NO.1 G8 Smartwatch to feature SIM Card Slot and Power Saving Modes


No.1 G8

NO.1 is back with yet another SIM card equippable smartwatch after several ones that did not sport this feature. We’re talking about the NO.1 G8 smartwatch, let’s learn more about it!

No.1 G8

The NO.1 G8 comes with a sporty design and a software that allows you to choose between three modes to save power: Phone mode, Bracelet mode and Watch mode. Obviously, the first one will allow you to receive calls on your watch, assuming you’ve inserted a SIM card; in Bracelet mode the G8 will track all your movements and stats that you can then view on your smartphone through an app; lastly, Watch mode is exactly what you think of, the smartwatch will only work as a watch, only showing you the time and saving battery, in this mode the watch can last up to 5 days.

The NO.1 G8 features Bluetooth 4.0 and works on Android and IOS systems. It has a second-generation heart rate sensor for more accurate readings and the SIM card slot is of the Nano kind.

You can learn more about the NO.1 G8 smartwatch on their official website.

    This model sounds mildly interesting with the “watch” mode feature. A proper review by your guys would help to decide if the smart features are workable.

      This watch is pure garbage. I struggle to find 1 feature that is worth its price tag. Sure, you will say, what did you expect for a sub $40 watch?

      What I expect is minimum quality testing. I assure you this didn’t happen at the No.1 laboratories. From the USB cable (which cannot be replaced with a normal USB micro-b because of a longer metal end of the supplied cable – I tried this) to the inability to update the watch faces (with a cryptic failed-to-install error in the Mediatek SmartDevice app), to the futile applications like the massager (WTF is that? A vibrating massage for your wrist!) or the minuscule calendar (where you can only view a static month-by-month calendar)

      Online reviews said that for its price, it is good value to be used as a normal watch. I tell you, not even that is worth your money. 2 of the supplied 3 watch faces are difficult to read, and the one that works better is not a face I would be happy to look at. Either invest in a high-end device, or give a donation to a charity.

    @Tom Brease

    Are you able to confirm if GPS is in-built in this, or if it is only available via pairing with a smart-phone? Their website is not clear about this.

      Replying to myself, after getting this watch. It is not available, neither in built, nor through pairing.
