LEMFO has been producing rather high-quality smartwatches for a long time, both on the Android operating system and the usual ones called fitness watches. Today on my test it’s a fitness watch with the name LEMFO SG2.
The main difference between a smartwatch with Android OS and a fitness watch is the battery life. Although for many users, the price will not be an unimportant factor, so LEMFO SG2 will cost you up to $50.
The price tag is almost half that of an Android smartwatch, but the basic functions and features remain the same. For example, these are various sports modes of training, tracking heart rate, blood pressure, sleep, steps, calories, and much more.
In addition, the new LEMFO fitness watch model received a bright 1.2 inch AMOLED screen, IP68 waterproof case, 230 mAh battery capacity, and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity.
In this review about the fitness watch LEMFO SG2 I will talk about the main functions, advantages, and disadvantages. I plan to start my test with unpacking, so let’s get started.
LEMFO SG2: Specifications
|Screen:||1.2 inch AMOLED screen with 390 by 390 pixels|
|Sensor:||Heart-rate monitor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer|
|IP standart:||IP68 waterproof|
|Standby time:||up to 10 days|
|Size:||41.3x 41.3 x 13 mm|
The device comes in a regular white square box, where on the front you can see a sketch of the watch and the SmartWatch designation.
Inside the box are the watch itself with a silicone strap and each element lies separately.
A little lower lay a charging dock and instructions for use, where you can find a QR code for installing the application.
It is also worth noting that the charging dock is rather unusual, it does not have the usual contacts and it charges like wireless charging on smartphones. Yes, a magnetic connection is used here and as for budget watches – this is an interesting feature.
If you look at the appearance of LEMFO SG2, then I get a very positive impression of the new fitness watch model. Indeed, the device is made of quality materials and build quality is up to par.
The entire watch case is made of glossy material, which looks very stylish and solid.
I would also like to note that the upper mineral protective glass has scratch protection with 2.5D rounding. In addition, the glass surface has an oleophobic coating, on which there are practically no fingerprints.
The main feature of LEMFO SG2 is a high-quality AMOLED screen with a size of 1.2 inches and a resolution of 390 x 390 pixels. Due to the small screen size and good resolution, the pixel density per inch was about 326 PPI.
The brightness of the screen is enough for quiet use in sunny weather, the same applies to color reproduction and viewing angles. I really liked the screen and if you want a bright and contrasting screen, then the SG2 watch model will be a good offer.
The case got a diameter of 42 mm, and a thickness of 13 mm, also the watch weighs about 49.3 grams. Undoubtedly, LEMFO SG2 looks very good on the wrist and they are not heavy and comfortable to wear. Although, sleeping in them will be problematic.
On the right side of the watch case, there are two buttons of different shapes – one round and the other oval. The upper oval button executes the back command, and the lower round button turns on or off.
The back of the watch has heart rate sensors and you can see the magnetic contact for wireless charging.
I would also like to note that LEMFO SG2 received protection against IP68 water. Therefore, you can swim in them in the pool, take a shower and much more. But I note that the maximum depth of immersion should not exceed 1.5 meters and no longer than 30 minutes.
The manufacturer offers three colors – it is black, white, and pink. You can also purchase an additional metal strap, but you will need to pay extra for it.
The standard strap is made of silicone material, which is very pleasant to the touch and has a thickness of 22 mm. Also, the strap itself is removable and at some point, you can replace it with any other.
The impeccable design will allow you to use the fitness watch not only during training but also in a business style.
Features and Settings app
The main dial on the LEMFO SG2 shows a large number of useful functions, such as time, date, steps, calories, distance, and more.
Each user will be able to choose any watch faces they like, as there are more than enough of them here. A little later I will tell you how to install other watch faces through the application on a mobile device.
If you swipe from top to bottom, we get to the quick settings menu. There is an icon of the connected device, brightness, a QR code for installing the application, and an indicator of the battery level.
If you swipe up from the main screen, you can see the weather section, which displays the current temperature, precipitation, and other readings.
If you swipe from left to right – we see the notification menu, and on the opposite side – steps, distance, and calories.
Also, if you swipe again, the sleep mode appears, again swipe you can see the section of heart rate, blood pressure, the oxygen level in the blood, and electrocardiography.
Next, after swipe right to the left, we see a menu of various training modes. In total, ten types are available – these are walking, running, swimming and others. I want to note that the modes have an interesting arrangement, each icon is located along the contour of the watch, and is not made in the form of a list.
Also, the LEMFO SG2 watch received a music player. A very useful feature, since you can control the music and adjust the volume on your smartphone through the watch on your wrist in your hand.
The last section includes various functions – it is to find the phone, alarm, stopwatch, timer, and much more.
Now let’s install the mobile application through the QR code, which can be found in the user manual. The application is called HPlusFit and it is available for both Android iOS devices.
After installing and pairing the watch with the application via the Bluetooth 5.1 wireless connection, you can analyze most of the functions that the LEMFO SG2 fitness watch has. On the main page of the application, you can see the steps are taken and the distance, analyze sleep and also see the results of electrocardiography.
A large number of different functions are available in the application settings, including setting watch faces, receiving notifications, and many other standard features.
Since this is not an Android smartwatch, but a fitness watch, a 240 mAh battery capacity will be enough. For example, if you use the watch in active mode, the battery life on a single charge will be from 5 to 10 days.
Also due to the AMOLED screen, the watch will be able to work an order of magnitude longer than regular IPS fitness watches.
As I mentioned, LEMFO SG2 has wireless charging via the docking station. It has a magnetic connection and there are no ordinary metal contacts, like other competitors. This feature is any connection angle and the full charge time will be about 1.5 hours.
Conclusion and Reviews
LEMFO SG2 is the next smart fitness watch that got a perfect design with quality materials. It uses a simple user interface that any user can understand.
The built-in functions and features such as those of most competitors, but not many watches boast the presence of electrocardiography. Of course, this is not professional medical equipment, but as for personal interests, this function will be useful.
I also liked the high-quality AMOLED screen with high resolution and good brightness. Also, the battery life on a single charge was about 1 week with active users and this is a solid indicator, as for such a large and bright screen.
Price and Where to buy cheaper?
For many users, the price is a decisive choice and I want to please some, as the price tag on LEMFO SG2 does not exceed $50. Yes, if you want an additional metal strap, then you need to pay $3 more.
For a small price, LEMFO fitness watches have the perfect combination of build quality and technical specs.
