4.0 out of 5 stars U8 watch in-depth review
The Good: The touch screen was actually surprisingly responsive. The watch receives charge from a micro-USB port. It is pretty stylish and classy. There is a phonebook in the watch that connects to your phone (can display 1000 contacts). You can also dial phone numbers straight from the watch. When receiving a text message, you will feel a little vibration or ringtone...

Well where to begin... This accessory works, but not as it leads you to believe.
First, the instructions suck. To "install" the notification file on your phone you must have a file explorer app on your phone. There is no way to install it just by putting the file on your phone. Open you're, explorer app once you connect your phone to your computer and...

4.0 out of 5 stars U8 watch in-depth review, June 4, 2014
The Good: The touch screen was actually surprisingly responsive. The watch receives charge from a micro-USB port. It is pretty stylish and classy. There is a phonebook in the watch that connects to your phone (can display 1000 contacts). You can also dial phone numbers straight from the watch. When receiving a text message, you will feel a little vibration or ringtone. You are also able to view recent call logs. Music may be played out of the small speaker. There is a remote camera capture feature that allows you to control the camera on your phone to take pictures. You may choose from four different clock types for your home screen, there are two analog options and two digital options. An anti-lost feature makes the watch vibrate when it is too far away from your mobile device. The watch also features an altimeter, barometer, pedometer, and stopwatch. This watch surprisingly made good phone calls and the sound was crisp and clear. The battery was also better than I thought it was going to be. It lasted 3-days on a single charge with moderate use. This watch is sold for under $70. In other words, you can’t beat the price.

The Bad: This watch isn’t made out of metal, it is made out of some kind of hard plastic with a matte finish. The screen is not glass either; it is again, plastic. The Bluetooth pairing was extremely difficult. It took me a few days of consulting with an employee before I finally got it paired with my device. The strap itself feels cheap, that said it does its job. There is also some wasted space around the screen with a quarter-inch margin that could have instead been used to expand the screen without making the watch itself bigger. The watch is a little thick but not too bad. The colors on this watch aren’t as vibrant as in the pictures on Amazon.com. As I said before, you are able to play music from this watch but the speaker is not powerful enough to use this feature. To hear the music, even in a quiet room, I had to hold the watch up directly to my ear. You may not text back directly from the watch.

The Verdict: Although there are many small flaws to this watch, for under $70 this watch is a steal. Once you get past the difficult pairing stage, it is smooth sailing from there. The watch does everything that you need it to do and then some. The small setbacks like the plastic screen and frame is not enough to be a deal breaker.

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for, June 29, 2014
Well where to begin... This accessory works, but not as it leads you to believe.
First, the instructions suck. To "install" the notification file on your phone you must have a file explorer app on your phone. There is no way to install it just by putting the file on your phone. Open you're, explorer app once you connect your phone to your computer and download the file, then install the notification file from there.
By looking at the pictures, you assume the touchscreen has a bit of functionality to it... it really doesnt. The cover image that shows the 3 icons under the time are false. The only way to access anything is through the menu. There are no shortcuts on the home screen. Another seriously annoying feature is that once the screen goes off, it's off. Every time you want to check the time or check for messages you must hit the power button. This makes checking the time a 2 handed operation. It may not sound like much, but it gets old really quick.
This watch has plenty of very annoying nuances such as this. The ring tones are crap, not that mine ever work anyways. I hear my phone notify me of a mesage, but my watch never does. I can turn on the watch and see I have a new notification, but no ring tones or notification ever gets sent from the watch itself.
The watch is cheap made, if that wasn't obvious by the price. My screen glass is too big, and it's just a matter of time before it gets snagged on something and breaks off. There is no attention to detail or precision.
My personal conclusion: the product works, and will get some cool points from anyone who you show it off to, but it is what it is... a cheap made knock-off. If you're okay with that, then no worries; get it and you'l be fine. If you want something with usability and functionality, don't waste your time or money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Something to know before u buy, May 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LeexGroup®New U8 Bluetooth Smart Watch WristWatch Phone Mate For IOS Android Apple iphone 4/4S/5/5C/5S Samsung S2/S3/S4/Note 2/Note 3 HTC Sony Blackberry... (Black) (Watch)
Works pretty nice. Not the easiest nor fully covered manual. A couple of features will only be in metric scales and they are not changeable. The glass is breakable I think kind of brittle type. I covered mine with a piece of packing tape to keep it from getting worse. Otherwise the watch is pretty cool.

2.0 out of 5 stars It would be nice if you can just touch the screen or for ..., October 6, 2014
The watch functions as it should however they make claim it works with IOS software but in reality it only somewhat works with IOS. It took a while and many attempts to sync with Bluetooth. The biggest problem is that there is no way to use their software with an apple product so you lose the functionality of receiving and viewing text messages. You can hear the notification but you have to go to the apple device to do anything with it. Also if you want to check the time you have to press the button on t he side since the screen goes away after a few minutes. It would be nice if you can just touch the screen or for the screen to come in with motion. It's cool looking watch however just not all that functional. You get what you pay for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Really disappointed, September 14, 2014
Well, unfortunately, I bought this product damaged. The texting, camera and contacts don't work. I've tried contacting the seller with no response. So it sits in its box collecting dust now. Being that this is the second product to come tome damaged I'm getting more hesitant to buy from Amazon. And, what really stinks is I waited about a month for this product to get to me. I was so excited until I found out it doesn't work properly at all

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, September 19, 2014
Very surprised by this product. Using a Moto X, most features work as advertised. Things like the camera app and the music player have not worked yet, but I'm probably doing something wrong. Read other reviews before you buy.

Excellent delivery. Good devices but the product is not durable and easy break on watch-bands. By the way the android device is excellent and good performance.

Had the watch for about 2 weeks before the face buttons stopped working completely. Still haven't heard from the company about a replacement unit.
