Zeaplus Watch DM360 Review – A Great All-Around Smartwatch on a Budget

by Linus 5

Zeaplus is not the company you are going to think when it comes to smartwatches, but it turns out that they have something worth your attention. This time around we are looking at the affordable, yet good looking device – Zeaplus Watch DM360. How good is that? Check out either video or written review to find out.

We wanted to say thank you to ZEAPLUS.com for sending this smartwatch for a review!




I don’t usually talk a lot about the packaging, but this time we are looking a really nice presentation. The watch is packed in a book style box and all the contents are put very neatly. Overall, I was surprised to see this kind of stuff in this price category of smartwatches.
The contents include the smartwatch, magnetic charging cable, user manuals and the screen protector.
The magnetic charger is really easy to use. You just have to place it near the watch and the magnets do the rest.
The main features of this device, which costs only $99 include the 1.22” touch screen display, IP53 rating meaning that it is waterproof, dustproof and sweat proof. In addition, it has a heart rate monitor and it is made out of stainless steel.
The strap is made out of leather, which has a smooth touch. The display has great outdoors visibility and viewing angles.
On the back side you can find a charging dock along with the heart rate monitor.
On the right side you can find a power key and the speaker grill, which can be both used for music and the phone calls.
On the left there is only the microphone.
All in all, the watch looks very similar to the Motorola Moto 360 in terms of design. Other than that I’m very surprised with a great built quality as the combination of quality stainless steel and leather gives a great look and feel.
In addition, the watch feels great on the hand and the leather strap does not irritate the wrist after longer periods of use.
Let’s take a look at the UI of the smartwatch. It is a proprietary OS designed by Zeaplus and the whole idea is that the watch should be a companion to your smartphone by connecting via bluetooth. The UI is fast and responsive and you can navigate through the menu either using a touchscreen or turning the device.
An amazing feature is the ability to make or receive the calls directly from the smartwatch. I found the speaker to be great, but it may not be loud enough to speak in noisy environments. On the other hand, people I spoke to did not complain about the my voice clarity at all.
The speaker can be also used to listen to music. It is quite loud and has great sound quality for a smartwatch. Also, you can control the music stored on your smartphone. See the video review to hear a sound test.
It is great that the music can be played on your smartwatch and can be controlled. However, it does not work vice versa meaning that you can’t play music on your smartphone’s speaker and control it. You can only do that when the earphones are connected.

Moreover, you have to scan the included QR code to download the smartwatch app to be able to use all the features. One of them is the remote shutter control. However, I found it to be completely useless. First of all, it does not work if the smartphone is on the standby mode. Secondly, there is a significant lag on the smartwatch’s viewfinder. Thirdly, it does not use your camera’s stock app. It means that you have to deal with some third party app, which doesn’t even have neither auto nor tap-to-focus features.
 The UI of the app is pretty simple and easy to use. You can track your fitness activity here.
Other features worth mentioning are a sleep manager, where you can track the quality of your sleep. Also, the messages app lets you read the whole message and reply with some pre-installed answers.
Another great thing is the gestures control. The most important one is that the screen lights up once you twist your wrist and it works very well. What is more, the smartwatch has all kinds of languages, so international customers can feel comfortable.
In addition, “Find My Device” feature lets you find your smartphone.
Finally, the included Siri app let’s you do some voice controls. It basically uses Google Now and works most of the time. However, I’m not a huge fan of voice controls, so I don’t use it.



All in all, the Zeaplus Watch DM360 is a great device for the price of $99. It offers a lot of features and most of them work pretty good. I found the essential fitness app like pedometer to be working fine, but the heart rate monitor sometimes can take almost a minute to do its thing.
Also, the UI is fast,  responsive and has tons of customisation options.
As far as notifications go, they work okay, but you would definitely want to block some apps. For example, the watch notifies you each time you change the song on the music app.
Some apps like remote camera control really disappointed me and I don’t even want to use it.  However, I was surprised how well the gesture controls work.
One of the most important things is the battery life and I can say it can last you at least one full day on normal use and even two days on light use.
All in all, despite a few shortcomings it is a great device for the this price category. Of course, there are some better options out there, but they would cost 2 or even 3 times more. I think that it could be a great device for those who need some fitness tracking features and don’t want to miss any, I mean literally, any notification they receive.
