The metal case is covered with 2.5D curved glass, which is often used in automobile parts since it not only looks great but also protects the watch from dents and scratches.

Other health functions of the watch are it can serve as a reminder to drink more water, perform breathing exercises to help you stay calm, and for ladies, it can be used to track your menstrual cycle.

Performance
Setup only takes a couple of steps, first is you need to plug the watch on a power source, we use a powerbank since it's more convenient. Next is you need to scan the QR code to download the DIZO app, or you can go to Google Play or App store to simply download the app and create an account.

Then finally you need to bind the DIZO Watch 2, it will automatically detect the watch simply confirm the pairing and you can start customizing the watch, like changing the watch face (dial center) and other settings.

Wearing the DIZO watch 2 all day is quite comfortable; the strap feels great against the skin, and we didn't have to worry about damaging the watch when it get wet.

The watch function is easy to use, since it supports touch function, simple swipe and tap the features you want to use, and it's very responsive to the touch. If you want to see all the functions, simply swipe from the bottom to up at once.

The steps counter is close to accurate, so it's fun to see how many steps you can get in one day. One of the cool features we love is breathing training, this helps us to relax when we need it most.

Recording a workout is simple thanks to the 15 sports modes; simply select the workout you want to record and it will begin recording. To stop recording, simply click the button and save the workout. Detailed workout records may be viewed at a glance on the watch, as well.

The SpO2 monitor does a good job of identifying the blood oxygen sensor, which can be used as a reference point for diagnostics or if you just want to check your blood oxygen. The Sleep Monitor feature is another one of our favorites since it helps us develop better sleeping habits.

Battery Life
The DIZO Watch 2 packs a 260mAh battery, we're able to get 8 days of use which is not bad for a wearable device. Charging is easy using the included charging cable, sadly it uses a different type of magnetic connector, so you won't be able to use your realme watch 2 to charge.

With its 260mAh battery, we were able to get 8 days of use out of the DIZO Watch 2, which is reasonable for a smartwatch. The provided charging cable makes charging simple, and it takes about 2 hours to fully charge the battery. Just make sure you don't lose the cable, as it appears to use a proprietary charging port.

Nice metallic design
Simple UI
Touch display
long battery life
5 atm water resistance
Accurate HR & SpO2
All Notification

Cons:
Screen protection not specified
Dizo app has lees features
Proprietary charging cable
The hinge on the strap is not strong
Raise to wake up option not fast
No extra strap included
