Chinese smartwatch brand North Edge has launched its latest device, the Range 5, with an integrated GPS module and touchscreen. The smartwatch has a round shape and equipped with several features including a heart rate monitor, Thermometer, GPS, 5ATM waterproof, and more. So let jump to the full details!
The Range 5 brings numerous features that are not common in cheap smartwatches. Many inexpensive wearables from the Far East are equipped with a sensor for monitoring the heart rate, but a GPS module and, in particular, not just an IP68 certification, is at least not to be expected together.
The watch body is made out of metal and stainless steel while the strap is available in silicone. The EDGE Range 5 watch has a 1.2nch Large TFT touch screen created with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. In addition, there are three buttons on the right side – the design of which is strongly reminiscent of Garmin smartwatches. This wearable is also packed with a variety of watch faces and available in black color.
The model is equipped with an NRF52840 chip and can communicate with a compatible Android or iOS smartphone via Bluetooth 5.1. The recording of running units, for example, should be possible with high accuracy even without a smartwatch thanks to the built-in GPS, GLONASS, and BEIDOU modules. You can track the distance covered, the routes you take, and your location.
Additional Features include a Thermometer, Multisports modes, Call or messages reminder, App notification, Alarm, Calendar, Sedentary reminder, Barometric Pressure, Altitude, Compass, and more.
According to the manufacturer, the Range 5 is waterproof up to a pressure of 5 ATM, but the manufacturer does not recommend using it while swimming. As usual, the smartwatch can also display incoming notifications on a smartphone, but it can also be used as a stopwatch. The 320 mAh battery should last around seven days with normal use and 10 days in standby.
Range 5 can be pre-ordered from Asia at a price of less than 85 euros, as usual, import duties to be paid by the buyer may apply.
