the smartwatch in a moment. Lets see what else we have in the box. So here we have the documentation, and this includes warranty card product catalog from boat, and here is a user guide in the user guide.
We also have the qr code to download the companion app and then here we have the charging cable. The charging cable is magnetic, and here is how you attach it at the back of the smart watch so thats all we have in the box now lets look at the smart watch closely boat watch vertex is a budget fitness smartwatch now looking at the design and Build quality the build quality seems decent, keeping in mind the pricing of the smart watch. These straps are made up of good quality material and feels also comfortable on the hand. So in terms of the design, there is a major issue in this smartwatch. So when the watch was revealed on the boat website, it was featured like this. Looking at the image you can see, the display seems like an edge to edge display, but now here you can see we have these thick bezels on the top and at the bottom of the screen, which is again not bad, keeping in mind the pricing. But this is setting up the wrong expectations for those who are buying it because of the display now coming back to the overview in the front, we have the 1.69 inch display with 2.5 d curved glass, and here on this side, we have the crown button to Wake up the screen, the body of the smartwatch, has a metallic design, so its made up of plastic now, looking at the back, we have the charging pins and the sensors for heart rate and spo2 now lets turn it on and pair it with our phone.
So the smart watch is on and you can also go through the menu, but let me first connect it to the companion app portcrest. So here we have the app installed and during the initial setup it will ask you to connect the watch, and here we have our watch connected and ready to use. Now lets look at the watch features first, so here we are on the watch face and upon long pressing you can switch between different watch faces and guys. You can also add more watch faces through the companion app, which i will show you in a moment about the controls swiping down from the top shows you, the quick settings, and here you can change the brightness and see the connection status. Swiping right or left gives you the access to the quick cards, and here we have the step count: heart rate, spo2, music and so on. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen shows you the main menu. So here i have noticed that you dont have the quick access to the notifications, which is usually present in all the smartwatches now about the menu. First, we have the messages which is the notification history, and then we have the step count and guys here. I must tell you that the touch response is good and the menu of the smartwatch is stutter free. After the step count, we have the sleep menu and here you can see last nights, sleep details.
After that we have the activity menu, which is basically the workout mode. Talking about the sports modes. You get the walking running, cycling, skipping, badminton, basketball and football. Then we have the heart rate menu and guys. This smartwatch comes with the continuous heart rate. Monitoring, though the data seems accurate when youre wearing the watch, but we have noticed that it does show some random data. When you keep the watch on a table, soft toy or even on our apple mouse and the same thing, we have noticed with the sp auto monitoring. Next, we have the camera shutter option, and with this you can use your smartwatch as a remote camera shutter. After that, we have the music controls, and here you can control the music on your phone. You can also increase or decrease the volume. After that we have the breathe menu by which you can do some breathing exercises. Then, in the menu we have the flashlight and after that we have the settings in this settings. For some reason we have the stopwatch alarm and also the timer option, which i think should be on the main menu and not in the settings. After these options we have the actual settings, such as brightness vibration, theater mode and the usual reset power off in the qr code for the app so thats all the features we have on this smartwatch and right now i can say that feature wise its fine, but We need to test the watch more to let you know more about the data accuracy now lets talk about the companion, app board quest.
So here we are on the home page and first we have todays step count, calories, burn and distance travelled, then below it. We have the heart rate, sleep data, and you can also see the historical data by tapping on the menu. There is also a modes page and in this you can create your custom workout plan such as goal to lose weight, get fit and so on and to be honest, if you use these features properly, then you will sure find them useful. Now, coming back to the app on the top, you can see the connected device and the remaining battery of the watch. Now looking at the settings. First, we have the watch faces and guys you get a lot of cloud based watch faces in the app Music and you can also create a customizable watch face after that we have the usual features such as sedentary reminder, alarms and then the watch settings, and here You can set your goal and in the watch settings you can enable the wig gestures which works. Ok and we notice that the race to wake feature is a hit and miss Music. Then in the watch settings we have the notifications, and here you can select the apps for which you want the notification on your watch and talking about it here is how you get the call alert. You can also reject the call from the watch itself, and here is how you get the message alert.
You dont get the preset replies option and also no emoji support, then in the menu we have the auto heart rate, and here you can set the time interval and, lastly, for the iphone users, you can connect the app with the apple health, so thats all the Features we have in the companion app and the app looks good, but a bit confusing, for example, for notifications. You have to go to the setting page settings and then the watch settings after that youll find the notification option and, according to me the app should have a simple and an easy to use ui. So overall, the bot watch vertex looks good on paper. The build quality is good and design wise, though its good, but if youre expecting a full screen display then forget about it as youre getting a thick chain at the bottom of the screen. Performance wise, the step counts are fairly accurate and even the heart rate and the spo2 data seems accurate, but there is something wrong with these sensors and it does show reading of non living things. Maybe a firmware update will solve this issue, but at the moment i wont be recommending this smartwatch to you, as there are definitely few more options available under rupees 3000, which even offered bluetooth calling so thats it guys. This was the unboxing and overview of the boatwatch vertex.
