Although it features the similar circular design as seen on the Motorola 360, a black bezel was found in the bottom which could be slightly annoying! The whole user experience is fluid which is acceptable in any level.

Although it wasn’t certified by official, the OneTouch watch features a 2.5D display glass on the top and post-processed for fingerprint resistance.

The charging port is hidden inside the belt which makes it more water resistant and durable in long term usage.

The OneTouch Wear does not runs on Android Wear and compatible to both iOS and Android ecosystem. During our testing period, we felt that it lacks of some customizability compared to Android Wear. However, user might get used to it in short period of time.

Alcatel stated that the OneTouch Wear and Idol 3 will be coming into Malaysia in around 2 months time. The smartphone will be priced at RM800 to RM1200 while the OneTouch Wear might be the cheapest smartwatch at this moment (We couldn’t reveal the secret..)
How much will the smartwatch be? Let’s anticipate for its arrival in sooner time!
