U8 Smartwatch Review
Device Review: U8 Smartwatch For IOS and Android
About the Unknown:
A new Chinese tech manufacturer have launched a very affordable smartwatch offering in the market, the company doesn’t offer anything quite market breaking but the price tag is the stuff that attracts us.
U8 watch starts at $7(less than 500 INR).
The device supports Android and IOS and is available only in Black colour.
The watch is compatible with Bluetooth 3.0 and up.

We were provided with the watch for a detail review, and it was pretty straightforward review.
The device in no way feels premium in hand. Watch is very light weight(Just 76gms), and made throughout with plastic, button on the side is a solid square button.
The feel all in all is very average.
Touch on the watch is a bit laggy, touch response is ok, and the 3 capacitive buttons on the watch lacks a bit in response times.
Speaker on the left side of the watch is not very great and there is a bit of cracking and stuttering when it is made to work.
Because of the screen being too small (1.48”), doing stuff like using the calendar and calculator is quite tough to operate.
But the device does all the necessary work that it needs to achieve, you can set alarm from the watch, you can use stopwatch and also pedometer is there which tells you the steps you take, time you have been running, fat you burned, your speed, and your mileage.
You can read the messages you receive on your phones, you can control your music and camera from the watch.
The watch also has sleep monitor, which helps to monitor your sleep pattern, and the watch also have water reminder, this helps you remember to drink water timely to keep you healthy.
The company claimed of about 160 hrs of standby time and 6 hrs of music play time. But on a personal usage the watch lasted for around 5 hours on a very average usage. But we expect around a day of play time from any Smartwatch. but as always the price tag comes to rescue for this device.
Our take on the device:
We think that the watch is not for people who want their Smartwatch to be premium looking.
This watch is a basic watch that is the answer to all your basic Smartwatch needs. And with its price tag it’s quite a good option for new buyers and people who want a less expensive alternative to big money smartwatches. The watch has a very average battery, excellent functions and an even better guarantee.
