OK, I’ll bite… what use is face unlock on a watch? I do have an authenticator on my Android wear watch, but there’s nothing overly personal or private. Anyone actually use that?

On another note: “Runs Andriod 7.1.1 and Supports SIM iOS 9.0” – “Andriod” is a typo and I have no idea what “SIM iOS 9.0” is.

Finally, while I’m having a grinchy rant, I’m done with Android wearables: Google has clearly given up and without a silicon partner they have no hope. Since I’m outside the Apple walled garden it’ll be Samsung for me. Might even take up a bit of Tizen development for kicks.

While the watch looks quite okay (judging by the picture)…I definitely wouldn’t want:
• Android on a smart watch
• an old Nougat Android (even on a device that isn’t a smart watch)
• Face unlock, even less so on an OS like Android that isn’t fully under my control
• doing video calls with a watch

And if I shell out anywhere near the list price of 146$, I’d want the watch to have NFC.
Aside from that, it’s a pity that there are so few smart watches out there where the user has full control of the OS (and can install the OS/distribution of his choice). Even just for that reason alone, the next smartwatch I buy will probably be a PineTime for 25$.
