Do you remember the Cherry Mobile G1 which is a watch and a phone at the same time? Well, the company finally revealed the Cherry Mobile G2.
The Cherry Mobile G2 is included in the latest pricelist with a price tag of ₱1,899. A bit of research brought me to a very similar looking smartwatch sold by Chinavision.
Cherry Mobile says that the G2 has a 1.44-inch touchscreen display, multimedia player and can take pictures and videos. If paired with a smartphone via Bluetooth, the Cherry Mobile G2 can then make and receive calls.
If the Cherry Mobile G2 is indeed the same as the smartwatch that I stumbled upon on that Chinese wholesaler website, then it should also have a pedometer. That means in can count the steps that you’ve taken and calculate the calories that you’ve burned.
It might also be a bit water resistant and shock proof with an Ingress Protection rating of IP54. This means it can be used under a moderate rain or while driving in a dusty road.
However, you must take note that the Cherry Mobile G2 runs on proprietary software so no Android Wear or Tizen OS here.
Its OS functions just fine though and can be controlled by swiping to the left or right. The Cherry Mobile G2 shows the time and date by default and swiping to the left opens the other functions like its multimedia player, step counter and camera.
Speaking of camera, I’m not sure if it will be useful for you at all. It’s just a VGA snapper so pictures and videos will be of very low quality. You can use it for your ninja moves though!
There seems to be 4GB of onboard storage that’s why USB Mass Storage is listed in its specs. You can plug it in your computer using a cleverly placed USB pug in the end of its strap.
It’s compatible with both iPhones and Android smartphones. However, it apparently needs you to use a particular Messaging app in order for it to sync with your phone’s SMS too.
Remember that I could be wrong about these so we’ll just wait for the official features from Cherry Mobile.
