My last smart watch impressed me so much, I didn’t think it could get better, but it has. Here’s a smart watch that doesn’t rely on a Bluetooth connection to a phone for anything. It is a smart phone in its own right, with all the functionality of a smart phone shrunken to the size of a large watch.
The iLepo® Andriod Smart Watch uses micro SIM and micro SD cards. To insert either, teeny tiny screws must be removed. A tiny screwdriver and one teeny tiny screw are included. Good luck if you drop the screws. They will be nearly impossible to find. Why the need for screws, I’m not even sure. My other smart watches do not have that inconvenience.
Charging requires a proprietary charging dock which I dislike because it’s one more thing to lose. Some other smart watches only require a micro USB cable.
Even if I don’t install a micro SD card, there is about 1 GB of storage space onboard. Before I even knew I could install a micro SD card, I installed two apps (McAfee and Songza). There was plenty of room.
Native apps include YouTube, camera, browser, news, texting, and more. If you don’t see what you like, download your own apps from Google Play like I did.
Making calls manually is a chore, because the keyboard keys are very tiny. Fortunately, I get the numbers right 60% of the time. The calls themselves come in clear. No one ever has trouble hearing anyone.
Yes, there’s a camera. It’s on the side of the watch face, so I need to aim at my subject like I’m a super hero. It takes photos and video which we can view and edit in the gallery. I’m impressed with the images I took.
Not only does it have Wi-Fi capability, it also boasts Bluetooth. Why Bluetooth? So we can pair it with a whole slew of devices. When we use a speaker, the music sounds superb.
I tried to pair the watch with a keyboard, since typing with fat fingers is so difficult. The keyboard paired, it did not input. Maybe that’s the fault of the keyboard, since I didn’t experience any problems with my Bluetooth earphones and speaker.
SURFING AND STREAMING
I watched YouTube videos, which stream smoothly. I also shopped on Amazon. The only problem with surfing the internet is trying to type in a search term or web address. I’m getting good at it, but those with fat fingers will be frustrated.
This watch is terrific. If they could make it a little thinner, that would be great. I might say I’d like a smaller, more feminine watch face, but it’s hard enough to see and type as it is.
My biggest complaint is the watch band, which has that tacky rubber feel. I find it hard to slip on because the band grips onto itself and the end doesn’t want to slide into the two straps that hold the band end down.
