Fire-Boltt Phoenix Review
What’s in the Box
- User manual
- Magnetic charger
- Warranty card
Design & Build Quality
The first thing I noticed about the Fire-Boltt Phoenix smartwatch is its build quality.
This Fire-Boltt smartwatch comes with a metal build which I did not expect at all as we usually see plastic builds in this budget, but metal has been used: a big thumbs up to Fire-Boltt for this.
Talking about its design, it has a small round dial which will be very comfortable for those with small wrists.
On one side of the watch, we have been given a crown which acts as a button, while on the back side, all the basic sensors and a charging point have been given.
One thing I found a bit odd here is that the position of the speakers has been given very close to the straps, which means that the speakers’ sound will not be as clear after wearing the watch.
I think the speakers should have been placed on the side of the watch.
Let me know in the comments what do you think about this?
It also has silicone straps with swappable features that you can easily change with another.
In short, no complaints about the design and build quality considering the budget of the Fire-Boltt Phoenix; everything is excellent.

Display & UI
Let’s talk about the display.
The Fire-Boltt Phoenix smartwatch flaunts a 1.3-inch display with a resolution of 240×240 px.
The resolution is quite reasonable according to the display’s size, so we get to see better sharpness in the display.
The exciting thing is that we see curved glass on display here, which makes it more beautiful.
Let me tell you that the bezels in the watch are minimal; here, we will not get to see the bezels in most watch faces, which is a great thing.
On the other hand, talking about its UI, there is a very smooth user experience.
It’s been a few days using Fire-Boltt Phoenix, and so far, I haven’t felt any lag in it; of course, the UI is relatively smooth.
Let me now talk about swipe functionalities.
You can access the notification panel by swiping up on the watch, while the control panel can be accessed by swiping down.
Let me tell you that we will be able to get all social media, text messages and call notifications, but the reply option is not available.
On the other hand, talking about the control panel, options like connection status and battery status are seen in it, but apart from this, some toggle buttons are also given like:
- Battery saver
- Theater mode
- Vibration on/off
In addition, swiping left gives you access to all the shortcut cards like:
- Phone call
- AI voice assistant
- Health monitoring
- Weather report
- Shutter control
- Music player (with volume control)
- Breathe control
Here we do not get the option to add shortcut cards, but according to the budget, it is justified.
Apart from this, you can access the menu section of the watch by swiping right.
The exciting thing here is that it has two menu styles:
- Grid style
- List style
Both the menu styles look cool so you can choose from the settings.
The features given in the Menu section are as follows:
- AI voice
- heart rate
*Here in the tab of the settings, we get to see some more options so that you can customize the watch to a great extent:
- Menu view
- Call reset
- Power off
- QR code
So in this way, we will be able to use the Fire-Boltt Phoenix smartwatch with all these necessary options.
Talking about the brightness here, you can use it in indoor and outdoor conditions; the brightness level is quite good, so there will be no problem using it in daylight.

There are more than 100 watch faces in the Fire-Boltt Phoenix smartwatch, but the interesting thing is that these watch faces are pretty good, which gives an elegant look to the watch.
To change these, you can use the long tap on the home screen where you get to see some watch faces.
You can use the Da Fit app to access the rest of the watch faces as it has a vast watch faces library.
Since the Fire-Boltt Phoenix is a Bluetooth calling smartwatch, calling is its most vital feature.
In this, we get caller name, call receive/decline and the option to control volume when we receive calls, but there is no option to mute/unmute.
After receiving the call, the option of mute/unmute, call transfer and volume control is available.
I attended a lot of calls through this watch, and I can say that this watch performs very well in terms of calling.
The speakers are loud, but there is a slight decrease in the loudness due to the speaker’s position.
Along with this, we can sync the contacts of our smartphone with the watch through the app, which will allow us to make direct calls.
The Fire-Boltt Phoenix smartwatch supports smart notifications where we receive notifications from all social media apps, calls and text messages.
With the help of the Da Fit app, we can select all the apps from which we want to receive notifications which is an essential yet valuable feature; unfortunately, we do not get the option of a quick reply.
But the good thing is that we do not face any problems reading the notification.
This watch has heart rate tracking and spo2 monitoring, which are common in every smartwatch nowadays.
While using the Fire-Boltt Phoenix smartwatch, I found that its sensors work very well and provide close readings.
I also did testing with the help of medical equipment, and there was a difference of a few points in the final data.
But the good thing is that we get error shows on non-living things, which shows that the sensors are working very well.
In a nutshell, you can use this watch to get an idea about your heart rate and blood oxygen.
You can also consider the Fire-Boltt Phoenix smartwatch a good option for sports enthusiasts as it has 120 sports modes.
You can access all these sports modes by going to the training option in the Menu section.
I have tested some of these modes, and I would like to say that here we get a lot of detailed information.
You can take the help of the Da Fit app to get these pieces of information on your smartphone.
Apart from all these features in the Fire-Boltt Phoenix, there are many other valuable features like AI Voice Assistant.
The feature of AI voice assistant has also been given in the watch, with the help of which we can make a lot of tasks more accessible, whether to set the alarm or to call someone, you can complete it through voice commands.
In addition, this watch comes with IP68 water resistant rating that allows you to wear it in the rain or while swimming.
Who Should Consider
Now let’s talk about those people who should consider this watch.
Look, the Fire-Boltt Phoenix smartwatch doesn’t have any extraordinary features that should be considered, but if you want a budget-calling smartwatch with a round dial, this is the best option.
Apart from this, if you prefer a premium-looking metal build smartwatch, you can go for it.
Who Should Avoid
Some people should avoid it as there are better alternatives in some aspects.
I just want to say that if you have a reasonable budget, you should go for another smartwatch because it is only for the budget segment.
|Battery life||3 to 4 days|
|AI voice assistant||Yes|
|Music player with volume control||Yes|
What I Like/Dislike about Fire-Boltt Phoenix

- Good microphone
- Best for small wrist
- Multiple sports modes
- Beautiful watch faces
- Great touch response
- Speakers should have been given on the side
Fire-Boltt Phoenix Review: Bottom Line
If you have a low budget but want a smartwatch equipped with an excellent calling feature, the Fire-Boltt Phoenix is a good option.
It flaunts a 1.3-inch display with a 240×240 px resolution and a good quality display with a smooth UI.
Apart from this, it also has Bluetooth calling, an AI voice assistant and in-built games, which make it a feature-rich smartwatch.
In my opinion, for this price point, this is the best round dial Bluetooth calling smartwatch.
