GEAK Watch is an Android 4.1 Smartwatch Packed with Features

Smartwatches have been available since 2011, in different formats, most of the time as a smartphone companion such as Pebble, or sometimes with slightly more powerful hardware running Android 2.3. one example being the I’m Watch. The GEAK Watch goes a step further for a relatively powerful Ingenic JZ4774 MIPS processor clocked at 1 GHz, Android Jelly Bean, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC…, and the ability to install apps directly from an app store.


GEAK Watch hardware specifications:

  • SoC- Ingenic JZ4774 processor @ 1GHz
  • System Memory – 512MB RAM
  • Storage – 4GB NAND Flash
  • Display1.55″ LED capacitive touch screen (OGS) with  240 × 240 resolution
  • Connectivity:
    • WiFi 802.11 b/g/ n
    • Bluetooth 4.0
    • NFC/GPS/FM
  • Sensors – G-Sensor, Gyroscope, and Geomagnetic sensors
  • Battery – 330mAh lithium polymer battery

The watch is water-resistant (IP3X), enables heartbeat and blood pressure monitoring (maybe with external Bluetooth hardware), can be used as a pedometer, and it can even serve as a smartphone remote to take pictures. I’m not quite sure you’d actually see a live stream of the camera on the watch, as the image above seems to imply, but interesting nonetheless. The firmware will be updated via OTA. Oh, and I almost forgot… It can also display the time, you know, like an actual watch.

The GEAK Watch looks impressive, but we’ll have to wait a bit longer to see how it performs, as Engadget reports the watch will be available for pre-order for 1,999 RMB ($325) in China starting July 3rd. You may find more information on GEAK Watch page (in Chinese).

  1. am going to start calling these things wrist devices, the least i will do is use it to just look at the time.

  2. Hm, guess in a while I’ll need to recharge my watch every day; not sure if I am looking fwd to do so.

  3. @FransM
    Maybe wireless charging. At night people could remove their watch, and place it on a charging pad on their bed table. That way it may not be too inconvenient.

    For sure that’s a big change compared to my current watch which is supposed to last about 10 years with one battery.

  4. Look a nice watch – it will have trouble competing over here though with so many recognized and established names – Apple, Samsung etc. – entering the market.
