The device also has a touting feature named Leaderboards which allows users to challenge their friends as well as themselves on fitness tasks and ‘Achievement Sharing’ for sharing statistics or selfies upon reaching a milestone.
The device is water-resistant (IP 67-rated) and features a TFT touchscreen display along with 3-5 days of battery life. The device supports Bluetooth 4.0 and comes with several interchangeable designer straps. The Blink Go is compatible with Android (5.1+) and iOS (10+) and allows users to “discover and communicate with each other.”
The device is built on the Myntra Wearables Platform (MWP) – the company’s software platform that enables the creation of a wide variety of wearables and will form the basis for all future development of such products. The company said that the Blink Go device will be available at special price of Rs. 1679 (plus taxes) at the company’s flagship sale event End of Reason Sale (EORS).
