Today we will again talk about smart watches from China, but not about some cheap models there, but about a rather expensive representative. Meet us on our review of Smart Watch KingWear KW99 3G. The solution, of course, is not the brand segment, but not quite budgetary either. The fact that the watch is higher than any other Chinese smart clock says not only their price but also the placement of this model in the official line of the Chinese brand LEMFO.

They got a good design watch by the standards of the Chinese market, they were collected quite qualitatively, and the functions are not deprived. Are they good? Let’s deal with it.

Trying to make Smart Watch KingWear KW99 as attractive as possible to the user, the manufacturer started with packaging. Apparently, the company adheres to the rule that sales largely depend on a beautiful wrapper.

And, I must say, they chose the right path. The KingWear KW99 box is made of very dense cardboard, stylized under the skin. It looks really cute and expensive, especially in photos on the Internet. Of course, the box can be damaged during transportation, which will spoil the impression of unpacking.

When the user opens, they meet the clock in a small bag. Below them are two small boxes into which the manufacturer has placed the rest of the delivery. In one of them are a 4-pin magnetic cable charging and data transfer. Some sellers put two such wires, and, given their prevalence, this is definitely a plus.

In the kit are (depending on the seller) pretty good wireless headphones that connect seamlessly to KingWear KW99 – you can listen to music on the go without getting a smartphone. In addition, there is a small cross-head screwdriver, which is necessary to open the cover of the nano SIM compartment. A nice addition is a film on the screen, in addition to the one that has already been glued. Well, and the standard is the manual. Looks simple, only in Chinese and English, but with pictures.

KingWear KW99: Design and Appearance

By design, the KingWear KW99 is close to the classic clock with a round dial, but larger ones. The main part, that is, the edging, is made of aluminum, according to the manufacturer – anodized. On sale, there is one color solution is silver. The front part was occupied by a round screen framed by a border, on which there are marks in the form of time intervals. The display KingWear KW99, unlike most Chinese smart watches, is deprived of huge frames around. This is the sin of some smartphone manufacturers. On the right side, there is a power button, which is made in the form of a wheel, but it reacts to pressing.

Closer to the place where the strap is fastened, one can see the opening of a spoken microphone. On the left is placed only a speaker, about which there are holes. Given the design, we can say that the KingWear KW99 is not waterproof. The back of the black plastic.

Reviews of KingWear KW99 say that the lid often bursts. At the edges of the screws are visible. In the center, there is a heart rate sensor, just to the right – contacts for recharging the device. There is also a slot under the SIM-card, which is covered with a plastic plug, fastened with a screw.

The watches KingWear KW99 turned out very cute. On the arm, they look great, they also sit. Unlike cheap models, they are felt by the clock, not by mini-smartphones. The quality of assembly at a high level, there are no sloppy joints, no dangling elements. Yes, there are devices with a defect, but tell me which company managed to completely get rid of marriage?

Nevertheless, we are talking about a wristwatch, so the strap should not be the last role. The manufacturer did not come up with a bicycle, presenting one variant of a leather black strap. The mount is the most usual, to which we are accustomed since the time of Chinese watches with digital dials. Not original, but reliable and convenient. And in general, the strap is very good. It blends well, has a rough surface, which makes it fit better to the hand.

I do not think that someone will easily tear it apart, although the cases were following the reviews about KingWear KW99. And here one of the minuses of these clever clocks opens. The straps are non-replaceable. The reason for this was the GSM module, which the manufacturer placed in the strap, apparently due to the metal in the construction, which is poorly transmitting the signal. That is, the strap was torn – the watch was left without the support of nano SIM. Of course, someone can and will manage to find a way out, but you will have to find a similar strap.

KingWear KW99: Screen

New smart watches KingWear KW99 received a very good display. Installed AMOLED-matrix, which are famous for their saturated black color and low power consumption. The diagonal is 1.39 inches, the resolution is 400×400 pixels.

The picture is clear, there is no grain. The screen is bright enough to use the clock on the street in bright sunshine. Used OGS technology, which ensures that there is no air gap between the glass and the display itself.

Thanks to this, you do not have to do a few touches to open the desired application. It’s safe to say that KingWear KW99 in analisis got one of the best screens among Chinese representatives.

KingWear KW99: Hardware and Performance

As a rule, smart watches, and especially Chinese “state employees”, can not boast of a powerful “filling”. Still, these are miniature devices, in which it is problematic to install a productive processor and a large amount of memory, and this is not necessary for every user. However, KingWear KW99 is pleasantly surprised.

The smart clock is based on the processor from MediaTek MT6580. Yes-yes, the same chip, which is still often put in smartphones of the lower segment. It is 4-core, has a built-in communication module, supports the 3G standard, the main emphasis is on energy efficiency.

The graphical core is Mali-450. Also not the first freshness, but for the clock a real find. Supports resolutions up to HD. Performance MTK6580 is comparable to what the budget SnapDragon 400 demonstrates.

KingWear KW99: Battery

This certainly is not the strength of KingWear KW99, and indeed, few smart watches boast of high battery capacity. The battery is set to 400mAh, which is normal for Chinese watches but only on paper. In practice, capacity is not enough for active operation.

KingWear KW99: Operating system, connection to a smartphone

Working smart watches KingWear KW99 on Android 5.1. This is “pure” Android, not Wear, which is famous for branded devices. The system is slightly curtailed, but this did not affect the comfort of the work. In fact, we have a very small Android-smartphone with all the consequences.

Smart watches are adapted to gestures, which you quickly get used to. “Out of the box” is the Play Market, which allows you to install everything that your heart desires. Of course, do not forget about a small display and not the most productive hardware.
