A few days ago we wrote about Elephone’s new smartphone, the Elephone PX (more details about the device here). Today, the company has prepared a new offer to celebrate Christmas. They will be offering the new Elephone Watch 3 in a bundle with the Elephone PX smartphone for just $269. If the phone and the watch are as described by them, this is an interesting offer. And considering that the IndieGoGo campaign was already funded way more than they asked, there is no risk of loosing your money to shady crowd-funded campaigns.
let’s talk about the watch. it comes with IP67 rating for water and dust, has a build-in heartrate sensor and a square screen to display the time, activity or notifications from your device. Design wise, it does not stand out neither positive nor negative. Don’t expect Android wear however. This is a cheaper, more basic device, that comes with a proprietary OS and most probably you won’t be able to install new applications. The battery live though will greatly benefit from this simplicity. Elephone promises up to 25 days of stand-by time and 3 hour of charging. The price is also low, on par with most fitness trackers (smart bracelets), so it may be worth it.
You can order the bundle from IndieGoGo for $269 or just the Elephone Watch 3 for only $39.
