Intex, one of the leaders in Indian smartphone market has launched a new fitness band the FitRist at a price of Rs. 999. The product is exclusively available in Snapdeal, in Dark Blue and White colours. This the second fitness band from Intex, the first being the iRist smartwatch. Priced at Rs. 999, FitRist is competing against Micromax’s Yu YuFit and Xiaomi Mi Band. Both are popular and priced at the same cost.

The device can be powered by both Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and above as well as iOS 7 and above.

Its also splash-proof and water-resistant.
FitRist offers up to 12 days of battery life and has a special feature that enables users to control music track on the smartphone by pairing the two devices via Bluetooth.
