When it comes to SmartWatch we talk about the Apple Watch, Samsung Gear Watches, Fitbit etc which all are above ₹20,000 or $300 but here we have a sub $100 smartwatch by WatchOut Wearables. Is it worth the price? Let’s find out in the video. Hey, whats up guys welcome Sid Tech and you are watching my review of the Watchout Glorious Gold smartwatch, Let’s get started.
The metal strap is adjustable and can be adjusted just like any other metal smartwatch. It comes with a 1.22 inch IPS touchscreen display with 240*240 pixel resolution. The touch response is good and the display is easily visible in direct sunlight and you can adjust the brightness accordingly, There is a circular touch type capacitive button below the display which acts like a back key.
The power is placed in the crown at the right-hand side, which is used to power on the smartwatch and wake up the display. There is also lift the wrist to wake up the display feature which works pretty well. Talking about what’s under the hood it runs on MTK2502C-ARM7processor coupled with 64MB of RAM and 128MB of internal storage. The smartwatch houses a 300mAh battery which will last you a day but you will have to charge it at night.
It uses magnetic pogo pin charging cable to charge the smartwatch which it takes around 1 and a half to 2 hours to charge completely. Watch out suggests you charge it with your normal charger and not fast charger as it only supports 5V and 1.2 A The smartwatch is IP4 water splash resistant meaning it won’t get damaged while washing hands or accidental spills but don’t submerge the watch in water or take shower with it.
Coming to the UI and Watch faces, it comes with many pre-installed watch faces and tons of watch faces which you can download from their website. I personally like this pre-installed stock digital theme, which matched the gold color. If you are planning to get this watch do check out their FAQ section they have got answers to your every query which is great, a big shout to WatchOut team for the FAQ page. Swiping from anywhere on the watch face will take you the app drawer and long press will let you change watch faces.
The app can connect to both Android and iOs devices via Bluetooth and the MediaTek smart devices app. You can also use techmade sport or fundo wear app for getting more sports data via your smartwatch. You can receive your app notifications on the smartwatch both on iOS and Android but sadly Motorola devices are not supported. But you will get call alert on Motorola devices too. You can take or end calls via the smartwatch and as it comes with a built-in microphone and speaker you can talk via smartwatch too.
It is not great but you can talk. As the other party was easily able to hear me. The watch also comes with a heart rate sensor which is a hit or miss but works well in continuous mode which will take a hit on the battery life. It can track your step count, distance traveled and calories burnt but you will have to start the pedometer to track all these. The tracking is accurate but I don’t like to turn the pedometer on every time I want to track steps. There is also a sleep tracking feature which is of no use as you will have to start it before sleeping. Overall in terms of fitness tracking, I would say you are better off with a fitness band
Now coming to its USP and the feature for which I can recommend this watch to anyone. You can trigger both Siri and Google assistant via the smartwatch and ask your query. The assistants will respond to you via smartwatch speakers and if you need to see something you can do it via your smartphone. Another thing which I like is that it keeps the Google assistant contextual feature. For example, if I ask who is the prime minister of India. It will respond Narender Modi and then ifIi again tap the icon and say how old is he, it remembers my previous query and tells his age.
The watch also comes with some essential features like alarms and it will also remind you to take a walk according to the time interval you have set. There are three different themes and two UI’s for you to choose.The watch also comes with a calculator and calendar. I wish I could set up events or sync calendar with Google calendar. You can also control your music and camera via the smartwatch and both these features work really well.
Now coming to my verdict. In terms of looks, the watch is good, display and touch work really well. The smart features also work well and as told before the google assistant and Siri functionality is just amazing. The only thing I don’t like is the fitness tracking. So if you want a fitness tracker I won’t recommend it but if you need a good looking smartwatch and don’t want to spend over ₹20,000, at a price of ₹5,499 this watch is really good.
