Today I will present a new generation of smartwatch called IQI I8 in our review. This is not the first smartwatch that I have in my test but it must be said that it is one of the best I have.
Its AMOLED screen is really pure beauty with a resolution of 400 x 400 pixels is just beautiful.
I use this watch for almost two weeks now alternating with others that you will soon see items, this is one of my favorites.
The big advantage is the possibility of having a watch 100% autonomous because it will be possible to put the SIM card in the watch or like me a second (view prices very interesting currently on the package unless two euros).
Of course, this watch is as good for a man as for a woman.
You can find it on their shop for $116.99 by clicking directly on the banner below or otherwise in the part of my good plans which I update very regularly. So, let’s see the main specs of IQI I8.
IQI I8: Specifications
As you will see, this watch ranks among the most powerful features of the market because it is very rare to find an identical resolution of this size but also with 1 GB of RAM that allows it not to kneel with some greedy resource applications.
|Display:||1.39 inches AMOLED with 400 x 400 pixels|
|Connectivity:||Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac,3G, 4G, Bluetooth 4.0|
|Connections:||Magnetic charging USB|
IQI I8: Design and Appearance
The IQI watch is delivered in a box-shaped box. Only the logo and the name of the mark is written on the cover of the latter.
As we can see on a front view, she arrived with a protective film that certainly is not so well adjusted finally to less than a millimeter but perfectly fulfilled its role and it is asked.
To have this watch IQI I8 in the test practically every day, his bracelet is really very pleasant to touch and reach.
I thought that with the plastic and perspiration I would have some bracelet itching but not at all.
Yet I tested it on my last weekend in Seville at over 40°C in the shade but nothing at all that is a good thing.
In the photo below, we can see the difference between the two colors that blend perfectly between red and black.
In passing, we will distinguish the small holes drilled that serve to pass the sound of the tiny speaker.
On the opposite side, we find the button on or off the screen but in the middle is the 2.0 MP camera that will be seen later.
On the back there are several things of IQI I8:
- The heart rate sensor.
- The charging connector.
- The small hatch allowing access to the Nano SIM card.
As can be seen, the quality of the back, as well as the watch itself, is really well finished as well as the adjustments. We really have to do at the high end.
Once opened with the little screwdriver, we have as I told you access to insert the Nano-SIM card which is very useful when you do not want to bother with the one but while remaining reachable.
Be careful not to lose the small screw because it gets lost very easily.
The quality of the closure is also stainless steel which has not one but two closures and its ring.
Here is what it gives on my handle and as we can see it is really not that big for a man.
IQI I8: Usage and Software
From the start, the presentation logo puts us in the mouth with a very bright screen.
The first start, as for all connected objects, you will have to choose your language from the list proposed and finally click on “Confirm”.
On the next page of IQI I8, we are asked to scan the QR Code with our Smartphone to download the application. This one sends us on a web page where it will be enough to download.
On the other hand an important point, one must not forget to check the permission to install applications from unknown sources otherwise it will not be possible to install it. This is to be done once because it is a line to activate.
If, however, you have not had time to scan the QR Code, simply search for it in the watch settings.
Once done here we are on the home page of origin which it will be possible to change the wallpaper among those proposed by the watch or to download.
By making a slide down, it will make us appear telling us:
- Today’s date.
- The day of the week.
- If a SIM card is installed or not.
- Time in AM/PM format.
- The link between the watch and the Smartphone if it is established or not.
- The percentage of remaining battery.
On this same page, by making a slide to the left we will have quick access to certain features
- Silence mode or the opposite.
- Allows activating or not when one moves the arm to have the time of display.
- Pass the watch in airplane mode.
- Enable or disable cellular data mode
- Activate or not the GPS.
- Adjust the brightness among three choices (Low, Medium and High).
- Enable or disable Bluetooth.
- Enable or disable Wi-Fi
And again a slide to the left of IQI I8 in the test, we arrive on the page of the pedometer that will tell us the number of steps and the number of kilometers.
As we can see the pairing is really very easily done finally nothing very difficult just to make sure that the two association codes are identical.
Once paired, you will receive the notifications you want. If you have not seen the notification that has just appeared, just make a slide to the right to find it and another slide to delete it until you see “No notifications”.
As you can see, it will be possible to download applications from the PlayStore but some will be difficult to use because of the rounded shape of the screen.
Regarding geolocation, it is very accurate but it will be difficult to always use the fact that its screen does not display the entire surface of the various buttons.
Once you have installed the Nano SIM card in the watch, it will be possible to phone either via the contacts that you have previously synchronized in Bluetooth or via the conventional dialing. It will also be possible to send SMS messages as well as to receive them.
Although the keyboard is small and my big fingers, I can write very well, of course, taking his time because it is very easy to press two keys at the same time.
Regarding the quality of the camera, I admit to being blown away by the quality despite being the only 2.0-megapixels camera.
As you can see in the picture taken on the watch, the rendering of colors is really the nice with always my little figurine as an example.
Here’s what it gives when imported. As you can see the rendering is really not bad at all for a small sensor.
IQI I8: Connectivity
Another great product that sent me to test of IQI I8 with one of the latest OS from Android that is done on connected watches since it is version 7.0.
For those looking for this type of watch, I can only advise you because it meets my needs perfectly.
As for the feedback of notifications, it also works great but will have to be careful to put the one that you need via the application installed because otherwise, the battery will not hold the day by having everything started and in addition to GPS.
IQI I8: Conclusions and Reviews
In conclusion, I would like to note that the IQI I8 proved to be a good one. Here we met a good quality and bright screen with AMOLED.
Also, productivity and performance have to be good and we did not notice any delays.
In general, this is a quality watch that got almost one of the latest operating system running Android 7.0.
The design and build quality are good, so here I have no questions. Let’s talk about the price.
IQI I8: Price and Where to buy cheaper?
And now one of the main questions has come, what is the price?
