    It’s quite nice, even better than the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Just a litter thinner and a better battery and I will definitely buy one!

    “but annoying for a watch.”

    Sure it is not practical !
    But, why not use a kinetic energy recovery system? Then it may last for a week or more.

    @JotaMG

    I just know the watches kinetic system, an example:

    http://luxuryinwatches.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/seiko-kinetic-movement.jpg

    As an “ex” watches market professional I know this system well, the problem is the extra space that it needs and the knowledge over mechanical engineering. These kind of watches are big enough… and this is mechanics, not electronics, so maybe more difficult to be made by an electronics chinese company.

    On the other hand, maybe a good way to get power, but… how much? One thing is a watch, another very different is a 1.54″ screen eating our battery.

    Any way, interesting idea.

    Wireless charging + charging stand (maybe doubling as lamp or nighlight) would do the trick…

    Wireless charging is a MUST, due to waterproof (do not need 10ATM water resistant… but at least support a shower).

    I don’t like the SOC on this one, MTK 6577 is power hungry, one with a MTK6572 would have been so much better, I would have bought that one.

    DealExtreme has now a slightly better deal for $146.10. Black or Grey.

    Are you sure it is BLE (BT 4.0)? On pandawill = bt 2.0 and on dx.com = bt 3.0. I wonder which one is right?

    @Slowstream
    I got BT 4.0 from the manufacturer website. When it comes to Bluetooth version in specs always assume the worse :p

    I’m not even sure BLE is a mandatory feature of Bluetooth 4.0, so it may be possible to BT 4.0 devices without BLE (TBC). Last time, I checked about Bluetooth versions, and that was confusing. http://www.cnx-software.com/2013/06/05/bluetooth-versions-walkthrough-and-bluetooth-4-0-low-energy-development-resources/

    Now I have an Android phone, and I could not even find an easy way to check the real Bluetooth version, even though I have the device in my hands.

    Hello, may I ask a question pls? Is there a build in GPS in the S5? I mean a real positioning, AGPS support, an can I install a map or navigation application, using the GPS, or it can use just the celphone data for location? THX in advance!

      I’ve been asking one for review but never actually managed to get a unit, so it’s difficult to answer with certainty.
      But the device appears to be based on Mediatek SoC + 4-in-1 combo chip (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and FM). So it’s very likely there’s GPS hardware in the device. I’m not sure about app support, as the screen is really small for map applications.

    pregunto si alguien ha comprado este producto zpax s5 y se la han enviado, porque pregunte en chat linea en dx.com me recomiendan no comprar ningun producto que trabaje con bateria de litio porque hong kong post ya no envian productos con baterias de litio y detienen el envio.

    @esteban5
    I’ve recently received a smartphone from them with a lithium ion battery, but they shipped it via Singapore Post. Actually, they ship most products via Singapore post now (at least to the ones I ordered), and it now takes about 2 weeks for shipping, instead of 3 to 4 weeks with HK post.

    FYR. Google translation of esteban5 comment:
    “wondering if anyone has purchased this product and the s5 zpax sent because online chat ask dx.com I recommend not to buy any product that works with lithium battery because hong kong post no longer send products with lithium batteries and stop shipping.”

    I got something containing a Li-ion cell from China recently; they sent it by Swedish Post! & it came postmarked Sweden…

    Here you can see some videos of what this watch can do! :D
    Even Mame, FPSE and Dreamcast emulators using the PS3 controller.
