Urban Fit S Smartwatch: Design And Display

You wouldn’t have any complaints about it. The only drawback with the design is it isn’t entirely sweat resistant.

Now coming to the display, the Urban Fir S smartwatch is equipped with a 1.78-inch AMOLED display. Now, this screen size is a bit taller than what the competition offers. It is a color touchscreen panel that offers smooth feedback with scrolling through the menu and available features on the watch.
