There are many wearable tech that offers the “all-in-one” moniker; many of these are being advertised as timepieces and fitness trackers, but the Runtastic Moment Elite may prove to be something new. The company is more known for their apps rather than their hardware. However, there are times that they do get to release some noteworthy items on the market such as the Runtastic Orbit. Now, we get the Moment Elite.
The Runtastic Moment Elite is a Sexier Approach to the Fitness Tracker
The Runtastic Moment Elite is a sexier offering as compared to the Orbit band. It has looks that are essentially leaning towards an analogue watch. The Moment Elite is the higher-end offering to the wearable tech, as there are other two products of the same line, them being the Moment Fun and the Moment Basic.
It has a black coated stainless steel case that is not shiny or retiring. At 46-millimeters in diameter, the watch’s face is not overwhelming and looks just right when worn on the wrist. The NOTA-style woven strap complements the watch’s face nicely as well.
At the right side of the Runtastic Moment Elite watch, there’s a single button whereas the face is a pilot-style design. Upon closer inspection, the wearable tech will reveal one of its secrets – the internal scale is in KM. This is due to the device’s ability to track pertinent data when you’re running or jogging.
As for the watch’s glass, it is made in proper mineral glass. Hence, it cannot be easily damaged through scratching. The watch is also pretty decent as it only weighs about 242-grams. This is just enough for the device to provide a decent heft without being much of a hassle on the wrist. The device is also waterproof to depths of up to 100-meters. Therefore, you can take it along with you during your swimming excursions.
The watch uses a standard C4230 battery and will last for about 6-months. Herein lies one of the flaws of the device as the battery is not rechargeable. Once the battery is drained, owners are required to purchase a new one. Still, there is a watchmaker’s screwdriver that comes along with the packaging, hinting that the replacement will be an easy task.
The Runtastic Moment Elite may be placed as the higher-end cousin of the Fun and the Basic, but it is still cheaper as compared to other higher-end smartwatches/fitness trackers in the market. Generally speaking, it will bring a positive experience.
