If you are one of those people who have seen ad boxes appearing on their Facebook newsfeed touting Bluetooth smart watches costing 1/3 of the cost charged by Apple or Samsung, the following will surely interest you.
As for the design quality, let's be frank: this is a low-end watch, which costs 3 times less than an Apple Watch or Motorola women's smart watch. One should not expect miracles when it comes to this aspect.
That being said… to my surprise, some models are quite robust. People drop them more than once and contrary to what they feared the screen did not crack so much or come off. To sum up, it's a pretty solid toy. The only downside is on the side of the bracelet which is designed in a material that does not let the skin breathe;
As for the notifications - that is to say, the characteristic which gives its added value to the watch - the reliability of the watch on this point depends on 2 factors:
- the mobile application you use to link your Android phone and the watch,
- as well as the version of Android your phone is using.
It turns out the app suggested by the QR Code in the menu of the watch is incompatible with versions of Android greater than 5.1. If you are in this situation, you will therefore have to install a suitable app, which has almost universal support for Bluetooth smart watch.
Also, the watch vibrates with each notification, in a not very discreet way. And then we are talking about discretion, the ringtones of the watch do not fit in this register: those who are used to telephones will recognize two or three rings;
It is impossible to adjust the intensity of the vibrator or to add ringtones unless you go through flashing of firmware.
The resolution and clarity of the screen... well … you get what you pay for.
Can install android/android wear apps there? the watch uses its own operating system and offers apps such as a pedometer, a calendar, a contact manager, a thermometer/barometer, etc. The women's smart watch should have women-specific features as well.
What about autonomy? Count one day if you receive notifications every now and then and half a day for those like me who receive notifications every 1/2 hour - i.e. Instagram, Facebook subscribers, etc.
Can we call? In theory yes, it should be a Bluetooth smart watch. In practice, the quality of the loudspeakers does not allow you to have telephone conversations of exemplary clarity when you are in noisy places.
In my opinion, only in certain situations. For example, if you are on a professional interview and/or do not want to pass for one of those boors who are unable to have a conversation without taking their nose off their drinking, you will find your happiness at a lower cost with a good smartwatch.
