Lenovo HX03F Spectra design


The Lenovo HX03F Spectra has a separable tie that can be pulled off to uncover a USB plug for charging on the tracker unit itself. We have already looked into three different wellness trackers in this value extend with comparative outlines - the Ambrane Flexi Fit, Fastrack Reflex, and Amzer Fitzer. This implies the tracker can be charged by connecting it straightforwardly to any USB charger or USB port on a PC. Once fitted once again into its band, there is practically no shot of it dropping out. The wellness tracker is light at 20g, and its silicone tie was to a great degree agreeable all through our trial. The lash is dark so this band could go off as a minimized watch, yet there are no shading choices.

The clasp is genuinely straightforward and there are gaps to suit an extensive variety of wrist sizes. One of the features of this wellness band is the IP68 rating, which implies is water and residue safe. According to universal gauges, IP68 ensures insurance from water notwithstanding when submerged up to 3m profound, and finish assurance against dust entrance. In our testing, the wellness band was unaffected by sprinkles of water and even worked fine after we submerged it in water for around five minutes at a stretch.

The 0.96-inch OLED screen on the Lenovo HX03F Spectra is very dull. Advertising pictures of the gadget demonstrate a somewhat dynamic and bright show, anyway, the determination is just 80x160 pixels, and its general quality doesn't look as great. So, this band is right now accessible from an optimistic standpoint purchase cost of Rs. 2,299, and we wouldn't expect stellar show quality at this value point.

The Lenovo HX03F Spectra does not have a touchscreen. The interface is controlled by a catch beneath the show. You can cycle between cards - more on them later - with a solitary touch, or long-press for three seconds on a card to get to its menu. This makes for a disappointing knowledge, particularly amidst a run or instructional course.

Turn the band around and you'll see the heart rate sensor at the back. At the point when Auto Measure is turned on, the sensor transmits a sharp squinting light. This doesn't get handicapped consequently when you take the band off and can be irritating. You need to turn it off yourself through the Lenovo Healthy application.



Lenovo HX03F Spectra features and performance

The principal card demonstrates the clock gadget, a commencement for your day by day step objective, the date, day, and battery level. You can alter the presence of the clock, however, the fundamental computerized choice appeared to be the special case that was plainly unmistakable. The other simple choices are simply not suited for the little, pixelated show.

Game mode is for clients hoping to track their vitals, steps, and the length of a movement session. As far as we can tell, in opposition to the standard mode, heart rate following ended up being marginally off base with the band indicating higher-than-common heart thumps notwithstanding amid rest periods amidst a run. This is an examination with a Mio Fuse wellness band, which likewise brags of heart rate detecting as an essential component.

The HX03F Spectra consequently tracks your means and gauges the calories consumed, with details obvious on the third card. The step following precision was all in or all out and offered conflicting outcomes in the examination with an Apple Watch and in addition the Health application of an iPhone which stayed on our individual all through our strolls and runs. We recorded around 5,000 stages of each day by and large. On some days, the progression depends on the two gadgets fluctuated by around 150, while on different days the distinction was as incredible as 800-900 stages.

Heart rate appears on the fourth card. You can tap Measure heart rate in the Lenovo Healthy application to demonstrate to you the latest heart rate record, but on the other hand, it's naturally set to log this at regular intervals. Advance records are restricted on the Lenovo Healthy application since it just stores information for the recent hours.

A clever component of the Lenovo HX03F Spectra wellness tracker is the Find my telephone on the fifth card, which sends a warning to your connected cell phone, despite the fact that this is of constrained utilize if the telephone is in quiet mode. It's additionally somewhat irritating, - our connected iPhone demonstrated individual warnings once consistently after we set off this element. In conclusion, the 6th card gives you a chance to get to things like the alert, gadget data, and power off the catch. A caution must be set through the Lenovo Healthy application, and the band vibrates attentively, which is sufficient to wake you up.

Rest following on the Lenovo HX03F Spectra was genuinely precise, and it figured out how to recognize profound and in addition light rest independently. An examination chart with independent profound and light rest segments was a decent expansion. You can track insights for up to the previous eight days broadly, and there's additionally a month to month normal for as long as five months. All things considered, there was one night when the band totally neglected to track precise rest timings.

The Lenovo Healthy application is accessible on both Android and iOS and matches up with the HX03F Spectra. It offers a straightforward however practical UI with areas for the progression counter, heart rate, rest, battery level, and application synchronizing. The investigation helps in getting a general photo of your advance. Heart rate following does not match up with Google Fit or the iOS Health application, yet there is a chart that demonstrates your normal heart rate for the whole day and resets at midnight. Heart rate information is put away inside the application for up to a year with a specific end goal to demonstrate your month to month midpoints. The application likewise offers a reference run that tells you whether your heart rate is light, medium, or overwhelming. As far as we can tell with the wellness band, heart rate observing was genuinely exact and offered examination keeping pace with a Mi Band 2 and a Mio Fuse wellness tracker.

Lenovo cases to offer a battery life of 10 days on a solitary full charge. As far as certifiable use notwithstanding, the HX03F Spectra figured out how to last around 7.5 days with the consistent advance following, programmed heart rate observing exchanged on, 3-4 long periods of rest following, and the incidental Sports mode. This is nearer to how a normal client may utilize it, and battery deplete will be a greater issue on the off chance that you utilize Sports mode every now and again, considering that it includes constant heart rate detecting.

Decision

The Lenovo HX03F Spectra has a moderate plan, a dull show, and a once in a while baffling UI. In any case, the Lenovo Healthy application is perfect and clean, with the capacity to effectively track insights synchronized from the wellness band. Step following is unpredictable, rest following is precise, battery life is average, and heart rate is estimated sufficiently well when in auto measure mode.

At a MOP of Rs. 2,299, the Lenovo HX03F Spectra is a conventional offering for a spending wearable, and there's popularity for this section in the Indian market. While its battery offers a slight edge over them as of late propelled iVoomi FitMe, you may be in an ideal situation with the attempted and confided in Mi Band 2 from Xiaomi.
