Music now before i tell you about all the features of the helix smart 2.0 lets first address the price, so this is the box in which the smartphone comes in turning it around. The list price is mentioned at 5599 rupees. However, this watch usually sells for around 4000 rupees online. Now, at the time of recording this video, i saw that this watch was retailing for an even lower starting price of 2999 rupees, both on amazon and the companys website. So before making the purchase make sure that you double check for deals and offers, i mean you never know you might get even something better than this anyway moving on. So this is how the helix smart 2.0 looks like it comes in this matte polycarbonate casing looks and feels good on the wrist, no complaints there theres a side button that lets you turn the screen on or off and theres also a raise to wake functionality which Works decently. Well, aside from that, the straps are made of silicon and are removable as well, which is good, but they do gather dust very easily, which is quite annoying at the back is where you can find the health sensors and the magnetic pins for the proprietary charger.
It is also mentioned that this watch is ip68 waterproof, as for charging times it takes about two and a half hours for the watch to fully top up now coming to the front. This is a large 1.55 inch, color display 2.5 d curved, although im not sure, if theres any protection up top or not – and it looks okay when it comes to the color reproduction as well. The bezels are also fine, i wont call them huge or tiny. I mean they are okay for the price, however, brightness levels could have been better, also theres, no auto brightness and im, also guessing theres, no oleophobic coating, because the screen does get smudged pretty easily. Moving on to pair this watch with your phone youll need to install the helix app from timex, which is available for both android and ios platforms. Open the app – and you see your fitness data on the home page on to the watch itself. A swipe down from the home screen shows a few essential toggles. A swipe from the right corner shows your heart rate data, keep swiping to the left to see your notifications and schedule if any. Finally, a swipe to the top takes you to the menu, which is pretty bare bones in comparison to some of its competitors. Touch operation was also just fine on this watch. As for the features, apart from the usual heart rate, tracking step tracking or even sleep tracking, the helix 2.
0 can also measure your body temperature, something that even the popular redmi watch or even the newly launched realme watch 2 cant do, and you can set this to Auto monitoring through the app and you can even turn on auto monitoring for the heart rate as well. You also get sedentary reminders that you can set via the app the helix 2.0. Also shows you app notifications, although you can just see them and not interact with them now i would have loved to see sp2 monitoring on the smartwatch, but unfortunately the feature is not present here. By the way, the app also offers telemedicine that lets you book an online consultation, save your medical records and keep track of your health regularly, a good addition, keeping in mind the times we are living in in terms of sports modes and activities. Its pretty bare bones guys youre only getting about 10 of them, which is fine, but definitely theres a need for more here, keeping in mind the competition even the watch faces for that matter. There are only 20 of them, which, i think is very little. Other inbuilt features include a remote camera button for clicking photos, a stopwatch, a timer and a find my phone option, which only works when your phones connected and its bluetooth is in range with the watch. Finally, in terms of battery life, now timex claims up to nine days on a single charge and, according to my usage patterns, that is, with the notifications, turned on brightness set to max auto health monitoring daily alarms, a lift wrist to view with all these settings turned On i was easily getting seven to eight days of endurance, and this is, after a month of testing and yeah thats, pretty much it.
I would say for about 3000 rupees, the helix smart 2.0 is an okay smartwatch. It looks good comes with traditional smartwatch features such as basic sports mode and activities, heart rate tracking and sleep tracking, and not to forget. It can also measure your body temperature battery life is also decent and, overall, as i said, it is an okay product. But since there is such fierce competition in the smartwatch segment that if the current retail price of 3000 rupees goes anything beyond, then this one is going to face a stiff competition from the likes of the redmi watch that currently retails for about 4000 rupees or even Then recently launched a real me watch 2, which retails for about 3 500 rupees, and that was my review of the timex helix smart 2.0.
