Many users like smartwatches from well-known brands such as Apple or Amazfit. But we all know that the price tag for real smartwatches is quite large. Therefore, other manufacturers, for example, NO.1, offer a very interesting design of a fitness watch that reminds me of Apple’s flagship watch. Today’s review is a pretty attractive model of smartwatches called NO.1 DT35.
As you might have guessed, in appearance the DT35 is very similar to the Apple Watch or Amazfit GTS. But the big difference between these smartwatches is the price.
Currently, you can buy NO.1 DT35 at a low price of up to $20. This is almost 10 times less than the original version of the Apple Watch.
Of the technical features, the budget version of the fitness watch my surprise – it is a 1.54-inch color screen, IP67 waterproof, and also quite high battery life, thanks to the built-in 260 mAh battery.
Therefore, today I will share my impressions of the new inexpensive smartwatches and also tell you what they are better or worse than the original watches from Apple or Amazfit.
NO.1 DT35: Specifications
|Screen:||1.54 inch IPS screen with 240 by 240 pixels|
|Sensor:||Heart-rate monitor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer|
|IP standart:||IP67 waterproof|
|Standby time:||up to 6 days|

The fitness watch from NO.1 comes in a small white box. On the front side, you can see the pattern of the watch, which is very similar to the appearance of the Amazfit GTS, possibly due to the watch face.
The backside of the box received a list of technical specifications. Here you can see features such as a processor, battery, screen, and Bluetooth version.
Inside the box, I discovered first of all – this is the watch itself with a metal strap, a docking station for charging, and instructions for use.
I have long wanted to get a fitness watch with a metal strap. Also on the official website, you can order a watch with a silicone strap in black, gray, or blue.
Appearance NO.1 DT35 fitness watch certainly turned out to be quite interesting. Despite the fact that it strongly resembles the popular smartwatches from Apple Watch, the DT35 model does exist.
The watch case is made of matte black plastic, of course, this is not metal, but the build quality is quite high.
On the front side, there is a square screen with a size of 1.54 inches, which is covered with a protective glass from scratches. The screen received a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. As for budget and low-cost watches, the screen quality is not bad.
There is good brightness, which will provide good readability in sunny weather. The frames around the screen are small except for the bottom of the screen.
On the right side, there is a power button or move back.
The reverse side of the watch received magnetic connectors for charging and a heart rate sensor. In addition, on the lower right side, you can see the speaker hole and mic.
I was a little surprised by the presence of a speaker since most fitness watches do not have it. Well, this is a pretty nice bonus.
I also want to note that the strap is removable and you can change it at any time to any other if necessary. The width of the strap was 22 mm and, as I mentioned, it is made in two versions – it is silicone or metal. I have a black metal strap on my test, which looks very cool.
The dimensions of the watch were 49 x 36.3 x 12.4 mm, and weigh about 69 grams. In the hand, the NO.1 DT35 watch sits quite nicely, it is not heavy and its size is easily suitable not only for the male gender but also for the female.
Features and Application
After turning on the NO.1 DT35 smartwatch, I am greeted by a bright and saturated screen. On the main dial, you can find a lot of useful information, also the manufacturer has installed many additional watch faces. They can be installed separately through a mobile application, which I will talk about later.
If you swipe from top to bottom, we get to the quick settings menu. Here I see the day of the week, date, time, connection, battery level, and silent mode.
If you swipe from the bottom up we see the main menu with the main functions of a fitness watch. For example, there is a function to find phone, themes, QR code for installing the application on the smartphone, and settings. Also below are features such as a phone book, dialing, messages, sleep, music player, health.
In the last section, there are four types of different checks in your body condition. This is a heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen level in the blood, and an electrocardiogram.
In addition, there is a calculator, calendar, stopwatch, timer, and alarm clock.
In the settings, there are a large number of features. For example, Bluetooth connection, clock, notifications, sound, screen, and others.
It is easy to guess that the fitness watch received Bluetooth connectivity with your smartphone. Thus, you will not need to look for a phone throughout the apartment, as you can answer through NO.1 DT35. A handy feature and works well for a price of up to $20.

The first thing you need to do is install the application called Fundo Pro, which is available on both Android and iOS devices. After pairing, you will have access to all the functions of a fitness watch.
The main menu of the application displays the date, weather, battery level, calories, steps, and distance. Here you can analyze all statistics for the current day, but also for previous days.
Also in the application menu, you can analyze your health statistics, for example, heart rate or electrocardiogram. This application is very simple and easy to use, it did not cause any difficulties for me.
The NO.1 DT35 smartwatch is equipped with a 260 mAh battery, which guarantees up to 1 week of operation.
The battery life is really good, as for a budget fitness watch. But do not forget that the watch works thanks to dual processors – these are MTK2502 and BMA425. Due to this, the fitness watch will be able to work much longer than regular smartwatches on Android OS.
The charging time through the docking station will be about 2 hours.
