One of the biggest problems with Indian smartwatch brands is Software, now that they have sold thousands of smartwatches, they need to work on R&D otherwise, brands like Amazfit will surpass them.
The newly launched Noise ColorFit Caliber Go also has the same software problem, so let’s find out in this review whether you should spend Rs 1999 or not.
Noise ColorFit Caliber Go Review
Noise ColorFit Caliber Go has all the sensors from heart rate, SpO2, and even sleep monitoring but the fact is, non of them works well, the heart rate sensor can even calculate heartbeat on paper or even on plastic.
As I have said, the Noise ColorFit Caliber Go is a solid option, if you wanted a smartwatch to see the time and date, don’t buy the watch to calculate your fitness, SpO2, and even sleep monitoring.
Noise ColorFit Caliber Go Review
Noise is trying to provide all the features in the affordable smartwatch and because of that, the Noise ColorFit Caliber Go loses out on Accuracy. Nevertheless, it’s a good smartwatch to check the time and date.
The Noise ColorFit Caliber Go is priced at Rs 1,999 in India and it will be available from 3rd September 2022 via Flipkart it comes with Jet black, Rose pink, Olive green, Midnight blue, and Mist grey color options.
For a limited time, the smartwatch will be available at only Rs 1,499.
The Noise ColorFit Caliber Go comes with a 1.69-inches TFT display with a resolution of 240 x 280 Pixels and 218 PPI Density while it has a pick brightness of 500 nits.
The 500 nits brightness will help a lot when using the smartwatch outdoors, whether you want to see a text message or anything else, the screen will be visible.
Noise has also added 150+ watch faces which you can access from the NoiseFit Application, you can also add custom images on the smartwatch by using the application.
By the way, the smartwatch also has big bezels around the display which doesn’t give the premium feel but at the same time, this is Rs 1999 smartwatch.
Overall, for the price of Rs 1999, the display quality is great, and there won’t be any kind of problem in day-to-day usage.
Design, Comfort, and Build
The smartwatch is made out of 100% plastic while the strep is made out of Silicone. The fun fact even the buckle is made from plastic.
One of the downsides of strep is its proprietary locking mechanism which means, you can’t use any plug and pin strep, you will have to find a proprietary locking mechanism strep.
It also has a small bump on the rear side where Noise has added all the necessary sensors along with the Magnetic Charging pin.
The smartwatch is comfortable too, even while wearing it all day, and all night, you won’t uncomfortable at all.
Now, you also have to keep in mind that, this is Rs 1999 smartwatch, so don’t expect premium quality, the used plastic does feel kind of cheap but when you wear the watch for days, you won’t even notice it.
Talking about the app, it has all the features that a smartwatch should have. You will be able to see, the battery percentage, steps, calories, sleep tracking, and heart rate graph.
Also, if you run a lot then you can also use your smartphone GPS which is added to the NoiseFit app.
If you ask me, the application UI needs to charge, it feels outdated and the same can be said for the watch UI too.
The NoiseFit app is well-organized and you won’t face any kind of problem while using it. By the way, the NoiseFit app will only work on iOS 9+ & Android 6+ devices.
One More thing, for some reason, Noise pushing ads in the NoiseFit App, they’re marketing other noise smartwatches within the app.
Now, I didn’t feel good when I was checking the sleep data or SpO2 because Noise is falsing new smartwatch on your face when you open the application.
I hope, they remove the Ads and work more on improving the app.
Health and Fitness Tracking
The biggest letdown was testing the Fitness Tracking,
I mean, the heart rate sensor was working on plastic, tissue paper, and even smartphone.
I’m hoping that this is a software issue and not a hardware issue otherwise, the Noise ColorFit Caliber Go can’t be called a smartwatch, it will remain the watch only.
Now, the SpO2 sensor was working well, it doesn’t feel gimmicky and the same can be said for the heart rate monitoring too.
The SPO2 CLIP machine gives accurate data but at the same time, the watch showed an error margin of around 5% which isn’t very bad as the Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 is only priced at Rs 1999.
Let’s say, if the smartwatch is showing 110 footsteps then it would be 120, so keep the error margin around 5%.
As this is Smartwatch, it has all the sensors like Accelerometer, Optical Heart Rate Sensor, SpO2 (Blood Oxygen Saturation Level), and Wearing Monitoring.
Noise has also added all the necessary features like 150 watch faces, 30-built-in sports Modes, a Female cycle, a Drinking Reminder, an Activity Tracker, Heart Rate Monitor, SpO2, and Stress Monitoring too.
By the way, 10 sport modes are available on the smartwatch itself while the remaining 20 are available in the NoiseFit app.
The sleep monitoring data is not that great, so don’t trust this watch at all, it’s good that Noise has added Sleep Monitoring in the Rs 2000 smartwatch but in real life, it doesn’t work the best and it feels more gimmicky.
Again, to provide accurate sleep data, a company needs to work on software while Noise is still, fingering out the software, so we have to wait and see.
Overall, if you want to buy a smartwatch to calculate the SpO2, Heart-Rate, and sleep monitoring then kindly skip the Noise ColorFit Caliber Go and consider the Amazfit Bip 3.
The Noise ColorFit Caliber Go comes with a 300mAh battery and it will take 2 to 2.5 hours to charge from 0% to 100%.
Now, Noise has promised 10 days of battery life with 100% charge but in real life, expect the battery life to be around 7 to 8 days with normal use while with full usage, 5 to 7 days.
Of course, battery life will depend on every user and how they use the smartwatch. So take these numbers to get an idea about the battery.
Noise ColorFit Caliber Go Pros and Cons
|Brighter Display||Big Bezels around the display|
|Solid Battery Life||100% Plastic|
|Comfortable to Wear||NoiseFit App Needs Improvement|
|SpO2 Sensor provides close to accurate data||Watch UI is not the best|
|Comes with Handy features||Worst Heart Rate Sensors|
|Lightweight||Sleep Data is not Accurate|
|Proprietary Locking Mechanism Strep|
Smartwatches have become more affordable because Indian brands like boAt, Fire-Boltt, Noise, Crossbeats, and Zebronics are importing 80% of smartwatch components from China while just adding software on top.
So yes, Noise is created by Indian citization but it’s not 100% made in India.
Coming back to the Noise ColorFit Caliber Go,
If you wanted a smartwatch under Rs 2000 and you don’t care about the Heart rate, fitness data and Sleep monitoring then do consider the Noise ColorFit Caliber Go to see the time and date.
