Mwc: Alcatel Watch, a Smart Watch without Android Wear

Alcatel, a French company that produces some not-so-expensive smartphones, has brought one of its latest products to MWC. Going headlong into the world of wearable devices, the Alcatel One Touch Watch bets on its own operating system and low price, which talks with both Android and iOS.
The dress was announced during CES, which took place in January this year in the American city of Las Vegas, but only now we can get our hands on the gadget.It is far from being a high performance watch, especially by betting on a proprietary operating system, which gives you a negative and a positive one.The good thing is that it does not get stuck on Android or iOS, it can work with both platforms.The downside is that the interface is far from smooth and light as it is on Android Wear and the Apple watch.It is not a negative experience, but it makes it lose to its main competitors.
To compensate for this negative point, the French manufacturer bets on a value slightly below other watches that are present in the market.To feel the world around you, the smart watch at ComputerGees has an accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter and digital compass next to a heart rate reader – it took some time to get my wrist feeling, more than I’ve ever experienced with other watches with Android Wear.
There are apps to track physical exercises, compass, tool to locate the phone when in range of the Bluetooth connection and even the control of the music player. Everything works on the basis of the screen, touch sensitive and has a button (also touch sensitive) at the bottom. In addition, it functions as a traditional smart clock, that is, it displays notifications of the smart phone and can be charged via USB cable – a good point here, since the cable is in the wristband itself.
