Default Z01 Android 4.2 3G Smart Bluetooth Watch

Hi there,
didn't find, despite looking, any post regarding the watch I recently bought and about to receive, so take liberty to call for info if anyone has any.

The watch is sold in many sites as:
Z01 Android 4.2 3G Smart Bluetooth Watch 1.3GHZ MTK6572 Dual Core 4GB ROM Camera

Except for "Z01", no specific name or brand. The watch is merely described by its specs, as many other watches are.
The watch looks like this:
Z01 Android Watch

Does anyone have more details on it? Info on the producer / maker? I'm interested in the software it runs and the sources (I know it's gonna be hard to find any).


Update: been more lucky with my second attempt and finding more info on the Net.
Turns out this Z01 is actually the "DW08" by a Chinese company called something like DCool.

Cheers,
Ka.

@kast have you been on the Omate smartwatch forum to get more info about this watch?

There's also the Z8 thread too. This was sold as Z8 too.

As far as standalone watches this seems like the best option to date. The InWatch Z is better but costs too much for a 2G radio.

What is your experience so far?
Does it come with PlayStore?
How's the battery life?
And importantly how does it work with notifications?

One issue was it wasn't secure.

Hi there,
after a few days with it, can say I'm relatively pleased. Ok, watch is definitely "bulkier" than what the picture in the online store might suggests but it's working pretty well. With the watch forced in 2G, Wifi on (to connect when available) and moderate use, battery lasts about 1.5-2 days, which is pretty good, considering the wee battery it has.
No crashes or crazy reboots... Seems behaving quite nice. Too bad there is no way to get the kernel sources and hack it a bit.
It does come with the Play Store though and can be easily rooted.

Take care,
Ka.
