Although smartphones continue to be one of the cornerstones of our society, there is no doubt that wearables and other accessories for complementary use continue to gain more and more presence.
Something that is leading to the offer becoming bigger and more competitive, with the arrival of models like the new ZTE Watch Live, which aim to break the market with a smartwatch with an entry price and premium features.
Starting with its format, we find a 1.3-inch TFT screen with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels that once again leaves behind the classic circular sphere design for a rectangular case, better optimized for touch use.
Although its size does not mean that it maintains a fairly lightweight, which will barely reach 35.7 grams; and a solid structure that is quite resistant, backed by other certifications for resistance to dust and water IP68.
And it is that this smartwatch is designed mainly for the sports public, with up to 12 pre-installed sports programs, including common modes such as walking and running, and more specific ones such as skiing, swimming, cycling, or skipping, among others.
Other functions to highlight, in addition to the usual ones to show notifications, movement warnings, sleep and heart rate monitoring, or the power to act as a remote trigger, the ZTE Watch Live incorporates the measurement of blood oxygen saturation, a feature quite in demand among the latest models, and usually relegated to the higher-priced premium models.
Although undoubtedly the point at which this smartwatch stands out is undoubtedly its autonomy, promising a useful life of up to 21 days on a single charge. A figure that in addition to being tremendously high for this type of device, would be established as one of the highest available, competing directly with the Amazfit.
Availability and price
Currently available for pre-purchase on the official website of the brand, the ZTE Watch Live will begin to be distributed from December 3 under a tremendously cheap price of only 229 yuan, approximately 29 euros at the exchange rate.
Unfortunately, for the moment it seems that its availability will be limited exclusively to the Chinese market, although as we have seen with other previous products, there would still be room for its future arrival on the international market.
