Alcatel OneTouch has launched OneTouch Watch, the company’s smartwatch in India on Flipkart. It was introduced at the CES 2015 earlier this year and has a 1.22 inch (240 x 240 pixels) touchscreen display, is powered by a STM429 chipset, runs on proprietary OS and uses a companion app installed on the phone to connect from either iOS or Android. The app allows you to choose the notifications that appear on your watch, adjust your watch face and see health data collected by the watch.
It can also monitor daily activities like sleep, heart rate, calories burnt and more. It is dust and water-resistant with IP67 ratings. It has Raise to See feature. Touching the WATCH’s screen activates a multimedia remote control. This lets users control music, take pictures from their phone from a distance or make their phone ring in order to locate it. The Watch has an integrated USB built into its band that lets you charge the watch easily even from a laptop or a PC.
