Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch Review: Price & Availability
The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch is available for Rs. 3499 via Amazon, Myntra, Flipkart, GoNoise, and offline stores. It comes in Silver, Teal Blue, Sunset Orange, Charcoal Black, Deep Wine, Rose Pink, Midnight Blue, and Mind Green colors.
Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch Review: Design
The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 will remind you of the Apple Watch when you look at it for the first time. The watch has a rounded square display with tapers on the sides and the frame is metallic. The watch comes in Mint Green, Deep Wine, Pink Rose, Midnight Blue, Charcoal Black, Sunset Orange, Teal Blue, and Silver colors. The unit I received was in Sunset Orange color and the shade of the watch did make it look different from the regular smartwatches we find around us. The watch has a crown as well, which is one more borrowed design element from the Apple Watch. The single crown lets you scroll through the menu, change the watch face, change the volume, and more. There is a tiny microphone below the crown. The other side has a loudspeaker.
The strap is made of silicone and is comfortable to wear for long durations. I wore it continuously for 48 hours and it did not trouble me at all. The strap is changeable and never gets sweaty or hot to wear. The watch is sweat and splash resistant (IP68 rated) so one is safe on that account, but I would still not suggest immersing the device in water.
The backside of the watch has pins that will connect it to the charger bundled inside the box. Sensors like 24H heart rate monitor, SpO2 monitor, and accelerometer are all at the back as well. The SpO2 and heart rate sensors glow green and red when you use these sensors. Otherwise, the backside has a glossy finish which makes it look premium. The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 has a good build quality and measures 44.1×38.1×11.7mm. It weighs 24.1 grams and this makes it feel featherlight on your wrist. The watch uses Bluetooth 5.3 to connect to Android and Apple devices.

Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch Review: Display
The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 comes with a slight upgrade in the display department, from its predecessor. The watch has a 1.72-inch TFT LCDH display that is obviously touch-enabled and has a resolution of 356×400 pixels. The screen has a refresh rate of 60Hz which is felt when the display responds slightly slower during navigation. The brightness level is 500 nits which also felt underwhelming under direct sunlight. Efforts had to be made to view the screen clearly while outdoors. The dial size is apt for almost everyone’s wrists and the display navigation can be handled by the single crown on the right side of the watch or by tapping on the screen.
The display can be turned on by lifting your hand while wearing it. You just have to enable that option from the support app. The screen will automatically turn off within a few seconds of no activity to save battery life. Brightness can be adjusted from the brightness bar and easy notifications can be enabled along with some other features.
Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch Review: Performance & Health Features
One of the highlights of the Noise ColorFit Pro 4 is Bluetooth calling support. One can make and receive calls via the watch. There is a speaker and mic on the left side of the dial through which one can talk during the call. Bluetooth calling was smooth and the voice of the person at the other end was clearly audible in the indoor environment. The outdoor calling experience is not that seamless as there are noises around. Notifications can also be enabled so that one can reply to messages from the watch. The watch has a call log, dial pad and also an option to save 10 of your contacts to the device for quick dialling.
The watch caters to fitness and sports enthusiasts as well. It has over 100 sports modes that will be useful while one plays a certain sport. The sports modes include jogging, indoor sports, hiking, cycling, outdoor sports, and more. It can be accessed by navigating the screen of the watch and this mode provides details like distance, calories burnt, heart rate, etc, for outdoor activities. The watch doesn’t have a GPS which can be a problem when traveling. The step counter is not accurate and thus cannot be relied upon.
Health sensors like oxygen level, heart rate, and stress levels are also present which prove to be quite useful. The heart rate and oxygen levels were more or less accurate when compared with the readings of the actual devices, but sleep and stress monitoring figures can’t be judged for accuracy. There are features like breathing, tracking your steps, and more too. Heart rate is tracked 24×7 while wearing the watch and the device warns you if it goes too high or too low. Sleep tracking shows light and deep sleep, awake time, and REM sleep, and then I found its readings to be full of inaccuracies.
There are functions like silent mode, find the phone, DND, Power saver, and more settings. Pressing the crown shows noise health, noise buzz, clock, workouts, sports, reminders, watch faces, flashlight, and more.
Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch Review: App support & watch faces
The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch uses the Noise Fit companion app on Android and iPhone that stores the data once you register yourself on it. The details of all your activities are shown on the home screen along with step count, sleep data, heart rate, distance, stress count, and blood oxygen record. The shop tab shows Noise devices that one can purchase and the settings tab shows battery status and customization options.
The ColorFit Pro 4 comes with a huge variety of watch faces to choose from. There are abstract, digital, custom images, illustrations, chronograph watch faces to choose from. The settings tab has options like notification and alerts, Bluetooth calling, add contacts, heart rate monitoring, set drink water reminder, enable camera shutter, hand wash reminder, world clock, add stocks, and much more.
The watch comes with Bluetooth v5.3 version and is compatible with ios 11 and higher. In terms of android, it is compatible with Android 9 and plus versions. Noise Fit App is a must to pair the watch with your smartphone. The process of pairing is very simple and quick.
Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch Review: Battery
The Noise ColorFit Pro 4 smartwatch has a 300mAh battery that lasts very long. The battery lasts for 7-8 days once fully charged with moderate to heavy usage. The watch promises 30 days of standby battery life. I used the watch for straight 24 hours and the charging was reduced by a mere 8-10%. The watch took around 2 hours to get charged with the magnetic pin charger that comes inside the box. Since the battery life is so long, charging it once for 2 hours should not be a problem.
Noise ColorFit Pro 4 Watch Review Verdict: Should you buy it?
Noise ColorFit Pro 4 smartwatch is a budget wearable that comes with all smart features like Bluetooth calling, sports modes, camera shutter, long battery life, and more. The watch has a solid build and is convenient to wear for days at a stretch. The only niggles being an underwhelming display and inaccurate step counters, the watch can be a good companion for those who want a smartwatch under the 4k price range. The app has support for Google Fit, 24×7 heart rate tracking and 1000s of watch faces, which are a plus considering the price point of the product.
