Keep us updated alesul

Also a walk through video is available on youtube (in Chinese):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ldpTp1kZyQ

From what information I gather through the video, the watch does not run Android, instead run a custom OS (java based most likely). The battery size is 350mah, and the watch take an optional micro-sim.

The video also claim the watch is water resistant, but not water proof. Additional the sync software work mostly only with Android, iOS have very limited sync functionality.

@NeelDroid - there's the SmartQ Z watch which but its $99, however using Bitcoin you can get it for $79. Features:
3.5mm port
3 different custom ROMs
Firmaware updates
Play Store but only certain apps work
Water resistant

Refer to the thread pls.

On a different note there's the Chinese Pebble copy for around $58. Please refer to its thread.

$79 with shipping registered worldwide - it does not have a speaker, just a 3.5mm port.

Contact user adro (no paypal, bitcoin only) http://smartqwatch.com/forum/discuss...tch-lite-69usd

Note: there are two models, the lite model for $69 no with no Wifi and less RAM ...i think and the other one with Wifi. Come with a few colours.

Also a newer model (Z2 or P1 or H1, not sure what its called) is supposed to be coming out in June, unconfirmed cost is around $169, no 3,5mm port, but with speakers.

MIC/Speaker is a very useful feature. Voice to text/text to voice, voice search, voice commands and the like. This can all be done without digging that 5.4" massive phone out of your pocket every time or in cases where your hands are full or the phone is out of reach. Speaker without a MIC is silly though.

so what are the differences between U8 and U8 pro?

hardware looks different, or are there real changes?

software is newer but not that much different?

same BTNotifier app?
