World’s largest computer seller has never compromised in exploiting latest tech to introduce impressive products. One such example is the Lenovo EGO smartwatch, the latest offering from the company. Released at an affordable ₹1,999 the EGO smartwatch is ready to hit the low-cost wearables market, currently ruled by Honor and Xiaomi.
EGO is not just a smartwatch, but it can serve as a personalized fitness guide that can perform everything that smartwatches can. A big black front with plastic-rubber frame gives Lenovo EGO an impressive sporty look. The straps are perfectly designed for the wrists to not leave any marks after usage of long hours. Impressively, the pin on the strap looks flimsy but feels quite strong when you use it.
Lenovo EGO Features
There are few features that come along the Lenovo EGO including the heart rate monitor, swim tracking, smart notifications, scientific sleep-tracking, and more. To make the most of the smartwatch, you will be required to download the Lenovo Life Mobile Services app on your Android and iOS device.
One can get optimal results by pairing the smartwatch with Lenovo’s Life app which is an easy affair. However, we must say that the app needs a lot of improvement. Maybe Lenovo can fix the app’s delays in the time to sync with the watch. According to some reviewers, the smartwatch readings were not perfectly synced. The dedicated Lenovo Life app fails to utilize your device’s full hardware potential like Huawei Health or others where the app uses your phone instead of the watch to count your steps.
But, that does not make this smartwatch any less appealing. The smartwatch itself has many features that users will find interesting. Like the real-time heart rate tracker that can give you reading even when you are running, cycling, or doing other exercises.
The smartwatch performance is very impressive when you keep it very close to the skin. Any deviations can affect the readings. The best feature is the sleep-tracking department. It tracks the sleep patterns so perfectly that you can set easy sleep schedules.
You can say that smart notifications are kept to the lowest. The watch needs to be connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth in order to vibrate on every text, call, social media message, or email. However, the message is not displayed.
Coming to the swim tracking feature, it also works nicely as the watch is claimed to be water resistant for up to 50 meters water. It helps you record burned calories, laps, and stroke style while swimming.
Another space where Lenovo EGO impresses is the battery life. A single charge can bring weeks of usage. There is not a specific usage time found yet. Compatible with both Android and iOS, the Lenovo EGO is a robust, good-looking, and an affordable device at just ₹1,999.
