Fundo Pro –
First the bad news. The unit I received was set for China internal use only. That means absolutely NO Google apps installed, and pretty much impossible to install them without China pushing a firmware update. That said, and after strong feedback to them, they will look into it to make sure their stock is set for International distribution, not China only.
Now the good news. This watch has lots going for it. The square size and front facing camera make for ideal conditions to video chat and run standard Android apps. The 4G connectivity (though I could only get 3G with my USA AT&T SIM) should make things like video chat smooth. Using WiFi will always give the best results though, and, of course, WiFi speeds are great on this watch.
There’s a trick to tethering this watch to your phone, and it’s shown a couple of times in this video series about the DM2018, so make sure you watch all the videos if you’re serious about owning this watch.
Finally, the fitness/health component is the best I’ve seen on an Android watch. For the first time Blood Pressure reading is included. Also, in the fitness section, the activities like walking, running, and cycling actually integrate with the GPS module for accurate distance calculations. This is new as most Android watches simply slap on a fitness module but connect everything to the pedometer step count, which is often inaccurate for distance without knowing and adjusting your exact stride (whic can’t be done on most watches).
Bottom line, this is a really good watch, but make sure you get one with the Google apps installed, otherwise lots of apps, like Chrome, Maps, Translate, YouTube, Hangouts, Skype, etc., simply won’t work.

BIOMETRIC MEASUREMENT WARNING: This device claims to read Blood Pressure without using a cuff to measure actual Blood Pressure directly. The accuracy of the readings HAVE NOT BEEN VERIFIED and MAY NOT BE ACCURATE. As such, you are advised to proceed with caution and to *NOT* rely upon Blood Pressure readings from this or any similar devices for making decisions regarding your medical condition or health. Fitness/Health watches/bands offering biometric measurements such as heart rate, Blood Pressure, blood oxygen, fatigue, breath rate, etc., should be considered supplemental to seeking true and accurate readings taken under optimal conditions by trained professionals using accurate, calibrated equipment. If you feel concerned about your health, do not self-diagnose, especially from using inexpensive, uncalibrated non-medical wearable devices such as this one. Seek proper medical advice. Enjoy your new toy, but remember, it is a toy.
