ZTE has decided to be guided by the current prevailing at the moment in the market smartwatch and seems to apply only watches with circular screen (The Italian you’ve bundled Moto 360!). Like pocket watches, the Axon Watch is a smartwatch with circular screen, metal box with sharp edges and a button on one of its latearles to turn on and off the screen. ¿Brought something new to the market this Axon Watch smart watches? Not at all.

In fact, when we look at the promotional photographs we can not help feeling that is extremely similar to Huawei Watch, another circular smartwatch a Chinese manufacturer that will come later this year at a price that is still unknown. If we dive into the technical specifications of this device this is what we found:

  • 4-inch screen with Gorilla Glass coverage Sapphire
  • 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB of storage
  • 300 mAh battery
  • IP67 protection against water and dust
  • Bluetooth 4.1
  • Tencent OS with gesture recognition

As you can see, the specifications are quite common and do nothing we have not already seen in other smartwatch competition. It is not known if the clock has heart rate sensor to monitor our activity, but so far has not been included among the initial specifications.

As we read on Engadget, the Axon Watch has only been announced for the Chinese market, so probably not even see it from our lands. In any case, if you like the design of the watch, I recommend make you a Huawei Watch when it arrives later this year and will also have Android Wear operating system.
