Zeblaze Thor Smartwatch

Zeblaze THOR - sporty smartwatch with AMOLED display

After the extremely successful “Zeblaze Blitz”, the smartwatch manufacturer “Zeblaze” is releasing the “Zeblaze THOR”, a sporty smartwatch with a telephony function, AMOLED display and other interesting features. Which features these are and how this smart wearable is to be assessed, more on this in this article.

Sporty design

The appearance of the Zeblaze THOR already shows that this smartwatch is primarily aimed at sporty users. Compared to its predecessor, the Zeblaze Blitz, the overall design is rounder and less angular. The adjustable bracelet is made of breathable silicone and is closed with a pin buckle. The watch case is mostly made of stainless steel and measures 13 mm in thickness and 45 mm in diameter. 

AMOLED display

AMOLED display features

The circular display is of the Super AMOLED type and has a diagonal of 1.4 inches. The resolution is 400 x 400 pixels, which means a point density of 326 DPI is achieved. As a result, individual pixels are no longer recognizable. Another advantage of an AMOLED panel is the particularly rich colors. The fact that the AMOLED display does not require any background lighting and that each pixel illuminates itself as required means that a particularly precise black level can be generated. In this case, the pixels simply remain switched off. Another advantage over a conventional LCD is the lower energy consumption when displaying a lot of black. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3, which has already proven to be particularly shock-resistant and scratch-resistant in other devices.

MediaTek processor

hardware Features

In terms of hardware, the Zeblaze THOR is equipped similar to a smartphone. The processor comes from MediaTek and is called "MTK6580". This processor was already used in the previous model and is a system-on-chip that is often used in Chinese smartwatches. The clock speed of the quad-core processor is 1.4 GHz. In addition, the system is equipped with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. A memory expansion option using an SD memory card is not supported.

Telephony, WiFi and GPS


Even a SIM card can be inserted, which means that the smartwatch can be used to make calls in the 2G and 3G cellular networks. The Zeblaze THOR has built in a microphone and a loudspeaker for this purpose. Another feature is the WiFi function. Connected to the WLAN, you can browse the web like a smartphone and even download apps from the Google Play Store. The operating system is based on Android 5.1, so there are hardly any limits. If you want to navigate with the watch on your wrist, the Zeblaze Smartwatch offers an integrated GPS module. Google Maps is already pre-installed and can be used extensively.

Sport, camera and battery

Battery life

The Zeblaze THOR has preinstalled several fitness apps for sporting activities. In addition to a pedometer, there is also a heart rate sensor that measures the heart rate using a photodiode and a green LED. A total of 20 applications from different categories are preinstalled. Various watch faces are also already on the smartwatch and can be changed using a quick selection. Alternatively, you can also load your own watch faces directly onto the watch. A rather unusual feature for smartwatches is a small 2 megapixel camera on the edge of the case. In addition to interpolated 5 megapixel images, this also enables videos to be recorded. The battery has a capacity of 350 mAh. Comparable systems have shown that one charge of the battery is sufficient for one day of battery life, depending on the intensity of use.

    I'm looking for a smartwatch that stays permanently connected to my mobile phone "le max 2" and that I can use this phone to send messages such as Whatsapp, Threema, etc.

      Hi Robin, the disconnection is mostly due to the energy saving functions of the clock / connected smartphone. I currently use e.g. the Huami Amazfit Pace Smartwatch ( ) and with the right options I have no problems with disconnections. Usually every watch supports this as well.

    Hi, I would be very interested in whether it is already foreseeable when you have the good piece or accordingly the test report follows. I am still quite undecided whether I can buy the Thor without hesitation or not.

    according to several tests with this part, the software is the obstacle to buying - "wiiwear"
    The battery should also be underground - 350 mAh, which also saved 🙁
    for a Kamrera that no one needs
    All in all, it is not worthy of any 100 Euronen

    Hello, here's an update for the battery. It is 500 mAh and not 350.

      Hi Dirk, I think you're confusing something. The article deals with the old Zeblaze THOR, which has only one 350 mAh battery. The new model is called Zeblaze THOR Pro and has a 500 mAh battery. But I will soon write an article about the new model and possibly also order a test copy. ????
