The LEMFO LEM6 Smartwatch in test comes with the usual paper mill, the watch itself with a black rubber strap and a charging dock with a USB port.

A power adapter we are looking for in the delivery unfortunately in vain.

LEMFO LEM6: Design and Appearance

The watch LEMFO LEM6 is the first watch in my opinion, which is not directly as just clearly recognizable a smartwatch. You can tell that the design comes from the FossilGroup or Diesel. The black case does not carry too much despite the optical size and the keys do not disturb or are not pressed when I angle the hand.

LEMFO LEM6 Review: Serious Android Smartwatch with Low Price 2017

The crown in the middle on the right can be pressed to waken the clock or to display the installed apps and be rotated to scroll through the apps or menus.

The four buttons above and below can easily be assigned to any app and are thus shortcuts to these apps. Ideal for controlling the Smarthome via IFTTT or Tasker etc.

On the opposite side is the speaker, which got donated directly under the speaker grille the embossed LEMFO logo.

The 1.4-inch display is super sharp because of the resolution of 400 by 400 pixels and adjusts the brightness automatically to the environmental conditions.

However, between the housing and the actual display around a 2mm black edge. This is not noticeable after a short acclimatization phase and fits easily to the somewhat bulky appearance of the smartwatch.

The bracelets are 24mm wide and equipped with a quick release and can be exchanged in this way on request. Again, you can see the manufacturer influence very nicely, because the band is not only plain brown, but darker to the edges and got as accents black screws and fasteners (again with LEMFO logo) mounted.

The necessary energy is provided by a 550mAh battery. For this, LEMFO adds a small docking station with a USB port. A power supply must be organized separately. The charging process takes about 2 hours and is signaled by a red LED on the watch itself on the watch face and on the USB connector.

In the evening, after the third or fourth charge cycle, I still had around 30-40 percent on a normal day. This also means a stressful day should be overcome and as with almost every smartwatch also at the same time, that even in the evening has to power to guarantee a full next day.

The watch is certified to IP67. This means that the manufacturer allows a temporary submergence in water. But you should also be aware that everything is very flexible. Soapy water under the steaming shower or salt water in the sea is usually not included in this certification.

In addition to the assignable buttons on the watch, LEMFO LEM6 in analisis has also installed so-called filters. These overlay the display as overlays and can thus, for example, break the display virtually, or display the weather, or color the display with a color shimmer, as is the case with the normal analog watches from Diesel.

The trigger is then, for example, that you should move again or have accumulated some notifications, etc.

LEMFO LEM6: Display or Screen

In terms of display size, the models are shown here take only 1-2 mm. The point for the resolution, however, definitely goes to Full Guard. The S3 has 360 × 360 pixels, while the LEMFO LEM6 has 400 × 400 pixels. The difference can actually be seen clearly.

Also, here you can find AMOLED technology display, so the pictures look awesome and amazing like any Samsung tech’s displays.

LEMFO LEM6: Hardware and Performance

So, LEMFO LEM6 in the review has MediaTek MTK6580 with Quad-Core processor at 1.0GHz. Also, there are 1 GB of RAM and you can use 16 GB of internal storage. I can say it really nice specs for budget watch now.

The Huawei Watch was my previous Android watches since it has a long endurance of the battery for an Android watch and had already integrated loudspeaker and microphone for telephony at the time of release. In addition, it also has a heart rate monitor on the bottom, but a charging dock with pins, which often does not load the first time you hang up the clock.

LEMFO LEM6: Software

LEMFO LEM6 has packed some pretty watch faces right on the start of the watch. The everywhere on the screenshots and advertising photos apparent Heads Up Watchface with the display, for example. It can be configured very extensively.

There is still a bit rebellious configuration menu of the Watchfaces. It’s a bit tricky to set the HUD. If I take after the watch adjustment and activation of the HUD still other settings, then the HUD disabled again. Just long press on the watch face and activate the HUD and directly wipe away again to the right and the HUD is retained. There was also a day after my unboxing already an update of the Watchfaces. Here’s how it works.

Apart from that, there is also the Watchface “Build a dial”, which is just as extensively customizable. Everything works great here. I took a few screenshots of the Build dial-Watchfaces settings to better understand what I’m writing here.

LEMFO LEM6: Other Features

Watchfaces in the photos here in this post are the origin and pre-installed LEMFO LEM6 with HUD display and the other the Literal Watchface, which displays the time in the plain text.

Sponsors for footsteps or count calories are of course also here on board.

Calls via a Bluetooth paired smartphone is possible. There’s nothing to stand in the way of the good old Michael Knight from Knight Rider. the feature is disabled by default and has to be activated via Settings → Connectivity → Bluetooth → Play voice call on Smartwatch.

Also, you can use SIM slot card for 3G calls, messages or other features to call your friend or relatives. The connectivity is normal, and calls are good.

LEMFO LEM6 Review: Serious Android Smartwatch with Low Price 2017

The watch is IP67 certified and should withstand a “temporary immersion” in water.

LEMFO LEM6: Conclusions and Reviews

Personally, I opted for the look and feel of the LEMFO LEM6 in our review and sold the Gear S3 again. I like Android OS better than others.

LEMFO LEM6 Review: Serious Android Smartwatch with Low Price 2017

Striking it will be more in the bracelets looks nice. The LEMFO LEM6 have already treated here. It is aimed more at the fashion people who simply watch in the normal want to have look. Of course, that is a matter of taste and my personal impression.

LEMFO LEM6: Price and Where to buy cheaper?

LEMFO LEM6 Review: Serious Android Smartwatch with Low Price 2017

The price of currently LEMFO LEM6 just under $100. So for a small amount you get a good watch with great performance and autonomy. I think this is a good choice.
