Design & Display
The Virmee VT3 plus comes equipped with a 1.5-inch touch screen display with a resolution of 360 by 320. The display looks amazing & the colors have some good contrast to it, making it clear & readable. By swiping up on the screen, you can adjust the brightness to your preference. With full brightness, the screen looks bright enough to be visible in daylight.
The design of this smartwatch is inspired by the Apple Watch. Nowadays, most of the companies prefer to design the Apple Watch’s lookalike. Must say, the Virmee VT3 plus looks pretty much exact. Along with that, they have added a red ring on the right to impersonate the look of an Apple watch.
The Silicone band which comes included is soft & has a great design to it, doesn’t feel cheap in any way. Also, the bands are replaceable. So you can easily detach & replace them with any 20mm watch band.
There is not much color option available. It only comes with the BLACK variant that looks premium on the wrist.
Fitness, Health & Activity Tracking
In case you are looking for a smartwatch that can be your fitness companion, then the Virmee VT3 plus will be a perfect fit. As this smartwatch serves as a fitness tracker, you will find it indeed helpful in your workouts. Below are the fitness, health & activity-tracking features this buddy offers:
Sports Modes: You get 18 different sports modes including running, walking, swimming (open & pool water), cycling, basketball, dancing, yoga, rope skipping, sit-ups, ice skating, aerobics, soccer, badminton, volleyball, tennis, climbing, and table tennis. By using these modes, get your exercise data synced in realtime.
Heart Rate & Blood Oxygen: Heart rate monitoring is an essential feature. Sometimes you may want to check your heart rate or want to check whether you are pushing hard enough or not. For this, heart rate monitoring comes in handy to make adjustments to your lifestyle. The special sensors help in getting accurate readings. It shows the highest & lowest heart rate reading throughout the day.
Another most useful one is Blood Oxygen Metering. This is helpful to monitor whether you have any respiratory conditions by checking the SpO2 level. I think it is nice to have Blood Oxygen Metering, keeping the COVID situation in mind.
Stress Monitoring: Do you have a stressful work schedule? The stress monitoring feature tracks stress status data & syncs it so that later you can take necessary actions.
Sleep Tracking: You can improve your sleep by tracking various stages of sleep, such as awake time, light, deep, and REM sleep. It supports automatic sleep tracking, so you don’t have to manually set it up.
Wellness Data: Like every smartwatch, you can track your steps, distance covered, stand time, and calories burned.
