The $12 Smart Watch - Does It Suck?

so a while back I did a video a does it

suck video about an inexpensive

SmartWatch 15 not 50 trying to determine

if anybody should be buying these things

but of course that was two years ago I

need to revisit this subject matter and

purchase some inexpensive smartwatches

from Amazon and see if they're any good

this one on the right I believe I paid

1199 for and then this one over here

closer to 20 incredibly inexpensive

let's find out if these cheapo

smartwatches are any good or do they

suck let's start with the cheap one 1199

how do they make this Perla even if it

even if it's terrible it feels so lit

already man it's got like this bronze

color there's a button on the front it

is a camera up on the top microUSB over

here to charge it up that looks like a

microphone beside the camera and there's

a speaker in it too they put that all in

there for 11 bucks charge the watch pair

the Bluetooth watch to use some apps on

the watch insert a SIM oh my Jack are

you seeing that a sim and/or micro SD

card what is this a phone as well yeah I

see an IMEI number here you're also

making phone calls with this thing does

this thing have any juice in it

something this cheap is gonna have to be

charged let's be honest with ourselves

here so that one's charging up let's

check out the second unit here this one

is twice as much money but the question

is is it twice as good oh this one is

kind of more like the Apple watch I

think yeah it looks a little more like

an Apple watch different style class

also a camera speaker unit over here a

digital crown I'm not so certain that

this operates the same way likely no but

the back of this one comes off also

inside it looks almost identical same

kind of internal setup something tells

me this one's dead too


alright this guy has some juice now this

is the cheapest of the cheap let's boot

it up let's have some fun who knows this

could be the killer do mine yeah yeah

that's sound like Radiohead for a second

it has a strong vibration to it also

look at this touchscreen add some

contacts yes it has a dilute because it

has a SIM card slot so you could this

could be your whole phone right here

messaging phone book call log remote

capture here's the camera was this is a

little calculator in here remember a

calculator watch how does that guy get a

bring on into the test I know who you

were who you are you haven't changed one


started out with those tests and now now

what are you calculating huh camera

there's the camera right there oh my

goodness it points like pop or is it

point no matter what I do look at that

angle insert a memory card no storage at

all the old premium 8 gig there we go 8

gigs of storage here we go the elegant

watch face right there I am I did it

it's the worst quality photo I've ever

taken in this entire in my entire

history little spy cam on there how is

it $11 your quote wow sound recorder we

try that check check one two

hello there welcome to the Dark Side of

the Moon population Jack that works you

get an idea you're out and about you get

an idea you know a little brainstorm

session pedometer sleep monitor Facebook

Twitter whatsapp please inserting so

this thing doesn't have Wi-Fi Bluetooth

what happens if I link up to this is it

just show up as a Bluetooth speaker

should we try that yeah

connect oh my phone call from Jack hello

I said hello

naked noise any noise this thing is so

worth 11 or 12 dollars

I mean it's ridiculously worth it it

needs obviously not as good as the

premium stuff I'm not saying that not

trying to compare it to some Android

wear watch I mean it's 11 or 12 bucks as

a gift or for a kid or something okay

let's check out this other one real

quick this one's about 20 bucks like I

said this one is more trying to look

like an Apple watch why did it go so dim

though you can also make phone calls on

here you know it takes microSD it has

the camera for the interface you

interact with this crown oh but you want

to have the like little apple watch kind

of look to it that's what your that's

what you pay for I guess huh so you oh

we look at my little bubbles

no forget this one get this guy right

here you're gonna find this particular

product under a bunch of different brand

names on Amazon I will link the one that

I purchased basically what you're

looking for is this form factor the one

that has this kind of shell that's a

steal for twelve dollars it's not a

replacement for an Android wear device

or even an Apple watch no it's not on

that level is 11 or 12 but it's a bit of

fun I like it 411 it doesn't suck how

about that not at that price point

doesn't suck how about that you thought

I was gonna say it sucked spend your 11

skip the Big Mac
