Oukitel A29 wants you to take calls on the wrist


oukitel a29

Ever wanted to head out for the day and leave your phone behind but make sure you don’t miss any calls? Oukitel hope so so are producing the Oukitel A29 watch with call support.

The Oukitel A29 smartwatch ticks all the usual boxes when it comes to the recent crop of wearables. It comes with a sapphire glass touch display (240 x 240 resolution) Mediatek MT2502C CPU, 128MB memory and 64GB RAM. It can also perform the usual notification and sports/heart rate monitoring duties too when paired to an Android or iOS device.

The final trick the A29 offers though is GSM phone call support, that is making calls on the watch itself via internal SIM cards, not though a connected smartphone.

We’re not sure what the A29 is going to sell at but it does come with a stainless steel body and leather strap so you won’t feel sill when out at the country-club.

There are already a ton of wearable on the market from China, but we are still waiting for a standout device that brings something new to the market, What features would make you pick up a Chinese smartwatch?

    I want GPS more than anything else and something of and OS but Android seems to need to many resources and uses too much power.
    I just want GPS and something where I can have apps, maybe even 3G … E-ink would also be great.

    At least 72h battery life, with notifications, time and alarms and (a few) eventual calls. Even so, I would find it annoying to charge that much my watch. Yeah, make the display eInk (color?) and try to get full week (7 days!) usage.

    I want Android Wear, not some crappy MTK platform. I surely don’t need the GSM function. If you want to talk from your wrist you can still do it through bluetooth. Even the 10$ U8 watch can do that. (you can get the U8 from GetOne app for 10$+1$ shipping)

    Android wear // Visio call thru BT connectivity with a phone // And last but not least : a laser able to cut steel like James Bond’s

    there are lots of these sorts of phones on the market.. I’m looking for a ton of features at a cheap price and the way it is going I think I might soon find one.

    specifically i want:

    * waterproof
    * outdoor brightness
    * TF microSD/nano sim
    * GPS
    * Passameter
    * heart rate monitor
    * 2-axis (2 x 3d) accelerometers
    * bluetooth 4
    * stopwatch and alarm
    * can be driven with android
    * anti loss
    * rest alarm

    The Xgody W90 smartwatch is almost what I want really, but no heart rate monitor and I’m not clear if it comes with GPS or not. I’ve seen claims both ways, nothing definitive. Honestly, at $30, I might get it anyway

      I’m almost sure it doesn’t have any GPS. It might have some sort of assisted positioning based on GSM but even that might be missing.
      As for the hardware the claims are usually wrong… all of these cheap ( under $40 ) watches are based on either the MT6260 or the MT6261DA SOCs. These SOCs have their own RAM and even their own flash.
      The MT6261 DA has 32Mb of RAM and flash built into it. Careful though that’s Mbits and you need to divide by 8 to get the 4 MB of RAM and flash it has. That’s how much the watches based on it have too though some might offer SD card capabilities and that’s where the huge ( potential ) flash size comes from.
      The MT6260 usually comes with 64 – 128 Mb of RAM and flash so that’s 8-16 MB
