Intex has announced the launch of its second fitness smart band – FitRist. The smart band is available exclusively from Snapdeal for just Rs 999. Last August, the Indian company had launched its first smartwatch, iRist, for Rs 11,999 but it is now available for Rs 9,999.
The new Intex FitRist comes with an OLED display that shows time as well and hence can be used as a smartwatch too. The FitRist is loaded with step monitoring, distance measurement, calorie count and monitoring of quality of sleep. FitRist is Bluetooth-enabled.
“Once it is synced with the smartphone, it displays all kinds of notifications including monitoring calls. The band helps the user control music track on the smart phone, thereby customizing the music experience. The band also helps in tracking the smart phone device,” Intex said in a press release.
The FitRist claims to offer up to 12 days battery back up. FitRist has a Remote Shutter feature that allows controlling the connected mobile phone’s camera from the band itself.
FitRist is water-resistant and splash proof to prevent from rains and accidental spills. The smartband comes in Dark Blue and White colour variants.
