DESIGN AND DISPLAY
We’ve already mentioned that the Nubia Watch has an interesting display. It’s a 4.01-inch AMOLED panel with a 960 x 192 resolution. The display shows colors well, and while you won’t exactly be watching Netflix on your wrist, it makes colorful menus look even more vibrant.
Performance and software
The Nubia Watch uses Nubia’s own smartwatch software, and it’s basically the same as it was in the Nubia Alpha, but without the numerous bugs that made that device a pain to use.
The Nubia Watch has four fitness tracking modes: Outdoor Running, Indoor Running, Outdoor Walking, and Free Workout. Each tracks distance, time and calories burnt – the former is done via your phone’s GPS connection.
That’s not a huge range of workout modes or stats tracked, although for an average smartwatch user who just runs now and again, or wants to be a bit more active, it may be enough. In our testing most of the metrics seemed accurate except distance – after our 6.1km running course (that we use as a standard test of distance accuracy) the watch thought we’d gone 3.5k, suggesting it has errors in how it computes distance. A few hundred meters discrepancy would be understandable, but not multiple kilometers.
