I was in the lookout for a cheap yet decent Chinese smartwatch recently. I know there are plenty of options in the market right now, with companies like ZeBlaze, No.1 coming up with so many options etc. So, finding a decent one was a tough job, but then I decided to check out the ZeBlaze Blitz smartwatch. The watch’s sporty design caught my attention and the features seemed pretty decent as well. Fast forward a few weeks, and today, I’ve got my ZeBlaze Blitz smartwatch.
First of all, I would like to thank Gearbest for sending in this unit for review. You can find the ZeBlaze Blitz on their website at just $89.99 during the promotional period. Check it out from the link below.
So, here I am, with the ZeBlaze Blitz. The watch looks very sporty, something that I like, and comes in two color options, gray and orange. Do note that when they say gray, it’s not actually gray. The one that I’ve got my hands on comes with a brownish shade. But it’s still good looking. Just check out the images and you’ll understand what I’m saying.
The box contains pretty much everything that you need, starting from the watch to the charging module (with a small cable that you can connect to any smartphone charger), user manual in English and a screwdriver with four extra screws for the back plate (in case you lose any).
You just have to long press the physical button (the only one present on the watch) to boot up. It’s running Android 5.1 Lollipop. So, it’s your standard Android OS and not Android Wear. With Android OS on board, the watch can basically function like a regular smartphone. You just have to insert a SIM inside (single Nano SIM) by removing the back plate.
The watch is made out of plastic, but it doesn’t feel cheap. However, the only button on the watch is made out of metal and works well. Also, the back plate of the watch is made out of metal as well. The back features the heart rate sensor as well as the charging pins.
Overall a pretty good watch. It comes with many watch faces (will check all of them in the review) and some of them are really good, like the one in the first picture.
Now, I’ll be checking out the features for the next couple of days. Wait for my review soon. Meanwhile, if you would like me to check out anything specific in the watch, you can mention that in the comments section below.
