What a coincidence! I came across this watch for the first time today and found this thread when I started browsing about it.
It looks like a nice watch for only $29! I am really considering jumping in on the pre-sale...
Have you found any other info about it or "real-life" pictures?
Anyway, here is the manufacturers own productpage: http://ulefone.com/products/uwear/features.html
And the Gearbest productpage: http://www.gearbest.com/smart-watches/pp_225970.html
The pre-sale lasts untill 09/30 so I expect that reviews will pop up around that time. :)

Mhh.... Wish I had seen that video before ordering. Payed 23usd,didn't expect much but the UI is embarrassing (suppose that's why they tried to focus on other things in the video.... and that's why there aren't any real-life pictures or videos beside that. At least I haven't seen other).
It would be embarrassing for me to go out with that on my wrist. That's not a smart watch, that's a crappy dumband with a screen made to look like a watch(the apple watch). The market is full of crap like that selling for ~ same price, offering same functions. Nothing new under the sun.
Not really a fan of pre-sale but the low price got me this time.
Shipping starts after sep 30 and will probably arrive at the end of next month....not a problem after seeing the video.

Dont think it that horrible really. Its 23 bucks. I got mine for 18. You cant have everything. This will be fine for me to wear at work with all the chemicals and ****. Its gonna break anyway better this than the 200 dollar moto 360 i'm looking at.

I'm more annoyed by the ****ty screen. They could've at least managed a 240x240 like the GT08, and that isnt much more expensive.

Well, to tell you the truth I was more angry with myself for buying something without seeing at least one real life video & generally falling for such a cheap marketing campaign(I have to admit that the ulefone/gearbest/everbuying campaign was quite impressive in terms of "quantity")
When I said "embarrassing" that also included the ****ty screen.

Anyway, everbuying agreed to cancel my order/full refund.

Hello, can you tell me if the watch receive email (Exchange server), notifications, can you try?
thanks.

Hi. U get notifications of SMS, WhatsApp, gmail, Facebook. I don't have exchange email, but I am sure it will put it through. But, you get only name and title of message, not the entire message. Only for SMS you get the entire message.

The app, fundo companion(registers health information, and needs Chinese registration...), is still in beta, and has bugs. So I removed it. Now i only use BT notifier.

Funny gadget, battery lasts a few hours, and I will not get used to talk to my watch ;)

    Ok guys I contact ulefone and they give me an answer.
    They will release a new update maybe and they will remove altimeter barometer and things that don't work. I asked for this and they will fix it maybe with a new update firmware.
    I also asked to add some more language support like greek characters. but they say the hardware is limited... so I ask them if they can release 2 roms supporting different languages...
    We will see soon I hope...

    Thanks Vamire
    After installing both the 32bit and 64bit drivers in the Windows 7 folder (using administrator privileges) I finally got Device Manager to recognise the watch and show the COM port (mine was 7).
    Attempted to flash the device and after about 40 minutes, the software program reported "incorrect SML file for this phone. Stop now" ??
    I stopped the flash program and started the watch

    Success!!!! I too have stopwatch and power-save options.

    Seems the flash did work after all. Now we just need to discover how to fully realise the watch's potential with different icons, wallpapers, sounds etc.

    Thanks again..
