boAt Xtend Review
The boAt Xtend looks and feels premium, thanks to its golden coating on the sides. The smartwatch is extremely light and pleasant to wear. We've been using the smartwatch for quite some time and have never experienced any discomfort.
While the smartwatch has a reasonable degree of brightness indoors, it just isn't visible in direct sunshine. The boAt Wave app offers over 50 watch face variations for users to pick from.
The watch's user interface is slow, and the touch responsiveness isn't great either; it occasionally takes more than one touch to respond. What disappointed us was its inability to respond to any of the alerts straight from the watch.
The Xtend's heart rate and SpO2 readings mirror those of our other similar smartwatches, such as the Amazfit Bip U. It is reasonably accurate, however, it should not be relied upon solely.
boAt claims seven days of battery life on a single charge, which we found to be accurate in our tests with heart rate monitoring set to every thirty minutes. The watch takes about two hours to fully charge via the magnetic points on its back.
Clearly, the boAt Xtend is a smartwatch that is more concerned with being fashionable than with being a health or sleep tracking companion. Before you buy this one, you should look at other brands' offerings.
