Zeblaze makes really good smart sports devices. We have already considered models such as the Zeblaze Vibe 5 and Zeblaze Vibe 3 Pro, but today I want to talk about a new watch called Zeblaze NEO in our review.
In this article, I will talk about my experience with usage, appearance, functions, and more, so if you’re interested, read more below.
Zeblaze NEO is priced at around $50 and is an attractive offer for its features.
What does the new NEO model offer? A large 1.3-inch screen with an IPS matrix, a slim case, protection against water under the IP67 standard, 180 mAh battery capacity and much more, so I suggest starting our detailed review of smart fitness watches.

Zeblaze NEO: Unboxing
After reviewing Zeblaze watches, I was not surprised that the design of the box is made in the same soul as their brothers.
A square dark box, on the front of the watch is painted and the name of the model.
Inside the box – the watch is neatly lying, and under the bottom cardboard protective box – a charging two-pin magnetic cable and instructions in English.
Well, the equipment is no different from its predecessors, and how much for the price of $ 50 you do not need to expect.
Zeblaze NEO: Design
The appearance of smart fitness watches looks prestigious and at first glance, it is difficult to call them sports. Zeblaze NEO in our test is suitable not only for sports but also for business meetings.
The case of the NEO model is made of metal alloy, everything was perfectly assembled to the touch and I did not notice extraneous creaks. Also, the gaps in their places – in a word, the build quality is up to the mark.
On the right side is one power button or back. It has good responsiveness and I did not find any problems during the test.
On the front side, there is a large 1.3-inch touch color IPS screen with a resolution of 240 by 240 pixels. The screen quality is good, viewing angles are not bad, and even the brightness is enough, but in bright sunlight, small numbers are difficult to notice. Touch control works quickly and without delay.
On the back of the watch are a heart rate sensor and a two-pin charging connector. As can be seen from the photos, the back panel is no metal but made of plastic.
Let’s talk about dimensions and weight, Zeblaze NEO has 230 x 22 x 12 mm dimensions and 56 grams of weight. Compared with other competitors, I can definitely say that NEO is surprisingly thin only 12 mm and the weight is not felt even on the wrist of your hand.
The strap is hybrid, as it has rubber material on the inside and the leatherette on the outside. It is also important that the strap on the NEO is removable, so over time, you can replace it with any other with dimensions of 22 mm.
In the hands of the Zeblaze NEO fitness watch, it sits well and with prolonged wear, I did not have a feeling of discomfort.
Zeblaze NEO: Features
Based on the name that this is a fitness smartwatch, you should not expect Wifi and SIM support in Zeblaze NEO. But you will have a Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connection to pair with your mobile device.
Other features and functions of the watch are no different from fitness bracelets, for example, Xiaomi Mi Band 4 or others.
Now more about the features on Zeblaze NEO. On the main screen, you can see – time, heart rate, steps, and calories.
If you turn left from the main screen, you will see the steps section, which shows how many steps have been completed, distance and calories.
The next section is the quality of sleep, where you can analyze how you slept that night, that is, how much time is in a light and deep sleep.
Collapse again you will see basic functions such as sports, find the phone, heart rate, blood pressure, stopwatch, timer, information, and settings.
If you compare the heart rate results on Zeblaze NEO and Samsung Galaxy Watch 2, then both models have 74 beats per second. It is worth noting that the first model costs only $50, and Samsung – $300.
The result of blood pressure on the NEO model was 117 at 78 and it is indicated below that this is a normal condition.
Like other models from Zeblaze, you can pair with the application for both Android and iOS devices. The name of the application is H Band, which can be downloaded via the QR code or through the Play Store or App Store.
On the main page of the application, you can see the steps taken, sleep quality and heart rate.
In the application settings, you can which notification will come to you for hours and much more.
Another interesting feature in the settings menu is the inclusion of the screen when turning your hand. You can configure this function from what time it will work and set the response sensitivity.
Other features of the application settings menu are similar to those of Mi Fit or another application.
Zeblaze NEO: Battery
Zeblaze NEO smart fitness watches are not fully smartwatches and have a minimal operating system, so energy consumption will not be significant.
The watch has a battery with a capacity of 180 mAh and you can last it with active use for 5 days. Not a bad result, as for a large IPS touch screen and wireless Bluetooth 4.0.
Zeblaze will charge for about 2 hours via a magnetic two-pin connection.
Zeblaze NEO: Conclusions and Reviews
Another new product from Zeblaze introduced the ideal device for everyday use, but also for sports.
On Zeblaze NEO you can track your health status, namely heart rate, blood pressure, steps, and distance.
Appearance and design look no worse than the Galaxy Watch 2 and other competitors. Also, the watch sits well on the hand and when I was wearing it was discomfort.
Naturally, the watch does not have GPS, Wi-Fi or NFC, since the price of the device is affordable.
Zeblaze NEO: Price and where to buy cheaper?
Now the price of Zeblaze NEO is only $44.25 and you can buy a watch with a good discount of about 29%.
Zeblaze company once again demonstrates to us its professionalism and fitness smartwatches NEO show themselves on the positive side, both in terms of build quality and performance.
