Black Shark, a gamer-centric Xiaomi subsidiary, has just launched an unexpected product — a smartwatch! The new Black Shark product is named the S1 Smart Watch and it looks like a pretty standard smartwatch for the most part. Let’s discuss the Black Shark S1 smartwatch further in this article, including its expected price in Nepal, specifications, features and more!
Black Shark S1 Smartwatch Overview
Design and Display
The design of the Black Shark S1 smartwatch looks pretty standard with a circular dial that features an “exquisite metal bezel”. The case has a small opening on the left owing to the microphone. On the right, the watch features a crown and a button. It only comes in a black colour option and secures an IP68 dust and water rating.
Up on front, the Black Shark S1 flaunts a 1.43” AMOLED display coupled with slight curves at the edges. It boasts a resolution of 466 x 466 pixels, all while achieving a peak brightness of 600 nits and a refresh rate of 60 Hertz.
Features and Battery
This watch offers pretty standard smartwatch features like 100+ watch faces and built-in sports mode for you to enjoy and utilise. In terms of health features, it gives you with 24 hours heart rate and blood oxygen levels monitoring. It also has sleep-tracking features as well as menstrual cycle tracking, which is always a valuable addition.
What’s more, is that the Black Shark S1 comes with a Bluetooth calling feature that is assisted with an ENC algorithm and signal processing microphone. As a result, you get a “one-of-a-kind hands-free experience”. With the custom Shark Wear App, you can share your fitness reports or GPS coordinates. There are a handful of other features like camera control, stocks, message notifications, etc. that this watch offers you along with 10 days of battery life.
What’s there for Gamers?
Given it is a Black Shark offering, it only makes sense to have a dedicated gamers’ section! Firstly, it has a default Black Shark watch face with green and black accents giving it the gamer vibe. Other than that, it doesn’t have anything gamer-like going on design-wise, unlike its smartphone contemporaries.
Another “gamer” feature the company is pushing with this watch is that it monitors your heart rate during gaming sessions. With this, the company hopes that you find the perfect balance between playtime and downtime, and maintain a healthy sleeping habit.
