Unlike today's smart-watches, which are designed as servants to a smartphone, the Chinese watch-phone is a completely autonomous entity. It makes ample use of its assets – a built-in SIM card slot or two, a spec sheet of cheap internals, and a featurephone-like Java operating system to put the best and worst of pre-iPhone mobiles on your wrist...

I remember people saying that about smart phones. Why do you need a smartphone when you can use a laptop it can run more programs, its faster, bigger screen, now look at smartphones today. I had a Galaxy Nexus S back in 2010. It had a single core 1ghz CPU with 512mb of ram. Now on my Gear Live smart watch I have more computing power then that smartphone. Times constantly change everything, and time waits for no one. With that said, some can see potential in a smart watch, while others will have no need.
I would like to know the resolution of this smart watch.

Agreed bro. Also look to their prices! They pack more hardware than your average mainstream OEM but cost so little.

I think the An1 Smart Watch Phone 2.0 (#9) is the most decent one out of all those "smartwatchs"

These are close to what we can call real smart-watch. Look at smart-watches from Sony or any other, they need a smartphone to do all the basic stuff...they are more like a modified digital watches. Smart-watches now are more like accessories which cannot be used separately. I just hope the big companies make something which can be actually be called "SMART-WATCH".
