Boult Crown R Pro smartwatch review: Elegant and economical
Design is one of the strongest aspects of Crown R Pro. The smartwatch has a round display with a zinc alloy frame and strap and is almost resistant to scratches.
Boult Crown R Pro Review: Boult recently launched the Crown R Pro smartwatch with a metallic strap and features like always-on-display (AoD), functional crown and others. The smartwatch is priced at Rs 3,499 but you can buy it for less than Rs 3,000 on certain e-commerce platforms. Do these features justify the price tag of this smartwatch, let's find out in the review.
Boult Crown R Pro Review: Design
Design is one of the strongest aspects of Boult Crown R Pro. The smartwatch has a round display with a zinc alloy frame and strap. The watch is almost resistant to scratches and even after a month of usage, I can hardly see any scratches from my naked eye. I am not a fan of silicon straps as no matter how good they would be, my wrist gets sweaty. But this is significantly reduced in this case as the metal mesh band allows better circulation of air.

It has a functional crown and a button to wake-up display, which also gives quick access to the voice assistant. The crown feature works smoothly and lets you cruise through the menus or change watch faces very easily without any lag. However, the crown is quite big and protrudes out of the frame and is therefore prone to accidental touches. It often changes the smartwatch face.
Overall, the design of Boult Crown R Pro feels premium and sturdy. The icing on the cake is that it comes with IP67 waterproof technology. The company claims that it can be submerged to a depth of 0.5 meter for up to 30 minutes. It also offers protection against the ingress of dust and airborne particles.
Boult Crown R Pro Review: Display
Boult Crown R Pro has a 1.43-inch super AMOLED display and offers a peak brightness of 500 nits. The company hasn't mentioned the refresh rate but the screen is quite responsive. It is also bright enough for outdoor usage. One really useful feature of the smartwatch is always-on-display.
Battery and charging
The company has not mentioned any details about the capacity of the battery but you can use the watch easily for two days with normal Bluetooth calling and always-on-display. The battery life can be increased to over a week by turning off AoD and Bluetooth calling. Boult Crown R Pro smartwatch comes with Type-C to two-pin magnetic charger that can fully charge the watch in less than two hours.
Boult Crown R Pro Review: Performance
Thanks to Bluetooth 5.2 and a dedicated mic and speaker, Bluetooth calling works well inside the room. However, you may not get the best results when using it in crowded places. You can download the BoultTrack app to keep track of all your activities and get notifications on the smartwatch.
From monitoring heart rate 24x7 to blood pressure and SpO2 saturation, the smartwatch can manage everything. But like most of the smartwatches in this price bracket, the sensors of Boult Crown R Pro too are not very accurate.
Boult Crown R Pro Review: Verdict
This is one of the very smartwatches that really looks cool and classic. Features like AMOLED display, always-on-display, working crown and Bluetooth calling make it worth the price tag.
