The Hannspree sport watch gives us a few ways to track things such as a pedometer,weight loss tracking.sleep monitoring and message notifications.also sorting a long battery life it will make it attractive to some,with an Oled display which the digits are small you will get about 8-10 days of life. You can download a companion app from the store and simply sync to your watch via bluetooth and its good to go..Find out how we got on over the coming days,check out our unboxing and quick look below.

UNBOXING 

Ok the watch is cheap its not meant to be the Moto 360 some people expect these things on products,the moral of the story is you get what you pay for in life this is testament here with the Hanspree Budget watch it does however offer plenty if not more for the beginner or novice if you will.For its first attempt its good mostly besides the sometimes annoying pairing which took so time,the battery life is excellent compared to rivals in its category and means less charging,as an example i have to charge my Moto 360 DAILY which does bother me,its like having a second phone to cater for even though i do carry 2 devices daily its catering for it that annoys most with plugs everywhere..

There is a companion app available in the store which can be downloaded HERE  Quite good to have of course and pairing with your device can be a bit slow at time,having tried it on several devices i did find the pairing process tedious at first,after that it was fine on connecting the next morning most of the time..

Accuracy.

Well it was good with some hit and misses but this is quite common even with high end alternatives,overall though this needs room for improvement and for its first attempt we can allow for it i guess,there is an array of options to turn on and off so this gives you control over what you want recorded.Steps/Distance/ActivityTime/Calories/Battery Level/Calls/Messages/Medication Reminder/Alarm Timer all included so not to be sniffed at.

Comfort level.

It is big,for me though it was not an issue but its light and does not bother me,compared to a Moto 360 it look cheap,that it is for the price you pay,but overall it was comfortable to wear light and thin.You may find yourself having to twist it back depending how you wear it,some wear watches in general face down i wear mine face up but thats just me.Comparing to a Moto 360 might seem harsh but most come in around the same size,some other trackers maybe of a different shape too like rectangular which i think is a better fitting design as opposed to the typical circle or squared designs we see.

Design

Light,circular and cheap. For its first attempt its not bad but be vigilant. The clasp broke on our review unit which to be fair can happen to anyone,especially when its been used quite often,perhaps a spare clasp could be in the retail package in future to coincide with its second strap that comes with it which is a nice addition to the deal.

Display

Small and minimal,often having to tap the screen multiple times to view details this is annoying,there is more blank space than needed for its first attempt,perhaps this is the base design for going forward which is forgivable,nonetheless pointless space wasted.

Overall thoughts

Not bad really considered the price point (£29.99),considered you could add an extra couple of euros and get something better its does the job mostly well,again this is for people really looking not to spend much money and want to venture into the wearable world and this is ideal in that respect,Also its tough apart from the clasp so you can drop it and not worry,i look forward to whats ahead for this and hopefully the space wasted is going to used well in an upcoming model and then we can see what has been learned and how well the next model has learned from this one.
