There is another Apple Watch lookalike smartwatch. Coming from Meizu, the Meizu Watch is the handset maker’s first true smartwatch after its 2016 hybrid smartwatch.

Since the Meizu Watch look is very Apple Watch-ish, there’s nothing to say about the design. It is worthy to note though, it is available only in 46 mm. So, anyone who love to have one, will have to put up with the chunk.

Anyways, the watch runs on Meizu’s Flyme for watch OS and powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 4100 chip.

It is an eSIM watch, allowing for calls from the watch itself and it is equipped with a 430 mAh battery that Meizu said could lasts up to 36 hours on a single charge. The watch has mCharge fast charge which affords a day use with just 15 minutes of charging.

Other notables include 60 Hz 1.78-inch AMOLED touch display (368 by 448 pixels, 326 ppi), Corning Gorilla Glass 2.5D, 1 GB memory and 8 GB storage, aluminum alloy case with ceramic case back, fluororubber watch band, built-in WLAN 2.4 GHz and Bluetooth 4.2, built-in GPS (GPS, GLONASS, BDS, QZSS), and the usual suspect of sensors, including sensors for 24/7 heart rate monitoring as well as blood oxygen monitoring.

Meizu said the watch is swim-friendly, though it did not provide an IP rating. Strangely, the watch can be unlock whenever user unlocks their Meizu smartphone. Why? I do not know. I never lock my smartwatch because, it is a freaking watch. Should it even be locked?

Also featured are SOS functionality, Meizu’s own voice assistant Aicy, Find My Watch function, and oh, charging is via pogo pins with magnetic attachment. Kind of dated, if you ask me.
