Arbily Smartwatch review

Arbily Smartwatch 1
REVIEW – It took me many years to buy my first smartwatch. I have always been partial to large and heavy mechanical automatic watches that have a sleek and/or industrial look. A couple of years ago, I purchased my first smartwatch that was made by Fossil and it is large and boasts a design that I like. One of the reasons that I do not own an Apple watch is the design and format that is proprietary and not a design I favor. I now have the opportunity to review the Arbily Smartwatch which while much cheaper than the Apple watch, looks quite similar.

What is it?

The Arbily Smartwatch features a Heart Rate Monitor, it is waterproof, has a Sleep Tracker, a Pedometer, and a Calorie Counter,

This watch looks similar to the Apple watch in design and shape. It is rectangular in shape and all black with a control button on each side. As shown I also received it with the black silicone band, but other colors are available.

The following is the function that helps you to regulate your breathing and relax:

What I like

  • The number of features for the cost
  • The sleek look
  • The decent battery charge. (For me it lasts more than a day but that is subject to the use of functionality)

What I’d change

  • Add the capability to answer calls
  • Add the capability to respond to emails and messages with generic responses (ie: “Busy Now”, “Will Call Back”, etc)

Final thoughts

The Arbily Smartwatch is a nice looking smartwatch that has several useful features and functions and is a good bang for the buck. For the price, I think it will be hard to beat if it continues to perform well over a long period of time. While I am not a fan of small rectangle watches, I do find myself wearing this watch quite often when I am running around doing chores and errands. Its connection to my phone remains solid and surprisingly so more than other smartwatches that I own that cost quite a bit more.

Price: $40.99
