Amazfit Neo 3.5

If you are looking to ease yourself into a healthier lifestyle but don’t know where to start, a fitness watch can be a good first step to see how you are currently doing before making any major changes. The Amazfit Neo is a very tempting choice with a reasonable price tag of just under £40, as you would expect however there will be a few compromises for this entry level price, the first is the chunky retro design although 90s kids will love the look. The Neo comes with all the basic features to give you a deeper insight into your health including heart rate monitoring, sleep monitoring and real-time workout tracking.

The Always-on Display will last up to 28 days with normal use, it is water resistant up to 50m, the 24-hour heart rate tracking is achieved via the BioTrackerTMPPG sensor 3, which provides real-time heart rate monitoring and will alert you to abnormal rates. There are four physical buttons, Select, Up, Down and Back, that navigate the menus and compliment that classic design. The Neo works with the PAITM Health Assessment System, that combines all the data to let you see your physical state with a personalised score and can be used anytime, anywhere and with any form of exercise in your daily life. As well as counting steps, the Neo will track calories and three different exercise modes, running, walking or cycling, and view more detailed information about your exercise time and heart rate.

The Sleep tracker will automatically recognise when you go to sleep and will track the various stages including REM and Nap monitoring, the Neo can work with third party apps to notify you when you received a call, text, email or other notifications however, you cannot read or reply to them from the watch. The Amazfit Neo uses the Zepp app, this is where you will find the breakdown of all your fitness and sleep details, the app is easy to navigate, it connects reliably, and data appears accurate when compared to more expensive and well-known fitness watches. If you are looking to test the water with fitness watches without committing to an expensive feature packed watch the Neo is worth looking at, you get a good insight into your activity levels, sleep quality and heart rate providing you with a good foundation to up your health regime.
