Just like how Android Wear 2.0 got caught up by the delay series, ZTE too went through similar delays with its Android watch. But it’s here finally, and it’s here with a bang.
Quartz, the first ever Android Wear smartwatch from ZTE comes loaded with the latest version of the smartwatch OS from Google, Android 2.0. It needs to be noted that there aren’t many devices boasting the latest wearable OS from Google right now. But that’s not the real deal, ZTE Quartz ups the game by being the most affordable Android Wear 2.0 available in the market right now.
That’s right. At $192, the ZTE Quartz is the cheapest smartwatch you can grab now to enjoy the Android Wear 2.0 features. And for that price, you get to enjoy some decent hardware as well. Quartz will come loaded with the Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor that will be accompanied by a RAM of 768 MB. The storage space is of 4 GB.
Besides, there is also a built-in speaker and mic made available in this cheap Android wearable. ZTE also assures LTE connectivity for the device along with support for GPS. ZTE has partnered with T-Mobile, so you need to be tied up with a T-Mobile subscription to make the most of it.
The battery is of 500mAh, which should be able to handle a day’s operation quite comfortably. The smartwatch also features water resistant capabilities. The 22m band over the watchface can easily be swapped out. There’s only a single button on the side, and that will open up Google Assistant or the list of installed apps once operated.
Quartz, which was initially leaked last month, will be arriving first on the online platforms, on April 14. The device will be available through physical stores the following week.
