The inWatch Z is what I would like to call as a real phone. Why? It’s because the watch has an unusual set of features that you don’t usually find in other smartwatches. It doesn’t need to be connected to your phone nor does it require to bring your phone everywhere you go. It’s what I would like to call as a “standalone” watch that makes your life easier and more comfortable. It’s technically a phone housed inside a body of an elegant watch.
The watch packs a hardware that is somehow reminiscent of a mid-range phone. It has fast 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a big 8GB of internal storage and a sizable 1GB of RAM. The watch is waterproof up to a certain level and the screen is made from a sapphire material. It features a couple of sensors which includes, gravity sensor, magnetometer, accelerometer, pedometer, GPS as well as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. The watch also supports micro SIM card which you can insert on the left side.
The sapphire screen is very responsive and gives you access to all of the inWatch Z’s controls, functions and settings. The watch features basic activity tracking thanks to the onboard pedometer which counts your steps as you walk. The built-in camera takes decent photos and videos. The inWatch Z receives notifications, alerts, incoming calls, messages and emails really well. The watch also supports document files which includes Excel, PDF, PPT, TXT and other word file, although you can only view them.
