NoiseFit Origin Review: A Dependable Performer


There’s no dearth of smartwatches, especially in the affordable price range. Indian brands like boAt and Noise have made a special place in this space, offering feature-rich budget smartwatches. The one we will discuss is the very recent NoiseFit Origin, which is priced at Rs 6,499 and can be considered a special watch for the company because it brings a new Nebula UI and the EN 1 processor, Bluetooth Calling support, an AMOLED display, and more. But how well does it perform, and can it be considered an option when looking for a budget option? Let’s find out.

NoiseFit Origin Review: Price in India and Availability

The Noise Origin is priced at Rs 6,499 and can be bought via Flipkart, Amazon, Croma, and It comes in Black, Brown (with a leather strap), Jet Black, Silver grey, Mosaic Blue, and Midnight Black colours.

NoiseFit Origin Review: Design and Comfort

The Noise Origin has a stainless steel chassis, and this, combined with what the company calls a “Contour-cut design”, gives quite a premium feel. The packaging is quite good too, adding to the looks. While the dial rim appears to be rotatable, it’s not functional. However, it does have a crown that can rotate to navigate through the menus. This is accompanied by another physical button, which can launch various sports modes.

I got the Jet Black colour, which comes with silicon traps and while it will look like just another smartwatch, the quality does shine. The watch feels comfortable and doesn’t hurt the wrist. However, it is quite big for me (and could be for many girls). This may not be the case with people who prefer big dials.

The watch has a 3 ATM rating, so sweat droplets while working out or water splashes while washing hands won’t be a problem. But, there’s no dust resistance.

NoiseFit Origin Review: Display

It has a 1.46-inch AMOLED display, which is readable and bright. It’s aptly vivid and shows enhanced colours, which make the UI quite easy to use. While the display size is not what I usually prefer, I was impressed with its smoothness and responsiveness.

The brightness levels (up to 5) were adequate indoors and outdoors. Even at level 1, I could use the watch conveniently without any readability issues. I usually kept the brightness to level 3 or 4, which was apt under sunlight. There’s also support for the Always-on-Display (AoD) feature, which proves very attractive but does drain the battery. I was also impressed by the variety of watch face options offered.

NoiseFit Origin Review: Software and Performance

The smartwatch Noise’s latest EN 1 processor offers better transitions and processing power. My daily life reflected this as the UI has pretty smooth transitions. It doesn’t lag and navigating through the UI has been smooth. That said, the watch takes a few seconds to accept the back command, but this is not that consistent. There’s support for Linear motor technology for the haptic feedback, which is subtle and a good addition.

The new Nebula UI is also smooth and well-organised. The menu is easy to navigate. There are four menu views: grid, list, scatter, and wheel. While all of them are accessible, I am usually inclined towards the list view. There’s a dedicated widgets section, which makes things quite streamlined. The notifications and the control centre resemble an Apple Watch; the similarity is uncanny.

The dedicated sections to instantly check the heart rate, sleep cycle, and SpO2 are colour-coded and nicely laid out for easy readings. The UI is modern for a smartwatch priced under Rs 7,000. This has left me impressed.

The watch supports Bluetooth Calling too, which has been quite convenient for taking calls when my phone isn’t around. The call quality is loud and clear. There’s one problem: the speaker placement is such that calling can be erratic when the wrist is not kept in a certain position. This can be tiresome, and one might end up refraining from taking calls via the watch. That said, this is an issue that comes and goes. Hopefully, it can be fixed with an update.

There were a lot of utility features like an alarm clock, music control (which I like), SOS functionality, and much more that you can get your hands on.

NoiseFit Origin Review: Fitness and Health Tracking

There’s the usual set of health features, and all of them give fairly accurate results. I mainly used the smartwatch to track steps and got mostly accurate results compared to an Apple Watch SE (1st Gen) and a dedicated step-tracking app.

The heart rate sensor was good, too. The sleep tracker gives an overview of deep, light, and REM sleep with proper data. Although I am too uncomfortable wearing a watch and sleeping, this one didn’t feel that inconvenient. So, the watch can be a good option if you like to keep an eye on your sleep cycle. It also has a bunch of sports modes, so you can keep the fitness freak inside you alive. There’s a stress tracker too, which tells the intensity of stress. However, it takes some time to give a result.

The dedicated companion app can help you monitor all metrics and is quite streamlined and easy to navigate. It has an Apple-inspired ring system on the homepage to maintain your daily goal, and if you are fond of it, you will like using the Noise smartwatch. I especially enjoyed this as I primarily use an Apple Watch, and completing those rings kept me motivated every day. There’s a section to change the watch faces (you will find a lot of options), to share your goals with others, and to create challenges for the fulfilment of set goals.

NoiseFit Origin Review: Battery Life and Charging

This aspect impressed me. The Origin smartwatch can easily last up to 5 days on a single charge and up to 8 on standby. With Bluetooth Calling, AoD, and high brightness in the mix, this can go up to four days of working, which is also good. With the power-saving mode, this can go up to 10 days, which makes it a very reliable phone. It takes the watch about two hours to fully charge from the dead.

NoiseFit Origin Review: Verdict

The Noise Origin is positioned as a premium offering by the brand and does fare well. It offers impressive features like a bright display, a dependable Nebula UI, and a long-lasting battery life. It also has a nice design and looks quite good on the hands while being comfortable.

However, I wish the watch was priced more aggressively and was under Rs 5,000, for several watches with almost the same specs and features are available for a relatively lower price. It also doesn’t have GPS support, which can prove helpful while running or walking.

That said, the watch is a great one in its segment and feels quite dependable in the long run. And if the little niggles are not something that would bother you, the Noise Origin is a good choice.
