boAt Xtend Smartwatch Features

The User interface is quite friendly and very convenient to use. It comes with a single button on the side of the Xtend smartwatch, which powers the watch and even turns it down. Since the display is a touch screen, so you do not need a lot to work with. It does not come with much animation in the bar menu; it is simple and easy to navigate. But, the watch can sometimes become quite slow and lag, which is a downside, but since it is cheap, we can’t expect the company to use the highest processors as other watches do. So from the price point, we believe it is a fair bargain. 

The Xtend Smartwatch also comes with the basic fitness features that include checking the daily activity of the wearer, such as the total number of steps, the amount of calories burned in the activity, it tracks the sleeping pattern, breath tracking, menstrual cycle tracking which is a lifesaver for people who forget and even stress tracking. The amount of times your body has been under stress show clearly on the watch, so you might want to take a breather, and the Xtend Smartwatch can be the perfect reminder for that. The watch has 14 support modes, all of which work perfectly well; you can check them out and choose the one that works for you. Connect it with your devices to get notifications for any social media activity, calls, and messages. 

Display

Next comes the display; the Xtend Smartwatch has a 42mm square shape display. Users will see the TFT panel and the big bezels on the screen. What makes the screen good is how it goes off when the watch is off, so this way, you will not notice the visible bezels. Since the watch does not have an on display, it does not look or feel cheap in terms of the display. It offers 12 levels of brightness and a screen time of 20 seconds. Some people believe the boAt Xtend Smartwatch looks better than the other watches. An excellent viewing angle, unsaturated color, and a decent price range make the display feel worthy enough. 

Design and Comfort 

With so many smartwatches in the market, users have a lot to compare with. You can’t get much when it comes to a smartwatch because they are pretty much the same; their dials might be different, but the comfort and build quality make up a good watch. Since this is a significant aspect of any watch apart from its features, our boAt Xtend Smartwatch review regarding the design and comfort will help you fully. 

Over time, boAt has worked on improving the Smartwatch’s design quality, and it now offers users a premium watch experience in terms of look. The design of this Xtend Smartwatch is inspired by the Apple Watch Series 3. The company has tried to match up to the level and come up with something of that sort, but at affordable rates, so every customer gets a chance to experience a Smartwatch. Now in comparison with other watches like Redmi, the quality of the boAt Xtend Smartwatch is a bit better. It has a narrow choice of colors, and the one that stands out is the black color and golden metallic frame. The watch is also water resistant, so you do not have to worry about it getting ruined as soon as it is hit by water. The 5ATM resistance will prove to be helpful. It is perfect for everyday use, especially with the comfortable silicon straps that make it easier on the wrist.
