Generally when our team is performing research on low-end Smartwatches, (Or any kind of low end device) we usually find the same results over and over again: same features, similar designs, but different brands, however, from time to time we found a device that makes us wonder: what is this even doing here? Such is the case of the X10
The rules of the Smartwatches market forces the manufacturers to deliver the best quantity and quality of features possible in their products if they want to have a chance to compete on this dense market, a market where is not easy standing out from the competition. However, the X10 Smartwatch caught our attention not for its beautiful design since we never judge a book by its cover, what really makes it shine are its features. You will find on this Smartwatch the usual features that you have seen your whole life alongside other features, not that common, such as the presence of several external sensors like an altimeter, thermometer, and barometer.
To define the X10 Smartwatch in a nutshell, we can say that it is a unisex wearable featuring a stylish design with a stainless steel dial and leather straps. The display is a 1.3-inch IPS touchscreen with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. Within the watch, there is a regular MTK2502 Chipset alongside 128 MB Ram and 64MB of Rom. The internal 210mAh battery can last about 3 days.
X10 Smartwatch features
The X10 Smartwatch features the standard functions of current Smartwatches and a slightly plus due to the addition of several external sensors and some other elements that we’ll mention later. However, this isn’t a standalone device, meaning that you’ll need to use a smartphone in order to unlock all the features.
Rotary knob: you can use the crown of the watch for switching interfaces, functions or even adjusting the zoom.
Speech interaction: no need to get your phone out of your pocket, once you have synchronized the watch with your smartphone you can use voice commands for playing music, answering calls, voice searching, etc.
Sensors: we have an altimeter, thermometer, and barometer. Keep track of the geographic and weather conditions easily.
Synchronization via Bluetooth: receive SMS and notifications from Facebook, twitter, We-Chat, etc. Also, remotely control your music playlist and camera as well. All of this from your wrist.
Pedometer: use your watch to keep the track of your physical activities such as moving distance, steps and energy consumption.

Sleeping monitoring and sedentary reminder: to keep track of your sleep quality and improving your habits.

The X10 Smartwatch features a fantastic design suitable for a business meeting and for practicing sports, the fashion style is perfect for any situation and any person, male or female, business person or athlete. The dial has a rounded shape and the overall body is as thin as 12mm, it’s really a slim design. The size dimensions are as follows: 1.61 x 1.61 x 0.47 inches, that without taking the band size into consideration. The body is made out of stainless steel and is resistant to corrosion and deformation. The only thing that you will find on the outer body is the crown alongside a key on the right side.
The straps are made of a resilient leather that features a crocodile skin pattern, which fits the dial and body really well. These straps are resilient and shouldn’t cause any inconvenience to your skin.
This device is partially waterproof you can wash your hands or face while wearing it with no trouble at all.
The X10 Smartwatch comes in 3 color presentations: moonlight silver, luxury gold, and deep black. This watch looks amazing regardless of the color, though.
We have a 1.3-inch IPS touchscreen that features a 240 x 240 pixels resolution, the shape is rounded as well, and the crystal glass looks really polished. The picture displayed is clear and vivid, good image quality indeed.
Is worth mentioning that the X10 Smartwatch features 5 different locking screens for you to choose.
CPU & Memory
This watch features an MTK2502 built-in chip, which is widely spread among low-end Smart Watches, but does its duty just well. The performance is correct for a device like this. The memory available is just the required for the system and no more. There is only 128MB of Ram and 64MB of Rom, so forget about saving something in this device since it has practically no storage.
OS & Software
As we described before, this Smartwatch doesn’t offer too much autonomy, the OS provided by the manufacturer is straightforward and basic. However, you can sync this Smartwatch with any device that runs Android 4.3 or iOS 7.0 (or above) and exploit all the possibilities that it has to offer.
Battery and Connectivity
The X10 Smartwatch is powered by a 210mAh polymer battery, which provides up to 3 days of standby time and takes only 2 hours for being fully charged again. This isn’t precisely a long duration battery, and the average duration is actually about 2 days, in this sense the device is average.
The only kind of connectivity is Bluetooth 4.0 so that you can link with compatible devices.

X10 Smartwatch: Our Review and thoughts
The quality of the materials is great both the dial and the straps, the overall design is formidable. And the wide variety of features for a device of this price is well appreciated, you got voice commands, pedometer, heart rate monitor and several sensors (thermometer, barometer). Therefore, we consider that the X10 Smartwatch truly stands out from the rest, at least when it comes to low-end wearables.
In the downside, this device doesn’t have SIM support, meaning that you will depend on your phone, we brought this to the table since featuring network support (at least 2G) among low-end devices is quickly becoming a widespread practice. Another disadvantage is the lack of a camera, which would’ve been a nice addition.
Overall we’d recommend the X10 Smartwatch to anyone who is looking for an affordable wearable with a complete set of basic features and also an attractive design.
