20,000 piece of Ulefone uWear now up for presale


Ulefone begin presales of their first wearable with the first 20,000 watches being offered at a special introduction price of only $29.99.

If you take a look at the number of wearables on the market now you might believe that the market is thriving, but the reality is that many consumers are still not convinced about current generation smartwatches.

Android Wear devices are by far the most advanced and feature packed, but it is hard to justify spending a couple of hundred $ on a watch that will be obsolete in a few months. Therefore more customers have been checking out what China has to offer.

Current Chinese wearables, like the new Ulefone uWatch, might not come with Android Wear OS, but in all fairness offer many of the same features. Call notification and answering, SMS notification, health and sleep monitoring, camera control etc are all available and a much lower pricing.

Ulefone are just starting with their wearable range with the 2.5D glass and alloy uWear, but at only $29.99 it is a low priced device and a neat introduction to the wearable market, but is it affordable enough to tempt you?

    Is that China only or something? I don’t see any presale info on the site.

    Really looks like the cheap UI I want to stay away from.

    It is not about the price per se but rather the functionality of these watches. What is the point of a bug ridden $30 time piece?

    Mi Band does the same for half the price and longer battery, plus you don’t have to fear a broken screen, the only downside is that Xiaomi has removed the multicolor led from the new 1.1 mi bands being shipped.

    On gearbest you can get it for 22.99$ with the “uwear” coupon code. But from what I see it isn’t worth it even at that price – choppy animations, low resolution, nothing exceptional. For 15$ you can get some version of the U8 which is similar

    By “20,000 people have pre-ordered” they want to say they have sold 20,000 during presale. Haha Robinhood, you are screwing up with them. http://blog.ulefone.com/video-full-preview-of-ulefone-uwear-the-bluetooth-smartwatch/
