The moment we say Smartwatch, the brands which strike our mind are Apple , Moto 360, Pebble, LG Watch and few other brands, but what if I tell you that there’s a $20 watch that may not be better than these brands, but it can compete well !!! Agree or no, but the Padgene DZ09 is a cheap watch with 2.0MP camera, expandable storage up to 32GB, and SIM card support.
The Smartwatch features a 1.56″ LCD touchscreen display with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixel, powred by a 533MHz MediaTek processor with 128MB RAM and 64MB of flash memory (supporting expansion by up to 32GB via microSD card).
The Padgene’s smartwatch best feature is the SIM card support. Honestly, there are not many smartwatches supporting SIM card, all of them are capable of using a phone’s card but very few have their own SIM.
The watch runs on the GPRS network and what all you can do is
- Make calls
- Answer calls
- Create phone-book
- Send & receive SMS
anything you’d find on a normal and outdated mobile device. But still that’s innovative because it can be considered as a standalone mobile device.
The watch 2MP camera takes photos and records videos, the watch can be paired with Android or iOS smartphone, but i case of Apple, some features are limited.
The fitness tracking featured supports include the activity tracking sensor, sleep monitor, pedometer, and other sensors like anti-loss technology and more.
The Padgene DZ09 smartwatch gets powered by a 480 mAh battery, supports micro USB charging and is available to order from Amazon for $20 / Rs 1400.
