Alcatel OneTouch Watch with Android Wear Launched


Alcatel launched its smartwatch range in India starting with the OneTouch Watch. The Android Wear-powered watch is available in India through Flipkart at Rs 7999. The OneTouch Watch is available in two hues — Sporty dark red/volcano black and White. It features a 1.22-inch round display, with a resolution of 240x240pixel and TFT 262k color display with oleophobic coating. It connects to Android and iOS smartphones via Bluetooth. The smartwatch can be synced with Android smartphones (Android 4.3 and above) or iPhones (4S and above).

The watch features a heart-rate monitor, an accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter and e-compass. It also allows users to track their sleep cycle, distance covered, steps taken and calories burned. When connected to a smartphone, the Alcatel OneTouch Watch displays call notifications, social media updates and vibrates if users stray too far from their phones. It also offers a ‘raise to see’ feature turning on the display when the wrist is lifted. Touching the watch’s screen activates a multimedia remote control. Users can control music, take pictures from their phone from a distance or make their phone ring in order to locate it.

It is dust and water-resistant (up to 1meter), and Alcatel claims it has a long battery life with its 210mAh battery. The watch has a USB charger integrated into its band.
