RunIQ Fitness Track by New Balance Released



This new fitness track watch runs Android Wear 2.0, which is Google’s latest OS for smartwatches. Unfortunately, the new New Balance RunIQ is big and uncomfortable.

As we know, New Balance, is a famous sneaker company. But, it seems that this company also decided to go on the fitness watch market. The new RunIQ is a GPS sports watch that comes packed with all the features that athletes need for their workouts. The New Balance RunIQ is available at the price of 299 US dollars, which is a really decent price. But, the thing is that this new smartwatch is really big.

As for the good part, customers should know that this device has tight integration with Strava. We are talking about a very popular app that is used for tracking runs and bicycle rides.

On the paper, this new GPS watch looks pretty well and it can be recommended as a fitness tracker or smartwatch. But, when it comes to practice, we must say that the new New Balance RunIQ has a couple of minuses.

But, let’s take it step by step. For starters, let’s see the unboxing. When buying the New Balance RunIQ, customers will receive the device packed into a shoebox. We must say that this is a really great idea and a fun way of unpacking.

When customers will open the box, they will see the watch, backlit by battery-operated lights. The effect is very nice and customers will have the feeling that they have opened a briefcase filled with gold.

Inside the box, customers will also find the charging cable and a couple of instructional papers. The new New Balance RunIQ weighs approximately 2.5 ounces, which is a little bit heavy. This device comes with a 1.39-inch AMOLED screen, which is not so huge. But, if we measure the screen together with the three buttons placed on the side, we will have approximately 2 inches. So, yes, the screen is really imposing.

This means that the New Balance RunIQ is not comfortable enough to wear all day long. For now, the New Balance RunIQ is available only in black, but the company declared that it will release other color options very soon.

To be added that the strap is very comfortable and soft. The good thing about this strap is that users will be able to change it and they don’t need special tools to do that. Moving forward, we must say that the New Balance RunIQ comes with a built-in optical heart rate monitor, plus a GPS. Moreover, there are 4GB of memory storage, which means that users will be able to store numerous tracks.

But, the New Balance RunIQ can also stream music via compatible Bluetooth headphones, which is a huge plus.

As we mentioned earlier, the New Balance RunIQ runs Android Wear 2.0. This means that customers will have all the latest updates. One of the best feature is that users will be able to reply to phone notifications right from the watch.
