NoiseFit Evolve 3 is a new addition to Noise’s smart wearables catalog under Rs. 4000. You get a premium design and a big AMOLED display. And it also features Bluetooth calling to answer phone calls directly on your smartwatch. I tried this watch for a couple of days here’s our full NoiseFit Evolve 3 review with pros and cons to help you make your purchase decision.
NoiseFit Evolve 3 Review
The NoiseFit Evolve 3 comes in four colors; Mist Grey, Royal Blue, Vintage Brown, and Jet Black. We have the Black variant here which looks quite slick. You can buy it for an introductory price of Rs. 3,999, post which, it will be increased to Rs. 4,999. That being said, let’s dive into our review of the Evolve 3 smartwatch.
NoiseFit Evolve 3: Design and Build Quality
NoiseFit Evolve 3 comes with a round dial and it is a bit bigger than a regular round dial watch. The watch looks exactly like a regular analog watch until the screen lights up. The case is made from polycarbonate but it looks and even feels like a metal casing. The smartwatch has a robust finish all over the case that really stands out and gives it a premium look and feel.
The screen is completely flat and is flushed seamlessly with the casing which again gives this watch a flagship feel. It comes with 2 buttons on the right side, the primary microphone, and the loudspeaker on the self side.
The microphone and loudspeaker holes are not on the casing but on the back panel which keeps the watch’s premium aesthetics intact. The build quality of NoiseFit Evolve 3 is above its price range I can assure you that and on top of that, you are getting the IP68 water and dust resistance.
The straps on the other hand failed to impress me in many ways. They are made of silicon material and have a rubbery finish all over. This rubbery finish feels almost sticky to the touch and I had to struggle a lot putting the extra step through the loop. That aside, the straps are 22mm and easily replaceable making them compatible with aftermarket 22mm watch straps.
NoiseFit Evolve 3: Display
NoiseFit Evolve 3 comes with a big 1.43 inches display with surpassingly thin bezels around it. The cover glass is fitted seamlessly into the case and has a nice feel to it. It is AMOLED and has a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels with 326 PPI pixel density which makes it a very crisp display on a smartwatch.
The display is very bright and easily readable outdoors, it got 500 nits peak brightness but it lacks an auto-brightness feature. There are four watch faces available on the watch and the NoiseFit app includes the other 150+ cloud-based watch faces.
These watch faces can be installed on the watch from the app and the watch can keep 4 watch faces at a time stored to quickly switch between them. You can also use any of your gallery images to create a custom watch face but the watch over-brightens the images.
NoiseFit Evolve 3: Features
NoiseFit Evolve 3 provides the features you expect from a smartwatch and nothing more. Other than telling time, it can also tell your heart rate, blood oxygen, and stress levels and can analyze your sleep.
One more amazing feature of this smartwatch is that you can pick up or make calls right from the watch. If the watch is connected to the phone, you will get the ringing notification on the watch and you can either pick up or reject the call on the watch.
Now, let us get through all these features one by one, and let me tell you which one’s I like and which ones are kind of meh. The health features like the heart rate and blood oxygen are not very accurate and the reading often fluctuates.
Having said that, the calling feature works great, the loudspeaker is loud enough to listen to the conversation but if you are in a noisy place then you need to bring the watch closer to your ears.
NoiseFit Evolve 3: Watch UI and NoiseFit App
The watch UI is very easy to adapt to even if you are new to smartwatches. You just swipe across for different body measurements like heart rate, blood oxygen, stress, and sleep. Swiping down shows your notifications and swiping up shows the quick settings.
One thing which I didn’t like about this watch’s interface is that you need to go to the menu for music control, there’s no shortcut provided.
NoiseFit app is used to bind the NoiseFit Evolve 3 to your smartphone and you get a lot of features in the app to customize the watch features. You can see all the health-related data recorded by the watch on the main screen and you can see that data in graphs if you go further.
You can customize the notifications, set alarms, sync contacts (up to 10 contacts), and customize quick replies. This quick reply feature does not work on WhatsApp or Telegram, it just works on text messages.
NoiseFit Evolve 3: Battery and Charging
NoiseFit Evolve 3 comes with a 300 mAh battery which is big enough to give you four to six days of battery backup with typical usage. Your mileage may vary and it will depend on how often you use the Bluetooth calling feature. It comes with a magnetic charger which charges this watch in about 2 hours completely.
NoiseFit Evolve 3: Pros and Cons
- Premium build and design
- Big and bright AMOLED
- Bluetooth calling
- IP68 certified
- Straps are not comfortable
- Average battery backup
- No voice assistant
NoiseFit Evolve 3 Review: Final Verdict
To sum up the review, NoiseFit Evolve 3 is a smartwatch that you should buy for its looks and AMOLED display. The Bluetooth calling feature is also a plus if you like it. Overall, the features justify the price smartwatch and the watch is a complete package at this price. But again, if you’re here for voice assistant or want extremely accurate health tracking, you may have to look somewhere else.
