Elephone W2 photos and specs
The W2 is just like any other traditional analogue watch you might buy. The internals are mostly mechanical with the movements coming form Swiss watch makers. A metal body, leather strap and sapphire glass watch lens make up the classic design, but there is some tech lurking beneath too.
A Bluetooth 4.0 module allows the Elephone W2 to connect to your smart device for monitoring your sleep, fitness. So basically its a Xiaomi Mi Band with the look of a normal watch and the benefit of being able to tell the time.
Elephone plan to officially launch the Elephone W2 at their 15th Jan event in Shenzhen, and are already giving fans the chance to win a free watch through an in app promotion through their own Elephone app available on the Google Play Store.
