Zeblaze HYBRID – hybrid smart watch

Zeblaze HYBRID Smart Watch

Zeblaze HYBRID is a stylish hybrid smartwatch with hidden touchscreen and standard clock hands. Adhering to the style of German industrial design and incorporating an OLED screen in a retro fashion style, with Zeblaze HYBRID you feel like you have 2 watches at a time. Usually HYBRID means a combination of a standard (retro) watch with a modern smart watch. When you lift your wrist, the movement process will make the smart display show all the data. By touching the screen, you can control the screen as you wish, view daily activity data, and turn on sports mode.

The design of Zeblaze HYBRID is quite interesting. The combination of the retro style of the standard watch with the modern features of smart watches makes it quite attractive . The watch is available in 2 colors – blue and black, which gives the user a choice and the opportunity to combine it with different clothes.

As a quality of the assembly and the materials used, Zeblaze HYBRID is not inferior to the highest standards. The main part of the watch is made of plastic and mineral glass, but the lower part, where the sensors for measuring heart rate and blood pressure are located, is made of quality steel. The Zeblaze HYBRID strap is silicone and resistant to all weather conditions.

Zeblaze HYBRID offers many features for the price range in which it is located. It measures heart rate and blood pressure, which very few smart watches offer even today. Another interesting feature is the display of the outside temperature and the real-time forecast. With the Comfit app, you can monitor the phases of light and deep sleep. Again, through the app that connects to the phone’s GPS, you can find out the distance you’ve traveled, altitude and pace. You can receive notifications for calls, messages, and other applications, but without reading them. Zeblaze HYBRID is waterproof up to 50 meters / 5 ATM / 164. In intelligent mode, ie. using the functions of the smart watch, the battery lasts up to 7 days, and the standard watch is not affected by this battery. It has a separate battery that lasts up to 3 years.

Pro: Measures blood pressure
Pro: Many features
Pro: Low price
Con: The battery of the smart watch does not last long
Con: There is a problem with charging
Con: The application has bugs and is not functional

Overall, my personal impressions of the Zeblaze HYBRID smartwatch are good. For its price, it offers amazing features that even the highest class watches do not yet have. The quality of workmanship is also at a high level. The watch feels very stable and no gaps can be found in the quality of the assembly. The only negatives are in the direction of battery and charging. There is definitely a problem with either the charger or the way the battery is charged.

In general, Zeblaze HYBRID has a lot of features for its price, but the problems it has in general leave an unpleasant impression of its use. The big plus is the standard dial, which uses a separate battery and is not affected by charging the watch. A great relief is that you can always count on knowing what time it is even if you haven’t charged the watch. I can’t say exactly how much it measures heart rate and blood pressure, but overall the values ​​seem unrealistic. After nearly 2 years of use, I can say that the application that uses the watch is light years away from what other brands offer. There is no support for 24-hour heart rate or blood pressure monitoring. You can only measure it manually from the watch. In general, there are many lunch functions and almost nothing can be monitored or managed directly through the application. It only monitors the quality of sleep, but again with questionable values. The biggest problem of Zeblaze HYBRID is with the battery and its charging. There is some problem with the charger or the back of the watch which is all metal. Either it doesn’t make good contact or the battery itself has a problem, but it can almost never be 100% charged. I kept the watch for days on the charger and it still charges to 70-80%. It also matters how exactly you put the watch on the charger, although you shouldn’t, but alas … And since you can’t fully charge, Zeblaze HYBRID earns even less using the smart features. For the last few weeks, I haven’t even bothered to charge it. I only use the standard dial.
