Design & Build Quality
IWO W17 smartwatch has an elegant design inspired by Apple watch Series 7 with 1.9" 2.5D bigger curved HD screen, on the right side a crown rotation button used to change watch faces while on home screen, to zoom in/zoom out menu, or to scroll menu, under that there comes home button and in between there comes a mic hole used in calling. On other side there comes speaker grill for calling voice.
Overall the body is slim and light weight, made of high quality aluminum, having 45.4mm big size dial, 13mm thick, finishing is out class. Comes in 4 colors,
- Silver with White Strap
- Black with Black strap
- Rose Gold with Pink Strap
- Blue with Blue strap
Although its budget friendly smart watch but nothing is compromising in that smartwatch as its the best series 7 clone of all times.
If you look at the back side of watch its made of plastic material and you will see sensors for monitoring and charging pins, although now series 7 clones are coming with wireless charging but due to low budget and bigger display that pins charging can be compromised.
Watch comes with silicon straps in different colors as I said above, Black, blue, Pink, White.
Good quality silicon straps are pre-installed in the watch and are of 42-44mm straps and can be exchanged with any other 42-44mm straps also metal, leather and fancy 42-44mm straps can be installed according to your own choice
The best part of W17 smartwatch is its display which I like the most. I am looking for that type of screen from so long, so many smartwatches in series 6 and 7 comes with full display but some bezels can be there either all sides or specially at the bottom but that smartwatch comes with bigger bezel less 1.9 inches screen largest among all apple watch clones in the market so far. The difference is only 1 inch compared to the new copy, but you will notice that the chin of the edges is very narrow than before, The glass is 2.5D curved to display better content and details, and because it has a resolution of 320×390 Pixels with a high refresh rate and this makes it more attractive in the hand.
Definitely its best budget smartwatch with bigger brighter display. especially not let you down while wearing in sunlight.
Almost all smartwatches comes with pre-installed several watch faces same thing is with the W17 smartwatch and you can change watch faces with the help of rotating crown or by log touch the display and then swipe to chose watch face or you can install watch faces of your own choice from "MActive Pro" app available 100s of watch faces and also you can ad custom watch face from phone gallery as well.
IWO W17 smartwatch is life water proof which means its sweat proof or splash proof, its not recommended to wear while swimming as its not made for that it will harm the watch while exposing it with hot water, salt water etc. So i don't recommend to wear while swimming. and if you wear and it got wet the its suggested to use it after drying it so it will be with you as long as possible.
