After a couple of teasers, Elephone has officially unveiled the Elephone W2 smartwatch. The company announced the wearable today at an event, alongside the launch of its bezelless Elephone P9000 Edge and two other smartphones in the P9000 series. Apart from these four devices, the company also showed off the Elephone M2 mid-range smartphone. But more about that later. First, let’s take a look at the Elephone W2 smartwatch.
Elephone W2 Smartwatch
This wearable is unlike the usual smartwatches that you have seen in the market. The first major difference is the lack of a display up front. So, the W2 is like a traditional watch with some smart features. It’s a round watch with traditional dials and numbers and three physical buttons on the right.
The Elephone W2 comes with the Swiss Ronda Movement 762. The overall thickness of the watch is about 10.30mm and you get two color options for the case, namely Rose Gold and Steel Silver. However, it looks like there are a bunch of other color options available for the leather strap. Powering the watch will be a 210mAh battery, and without a display, the battery life should be quite decent. However, the company is yet to reveal an official battery life figure for the device. The watch is waterproof as well.
As for its smart functions, you will find a pedometer, sleep monitor, call reminder, alarm reminder and even remote picture feature on the device. Unfortunately, this is all we have on the Elephone W2 at the moment. However, we expect more details like pricing, and availability pretty soon.
Apart from the new smartwatch and the P9000 series smartphones, Elephone also showed off its Elephone M2 smartphone at the event today.
The phone features mid-range specs like MT6753 octa-core chipset, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 5.5-inch FHD 1080p display and a 2600mAh battery. At the back, you will find a 13MP Sony IMX214 camera while, up front, there is a 5MP shooter.
The company has added a fingerprint sensor as well, on the home button which sits right below the display. You can even unlock the device when the screen is off by double tapping on the display.
The device is already available for sale via retailers like Gearbest.
