NoiseFit Force Plus: Bold and basic, but should you buy?

NoiseFit Force Plus: Bold and basic, but should you buy?

NoiseFit Force Plus is available in India at ₹3,999 (at the time of writing this piece).

It has got IP67 dust and water resistance.

We will guage if it’s a good smartwatch underneath that rugged build.

NoiseFit Force Plus is a rugged smartwatch from Noise that looks sporty and as if it is built to withstand rough handling. If you have a modest budget but an adventurous spirit to engage in intense sports, the ₹3,999 price tag of NoiseFit Force Plus might draw your attention. However is it worth your hard-earned money, let’s find that out here. I have worn it for a week and here is my experience with it. 

NoiseFit Force Plus design


The main pitch is its rugged and/or sporty appearance. The case has uneven surfaces that give this look and perhaps even some endurance against long-term wear and tear. There are no certifications backing this, except for the IP67 rating against dust and water. 

The chassis is made of polycarbonate and zinc alloy combination. The build results in the thing weighing 64 grams. That's not too heavy but bulky enough to stay off of my wrist during night hours. Also, its shiny “Mist Grey” colour isn’t something I would like to wear during day time even. The Teal Blue colour is also like whatever. But, the black one appeals to my eyes. Your taste may vary.


There are two buttons on the right, the uses of which we will get to in a later section, but for now, know they click slightly differently. Not sure if it is just with my unit, but the top button is more relaxed whilst the bottom one has some resistance. It’s less clicky.

Attached to the case is a 22mm rubbery strap. You can swap it if you want to try a replacement strap from

NoiseFit Force Plus display and UI


Coming to the front of the watch again, here within the circular walls lies a 1.46-inch AMOLED panel with 466×466 pixel resolution. It is sufficiently bright and legible, even outdoors. 

You get more than 100 watch faces to customize the dial. The default ones were gaudy in my opinion and so I was quick to change them. 

You can sail through the watch’s interface using swipes and taps. Swiping left to right or vice versa shows the various widgets. The UI is too smooth to use. Swiping downwards brings the notification tray. The notifications land on the watch very quickly. You can tap on a notification to expand the message view and read the entire thing. However, you can’t reply or react to them. 

Swiping upwards brings the quick toggles and one of them is the settings option. Within the settings, there is an option to enable both Wrist Awake (raise your wrist to activate the screen) and Tap To Wake Up (tap on the screen to turn it on). But to save some battery life, you can disable them and click the top button to light up the display. When you want to put the screen to sleep, you can keep your palm over the dial and the lights turn off.

The top MFB (Multi-functioning button) can be clicked to enter the main menu and also to go back to previous screens and finally reach the home screen. The bottom one, however, is just there to open up the workout menu. I don’t mind its single utility as one would want a shortcut to this list for frequent quick access. 

Let’s see how it fared during my workout sessions.

NoiseFit Force Plus performance


NoiseFit Force Plus bags a heart rate tracker, SpO2 monitor, stress measuring option, female period tracker, sleep monitor, and the ability to count steps, distance, and calories burned. You get to record 130+ sports activities also.

On my route to the gym (which is about 750 meters), the NoiseFit watch showed 720 meters or 0.72 km. 

I then had a small 3-minute session on an indoor bicycle which resulted in a 15 kcal burn and an average heart rate of 120 bpm. Both these stats were close to what I was getting on an Apple Watch Series 8 I had on my other wrist (for the purposes of benchmarking).

By the way, the blood oxygen count was matching between the two watches.

Next, as part of the drill, I had about an hour of weight training which cost me 529 kcal on the Apple Watch and 235 kcal from Force Plus. This is a major deviation and seemingly wrong stats from the Noise watch. The average heart rate also was off by a margin. 

So, accuracy isn’t something to expect from it. There is however some consistency in the stats. Be it distance tracking or the calories burned, the numbers are comparable to a previous day’s count.  

The day ends and as I went to bed at night, I put it on as well as the Apple Watch on different wrists. In the morning the sleep hours came out similar on both. So, it does that job well.

Now a feature, not health related, but much sought-after from a budget smartwatch is Bluetooth Calling. You get Tru Sync (single chip for calling and the general Buetooth connectivity) technology, facility to save up to 10 contacts on the watch itself and even a dial pad to ring from the wrist. The call quality was fine. 


Finally, battery life. The advertised runtime is 7 days with typical usage. On standby, it claims to run for 30 days. To refill it, you are getting a proprietary charger with magnetic pogo-pin based clasp. It takes about 2 hours to full charge the thing from zero to hundred. 

Let’s now see how it does its job overall.

NoiseFit Force Plus: What do I think of it? 


In the intro, I wrote NoiseFit Force Plus is a “rugged-looking” smartwatch. It is not rugged like the more expensive options. But for a price of ₹3999 (after discounts), the watch’s design is likely to offer some shock resistance. The brand doesn’t make any lofty claims either. 

So, while getting into the test, my motive was to see if it is a good smartwatch, keeping its build aside. After all, it’s what’s inside that counts. In that respect, NoiseFit Force Plus is a serviceable offering from the brand, for the most part. Save for some inconsistency in the calorie data, the health and fitness tracking performance was good. And so, if you want a decently performing smartwatch with bold looks and don’t want to spend more than ₹4K, you can check out this Noise smartwatch at and Flipkart.
