Design & Build Quality

Fire-Boltt’s smartwatches are known for their creative design, and the Hercules model is no exception.

With a sleek and elegant appearance, this smartwatch features a crown button and microphone on one side, a speaker on the other, and a charging point and sensors on the back.

Fire-Boltt Hercules Design

Unfortunately, the crown button on this smartwatch is not functioning.

This means that you cannot use it to perform various tasks, but it can still be used to turn the smartwatch on and off, as well as go back to the previous screen.

In terms of build quality, the Fire-Boltt Hercules smartwatch features a metallic frame that provides durability and resilience in tough situations.

Additionally, the smartwatch comes with soft silicone straps that you can easily replace with any 22mm quick-release strap.

In short, the Fire-Boltt Hercules leaves no room for complaints regarding design and build quality.

Display & UI

In Fire-Boltt Hercules, you see a large 1.83-inch display, making it one of the best smartwatches with large displays.

It has a resolution of 240×286 px, which enhances the display’s quality and provides better color accuracy.

Fire-Boltt Hercules Display

The AMOLED display is not available in this budget segment, but if you want to have one, you can have a look at these top AMOLED display smartwatches.

Although the display’s brightness remains sufficient even in outdoor conditions, one thing that disappointed me a bit is that it has been given slightly thick bezels.

Let’s talk about the UI of Fire-Boltt Hercules.

Swiping down from the main screen brings up the control panel, swiping up reveals the notification panel, swiping left accesses the widgets, and swiping right opens the menu.

To sum up, the Fire-Boltt Hercules performs decently in terms of display and UI; only the thick bezels are a letdown.

Watch Faces

The Fire-Boltt Hercules comes with over 100 cloud-based watch faces that you can install via its companion app.

At the same time, it also has some built-in watch faces, which you can change by long tapping on the screen.

You can also customize the watch faces through its app, although there are not as many customization options as given in the boAt Wave Arcade smartwatch.

Bluetooth Calling & Notifications

Fire-Boltt Hercules is a calling smartwatch in which you get to see a built-in mic and speaker.

I have personally had positive experiences with the call quality on this smartwatch.

You can accept, reject, or control the volume when receiving calls.

During a call, you have the option to mute, transfer, or hang up.

Fire-Boltt Hercules Bluetooth Calling

Unfortunately, this watch does not have a quick reply feature for responding to notifications.

However, you can view all your notifications on the smartwatch’s notification panel.

Health Monitoring

Despite being a budget-friendly smartwatch, the Fire-Boltt Hercules offers a range of health monitoring features, including a heart rate monitor, spo2 monitor, sleep monitor, and blood pressure monitor.

Fire-Boltt Hercules Health Monitoring

In my experience, these health-tracking features have performed very well and provided valuable insights into my overall health and wellness.

Sports Modes

The Fire-Boltt Hercules smartwatch is a great choice for sports enthusiasts, with 120 sports modes available for tracking a wide range of activities.

It provides detailed tracking information, making it easy to monitor your fitness progress.

While the smartwatch is water resistant with an IP67 rating, it is unsuitable for swimming or other water sports.

In short, the Fire-Boltt Hercules has a lot of sports modes available, and if you are looking for a smartwatch for sports, you can try it.

Battery Life & Charging

The Fire-Boltt Hercules smartwatch has a fairly good battery life, lasting for about five days in typical usage.

However, using the Bluetooth calling feature can drain the battery more quickly, resulting in a lifespan of 1-2 days.

App Functionalities

To connect the Fire-Boltt Hercules smartwatch to your phone, you will need the Da Fit app, which is available on the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store.

For more details, you can see our step-by-step guide on how to pair the Fire-Boltt smartwatch to your phone.

The app provides a separate section for analyzing health and fitness data while also letting you customize the settings of the smartwatch.

Other Features

You get to see many features in Fire-Boltt Hercules.

Apart from basic features like reminders and alarms, it has a voice assistant, camera control, music control, games, and breathing exercises.

However, one missing feature is a calculator, which may be a drawback for students or anyone who needs to do calculations on the go.

Who Should Consider And Who Shouldn’t

The Fire-Boltt Hercules is a good choice if you want a smartwatch with a big display, solid build quality, and a wide range of sports modes.

However, if display quality and health accuracy are important to you, you may want to consider other options in this budget range, as countless alternatives are available.
