Low end smart watch. Metallic copy of V8 China smart watch

Smart Watch made in mainland china. Mostly nothing about this watch is different than most of others in this price level. The same as most of these models, features none of internet features are working. (Whatsapp/Facebook/Twitter). Metallic design, with rubber band. Band is not changeable. Camera is not build on this model.

From features on this watch is pedometer, sleep monitor, serenity monitoring which are actually working.  Operating system is unknown. Watch have 3 default watch faces. Vibration mode and file manager, with what gives ability to upload images and use them as wallpaper. Can connect to any device with bluetooth connection. Fully working with Android. On iPhone some features not working (SMS Push/sync, Anti Lost, Calendar sync.). To use some features on Android app is obligatory. App is 3rd party creation and to download/install it phone must have unknown sources turned on.
Supports SIM and MicroSD card up to 32GB. Build in speaker is low quality, therefore it will be useless as handsfree.

Decent design at first raises expectations that we got quality product, but this watch is nothing more than others in this price range. Comes with good retail box, charger and manual in Chinese + English. Watch faces are changeable. 3 build in watch faces. Bluetooth connection tested with iPhone and Android phones. Duplicates incoming and outgoing calls. As usual for this price range smart watches, speaker quality is low and it is useless as hands free phone.  Because of low speaker quality it is not much usable as music player. Remote controls of camera/sms messages are not working on iPhone. For Android it is obligatory to download unsecure 3rd party app. Vibration function made good impression.

Even that it supports SIM card, none of internet related apps are working even if SIM used.
Battery life is extremely low. In active use works less than 4 hours. To fully charge this watch it takes up to 6 hours.

    As for this price range design gives good impression. Otherwise it is not different from V8, GT08 or Q18 China smart watches. if used as hands free phone it is useless , as internal speaker is very low quality. We could recommend this watch just to buy as low price gift or as children's watch.
