Construction & Build
The SOUNDPEATS Watch 2 has an unexpectedly superb build despite the cheap price.
The unit has an aluminum body with a rugged and quality feel while the wristband is made of silicone. The wrist strap can be adjusted in 13 steps and can be replaced with any compatible custom wristband available in the market.
Moreover, the brand has added a quick release system for the wrist strap, making it extremely easy to replace by any user.

The SOUNDPEATS Watch 2 offers a several smart functions that can be used when paired with a smartphone and in standalone mode.

The SOUNDPEATS Watch 2 has a high definition screen with a size of 1.28 inches.
The screen offers a resolution of 240×240; this corresponds to over 250 PPI which is more than a 4K 32” TV.
Moreover, the screen of the SOUNDPEATS Watch 2 provides an excellent size/resolution ratio that allows plenty of space for multiple information displayed on a single screen while preserving a clear and readable vision.
In addition to this, the panel has phenomenally deep blacks, popping saturated colors with very good contrast.

With a slim profile, quality build materials and a smooth form factor, the SOUNDPEATS Watch 2 is a true joy to wear for the whole day.
Additionally, the smart choice of choosing a silicone strap makes the fit gentle to the skin while offering excellent support, no slippery issues and durable material.
With 13 adjustable positions, the strap can adapt to any wrist’s sizes from kids to larger than average adult’s wrists.
Tightening of the band should not be too loose nor too tight, in order to provide a more accurate measurement of the sensors.
Throughout our testings, the SOUNDPEATS Watch 2 showed a snappy performance with extremely fast boot and reboot times.
In the past, many of the smartwatches that we have reviewed had some issues with the responsiveness of the “Lift to view screen” function, were we found having to press the physical buttons to activate the screen. Contrary to most other tested watches, the SOUNDPEATS Watch 2 always had a very reactive “Lift to view screen” even with naturally smooth raises – overall, the watch showed neither an excess nor a lack of responsiveness to the function.
With a modern Bluetooth v5.1, the watch showed a pristinely stable connection with the smartphone, never missing a notification nor loosing pairing with the phone.
Moreover, controlling music playback by both skipping tracks or controlling volume was nearly instant.
In addition to this, the physical button never misfired nor missed any press while the touch screen provided a good touch sensitivity and acceptable lag at rare occasions.
We would had liked to see the message function and music control to be part of the home screen shortcuts, instead of having only sports-related shortcuts – accessing unseen messages requires to navigate through the submenus with a couple of click and touches.
Both the heart rate and SpO2 sensors readings might not be medically accurate but fell within the standards of most of the Android SmartWatch-Phones that we have reviewed.
