The smartwatch space just got a little more crowded with a new kid in town, dubbed the GW01 smartwatch from the prominent OEM, Ulefone who we must say are much more into the smartphone industry with their flagship Ulefone Vienna (which was compared with the Galaxy S7 edge) and the Ulefone Future with both handhelds bringing up quite a fight to other top players in the smartphone space.
This new smartwatch from this Chinese manufacturer is one that is specifically targeted at men with classic materials for an elegant exterior and other nifty implementations to crown up its overall durability and usefulness.
There are real-leather bands that are replaceable with any strap of your choice — which holds the round stainless steel that envelops a 1.3-inch touchscreen display with resolutions of about 240 x 240P and weighing in at a mere 0.054KG.
Taking a look under the hood, we see a MediaTek processor, the MTK2502 powering the wearable alongside 64MB RAM and an internal memory of 128MB. The GW01 draws power from a 310mAh battery source which has a standby time of about 120 hours and up to 3 hours charge time.
This wrist-worn device is compatible with both iOS and Android and supports Android 4.3 and iOS 7.0 operating systems and above. That’s not all; it also comes along with a list of languages to choose from and they include French, English, Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and a host of others.
On the connectivity side, we have Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity which you can use to connect to a smartphone and control the music player, push information and synchronize your messages on your phone and lets you check out your phone book and other calling options as well.
Also thrown in is an IP certified waterproofing, directions to find watch or phone when misplaced with the bidirectional anti-loss and other functions which includes heart-rate monitor, Ultra-Violet and body temp monitoring, sleep monitor, massager, remote camera, pedometer, sedentary reminder and Siri.
However, there are other fundamental additions that didn’t fail to make an appearance and they include the stopwatch, alarm clock, calendar, notifications for IM apps, voice recorder and reminders. We also see the wearable coming in with 3 color options – gold, black and silver – and an asking price of $54.99 over at GearBest.
