Why you should go for it:
If you are trying to get hand-on experience of a smart watch and with a little budget crunch, Spice Smart Pulse M-9010 is the one for you. It has competitors like Samsung Gear, LG G and Motorola 360, but the cost of the one from Spice, is the biggest attraction. Other merits are as follows-
- Standalone phone with dual SIM activity
- Make and receive call
- Other Android running platforms can be paired with the smart watch via Bluetooth
- 4cm full capacitive touchscreen
- VGA camera with LED flash
- Read and compose SMS
- A new fashion where your phone looks like a wrist-watch and worn like one.
Why you should not go for it:
With having said that, nothing is perfect in this world, every gadget has its own de-merits. Spice Smart Pulse M-9010 is not an exception. However it is offering a new fashion, but this smart watch can make you bite your nails later.
- Nowadays, internet connectivity gone so fast and unavailability of 3G service is by far the biggest de-merit of this smart watch.
- One needs tiny and point like fingers to dial the numbers from this 4cm screen.
- One cannot add more apps than what it already has.
However, it looks cheesy to impress kids over the gate or the ladies at your school, but this smart watch is not like that smart to have for tech-savvy people. This is not a great phone, nor even a great watch either. But as the price is not that high, you can probably give it a try, just don’t expect too much from Spice Smart Pulse M-9010.
