A new ZTE smart Watch in your future?

"ZTE Quartz is official and coming to T-Mobile on April 14 for $192"

"This will be an Android Wear 2.0 watch with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 2100 processor, 768MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, cellular connectivity (3G, no LTE here), a speaker and a microphone, IP67 water and dust resistance, and a 1.4" AMOLED display with a 400x400 resolution and Gorilla Glass 3 on top. The nice surprises are the existence of a GPS chip, which should be exciting for those who want to use it for navigation or while exercising outdoors, the relatively beefy 500 mAh battery, and the interchangeable 22mm bands. All of that comes in a 46 x 46 x 14.5mm package.

Like we previously revealed, the Quartz doesn't have NFC for Android Pay or a heart rate sensor on the back, and there's no rotating crown or bezel or any way of interacting with the UI beside putting your grubby fingers on the screen. Plus, the charger is a proprietary puck with 4-pins so you don't get the benefit of wireless charging.

But the price is still very appealing. At $192, it offers more bang for your buck than the LG Watch Style (unless you consider the recent sales on that) and several other newly announced Android Wear 2.0 watches. It'll launch exclusively on TMobile.com in the US on April 14 with several T-Mo retail stores stocking it one week later on April 21."

Mi_Lion's thoughts;

["At close to half the price of a Axon 7, limited useful and redundant user functionalities, and "Big Ben thickness" for maximum wall banging impact! ha ha!

Smart Watch industry's failed attempts to grow in marketplace underlines the fallacy of keep doing the same things and expecting

different results."}
