Are wearables really selling? Zeaplus think so with the launch of the DM360


zeaplus watch

With the price of Android Wear devices still quite high, Chinese tech makers are still trying to break in to the market with their own cheaper alternatives. Here is the latest from Zeaplus, the DM360.

As you can see by the design and the name of the Zeaplus DM360, this is a phone that has been inspired by the Moto 360, and even boasts a similar round display, but unlike the Moto device Zeaplus aren’t running Android Wear.

Much like Android Wear devices the Zeaplus DM360 needs to be connected via Bluetooth to a smartwatch to make the most of it, but even then it lacks some core features like Google Now voice search and Google Maps navigation. Instead the watch acts as a simple pedometer, with call answering feature and message notification.

The round display is held in place with a stainless steel body which is apparently sweat and waterproof to IP53 standards. The display has a resolution of 240 x 240 and a built-in 320mAh battery powers the whole thing/

So far we are not seeing a whole lot of movement in the wearable market. Is it a market that has taken off well? Or are we all waiting for more feature packed devices to strap to our wrists?

      IP53, you can’t really call that waterproof. IP53 means it is ok if some drops come on it. no submersion. then you need atleast IP62 and if you want to swim IP67

          with IP57 you can’t swim.

          ” temporary immersion to at least 1m from bottom and 15cm from top of object ”

          My Mi Band has IP67, shower is ok, went swimming and it died after.

    I am going to wait till these OEMS get hold of android wear and start churning out their own devices

    its pointless spending money on these low end clone wearables that are essentially pedometers

    P.s

    In the article you wrote ” Much like Android Wear devices the Zeaplus DM360 needs to be connected via Bluetooth to a smartwatch to make the most of it ”

    I presume you meant connected VIA BLUETOOTH TO A SMARTPHONE

    Motorola cut the price of the Moto 360 today to $150.

    I’d rather spend the extra $50 on something tried and proven than a China clone that hasn’t been reviewed or tested by independent reviewers yet.

      I think it’s just limited time promotion price, the old model will stop selling when the next generation is available on google i/o
