FitRist is Bluetooth enabled and once it is paired with your phone it will display all sorts of notifications from your phone directly on its display panel. It can only be paired with smartphones running on Android 4.3 or higher and iPhones running iOS 7 or later. This smartband also allows users to control their music player and helps in tracking the paired smartphones in case you can’t remember where you put them.
