One of the most active manufacturers in the wearables industry is the China-based NO.1 brand. The company has an incredibly long lineup of smartwatches and smartbands which apparently is getting bigger today as they announce the new NO.1 F18 smartwatch. If you’re an outdoor person, then stick around to learn more about it!
The NO.1 F18 is what we call a rugged watch as it comes with an IP68 rating, which means it’s dust and water proof. That doesn’t stop it from looking good though, as it also packs a 1.3-inch 240 x 240 touchscreen display that utilizes a special technology to make it look 3D.
Once we get inside it, we find a lot of hardware that usually isn’t available on similar devices, such as the built-in GPS module which also works with Beidou and Glonass. In addition to that, the module supports Hot Start Positioning, meaning it’ll connect quickly in order to precisely calculate the amount of steps, distance walked and other data without the need of a smartphone. Other hardware includes a Bluetooth 4.2 module, a Nordic 52832 Chip and a 350mAh for a 12 days maximum autonomy.
Features wise, the NO.1 F18 comes with smart reminders for phone calls, messages, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and more. It can record data for multiple sports such as running, cycling climbing, tennis and so on. Plus it sports a second generation heart rate sensor to keep track of your health.
