Oukitel A29 smartwatch makes and takes calls; timepiece can be pre-ordered tomorrow for $69.99

We've seen Oukitel display a number of interesting smartphones. Did you know that they also make wearables? Starting tomorrow, the Oukitel A29 smartwatch will be available for pre-orders, priced at just $69.99. With a slot for you to insert a SIM card, this timepiece can make and take calls right from your wrist. Using Bluetooth 4.0 to pair the watch with your handset, you can sync your contacts list, or use the watch as a remote control to take pictures or play tunes on your phone. The A29 will pair with an iOS or Android device.
Like most smartwatches, the Oukitel A29 is interested in your health. It monitors your exercises, keeps track of your heart rate, counts the number of steps you make while walking or running, and computes the number of calories you've consumed while exercising. The smartwatch will remind you if you've been sitting too long, and also measures your sleep. Most Doctors say that getting enough sleep is important for your overall health.
The Oukital A29 is made from stainless steel, and features a 320mAh battery. That gives it four hours of talk time, and 150 hours of standby. It takes two hours for the battery to go from zero to full. The watch will launch on November 20th.

The Apple Watch is a shiny bar of soap; this is better looking by default...

Also that price of 69$. That is really a low entry point for a smart watch with a touch screen interface. Plus you can put a sim card in this watch. So for a really inexpensive watch that will allow its users to make phone calls. It seem worth it. I could buy one for my mother, put a sim card in it, and if she falls or needs help. Then this device could come in a pinch. I guess it depends on how easy it is to make calls on this device. Not to mention, it is showing users how expensive Apple truly is.

"And features a 320mAh battery. That gives it four hours of talk time, and 150 hours of standby. It takes two hours for the battery to go from zero to full." DOA!

Not into smartwatches because their useability does not justify their prices; but for this price, I may be tempted to try one.

Woah.! That Terminator prediction is becoming way more true than I anticipated. We are way too much getting close to machines. And seriously, being an adult, with brains, do I really "need!" to be reminded by a smartwatch its time to sleep?
