Where to buy

We bought on Aliexpress here. At the time of purchase was worth $ 55, depending on configuration and color. Comes in three colors: white, black and Golden. We chose classic black, fans of Apple technology is likely to appeal to white. By the way, looks very similar to the Apple Watch.

Slightly bigger than a matchbox, this device has a hand strap which is easily removed and can be put in your pocket using as a normal smartphone.

The quality and appearance

In icons it resembles an Apple device:

There are Russian and English.

What he knows:

  • To call, receive calls and SMS;
  • To measure heart rate, steps, distance;
  • The tracking of sleep cycles, gentle awakening alarm clock during «slow wave sleep»;
  • Integrated camera HD 720p quality for open or covert filming, audio recorder
  • The screen is 2.2 inches as much as what is immediately hard to believe. The fact that a complete lack of framework on the sides makes it visually much less;
  • Battery capacity 500 mAh.

So, to watch movies, videos, music, etc. For music lovers, or listening to music during exercise has a Bluetoth support. Maximum memory card capacity of 32 GB, while free private memory is almost there.

OS and strap

The operating system is something of a simplified Android. Despite its Chinese origin, is not buggy and works quite briskly. That’s what really frustrating is screen 240*320, true, and size is not so big, but I would like more.

The strap is the standard plastic for smartbrief, you can buy a spare, personally we the seller before sending asked to send Lee a couple of spare in the kit, after our agreement, he was issued a new account for 4$ and the package was really a couple of bracelets in store. But they can also be ordered separately.

The pros and cons

Pros:

  • Two in one: can be used as a smart watch wristband and smartphone, but the latest version is not only for demanding users;
  • Pretty high quality the sound of conversation and music;
  • The ability to use as a voice recorder and even a hidden camera. Though noteworthy, but now many have become accustomed to this type of devices after the appearance of the Apple Watch and other «smart» wrist watch. Worth noting: does not fall under the category of «prohibited» spy stuff;
  • Price. In comparison with the same Apple gadgets price is very low. And cheap spare straps.

Cons:

  • Screen with very low resolution. Although, due to the smoothing to work with them quite comfortably and not immediately evident;
  • Almost no internal memory, you need insert micro SD card;
  • A small amount of battery. Under normal use will last for a day, very active — not enough on the day.

Conclusion

Overall, AEKU i5 plus a good replacement for the Apple Watch, if you really want yourself a «toy», but finances do not allow. The price tag is quite low, functions as the bracelet is missing, but as the device is — it is doubtful that serious games do not play, and in social.networks is not convenient to use. At the same time, call, record videos, photos, record audio, listen to the music — it all works fine and is stable!
