Canmixs Smart Watch

Canmixs Smart Watch

Thank you Canmixs for sending us this product to review!

I’ve been using a Garmin Vivofit 2 for the past few years. I like the step counting and prodding to get moving when I’ve been sitting still for too long. The Vivofit 2 also monitors my sleep, calorie burning, and menstrual cycle through the accompanying Android app. The Canmixs Smart Watch can do all of that and more for under $50.

The app is downloaded through a QR code in the instruction manual. For what it’s worth, my phone still scanned as virus free after installing this unsigned app. In order to unlock menstrual/ovulation cycle tracking, you’ll have to specify your gender as female in the app.

The build quality is nice and the soft rubber wrist straps are comfortable with plenty of size settings. I did find the metal clasp a little uncomfortable as it pressed into my wrist when typing. The 60g weight is noticeable, but not uncomfortable. The proprietary USB magnetic charging cable works nicely, I’m not sure how easy it will be to replace so I hope it doesn’t get damaged or lost.

There are a few watch faces to choose from, so that’s nice. I like the 240x240px watch face; it’s bright and easy to read. The ability to get SMS, Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail notifications is nice. I’m not sure why, but the Bluetooth connection would often break and I had to reconnect it through the app multiple times a day. The ability to remotely snap a picture is nice.

An option to disable the vibrating or enabling a "Do Not Disturb" mode would be nice for uninterrupted sleep. Sure, you can charge it at night, but then it wouldn't monitor your quality of sleep.

The IP67 waterproof rating is a bit contradictory on the Amazon product page. The IP67 rating states that the device can be dropped into a meter of water for up to thirty minutes. There’s a picture of a man in a pool wearing the watch with a disclaimer saying “Note: Never let it contact with water.” I have showered while wearing the watch and it still works.

I noticed some discrepancies with the step counting, heart rate tracking, and blood pressure monitoring. When I went for a walk with the Canmixs on my left wrist and the Vivofit 2 on my right wrist the step count of the Canmixs was 695 steps higher than the Vivofit 2. After doing a Ring Fit Adventure workout, my Switch Joy-Con said my heart rate was 91 while the watch said it was only 76. Given that the measurement was taken right after a workout, I would believe the Joy-Con measurement. For measuring my blood pressure I’m going to have to trust the reading of our Omron device which read at 110/56 compared to the watch’s reading of 138/92. My blood pressure has always been on the lower side.

In the end, it’s a nice watch for the price, but I’d take the measurements with a grain of salt.

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
