While the Apple Watch isn’t really affordable for everyone, there are several knock offs on the market and a lot of them actually get the job done without breaking your bank.
Today we’re going to look at a similar, ultra-budget offering from Chinese manufacturer ZGPAX, the S79 Bluetooth Smartwatch Phone that looks a lot like the Apple Watch, but costs only $25.74 after a 29% discount on GearBest.
The smartwatch doesn’t run iOS or Android, but is compatible with with both devices and comes with dialing functionality, bluetooth support and a built-in pedometer.
This means you can make and take calls from the watch and sync it with your existing phone if you want. The watch can also play music, and has a built-in camera you can use to take pictures and record video.
Remotely accessing your smartphone camera is also a feature and the watch’s 1.54 inch touch screen display has a resolution of 240 x 240. Apart from the typical tools like alarm, calendar and calculator, you also get sleep monitor and a sedentary reminder to keep you on your feet.
In terms of its build, the watch has a stainless steel case, which is durable and a soft rubber strap with a pin buckle. There is a sim slot which will make the watch a standalone phone that can make and receive calls. There is a memory card slot in the watch as well and it supports GSM850/900/1800/1900MHz frequencies.
