Design

Naturally, from the first minutes of dating everythingattention to itself pulls the display. Compared with the usual fitness trackers, it is 1.5-2 times more, which means more informative! Brightness is enough to read information in normal conditions, but in sunny weather it seemed to me that it was not quite enough.

The display has a small frame and a main touch button. It is used to move through the bracelet menu items and activate functions.

The strap of the Smarterra FitMaster Pulsar is made ofhypoallergenic silicone, moderately hard, well fixes the tracker on the wrist. The clasp is reliable, but personally I don’t really like a similar fastening method since I’m used to taking a wearable gadget every night.

In general, the FitMaster Pulsar looksBrutal, definitely, this accessory was mainly created for men. A feeling of reliability, solidity, a kind of mini computer on your hand — amazing, I still can’t believe that we live in a time of technology that is accessible to everyone!

application

To work with a smartphone application is usedHPlus (Android, iOS). It is extremely simple, in it you can get current and archival information from the clock, change the interface and play with different settings. Personally, I rarely use the application and use it, rather, as a bridge between the clock and the smartphone to receive notifications, no more. But if you are a fan of digging into the data and familiarize yourself with daily workloads, activity, the application will not upset you.

For whom

Smarterra FitMaster Pulsar review will be logicalfinish on summing up by the hour. The bracelet will be relevant primarily to athletes and people who actively monitor their physical performance. To a greater extent, the device is sharpened by a man's hand, but I am sure that this is just my personal opinion and many girls will like the device.

Of the benefits, I note a large informative screen,High precision heart rate tracking sensor and pedometer. The error is minimal, which is rare for modern fitness trackers in the price range up to 3000 rubles. I also liked the ergonomics of the bracelet, it sits well on the arm, does not hinder movement. The device is really nice to use.

There are downsides (and how not to be for such a price,engineers always have to look for compromises), for example, I don’t really like the menu drawing (minimalism is in fashion, and here the developers offer GUI in skeomorphism). Also seemed an inconvenient way to move through the menu items, not enough touch control.
