In this blog, I am going to review the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz which is a budget Bluetooth calling smartwatch.
I have already reviewed some other calling smartwatches on this site like:
And today we will talk about the Noise’s brand new Bluetooth calling smartwatch ColorFit Pulse Buzz.
I have been using this watch for the last several days and I have found some of its features very interesting due to which it can be one of the best calling smartwatches in this segment.
This watch is available in the budget range of under 3000 and comes in 5 different colors (Jet Black, Champagne Grey, Electric Blue, Olive Green, and Rose Pink).
Also, I would like to tell you that this is the similar one of Noise’s other smartwatch Noise ColorFit Pulse Grand, meaning we get to see similar features in both these smartwatches.
But here is one feature that differentiates between the two which is Bluetooth calling.
Apart from this, there are many more calling smartwatches available in the market in this budget which are directly giving competition to the ColorFit Pulse Buzz.
By the end of this blog, we will conclude whether Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz is ahead of its competitors or not.
So let’s start the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz review.

What’s in the Box
- Charging cable
- User manual
- Warranty card
Design & Build Quality
Let’s talk about the design and build quality first.
The design of this smartwatch is very similar to the Noise ColorFit Pulse Grand along with the same dial.
The only difference is that in this we also get to see a mic and speakers so that we can enjoy its calling feature.
Apart from this, we have been given a crown button with the help of which all the features of the watch can be accessed.
On the back side of the watch, we have been given HR, spO2, and accelerometer sensors which are used to monitor our health and daily activities.
In addition, the charging point is also given here.
Let me tell you that this Noise smartwatch comes with a magnetic charging cable.
The watch is completely made of plastic but the cheap type feel will not come at all as good quality plastic has been used.
And due to this, its total weight remains only 45 grams, so there is no problem in wearing it while sleeping.
I’m a little disappointed with the straps though.
That’s because the straps are a bit hard and not so soft and also the hooks are given in the plastic build which I was not expecting at all.
Here we definitely expect metal hooks as they are more reliable and durable.
In short, I liked the design and build quality of the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch, except for the straps.

Display & UI
Now let’s talk about the display and user interface of the watch.
Let me tell you that this watch has a 1.69-inch TFT LCD which comes in curved glass.
Here we get to see a resolution of 240×280px which provides decent quality to the display and the display looks sharp.
Nothing was mentioned about its brightness on the website but I feel it is a bit low.
If you use it indoors then there will be no problem but if you use it in the outdoor condition in daylight it may be difficult to access and you may have to resort to shade.
The display is of course quite big and comes with a flat edge dial which provides a good look with the curved glass.
Along with this, let me tell you that I liked its touch response too.
I did read reviews of some users complaining about poor touch response but my experience with this watch was very good so far.
So I don’t have any complaints regarding the touch response.
Let us now also know about the swipe functionalities of the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch.
Swiping down on the home screen of the smartwatch opens the notification panel where text and call notifications can be accessed.
Here we also get notifications from many social media apps.
Apart from this, if swiped up then its control panel can be accessed where some toggle buttons are seen like:
- Battery saver
- Find phone
- DND (do not disturb mode)
- Call enable/disable
Let me tell you here that after accessing the toggle button of the settings, we get permission to use the rest of the options of the watch like:
- Call settings
- Wrist awake
- Device information
- QR code
- Power off
Let me tell you that the setting can also be accessed by going to the menu view by pressing the crown button.
And finally, swiping left or right opens shortcut cards with health monitoring options and a music player.
The crown button is very important in Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz Smartwatch as it allows us to access all the features of the watch like:
- Noise health
- Noise buzz
- Sports records
- Watch faces
So these were some of the features of this watch which we can access by pressing the crown button.
I like the menu style of Noise smartwatches as it is very easy to access.
What do you think about this? Share your thoughts in the comments.
Before telling you about the calling feature, let me tell you about its health-tracking features.
Shortcut cards can be used to monitor heart rate or spo2 or you can also do testing by going to the menu.
Dedicated sensors have been given in the smartwatch for both, which do a lot of accurate monitoring.
As usual, there is a difference of a few points which is not a big deal.
First of all, let me tell you that to access the calling feature, you have to enable the calling feature by going to the control panel, which I already told you about in the section of the display (calls enable/disable).
When we are receiving calls, the option to call receive/decline and mute has been given.
After receiving the call, we have the options to call mute/unmute, call transfer, volume increase/decrease, and decline.
Since it also has speakers, the smartwatch not only vibrates but also plays ringtones when we are getting calls.
However, you can customize it through call settings.
i) Call Settings
To access the call settings, you have to access the settings option by pressing the crown button or by the control panel.
Here we get to see the call settings at the top, in which some useful options will be seen:
- Ring tone
- Incoming call
- Ringtone volume
Through these options, we can control the ringtone of the watch and its volume.
ii) Other Calling Features
Some more calling features have been given in the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch, which can be accessed through the Noise buzz option by going to the menu.
Here you can see the following options:
- Recent calls
- Dial pad
The best thing here is that this time we are allowed to save up to 100 contacts which is a really useful feature.
You can save all the contacts through its compatible app.
iii) Mic & Speaker Test
The quality of the mic in this watch is decent.
Keep in mind that this is a budget segment smartwatch from which we cannot expect premium quality.
When I tested the calling feature with this, the person on the other end was able to hear my voice clearly and his voice was coming to me better through the speaker.
But it can be successful only indoors.
I am saying that if you use its calling feature in outdoor conditions then you will get a useless experience.
In short, the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch is great for indoor conditions and a quiet space.
The Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch proves to be very effective for sports lovers too.
Like the ColorFit Pulse Grand, we have got a total of 60 sports modes in this too, to use this you have to go to the menu and select the workouts option.
Let me tell you that here we get to see all the modes category-wise whereby selecting the category and allowing access to the sports modes associated with it.
Although I did not test all the modes, the data of all the modes used were fairly accurate which is a good thing.
So yes, I recommend the ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch for sports lovers as well.
Now on to my favorite section – watch faces.
Here’s the deal.
The Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch has more than 150 watch faces, despite having calling and sports modes.
This is definitely one of the most amazing features of this watch.
But the interesting thing is that I found in the watch faces library this watch to be the best among all the watch faces so far.
There are many different watch faces to be seen here which will surely leave you stunned.
To change the watch faces, you simply hold the home screen for a while, then they will be allowed to change.
However, here we can only change a few watch faces.
For the complete library, you have to go to the app.
You can read the App Support section to know about it.
After talking about all the features, let us now also talk about the app with the help of which we can connect the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch with our smartphone.
This time Noise has changed the compatible app of this smartwatch, now here you have to install the NoiseFit Prime app which is a brand new app.
As soon as you boot the smartwatch for the first time, you will get to see a QR code that can be scanned and downloaded to this app.
To connect, simply open the app, where the name of the smartwatch will be seen, on clicking on which it will connect to the smartphone.
Here we get to see a lot of options.
First of all, we get to see all the health monitoring options, and data can be accessed from here.
Here I found the best option of the device which has many features which are as follows:
- Address book
- Watch faces
- Heart rate
- Blood oxygen monitoring
- Sedentary reminder
- SMS notifications
- Call notifications
- App notifications
- Alarm clock
- Wrist awake
- Meeting reminder
- Drinking reminder
- Hand-wash reminder
- World clock
- Firmware upgrade
- Factory reset
And in this way, we can customize the smartwatch to a great extent with the help of this app.
I found this app very useful.
What do you think about this? Do let me know in the comments.
The company has claimed 7 days of battery life for the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch, which can only be achieved if we use it sparingly.
In normal use in which we are doing calling and health tracking too, its battery will last for 4 to 5 days.
But if you use it a lot, then only about 3 days of the battery will be available.
A magnetic charger has been given to charge it, due to which it takes about two and a half hours to charge.
Here we do not get to see fast charging support.
The dial of the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz is not too big and the good thing is that it is quite light in weight, due to which wearing it at night does not cause any difficulty in sleeping.
I had no problem wearing it.
For a long time I have been sleeping wearing this continuously but I did not feel uncomfortable at all.
Hence, this smartwatch is much better in terms of comfort.
Apart from all these features, the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch also comes with some more basic features which can prove to be useful in many ways.
This watch comes with a camera and music control, with the help of which the camera and music player of the smartphone can be controlled.
This is a useful feature for some people.
Also, in this, we get to see many different reminders and reminders like walk and drinking water are very useful features for me which I use continuously in my daily life.
Let me tell you that this smartwatch comes with an IP68 waterproof rating so that we can wear it in the swimming pool as well.
I’ve seen several reviewers saying it can be worn while swimming but don’t do it at all.
Wearing it while swimming can spoil it because in swimming we stay underwater for a long time and it does not provide such good protection.
In short, I liked all the features of the Noise ColorFit Pulse Buzz smartwatch.
Who Should Consider
After knowing all the features and options, now you must have understood for which type of people this smartwatch is.
But if there is still confusion, then I will clear it.
First, if you want to buy a calling smartwatch but on a budget of 3000 then you can consider it.
Although you will get more options in this budget range, of course, it is also a good option.
Second, if health monitoring and sports modes are important to you, it should be considered.
Third, if you want stylish watch faces along with the calling feature in your smartwatch, there is no better option than this.
And fourth, if you prefer a light and flat edge design, then go for it.
Who Should Avoid
Now some people should keep some distance from this watch because it does not prove useful for them.
For instance, if the calling feature is not necessary for you, you should stay away from it because due to this feature you may have to compromise on other features.
Instead, you can go for boAt Xtend.
But if you want a smartwatch with a slim design and metal build then boAt Wave Lite is also a good option.

In this, we get stylish watch faces and 60 sports modes which probably no other calling smartwatch offers.
So I highly recommend it.
You can feel free to go for it.
