In this review, let’s talk about smartwatches from the Rogbid brand, which are called Rowatch 2s. They are able to measure not only the already familiar pulse and the level of oxygen in the blood, but also pressure. We’ll talk about all this in this article, so be sure to read to the end to find out how they ended up.

The clock is delivered in a white box made of rather fragile cardboard, but I liked the design, since there is nothing superfluous on it. On the front side there is an image of the monitored device and the inscription «smart watch».
On the reverse side are technical specifications and just below the color of the watch, which is inside the box.
I don’t know, but I’m not used to seeing the model name on the side of the box. This is usually illustrated on the front of the package. And the font, of course, is very interesting.
Let’s talk about the package (inside the box):
- magnetic cable for charging;
- instruction in several languages (Russian is available);
The Rogbid Rowatch 2s comes in three color options: gold with a pink strap, silver with a green/black strap, and black with a green/black strap.
It is convenient that the straps are interchangeable and 20 mm. And on the same platform, AliExpress has a lot of straps to choose from.
On the bottom there are two sensors that light only green during all measurements. However, a red light is needed to accurately track the blood oxygen reading, but it does not light up during the measurement.
The watch case is made of zinc, on which the only mechanical button is located (on the right side of the case).
- watch weight 48.8 grams;
- dimensions: 43.5 x 31.5 x 9.52 mm;

Functionality and features of Rowatch 2s
In total, the watch has six built-in dials, which differ from each other in design and information content. At the moment I have the simplest one, where only the time is displayed and that’s it. That is, in this topic there are no more indicators, as, for example, it is in other dials (the number of steps taken per day, day of the week and month, pulse, and so on).
In order to change the dial, you need to pinch your finger on the main page and that’s it.
If you swipe your finger from top to bottom (on the main page, what was above), then the settings will open, where you can:
- turn off the clock or reset it to factory settings;
- find out information about the firmware;
- adjust brightness;
There is enough brightness almost everywhere, since on sunny days (under direct rays) the screen becomes simply dark and difficult to read. This is true for all budget watches. But, in general, I liked the screen.
There is a delay between screens, but it is small. And activating the screen when raising your hand works without problems.
The watch is protected from moisture according to the IP68 standard. After immersing the watch under water, nothing happened to them, they also work normally.
If you swipe from the bottom to the top (on the main page), the watch will display the current notifications that have come to the watch.
Also on the main page, you can flip pages from left to right, or vice versa from right to left. Let’s go from left to right:
- phone search mode;
- sleep information;
- weather information;
- choice of training;
- music control screen;
- measurement of blood oxygen saturation, measurement of pulse pressure and steps;
This watch works with the GloryFit app, which is available on both Google Play and the AppStore. Let me remind you that the watch is compatible with Android 5.0 and above, iOS 9.0 and above. You can sign up for the app using email, Apple, and Facebook.
After registration, indicate:
- the weight;
- the rate of steps per day;
Overall, the app is very similar to Xiaomi’s app called Mi Fit. This application displays all the indicators taken by the watch from your hand. I am very pleased that everything is fine here with the translation into Russian.
Among other things, through the application, you can download various watch faces to the watch. You have to admit that there are quite a few of them, and it’s also very cool that you can create your own watch face (this is shown in the screenshot above with the heading “Customization”).
Through the watch, you can control the camera of your smartphone. Well, how to manage, it would be more correct to say with the help of them you can remotely take photos. Also, through the watch there is access to music management, through which you can:
- play or pause music;
- switch track to next/previous;
I note that the clock does not measure the performance of either air or inanimate objects. The pulse is measured in real time and the result is announced quite quickly. And quite true (when compared with the Apple Watch).
I don’t even want to comment on pressure measurements here, since they are useless and not accurate. If we compare the data with a tonometer, then they differ significantly from each other. With a blood oxygen meter, everything is still in question.
The battery capacity of the watch is 180 mAh. A fully charged watch is enough for me for about 6 days of use. While charging, the watch will not be able to be used, since at this moment the animation of the charge level is played on the screen.

Summing up, I would like to say that Rogbid Rowatch 2s perform all the most important functions. I liked the fact that notifications come quickly and read without any problems. As for the design, I have no complaints here, as they turned out really bright and beautiful. And I think that this watch (namely in pink version) is perfect for the female half, as they look especially elegant. And if such functions as measuring pressure and oxygen in the blood are important to you, then you should definitely consider other watch models.
