We have seen dozens of smartwatches this year after Google announced its Android wear operating system earlier this year in March. Jumping to the current scenario, the smartwatch market is noticing though competition as big vendors like Samsung, LG, Motorola, Sony and Asus gear up to provide the best of Android Wear OS on their products. But there is always a need of minimal functionality smartwatch, which can just do a few things as some consumers like to have connected watches that can remind them about calls, texts, alarms, etc.

InWatch

Here comes the InWatch Pi MX4 Edition, the result of collaboration between InWatch and Meizu, which is specifically created to work with Meizu MX4 smartphone. This round dial watch will remind you about Moto 360 as the design aesthetics are similar.

Though, it is not powered by the Android Wear OS nor have any other smart OS installed on it. This is rather a “connected watch” than a smartwatch as; it only provides the functions like reminders, clock and alarm clock.

Our thoughts:

With regards to the size, it is quite too small, with not just the watch face but also with the strap, which doesn’t look good for males. It does look typically like a female’s strap, though we are yet to confirm if there is a separate bigger strap one available. With the shape of the watch, and the side, it reminds us of the Moto 360, Motorola’s smartwatch with Android Wear OS.

On tapping the screen on anywhere on the watch, two low bright lines show up on the screen, indicating the minute and hour count to show the time.

The device boasts Bluetooth connectivity and doesn’t necessarily need an app installed on your smartphone. It touts the metal design and has sapphire circular body, which has a diameter of 35mm.

According to the company, the device can last up to three to six months, and since it is not a full-featured Android Wear Smartwatch, the low battery consumption is understandable. Although, it might not have a rechargeable battery, as the company has not mentioned that, so probably, you would have to replace the battery once the juice is finished.

The InWatch Pi MX4 edition will be available in three color options, Gold, Black and Silver. It is priced at a $65 (CNY 399), while it can also be purchased as a bundled pack with Meizu MX4, which will cost you around CNY 2000 (approximately $326). While there is not much competition in this range, and if it exist, the Meizu might have an advantage with its design and pricing model.

The InWatch Pi can be pre-0rdered from FirstGrabber here, and for the early buyers, here is a coupon code to get $15 off – ilovepi
