The above features are cool and mind-boggling,yet this chinese brand is better let gone than bought. There are no signs of ownership in this watch and would definitely be of those Chinese upstarts that mix quirkness with brilliance. However rich the watch may seem to you, it is simply a pain having to watch movies or videos with one arm up.The USB is not fast enough and takes aeons to get videos to be transferred to the watch.The MP4 watch is supposed to play NX-AVI format, which in practice means nothing will work unless you use the bundled software. The software doesn’t take much time to convert files, and could manage all the avi files we threw at it. However, while playing back you have to take the watch off, or else it’s damn uncomfortable. The small size of the screen only makes matters worse. While resizing, the video gets squeezed and the characters take on an elongated alien look.
You can play MP3 and WMA formats, which are done perfectly, and there’s also support for WAV. The FM radio is kinda nutty. It doesn’t auto-scan, and the reception isn’t that good! If you’re indoors, just forget about it. The player has 6 preset EQ modes and a voice recorder. The player can also read text files, but using this feature can be a pain.
Sound clarity is pretty decent and can manage through. This watch is for all James Bond enthusiasts who would go nuts over to just buy a watch that would be difficult to see time but cool on the looks and gritty on the features.
P.S: The screen automatically switches off after 2 minutes if it remains idle. The watch has to be switched on once again by pressing the MODE button continuously for about 2 seconds..
