Billing your smartwatch as the “iWatch” is a marketing ploy that I would hope wouldn’t be fooling anyone into thinking they are buying a real Apple iWatch. But I’ve seen worse marketing ploys. And if you are to believe Sneer, their watch is a pretty super smartwatch.
According to Sneer, it’s smartwatch basically replaces your cell phone. It’s about the size of normal wristwatch, but in that little watch lies a monster of technology. You can answer and receive phone calls, listen to mp3’s, and get different alarms. It has the ability synce calendar appointments and alert you to calendar events. Plus you can pick up the radio, and listen to broadcasts with bluetooth headphones. And although it doesn’t have a camera built in, it can control the camera on your smartphone. Plus it has a built in pedometer, and alarms you when you have been sitting too long.
That’s a lot to offer in a smartwatch that costs under $200. Especially when similar watches like the Samsung Gear is around the $300 mark, and the upcoming Apple iWatch will be selling for about they same. But how do the reviews pan out?
Sneer “iWatch” Review
Is the Sneer waterproof smart watch with touch screen worth the money? According most verified purchasers at Amazon, the Sneer is a pretty decent smartwatch. It basically does what it is supposed to do. However reviews state that the phone is more splash resistant then waterproof, plus there aren’t any firmware updates. That’s not good, since most software has bugs.
What I have found elsewhere on the internet seems to support most of the company’s claims. However a glaring negative that I’ve read in a few reviews, is it’s inability to receive texts. And a lack of apps. I mean no apps at all. Something that the Apple iWatch will have in spades.
A big positive that was noted is the ability of the watch to use a SIM card. That’s nice for storage of photos and music.
So, if you just want to feed your smartwatch appetite, without the want or ability to shell out upwards of $300, then the Sneer “iWatch” might be just what you’re looking for.
