iNew, once a very popular Chinese phone maker (shot to fame with the elegant V3), is attempting to buy back its lost audience.
For that, the company has announced a new smartwatch, the iNew H-One. A lot of phone makers in China are now also producing smartwatches; this comes at a time when critics still think there’s a way to go before the smartwatch industry matures.
Nonetheless, coming back to the H-One. Unlike the bunch of budget smartwatches that have dawned the Chinese market of late, the H-One doesn’t work on the MediaTek MT250xx series of chipsets, but instead uses the Texas Instruments 2640 chip.
The display atop the iNew H-One is a 1.54-inch, 240 x 240p panel, covered all four sides in stainless steel. The dial measures 53 x 41 x 11.25 mm, and houses a 3.8v, 220mAh battery.
The H-One touts itself as a ‘health watch’, for besides sleep, activity and heart rate monitoring, the watch is also claimed to have the ability to measure blood pressure.
There’s no word on the pricing yet. Keep watching this space for more!
