Daily life has made us slaves of various social and notifications in general, making the smartphone an appendage of our lives. But of this moral sincerely to anyone who interests you? In fact, we are constantly searching for the perfect smartphone or technology gadget that will make life easier for us. The conjunction between the two might be using a SmartWatch like the I4PRO model, provided by the store Banggood.com Thank you personally for sending the sample and for making this review possible. But just talk and start with ours complete review of the SmartWatch I4PRO.
As always from the sales package we can already move criticism to the producer, as the product is contained in an anonymous black colored carton without any indication if not the SMARTWATCH writing on the packaging profiles which for its simplicity drifts into a certainly the value of the I4PRO. Apart from the inside we can find a SmartWatch too Instruction Manual in Chinese / English, 2 small spare screws, 1 small screwdriver to access the SIM slot, the charging cable USB with Magnetic-Type Attachment and One protective film plastic already applied to the SmartWatch display, which I removed for this review.
The SmartWatch I4PRO comes with a design already seen on this type of product not greatly distorting the general look. Strap in Medical TPU not quite soft but still resistant and that does not create any general annoyance allowing you to wear the device in any situation (weighing up to 60 grams) even while we sleep, but above all it is comfortable even in phases where sweating is intense. However, the ease with which this strap captures dust and dirt varies is to be noted. Closing well thanks to'metal ring and with two silicone loops allowing it to be worn for all types of wrists (strap width 24 mm, part length with ring 80 mm, part length with holes 130 mm).
La circular case (49 mm for a thickness of 14,50 mm) is made of galvanized aluminum with anti oxidation technology and has on the left side the grid for the small speaker while on the right side we find the multifunction button on / off and the hole for the microphone. The back of the case is a hybrid between plastic and metal, as we find the slot for SIM insertion in nano format, precisely made of metal, closed with the aid of 2 small screws that will be removed with the small screwdriver supplied in the sales package, where there are two additional spare screws. The rest of the back of the body is instead made of plastic where the heart rate sensor and of pogo pin connection to the charging cable with magnetic-type connector.
Finally on the front of the smartwatch we find the touch display type AMOLED with circular shape from 1,39 inches of capacitive type with resolution 400 x 400 pixels with technology and machining of glass 2.5D. The touch is responsive at all times and the color rendering is really good and, if necessary, also for the viewing of multimedia content.
For the I4PRO smartwatch we find one technical data sheet of all respect as they are present well 2 GB of RAM memory with a internal storage by 16 GB (not expandable), where you can store music, photos, and documents. But to weave the files think of it quad-core MediaTek MT6580 processor with 1.3 GHz clocks in conjunction with the operating system Android Lollipop 5.1. In addition to this we find in combination also one Mali GPU 400 as well as connectivity Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi e support for 3G networks. Already why our I4PRO can be used in stand alone mode, that is, simply insert the dwarf SIM inside the SmartWatch and exploit it as a real smartphone to your wrist.
So you can call, send and respond to them, see the weather, or maybe make voice searches through Google's native app, or rather use the I4PRO as a real navigation system thanks to Integrated GPS that will rely on the Google Maps application, bringing you to your destination without any uncertainty. But as mentioned earlier, the I4PRO integrates the Android 5.1 operating system and therefore you can install all sorts of applications directly from the Play Store
The interface it does not differ much from what has been seen in previous models, in any case indeed user friendly. It is possible to switch from Home to sports mode, notifications, settings and weather simply by swiping to the programmed direction. It is also possible change watchface to our SmartWatch, drawing on the myriad of devices already on your device downloading new ones directly from the integrated store. With the SmartWatch I4PRO you can do everything, call, record, watch movies, watch weather and news, use GPS to go to unknown destinations, voice searches, and more. You can also use it as a small helper for sports sessions as a walk or walk, as it will provide you with details about steps, and distance traveled but it will also detect the heart rate in real time. It must be noted that unlike other SmartWatch, the I4PRO model for the phone feature will only leverage the connectivity offered by the nano SIM, if inserted, and then connecting to the smartphone for this function is extremely useless.
Definitely not professional and perfect functionality but complementing the many other offers from the I4PRO. In fact, the pedometer overstates very much (about a 25%) the actual values while the heartbeat sensor has proved to be quite accurate. Unfortunately, this is undermined by battery integrated with 350 mAh who can guarantee you a maximum 5 hours with stress usage, that is, with all the day-to-day functionality. Otherwise with a much sharper use we will be able to reach the maximum at 11 hours while if we opt for the classic use of a simple smart micro smart clock then we can get it also at 1 day, considering that 2 hours will be required for full recharging.
A small parenthesis is dedicated to the application that is used to communicate our smartphone with I4PRO. The application brings the name of WiiWatch but its utility is practically related to zero. Once we connected our SmartWatch to the phone we could set which applications to receive notifications (practically all applications on the phone and the Play Store are supported), and set the daily goal for steps. These two features are left apart, except the screens in which the collected data on heart rate and heart rate are highlighted, but no cloud rescue is possible, and therefore, whenever the device changes, the collected data will be lost.
Finally, thank you for sending the sample again to the store Banggood.com which is a valid alternative where you can buy electronic devices of Chinese origin like this I4PRO that you will find at the price of about 95 euro. Very reasonable price compared to the features offered. Needless to compare it to a basic Apple Watch that offers at least half of the features of this I4PRO, who in my opinion only sins in the battery life and in the absence of any certification against water and dust, revealing a great personal assistant to rely on when we can not take advantage of our smartphone. So if you are interested in purchasing and want to feel the emotion of a wearable device but do not want to spend a fortune this is the product it is for you.
