Fitness Trackers are steadily becoming popular, especially among the youth. Taking a cue from the rise in demand for smart bands, Intex has come up with a smart fitness band, dubbed as the FitRist Pulzz. The name of the wearable is quite similar to the known smart band maker - FitBit. The Intex FitRist is priced at Rs. 1,799. It will be up for sale exclusively via Flipkart in Black, Blue, Green and Violet colour options.
The FitRist Pulzz comes with a 0.66-inch OLED display. It employs Bluetooth to pair with a smartphone (Android or iPhone). The tracker keeps a track of your steps, distance travelled, calories burnt. It also monitors the quality of sleep and is also equipped with a heart rate sensor to estimate pulse count. The smart band also displays notifications for incoming calls, music controllers. Also, users can use it as a remote shutter for their smartphone's camera.
FitRist Pulzz boasts a hydration alarm feature, which reminds the user of drinking water routinely between workouts. The battery on the smart band is touted by Intex to last up to 7 days. It is water-resistant and splash proof to counter accidental spills and rain.
Commenting on the launch Keshav Bansal, Director, Intex Technologies said,"With a growing awareness of fitness as a part of youth’s lifestyle, we have expanded our wearable smart band offering with the new fitRist Pulzz for the fitness conscious and tech savvy youth. We are happy to partner with Flipkart for bringing the fitness device exclusively to consumers and are confident that the platform will ensure quality reach."
