Design & Build Quality

The Fire-Boltt Rise comes with an attractive and premium design.

In this, you get to see the glossy finish, and this is what I found very attractive; in fact, it gives the feel of a premium smartwatch.

It features a crown button and function buttons on the side, which allow you to control the smartwatch.

On the other hand, its backside houses the charging point and various sensors.

Fire-Boltt Rise Design Overview

The most interesting thing I found about it is that the smartwatch comes with a metallic frame that provides solid build quality.

Due to this, the smartwatch’s weight is around 50 grams, which is not relatively that much.

At the same time, it also comes with soft silicone straps that you can replace with any other quick-release strap.

Plus, the smartwatch’s overall size is slightly bigger, making it one of the best smartwatches for big wrists.

To sum up, the Fire-Boltt Rise comes out great in terms of design and build quality and is perfect if you prefer premium build quality.

Display & UI

In Fire-Boltt Rise, you see a large 1.85-inch display with a resolution of 240×280 px.

Fire-Boltt Rise Display

I have no complaints about the quality of the display, nor will you have any problem using it outdoors, although its wake gesture is a bit slow, which irritates somewhere.

One thing I really liked about its display is that it comes with thin bezels, which greatly enhances the overall look of the smartwatch.

On the other hand, if we talk about its UI, the notification panel opens on swiping up while the control panel opens on swiping down.

Along with this, you have to swipe right to go to the menu and swipe left to access widgets.

One thing I found very epic in this is that it provides eight different UI themes, which allow you to set different menu styles.

In short, the Fire-Boltt Rise sports a good display that provides a decent UI experience.

Watch Faces

Like all Fire-Boltt smartwatches, you also get to see more than 100 cloud-based watch faces in this, which you can customize with the help of its companion app.

But in this, you get to see the working crown button, which allows you to change watch faces on the go.

Bluetooth Calling & Notifications

The Fire-Boltt Rise is a BT calling smartwatch with a built-in mic and speaker.

This ensures that you get the best calling experience.

One of the standout features of the Fire-Boltt Rise smartwatch is its ability to transfer calls, a feature that is not commonly found in other smartwatches.

It is something that I appreciated about it.

Regarding notifications, the Fire-Boltt Rise smartwatch offers alerts for all social media apps and SMS but does not allow for replies.

Health Monitoring

The Fire-Boltt Rise smartwatch offers a range of health monitoring features, including a blood pressure monitor, stress monitor, heart rate monitor, spo2 monitor, and sleep, quality monitor.

Fire-Boltt Rise Health Monitoring

These health monitoring features work with decent accuracy, and the Fire-Boltt Rise smartwatch also includes support for female health care, making it suitable for women.

In addition, here are the best smartwatches for women that you may want to consider.

Sports Modes

In Fire-Boltt Rise, you see about 123 sports modes which you can access directly from the smartwatch.

Fire-Boltt has been incorporating more sports modes in its smartwatches, as we saw in the Fire-Boltt Tank and Fire-Boltt Epic Plus.

This trend continues with the Fire-Boltt Rise smartwatch.

However, you get to see IP67 water resistance, which cannot provide that much water resistance to the smartwatch.

Here is a list of the best water resistant smartwatches if you want to consider them.

Battery Life & Charging

In terms of battery backup, Fire-Boltt Rise performs decently.

In fact, in typical usage, it lasts for about five days, while it can provide a battery life of 1 to 2 days when you use its Bluetooth calling feature.

These tips will help you extend the life of your smartwatch’s battery.

Additionally, it does not support fast charging and takes around 2 hours to charge.

App Functionalities

To connect the Fire-Boltt Rise to a phone, you need to download the Da Fit app, which is available on the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store.

For more details, you can check out my step-by-step guide on how to pair a Fire-Boltt smartwatch to phone.

The Da Fit app has an easy-to-use interface where you can analyze all the health and fitness data.

Other Features

Apart from these, some other features in Fire-Boltt Rise prove to be useful.

This smartwatch has features like built-in games, a calculator, weather report, a voice assistant, smart notification, camera control, and music control.

While one feature I found quite interesting is that it gives you the option to save the QR code, which makes it easier for you to receive payments.

Who Should Consider And Who Shouldn’t

If you have a low budget and want a calling smartwatch, then Fire-Boltt Rise is a good option.

There are countless options available in this price range, but if you are looking for a newer model, this will be a good choice.

On the other hand, if you have a good budget, I suggest you go for better options with premium features.
