With the Atongm W008, you could let your smartphone rest at home

Posted on Feb 24 2015 - 8:43am by Yugishtha Shrivastava

There are a few things we love more than those pretty Android wearables. It might be perfectly safe to say that a smartwatch, in the time to come, could completely nullify the need of carrying a smartphone around. The Atongm W008 is the closest we have gotten so far. With a SIM-card and a microSD slot, a removable battery and a fairly nice display in place, this 50 gm watch on your wrist would never let you miss your smartphone.

With quality watches like the Moto 360, the Asus Zenwatch and the Samsung Gear line watches in the town, one rarely   pays attention to an Atongm W008 sitting in a corner. But if you are curious enough, you would find out that at $70 (Rs. 4300 approx.) this watch would be pretty much a catch. If that has got you a bit inclined, let us talk about the assets that Atongm W008 has to flaunt.

If you are someone who values subtle designs, the watch would be a turn-off. The watch is quite thick, but since the watch has to occupy a lot at the back, that is understandable. Even so, the watch comes in four different colors- black, white, silver and orange, that has to give it a certain style statement, right? The 1.54 inches display is just about satisfying. The strap is rubber-made but does not look or feel cheap. In fact, with the speakers at top and bottom and a dedicated 5 MP camera, the watch looks pretty decent.

Price & Availability

The watch is available for grabs from Gearbest for a rather pocket-friendly price of $70.15. Our readers could avail the watch for a subsidized price of $58.99 by using the following coupon code: W008.

Overview

With all its features, the watch could be a great buy at that price. The watch is currently compatible with Android and Windows phones. I like the look and the feel of the watch, it doesn’t shout out the watch’s price. With some high-end features like Anti- lost feature and sleep monitoring, you could safely put your money on the Atongm W008. We are not very sure if it is as credible as those watches created by some biggies like Motorola, Samsung and Sony but then, it certainly is worth a try.
