If you should ask me what’s my take on smartwatches, I would say it is a really good idea. As a matter of fact, i currently own two (A smartwatch and a smart bracelet) and the experience has been really cool so far.

We are gradually moving into an era where using a smartwatch sorta makes you smarter than just using a normal wristwatch that tells nothing other than time and date. Imagine when you are in the public, someone’s calling your mobile phone and you could see who’s calling on the smartwatch tiled around your wrist without having to bring out your phone from your pocket. Sounds pretty cool right?

Now, most of these smartwatches can work independently without the need of a phone. You can make and receive calls, send and receive messages, surf the web, listen to songs and more from a simple smartwatch placed around your wrist. One of such kind of smartwatches is the K8 3G Smartwatch.

  1. The specs are great. If. This smartwatch can do great stuffs like surfing the web, making calls, and sending text messages and even check time then i dont need to carry up to 3 smartphones whenver i am going out. I think i need to get one for myself. And it is affordable converting the dollar amount to naira the watch is not more than 30, 000 naira which is quite cheap to me.

    • Micheal, Pineapple brand?? My brother, we pray for you to achieve this dream lol. Hope we would be able to operate the phone with straw and we will be able to ice the devices inside fridge?

  2. @ Samuel, Boss I think it’s Apple’s Policy. I don’t know why but the policy suck. Or better still Apple SmartWatch should be independent of itself

  3. Technology is always on the good side .. Popping up innovative devices has really helped to make works easier.. I would love to get the smart watch
    Really in love with it

  4. @ Eze Chukwumaijem Adnah, Exactly same problem I have with Buying from from gearbest. Once it gets faulty, no Carlcare. How frustrating it could be.

  5. Wow! I thought it’ll always need a phone. It has same specifications with some low-level Android Devices. Swartwatches gives you more abilities than an ordinary wrist watch can offer. All the same, K8 Smartwatch Price is affordable.
