Smart watches have already been democratized thanks, among others, to brands such as SPC that offer products of access ranges for all audiences. In this case we are talking about smart watches, which is what we have to analyze, and more specifically about a very succulent alternative if we talk about price and functionalities.
We are talking about SPC's Smartee Boost, its latest smartwatch with integrated GPS and great autonomy that is offered at an economical price. Discover with us this new device and if it is really worth it despite its reasonable price, do not miss this in-depth analysis.
As happens on many occasions, we have decided to accompany this analysis with a video of our YouTube channel, in this way you will be able to observe not only the unboxing but also the entire configuration procedure, so we invite you to complement this analysis you can take a look and help us continue to grow.

Design and materials
As can be expected in a watch in this price range, we find a device that is mainly made of plastic. Both the box and the bottom combine a kind of matte black plastic, although we can also buy a pink version.
- Weight: 35 grams
- Dimensions: 250 x 37 x 12 mm
The included strap is universal, so we can easily replace it, which is an interesting advantage. It has an overall dimensions of 250 x 37 x 12 mm so it is not particularly large, and weighs only 35 grams. It is a fairly compact watch, although the screen does not occupy the entire front.
We have a single button which simulates being a crown on the right side and in the back, in addition to the sensors, it has the area of magnetized pins for charging. In this regard, the watch is comfortable and easy to use.
Main technical characteristics
We focus on connectivity, and it is that it revolves around two fundamental points. The first is that we have Bluetooth 5.0 LE, Therefore, the level of use of the system will not negatively influence the battery of the device itself or that of the smartphone that we use. In addition, we have GPS, So we will be able to manage our movements precisely when managing training sessions, in our tests it has offered good results. In the same way The GPS also locates us to take into account certain sections of the included Weather application.
The watch is waterproof up to 50 meters, in principle it should not pose any problem when swimming with it, this may be due to the fact that it lacks a microphone and speakers, however it does it vibrates and it does quite well. Obviously we have heart rate measurement, but not with blood oxygen measurement, an increasingly common feature.
I do not miss any other function as long as we take into account the low price of this product, which is designed for the access range.
Screen and app
We have an quite small IPS LCD panel, more specifically 1,3 inches in total that leave a somewhat pronounced bottom frame. Despite this, it shows more than enough for daily performance. Due to its provision in our tests we have been able to easily read the notifications and it has some notable advantages.
The first is that it is a laminated panel that also has an anti-reflection coating for easy use in sunlight. If we accompany this with the maximum and minimum brightness it offers, the reality is that its use outdoors is comfortable, it has good angles and we do not lose any information.
- Charge the device to boot
- We download the application
- We log in and fill out the questionnaire
- We scan the barcode with the serial number of the box
- Our SPC Smartee Box will appear and click on connect
- It will be fully matched
In the application We can consult a lot of information related to our physical performance such as:
- Distances traveled
- Trainings performed
- Sleep tracking
- Heart rate tracking
Despite everything, the application is perhaps excessively simplistic. It offers us little information, although it is sufficient for what the device claims to offer.
Training and autonomy
The device has a number of training presets, which are specifically the following:
- Rock climbing
- Running on treadmill
- Indoor cycling
- Walk indoors
- Open water swimming
The GPS will be activated automatically in "outdoor" activities. We can modify the shortcuts of the trainings in the user interface of the watch itself.
As for the battery we have 210 mAh that offer a maximum of 12 continuous days, But with some active sessions and the GPS activated, we have reduced it to 10 days, which is not bad either.
User interface and experience
The user interface is intuitive, yes, we only have 4 spheres that we can toggle by making a long press on the «start». In the same way, in the movement to the left we have direct accesses to the GPS and the function of finding the phone, which will emit a sound.

To the right we have health and training data, as well as in the application drawer we will be able to access the alarms, the Weather application and some more that will help us for daily performance. To be honest, it offers few functionalities beyond what a sports tracking bracelet would offer, but the screen size and user interface make it easy to use on a daily basis.
In short, we have a product that rather resembles a tracking bracelet, but offers a screen with a good brightness and a sufficient size. to facilitate its use at a price below 60 euros in usual points of sale. A very interesting alternative and an extremely reasonable price when we talk about a smartwatch.
