Now that the tech industry is abuzz with it, many more companies are jumping on the wearable computing bandwagon. For one, Cherry Mobile has launched its first wearable device—the G1 Watch Phone—just in time for 2014.

Cherry Mobile G1 Watch Phone Specs

  • 1.44-inch TFT LCD touchscreen, with slider key and directional pad
  • microSD support up to 8GB
  • VGA camera
  • GPRS Class 12
  • Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR

The Cherry Mobile G1 Watch Phone also comes with dual-SIM capability with dual standby. From the looks of it, the device is essentially a feature phone, meaning it uses a non-Android operating system that can support multimedia messaging service (MMS).

Among the bundled software are an FM radio, music player, and video player. Transferring multimedia files from the PC into the microSD card is possible via USB mass storage functionality. Every G1 Watch Phone unit also comes with a free Bluetooth headset.

Before you go complaining about the specs, note that this is a low-end device now selling for Php1,699. Obviously, it can’t measure up to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. But if you’ve tried the device firsthand, let us know what you think of it in the comments below!

  1. I own one of these and it’s quite annoying that you don’t really have protective films for the touch screen of this model. It’s not exactly splash proof either. That aside though, it’s pretty functional and can be considered a “commuter’s phone” as it is extremely portable and is easily replace-able when lost. Do try to take care of it though; this thing is both cool and fragile. Personally, this is a nice collection piece and I plan to keep mine without much doubt.

  2. I guess this is great for people who do outdoor activities like, cycling, hiking etc. This unit can be very convenient, specially for those who need emergency calling, minimal texting (yun bang tipong – “ok” “paui na” or “sige bibili kita” hehehe. Sana lang matibay, I’ll buy one today, tapos review ko ulit. :)

  3. Looks like a kid’s watch lmfao!

    I honestly wouldn’t wear this even if it was given to me for free, I don’t see CM selling several thousands of these, it looks hideous omg

  4. I bought my g1 the day after they released it in the market. Well, if I will rate it 1-10, I think I could give it a 6. Why 6? Because, the design is good, it supports different multimedia activities but the ease of use is really bad, well I can only recommend it for calling but for texting, that’s a big no no! The keys are too small and it’s really hard to press.. But, I know that Cherry Mobile will improve their smart gears in the near future. More power to CM!.
