Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 Review
Yes, the Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 is worth buying if your budget is Rs 1999 but if you can go above Rs 2000 then you should skip this smartwatch because the watch is a bit slow, the UI doesn’t give a good vibe, and the software is also not that great either while it’s made out of 100% plastic which doesn’t feel great in hands.
I love Indian brands, they’re providing smartwatches at affordable prices but when it comes to the software side of things, everything changes.
Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 has only one problem which is software, other than that, everything is perfect on this smartwatch. So if you believe that the Noise will push OTA update and fix all the issues then yes, you can consider buying Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 but if you don’t trust the Noise brand then you should stay away from this smartwatch.

I have said many times that Noise, BoAt, and other Indian brands should learn from RealMe, Xiaomi, and even Honor when it comes to software whether it’s Watch UI or application because no matter how many features you add to the watch, the software is a key factor.
Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 Pros and Cons
|Magnetic charging pin
|100% Plastic Build
|50+ built-in sports Mode
|150+ Watch Faces
|Decent Battery Life
|Watch Feels Slow, sometimes
|Comfortable to wear
|Close to accurate data
|Not that Heavy
|Available all the Necessary Sensors
The Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 comes with a 1.80-inches touchscreen TFT display with a resolution of 240×286 pixels while it has 550 nits pick brightness.
The used TFT panel is bright and there won’t be any issue while using it outdoors, you can also adjust the screen brightness directly from the watch itself.
By the way, you can’t expect an AMOLED panel under Rs 2000 but still, if you want an AMOLED display then you can consider the Dizo Watch R which is available at Rs 3999.
Overall, for the price of Rs 1999, you will be more than happy with the display quality, here, Noise has done a great job, with no complaints whatsoever.
Design, Comfort, and Build
The watch feels great in the hands, even after wearing it for hours, your skin won’t hurt which is great because this is only priced at Rs 1999 and getting good quality strep is beyond amazing.
By the way, it has 22mm strep, so if you don’t like the default one then you can buy any other 22m strep from Amazon. Now, keep in mind that, the default strep hook is also made out of plastic which is not justifiable, they should have gone with other material.
Also, the watch is available in Jet Black, Mist Grey, Olive Green, Rose Pink, and Rose Pink color options. Now if you ask me, I would go with Jet Black because it will look great with any kind of clothes.
In case you don’t know, the Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 is made out of 100% plastic but why? because if Noise had used the metal or any other material then it would have cost them more money and yes, the price of this watch would have gone up, in short, they wanted to keep the price low and wanted more profit.
I still feel that in the budget segment Honor and RealMe have the best software support, Noise and other Indian brands are also working on it but still, it’s a long way to go.
By the way, you will have to download the NoiseFit from the app store or play store to use the smartwatch. One thing to note, the watch doesn’t have a microphone or speaker, in short, no calling feature on this smartwatch.
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 cheap 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.
I don’t know what new Noise has done this time, whatever they have done is working great because the Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 is providing more accurate data compared to other Noise smartwatches.
By the way, as this is Smartwatch, it has all the sensors like 3-Axis Accelerometer, Optical Heart Rate Sensor, SpO2 (Blood Oxygen Saturation Level), and Wearing Monitoring.
Now, the raise to wake feature is not working great, it takes more than a second which is not a good user experience, I hope Noise fixes this soon
Noise has also added all the necessary features like 150 watch faces, 50-built-in sports Modes, a Female cycle, a Drinking Reminder, an Activity Tracker, Heart Rate Monitor, SpO2, and Stress Monitoring too.
To control everything, we have the NoiseFit app which is available both on iOS as well as on Android.
The SpO2 sensor also works the best, 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%.
By the way, 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.
Overall, if you wanted to buy a fitness band then skip that and consider the Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 but you will have to deal with software.
The battery life won’t be as good as any other budget smartwatch because it only has a 240mAh battery and 550 nits pick brightness which will consume more battery outdoors.
Noise has also promised 7-days of battery life but that won’t happen in Real Life.
If you use all the features from SpO2, heart rate monitoring and sleep tracking then expect the battery life to be around 2 to 3 days battery life.
Now, if you don’t use all the features then you will get battery life to be around 3 to 4 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.
If you’re looking for a smartwatch under Rs 2000 that looks great in hands, calculates accurate fitness data, good display quality then yes, you can consider the Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 but if you wanted longer battery life, smooth experience, premium build, more accurate sleep data then you have to spend more then Rs 2000 because you won’t get everything under Rs 2000.
Now, you can’t find the perfect device, you will have to sacrifice one or two features but in the end, you will have to ask yourself, which two or three features I want the most and if you can find those features in Noise ColorFit Pulse 2 then just order the watch.
