The watch will display caller ID when a call is coming in and uses icons to notify you to texts, emails or social media activity. The watch can also show you missed calls, calendar notifications and low phone battery power alerts.
That's not smart at all.

It is a kind of smart watch, a smartphone accessory with a permanent Bluetooth connection.

Some people were saying it was not possible to have a one year charge.

Other kinds could have sensors instead of notifications/control, it might even be possible to have all of that if it recharged with light and/or movement.

I'm still saying it's not possible with a actually smart watch.

Looks like some early attempt at a smart watch.
I don't see the real utility of smartwatches, let alone this badly forged relative.

It is not an actual watch unless the battery lasts long time.

A screen is not needed to be a smart watch.

I guess we disagree, a smart watch needs to be smart or it's just a watch. And as I charge my phone and tablet everyday, it would be easy for me to charge the watch at the same time. As long as it get 18 hrs heavy use I'm fine with that. Of course longer would be better as long as there is no sacrifice of the smarts.

I have a keyring which flashes when my phone rings or gets a text, does that make it a SMART keyring?? :D

Thats not smart at all though it is a watch. A steaming turd of a watch at that price you would be better with a Pebble.

It is infinitely smarter than a normal keyring.

It is a smartwatch, but whose function I don't think I would particularly care about.

If it had sensors instead, more people would think it's useful.
