Among local tech brands, Cherry Mobile has one of the most updated product offerings. The current surge of smartwatches, most notably the Apple Watch and the horde of Android Wear products, has prompted Cherry Mobile to come up with its own smartwatch. This is not the first time Cherry Mobile has sold a smartwatch as its offering was the G1 Watch Phone. The latest, called the Cherry Watch N5, is one that is closest to the smartwatch offerings in the market. In fact, it is so close in design to the Apple iWatch you’d probably mistake it for Apple’s product.
Cherry Watch N5 Price and Specs
The Cherry Watch N5 has not been officially launched but it is already in the company’s product brochures and price lists. The details on specs and pricing have been outed and my impression was one of curiosity more than excitement. I am curious if the Cherry Watch N5 will run with Android Wear, but Cherry Mobile’s silence with respect to the OS could mean that it will not run on Android Wear.
Here’s a rundown of the Cherry Watch N5’s specs.
CHERRY MOBILE CHERRY WATCH N5 SPECS
- 1.54-inch IPS display
- Smartphone Dialer
- Bluetooth 3.0
- Anti-Theft feature
- 0.3MP camera
- Single SIM (micro)
- up to 32GB microSD
- Price: Php1,999
From the specs above, you’ll notice the presence of a SIM slot. This means that the Cherry Watch N5 can be used to make calls and can be used as a standalone device for browsing the net. It also has Bluetooth so it also means that it can be connected to a phone the way current smartwatches are used.
What are your thoughts on the Cherry Mobile’s Cherry Watch N5? Do you think the P1,999 is affordable enough for the specs being offered?
