First impression of the GT08 Watch
The GT08 Smartwatch comes in a chic, hinged cardboard box therefore. In addition to the smartwatch, the package included a USB ribbon charging cable, a small 350mAh Li-Po battery and an operating manual in English and Chinese.
The watch looks very much like the model of the big apple company. Although Google Android Wear was not used as the operating system, an Android version adapted for Mediatek processors runs on the clock. Incidentally, thanks to the integrated SIM card slot, you can also use the smartwatch like a small smartphone. Telephony and surfing are thus easily possible. By the way, surfing works only via GPRS.
Regarding the processing, there is nothing to moan. Unclean processed places I could not discover on the whole Smartwatch. The bracelet is made of silicone, yet feels very good on the skin and can be easily closed by two pressure points. Also, the back can still be tightly closed after repeated removal. Except for the cap for the micro USB port, the power button and the back, the housing is made entirely of metal.
The smartwatch weighs 205g and is therefore still comfortable to wear. It looks by its size of 48x40x11.8mm also not oversized and looks even on narrower wrists very well.
Although the operating instructions are not in German, commissioning is easy. First, the back is to be solved, which works well with a fingernail. Then you can insert a SIM card, but you do not have to. The SIM card is only for additional functions such as calling or surfing with the smartwatch. Finally, insert the battery and press the power button.
The watch is similar to a smartphone to use. To create a link with the smartphone / tablet (Android) you need an additional app. In the official Playstore, I found an app called 'Mediatek SmartDevice' that allowed me to easily connect the smartphone to my watch. The manual also contains a link to an alternative app that should work similarly.
Incidentally, the GT08 can also be used with iOS. However, I do not know how to proceed here because I do not have an iOS device.
The watch has many features. Here are some that I particularly like:
As already mentioned, one can telephone with inserted SIM card and also over GPRS to surf. In addition, you can forward the notifications of the smartphone directly to the clock. For example, if you receive an SMS or a WhatsApp message, it will be displayed on the clock at the same time.
In addition, the clock has a 0.3 megapixel camera, a pedometer, a sleep tracker and a built-in radio. A media player for listening to music is also part of the game. The GT08 has a total of 3 Themes to customize the background and 3 Watch Faces. The best you look at my video, so you get a rough overview.
