The new smartwatch Haylou Solar LS05 has been presented on YouPin crowdfunding platform. This is the second smartwatch from Haylou. The first watch was released in late 2019, but it had a square dial.
The new Haylou Solar LS05 comes with a round dial. By the way, don’t you think the new Haylou watch is very similar to Galaxy Watch Active? I think it is very good because Samsung Galaxy Active looks very stylish and attractive.
In general, I like the round design of Haylou Solar LS05 more than the previous Haylou LS01 with square display.
What about the functions? Let’s start our first review and talk about all the features of the new Haylou 2020 smartwatch.
Where To Buy?
Round Dial Is The Main Update
As I said, one of the major updates of the new Haylou Solar LS05 is the round dial. The frame around the display is made of metal. On the right side, there is one round physical button.
On the back side, you can see a heart rate sensor and charging contacts.
The size of Haylou smartwatch is 45.3 x 11.4 mm. It weighs only 54 grams.
The width of the strap is 22 mm. By the way, the strap is removable, so you can buy any other, including leather and metal, which you prefer. The main thing is to pay attention to the width of the strap – 22 mm.
Haylou Solar LS05 is waterproof by IP68 standard. The smartwatch has a swimming sports mode, you can swim with it in the pool. We will talk about sports modes and functions a bit later.
As I already said, the display is full round and colored. The diagonal is 1.28-inches and the resolution is 240 x 240 pixels. The TFT screen is good even in direct sunlight.
In fact, Haylou Solar LS05 has a standard functions set for the fitness watch 2020. The smartwatch counts the steps, distance and the calories.
The manufacturer boasts of the advanced technology for sleep quality analysis.
Of course, the new Haylou smartwatch has a heart rate sensor. Moreover, 24/7 continuous heart rate monitoring function is available. If the watch detects any problems with your heart, it will let you know.
Haylou Solar LS05 will notify you of new messages or calls to your smartphone.
In addition, I would like to draw your attention to the built-in breathing training function. You can choose a time of 1 or 2 minutes during which you need to deeply breathe in and out. Exercise allows you to relax and calm down during hard work, meetings or quarrels with loved ones.
Haylou Solar LS05 has a phone search function, stopwatch, music control on the smartphone and weather forecast.
As for sports modes, there are 12 in total available, such as running, cycling, swimming, hiking, yoga, basketball and others.
Haylou Solar LS05 has a battery capacity of 340 mAh. The manufacturer says that new smartwatch works for up to 15 days with 24/7 continuous heart rate monitoring enabled. If you turn it off, the smartwatch will last for up to 30 days.
I think it’s a great battery life for a color screen smartwatch with many functions.
Haylou Fit app
Haylou Solar LS05 is not a standalone smartwatch, so you need to connect it to your smartphone. The watch connects to the mobile device via Bluetooth 5.0.
First you need to download an app called Haylou Fit on your Android or iOS device.
The set of functions and available options in the app are not very different from Mi Fit or Amazfit. You can track your daily activity, heart rate, sleep quality, etc. in the app.
Price and buy Haylou Solar LS05
Haylou Solar LS05 was presented on the YouPin platform. Its price is 149 yuan or $21.
The first shipments will start from May 17th, 2020.
Most likely in early summer, the new Haylou smartwatch will be available at Aliexpress, GearBest, Banggood and other popular Chinese online retailers. Waiting!
By the way, did you notice the name of Haylou Solar smartwatch? Why Solar? Solar is solar energy, but Haylou new watch is not charged by solar energy. Most likely, the manufacturer has decided to compare the round dial of the watch with the sun. Or maybe it’s a marketing trick, because I really thought the new Haylou Solar LS05 was powered by sunlight.
