Umidigi announced today their new UWatch 2 and, as the company usually does when a new device is released, they are hosting a giveaway. You can win one of the 10 UWatch 2 smartwatches that Umidigi is offering just by being a fan on their social media account. The giveaway (and more details) can be found at this link. But before you head there, let’s take a look at the new device.
The Umidigi UWatch 2 builds on the first generation released by the company and it improves quite a lot. It comes with a full metal body and a curved screen on the front. The Uwatch 2 has a 1.33″ OLED screen with 240×240 resolution and full touch support. It can be used to monitor different fitness activities like walking, running, cycling and even swimming. The last one is quite interesting since most devices at this price range do not offer any IP rating. The UWatch 2, however, comes with IP67 rating for water and dust resistance. It also comes with a heart-rate sensor that can be used to monitor you continuously.
So far the device feels more like a fitness tracker than a smartwatch, and you would be mostly right. The Umidigi UWatch 2 does not have an app store and new apps can’t be installed on it, but it does offer notifications support from your phone, you can reject calls and control music playback, without the need to take out your phone. The features are nice, considering the $24.99 price it will be sold at, but don’t expect other fancy features present on more high-end devices like the TicWatch Pro. Still, such a device has some benefits, like better battery life. The Umidigi Uwatch 2 can last up to 10 days of usage and takes only 2-3 hours to recharge.
