It’s definitely an interesting smartwatch, one that stands out from the crowd in the saturated smartwatch market, and because of this, we’re eager to put it through a full review. Between all the hype and excitement, does the Dizo Watch R Talk really live up to the hype, or is it all just hot air? We went in-depth with the smartwatch during our testing period, and now we’re ready to reveal the results, so join us for our Dizo Watch R Talk full review!
Dizo Watch R Talk: Tech Specs
For most people, the first thing that catches your eye about the Dizo Watch R Talk is probably its impressive spec sheet, especially considering the relatively affordable price of the smartwatch. To put it simply, these are some impressively great specs, and it’s difficult to find any area to really fault the device. In every department, it stands up to the competition and even outdoes some to a certain degree.
To make things easier for you, we’ve listed the full tech spec sheet for the Dizo Watch R Talk below.

As for other features, the Dizo Watch R Talk comes with a heart rate monitor, blood oxygen level sensor, sleep tracker, step tracker, and workout modes for activities such as running, cycling, and swimming. It also has notifications for calls, messages, and other apps, and users can control music playback and camera shutter from the watch. Overall, a surprisingly complete package on paper, but how does it fare in real use?
Dizo Watch R Talk: Design and Build
Design is one of those departments where Dizo tends to shine, and we’re happy to report that this is exactly the case with the Dizo Watch R Talk. Starting from the front of the device, we’re greeted by a circular dial encased within a stainless steel frame. It looks impressively premium, and it feels solid in the hand, far more than its budget-oriented price tag would suggest.
It’s a given fact that the Dizo Watch R Talk is a fairly sturdy product though, considering its IP68 certification keeps it resistant to water and dust. Despite this, the design isn’t at all bulky, even with its 22mm silicone straps. These straps feature a quick-release style pin, meaning you can mix and match them according to your liking. We always appreciate some customization options with our smartwatches.
Getting to the more functional portion of the Dizo Watch R Talk’s design, we find the built-in mic right around the lip of the device. Next to it, you’ll find the physical navigation buttons and the smartwatch’s single speaker. Thankfully, the buttons don’t dig into your wrist, avoiding any discomfort that could arise from wearing it. Finally, over on the rear, you’ll find the rest of the sensors, as well as the device’s charging pin.
Design-wise, there’s surprisingly little to complain about. The build quality on the Dizo Watch R Talk is simply phenomenal for the price, and that’s not even taking into account its pricing. Meanwhile, on the design end, Dizo keeps up its pedigree of releasing premium-looking products at a fraction of the price their competitors charge. There’s not much to poke a stick at here.
Dizo Watch R Talk: Display
Moving on to the display of the Dizo Watch R Talk, we find the little 1.3-inch AMOLED panel on the front of the device. With a resolution of 360 x 360 and a pixel density of 392ppi, it’s pleasantly sharp and vibrant. It also gets surprisingly bright, with Dizo claiming the display hits 500 nits of brightness, and we believe them. Taking the watch outside and pumping up the brightness, we found everything we tried to read was perfectly legible and easy to make out.
The brightness does however get in the way slightly when you try to use the Dizo Watch R Talk in a darker room. Simply put, the minimum brightness is still fairly bright, which can make it a bit uncomfortable to look at it. Thankfully, there are options for gestures, so the screen can stay off most of the time and only turn on when it’s needed. Otherwise, it’s actually a pretty great display!
Dizo Watch R Talk: UI
Not too much to say here, the UI on the Dizo Watch R Talk is pretty standard for a Dizo smartwatch. It’s intuitive and easy to use, with all the features you’d like to access available at a glance. A single swipe down brings up your notifications while swiping up brings out your utilities, like workout controls and timers.
Using the physical buttons allows you to access the different sports modes available, though only 11 are available by default. You can find the rest in the Dizo app, which is also pretty easy to use. It’s available from your smartphone’s respective app store and works quite well for keeping track of all your fitness configurations and exercise times. Overall, we’re satisfied with the Dizo Watch R Talk’s UI, it looks good, works well, and has only a slight learning curve.
Dizo Watch R Talk: Features and Performance
So, everything’s great so far, but does the Dizo Watch R Talk live up to expectations in regard to its features? Well, once again, we’re happy to see that the Dizo Watch R Talk continues its excellent performance so far. Pairing your smartphone to the watch, be it iOS or Android, is a painless affair thanks to the Dizo app, and Bluetooth-related features practically work flawlessly.
Answering and rejecting calls is as intuitive as it is simple, and the built-in microphone does a decent job during calls. The speaker isn’t the best around, but for what it is, it’s pretty workable and more than enough. Performance meanwhile is generally smooth, with the Dizo Watch R Talk running smooth regardless of what we threw at it.
As a fitness tracker, we have no qualms with the Dizo Watch R Talk. As far as we’re concerned, it tracks basically every metric perfectly well, with no inaccurate readings or flaws. The only exception to this seems to be the sleep tracker, which can occasionally log slightly incorrect information, but otherwise, it performs great. Once again, we find not much to complain about in regards to the Dizo Watch R Talk.
Dizo Watch R Talk: Battery Life
Dizo promises 10 days of battery life with the always-on display feature off, and generally, the Dizo Watch R Talk comes pretty close to that metric. Most of the time, with the screen on 50% brightness and most fitness and Bluetooth features active, we’d manage to hit around 8 to 9 days of battery life. It’s not exactly the advertised time, but it’s pretty darn close. With some optimization, it wouldn’t be difficult to get 10 days out of it.
The type of watch face you use can also have a bit of an impact on your battery life, though nothing too bad. Out of the 150 watch faces, we found the brighter ones would drain more battery life, naturally. On top of this, turning the always-on display feature bumps the battery life down to a mere 3 to 4 days, which still isn’t too bad. It also only takes around 2 hours to fully charge, which is pretty good.
Dizo Watch R Talk: Conclusion
This has been a pretty glowing review of the Dizo Watch R Talk, and for the most part, we think it deserves the hype it gets. Its spec sheet is a pretty honest representation of what you get, and in most markets, it’s quite affordable, so we can see why it’s a tempting offer. The build quality, performance, features, and battery life all show great value for money after all.
Of course, it’s not perfect. We have some minor issues with sleep tracking being inaccurate, and the screen brightness, even at its lowest, is still much too bright. In retrospect, some may even find the bezels around the screen to be a little bit chunky, but these are all minor issues. Where it matters most, the Dizo Watch R Talk does an admirable job almost all of the time. If you’re looking for a new smartwatch fitness tracker hybrid, the Dizo Watch R Talk will serve you quite well.
