Specifically, in terms of smart voice assistants, users can use the phone’s voice assistant function to send text messages, implement voice interaction, and control compatible smart home appliances. For this, they only have to pair the watch and their smartphones. Currently, it is compatible with Siri, Xiao Ai, etc. At the same time, the new product provides many smart features on the wrist. They include offline music playback, offline payments, calls and SMS notifications, calendar reminders, social media updates, news summaries, etc.
