Best Chinese Smartwatch

Most of us would think about Chinese products and technology as one of the words around the globe. But that is not true at all, Chinese policy regarding the production of most of the products manufactured in China may be stricter than in most of the countries. Most of the big companies chose China as their main manufacturing location due to its cheap labor work.

As China is one of the market leaders in the electronics industry, we can be assured that their products’ quality is not lacking at all, otherwise, China would’ve not been able to make it this far.

What to look for in a Chinese smartwatch:

If you are an impulsive buyer you must try as much as you can to get a hold of yourself and check these characteristics of a smartwatch before buying it, thus you won’t end up regretting your decision.

Connectivity

Wi-fi and/or Bluetooth connectivity are the crucial characteristic of a smartwatch. Without Bluetooth connectivity, pairing the watch with your smartphone would be an impossible task and at some point, you will want or need to pair your phone with the watch.

Compatibility

Even if the smartwatch supports Bluetooth it may not be compatible with your smartphone, as Apple watches are compatible just with Apple devices the same thing can happen with some smartwatches that are compatible with Android devices.

Therefore you may end up buying a smartwatch that is compatible only with Android and would be quite inconvenient if you own an iPhone, or you may buy a watch compatible just with iOS devices while owning just Android devices. Both of the cases can be bothersome, so before buying checking its compatibility is a must.

Automatically Syncs

This feature may not be as important as the ones above, but it still is quite useful. A smartwatch that automatically syncs your data when it is in the range of your computer or smartphone can prevent you from some losses that can be caused by either damage or software errors.

Battery Life

Better battery life would require fewer charges as most of us want. If you buy a smartwatch without even checking its battery life you can end up buying a watch that requires more than a charge a day and no one likes to run out of battery when they need the device the most.

Charge time

These days no one has much free time. Most of us are always in rush, therefore a lower charging time is crucial for some of us. A charging time higher than 3 hours may require us to leave the watch at home, at it is not a good idea to unplug it before its battery is fully charged.

Ads-free

We all know how bothersome adds can be and I think our watches is the last gadget we want ads on. Getting a smartwatch that is not ads-free will surely make you regret your decision as no one enjoys being distracted by the same ad a couple of times a day.

Answering calls

Being able to answer the calls via your watch is a nice perk to have, especially if you do not always keep your phone near you while you are indoor. By being able to answer calls with your watch, you won’t miss important calls and also you will have a bit more freedom while answering because you will have your hands free all the time as you won’t need to keep your phone next to the ear.

FAQ:

Does the watch require a smartphone?

The watches do not require smartphones in order to be used so you can leave your phone at home while working out. If the watch has internal memory you can even listen to music without bothering to carry your phone around. All of the watch’s functions are available without using a phone, however it would be a good idea to pair your phone with the watch.

Is the smartwatch compatible with my phone?

Most of the watches are compatible with both Android and iOS, however you have to check it before as it is not guaranteed that the smartwatch would be compatible. Most of the watches are not compatible with Windows phones.

Is the watch band replaceable?

Almost all smartwatches have replaceable bands, so you don’t have to worry about damaging the band or changing it with one more suitable for you. However you must check if it is replaceable as there still is a low chance for some watches not to have the band replaceable.
