ZGPAX S19 Standalone and Tethered Smartwatch Review

20 Jul ZGPAX S19 Standalone and Tethered Smartwatch Review



This is a cross-over watch in that it can be tethered to your smartphone, as most smart watches (Apple watch included) do, or it can function as a standalone smart watch phone by installing a separate SIM card. This is a great intro watch for those not sure what way to go, or those that are sure that they want to get the calls/messages/notifications from their phone sometimes, but also want to go without reliance on having the phone with them other times. The separate SIM card allows for forwarding the phone’s primary number to the watch’s separate phone number, for example, to stay in touch. Another use would be to forward your office phone number to the watch’s number and have the cell phone line tethered to the watch. Then you can receive calls on both lines from your watch! So many possibilities.

The SIM you need is the full size one, not the micro or nano typically found in smart phones and watches these days, but at&t can send you one programmed with your new number when you order up an extra line. Speaking of which, if you’re on at&t’s family plan, you can add a line for $10. No data plan and no messaging, but for a basic line to forward to from your home line or office line or even cell phone when you don’t want to carry your cell but still be “reachable” via voice, that’s a great deal.

Because the SIM is the large standard size, you won’t be able to easily take your SIM from your cell phone and put it in this watch. If you’re thinking of doing that, then I’d steer you to the ZGPAX S8 watch, reviewed elsewhere on this channel. It’s got an easy access SIM card slot on the side to activate the standalone functions and, because it is a true Android watch, your data plan on your regular phone line will play nicely on the watch giving you all your features without needing your phone at all. Lots of options. You just need to define your use patterns to make an informed choice.

Anyway, this is a simple watch for about $65. It won’t take your pulse or count your steps or monitor your sleep habits or remind you to stand up and stretch like the No.1 S2 (or Galaxy Gear) will, but those watches don’t have the ability to install a SIM card. Again, what’s your use? And who said you only need one!

More to come, including what we want to see on the upcoming Apple Watch (or at least what we’d like to see Apple add to the AW2 design). Feel free to subscribe and you’ll be notified of our latest videos.

    guess it was way back when smart watches launched. So is that mean that a smart watch phone with bluetooth and wifi can do tethering with smart phone?

    It is not a full size SIM card. It is a mini SIM. Full size SIM cards are as big as a credit card

    Can I use my own sim card from AT&T Android?
    Or will I need to get a separate dedicated line to use this watch
    to make/receive phone calls?

    If I have internet data on the SIM card would I be able to tether/wifi hotspot the watch so I would be able to use it on the phone?

    I have a quick question: Can you use the browser by utilizing your phone's data? I dont have a sim card and don't like the idea of paying for yet another line so intend to use this tethered to my Galaxy S5.

    is there a smart watch only with the posibility to insert a memory card? something like this watch but I do not need the sim card option. Also I am looking for a watch with methal strap. The only one I sow is No1 G2, but the memory is small and no headphones connection. I am looking for something less than 100 $. What you recomand?

    PHONE CALLS TO/FROM TETHERED SMARTWATCHES

    There's a lot of confusion as to how these watches, when tethered to a phone actually handle calls. OK, let's settle this with facts. I have my LG G3 running latest KitKat tethered to my No.1 G2 and we're going to make and receive some calls.

    1. Calling out from the watch. What happens?
    If the phone was dark, it lights up and goes into the phone dialer app and places the call. When the call is connected, at the bottom, it indicates it is routing the call to Bluetooth (bottom right button). When the call answers you listen and speak from the watch. If you want to take the call on the phone instead, after it is connected, you can either tap the Bluetooth button to send the call back to the phone, or tap the Speaker button on the bottom left of the phone screen and the call will be routed to the phone's speaker. If you want to go back to the watch, just tap the Bluetooth button and you're back on the watch. Both the watch and phone have End buttons to terminate the call. They both have Mute buttons as well, and you can mute/unmute the call from the device you are using to speak from.

    2. Calling out from the phone. What happens?
    If you are bluetooth connected to your watch, the call from your phone works just like the call from your watch. The call goes through, and the Bluetooth button is active, routing the call to the watch. Didn't want that? No problem. Either touch the Bluetooth button to take the call private on your phone, or touch the Speaker button to go into phone speaker mode.

    1. Receiving a call. What happens?
    As expected, both the phone and watch ring. You can slide to answer or cancel from either the phone or watch. If you answer on the watch, you hear and speak from the watch. You have the End and Mute buttons as before, and a speaker icon in the upper right to adjust your call volume. When you open your phone, you'll find you're in your dialer app and the Bluetooth button is activated. Tap it to take the call private on your phone or tap Speaker as we discussed before. Now, if you answer with your phone instead of your watch everything is normal except the Bluetooth button is activated and the call is routed to your watch. Your watch wakes up and receives the call just as if you had answered with your watch. To get the call back on the phone, tap the Bluetooth button and the call is on your phone. Tap again and the call hops back to your watch.

    Remember, your phone is control central for routing calls. Your watch will answer, hang up, mute, unmute, but that's all. Transferring of the call between devices happened from your phone. There is no way I know of to have the call, when answered by the phone, stay on the phone without touching the Bluetooth button, but that only takes a second so you can have phone connection before the normal time it would take to say "Hello".

    PHONE CALLS TO/FROM CROSSOVER SMARTWATCHES

    Now, the above process appears to be the normal way all these tethered watches handle calls, even the crossover ones with their own SIM card. In that case, only the tethered calls can go back and forth with the originating tethered phone. Calls to the SIM number on the watch stay on the watch. They aren't tetherable to the phone. NOTE: I haven't verified this with my S19. When I get to try it, if anything changes from these comments, I'll update it here.

    PHONE CALLS TO/FROM STANDALONE SMART WATCH PHONES

    Finally, for the true, untethered standalone Android smart watch phones, Apparently they assume you won't be tethering at all, so they work exactly like a standard smart phone. Eventually, as the market matures, I think it will become clear that we want both independent capability on our standalones and codependent connection with our actual phones, so the same basic call tethering will emerge even on the standalone devices. For now, the only option I know of is the Google Play Store app "SWAPP Link" (Smart Watch APP Link) which allows you to answer and hang up calls from the standalone watch, but the sound stays on the phone. You can get your notification and do a few other cool things, but no sound back and forth over the required Bluetooth link. It's more like a remote control device when it comes to calls.

    PHONE CALLS TO/FROM APPLE WATCH

    Since it appears the actual first generation Apple Watch will be a tethered watch to your top-of-the-line iPhone running the absolute latest iOS, your phoneology will probably be like a tethered phone, but we don't know until the thing arrives. When one of you gets one, please post here how it works, OK? The Apple Watch clone we picture here in several videos works just like the standard tethered watch described above for the No.1 S2.

    PHONE CALLS TO/FROM ANDROID WEAR SMARTWATCHES

    I have no experience in this area. Since there are several out and many folks using them, can one of you please tell us how you handle phone calls from your Android Wear? Is it like the basic tethered watch or something different? Thanks!
