ZTE Quartz Smartwatch Review

The ZTE Quartz was the first Android Wear smartwatch launched by ZTE in 2017. Before its launch, it was a rumour about the device that it will be having the Android Wear 2.0 and a ‘Quartz’ movement. After the launch, we came to know that the rumours were true.

As said earlier, it is an Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch which comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, 768MB RAM and 4GB internal storage. If we talk about the display, it has a 400 x 400 1.4 inch AMOLED display. This display resolution is higher than the HUAWEI Watch 2 and Samsung Gear S3 Frontier. As far as the battery is concerned, it had the largest battery than any other Android Wear Smartwatch at the time of its launch with 500mAH.

Because of the Quartz movement and larger battery, the name of this smartwatch is ZTE Quartz. This name indicates the key feature for the device. With 500mAH battery, it should be able last at least two days on a single charge.

The ZTE Quartz has followed a simple theme and does not have fancy features. It doesn’t come with a heart-rate sensor and NFC. Moreover, it doesn’t have multiple buttons on the side of the case, nor does it have a rotating bezel. All in all, it is a smartwatch for those people who are not interested in the extra features and love simplicity. However, it is a 3G enabled smartwatch with a GPS module which can be used for outdoor navigations.

Let us talk about the looks of the ZTE Quartz. The display of the watch is sharp and vibrant with 1.4” AMOLED screen. The display is set in a brushed and angled stainless steel case. On the side of the case, there is a textured button that is used to turn on or off the smartwatch. Further functionalities and controls are done on the main touchscreen.    

In Addition, the ZTE Quartz has Bluetooth functionality that can be used to connect your smartwatch to your smartphone. It also comes with a Wi-Fi and 3G that you can use for connecting to the internet and download applications from the Google play store in your device and use the Apps that connect to the internet. Since this device is partnered with the carrier T-Mobile, you can use the data plans for using the 3G in order to not rely on the Wi-Fi.
