It'S smartwatchtix.com inside this box. I'Ve got something really really nice and the box alone is really nice. This time of year we start thinking about gifts and this particular watch. It gives a check mark against just about everything you can think of. First of all, it's a really nice design looks and feels pretty much like an apple watch inside when you open it up well, the first thing you see is a beautiful layout. What are we looking at we're looking at a final watch, this is another one of the new designs coming to us from final off of their aliexpress store, it's called the fk 78 and it's an iwo12 pro it's got, amongst other things, a rotating knob navigation system, Which you're about to see it's super sized 1.78 inch screen and the screen to body ratio is really large, 91 percent, so that means there's very little border around it. The left and right borders are as narrow as about three millimeters and there's. No chin camford screen. Absolutely not, as you can see, you can get it in a variety of color combinations with different bands on it as well spec wise. What we're about to look at is a smartwatch with alloy silicon, all kinds of different options of black gold and silver 320 by 385, high definition, ips screen in that 1.78 inch format; okay, a 2.5 d, curved capacitive, full fit touch screen, and the rotating knob for Navigation you've got bluetooth, push for all of the different messages and things from your phone heart rate detection, with the pedometer step count all of those things you can do sedentary reminders, sleep monitoring, field, mobile phone function, that's that anti loss stuff, two way, search and bluetooth.
Music playback and get this you can play the music on the watch and it supports bluetooth calling yes, that means it's got a mic speaker everything all in this beautiful watch. Battery spec is about 320 milliamp hour battery. It'S got vibration, alarm, clocks, calendars, everything else. You could possibly think of here's the spec list, we'll just whip through that. A lot of the different functions you can see are supported, and these are the languages that are supported as well. They call it square, but it's really rectangular mediatek processor made for adults. Fk 78 is the model number and let's get into it the module and then design it for building an amazing lifestyle inside here we've got the bands. Wow wow really nicely packaged then notice they're the slide in apple style of bands, which probably means the module mates with that and there's a second set of sports bands in the watch as well. So we got the black with the black combination but, like i said, there's lots of different color options you can choose from. As far as charging goes, it uses a dock which is packaged in here usb connector and the dock that will allow you to put the phone with the bands on it in here that's the recess for the knob. I bet then let's see if we can get the module out too. Oh yeah and it's already packaged in its own little sleeve, which we can unwrap.
So you can see. This would really really make a nice gift very nice, uh packaging and unpackaging process charging diodes. Here all the goodies on the bottom, for connecting with your body, we slide the bands in which we'll do here in a moment and as far as charging goes, it just drops right in there and yep that's. All you need to do. The manual is right here. Fk 78 smartwatch user manual in english, we'll page through this now there's the fit fly qr code that you can scan to get the app or you can just click on the link in our show. Notes down below we'll have a direct link over there to the google play store that you can bring it down from there. Here'S information about the layout of the watch and we'll just leave these pages here for you to freeze, frame and read at your leisure. In case you lose the manual or you'd like to look through the manual before you even buy the watch. It'S got some nice color pictures shows you all the different screens that you'll be able to see on the watch looks like it even includes a calendar calculator which is nice, some more basic information yeah. This is a very, very nice upgrade. This is, as you know, a whole new revolution for final. They were around many years ago, doing some android, watches and kind of disappeared for a while and now they've come back with really really top notch watches chinese version on this side it looks like uncle ticks.
Has got to put this thing together and charge it up for you. Are you ready get ready to see something you have not seen before? I love it when i can say that i'm going to press and hold the button. It vibrated and first of all, we've got a very colorful opening to a brand new user interface, which is so complicated. I actually had to look at the manual to figure it out now. First, take a notice so it's connecting because i've already paired it to the phone. Take a notice at how full and rich that screen is connection fail. Oh well, we'll be doing the app later. Really really nice full screen watch face when i swipe down, i get into a whole different form of settings displaying alarm timer stopwatch, and i have to go this way from that level to get find my device your display settings about, and then remote capture reset and Off there's those three panels of three different things and that's all there is when i swipe to the right i get into this panel, and i can't wait to tell you about that, but not right now, when i instead go this way, i get into an overall Summary of step count and exercises started. Okay in the sports section, a remote music player that'll play the music through the watch. Mind you, if you've paired it right a remote, notifier that's, going to tell you if you have any notifications and back to the watch face when i go up now i get into this page.
That has a lot of things like twist, your wrist to see the time silent mode, a super bright, flashlight yeah. It just makes the whole screen bright. White um, i don't know what that thing. Is anybody got an idea and by the way, it's kind of washed out i'm low in brightness, but you're getting a very baby blue light blue? This is a much more darker blue i'll tone it down here in a minute: that's, your wi fi connection, uh, sorry, bluetooth connection and come back here, um that's, going into low power mode there that turned it dimmed it down a little bit, huh and uh, and It brightened that up slightly and then i can go into this lock mode for the screen, which i guess is giving you super low power and then back to regular and there it just connected bluetooth and it's trying to connect to the phone again. So it goes through all of that stuff, but the lowest power mode. Is you lock that uh and you've got that going forward? So i told you you got to read the manual now on this one, so that's all from that direction. That'S, all from that direction and we've looked over here at all these panes and now now, oh whoa. Look at that isn't that pretty you've seen that before on somebody, else's watch i'm, not sure who couldn't have been the one that looks just like this. Would it be, but i got ta, ask you: have you ever tried this on an apple watch watch carefully now nothing up my sleeve, nothing in my fingers, but i'm gon na take this little knob and i'm gon na twist it and i'm gon na zoom.
In so i can make these as big as i like. Look at that look at that. Look at that yeah that's gon na impress your folks with a regular apple watch. Anyway, you have that interface, and you have this other interface that i showed you a moment ago. That looks like this now they're calling this list style and it's all those little icons. You saw before in three panels that are divided into six items per panel and several pages, one two, three four five five separate pages, so let's walk through them. You got some time grab your popcorn okay in here. We can first take a look at the languages. These are all the supported languages in the watch. If you see yours jump for joy, if you don't well sorry about that it's, not all of them on the planet, earth but it's, a good selection of them and, of course, we're going to be in english. For this review – and you can set your name display and last name first for your phone calling yeah, this does bluetooth phone calling here we've got the qr code that you scan. You could do that right now to download the uh app for your phone or again use the link in the show notes – and here is motion, which is where you can flip to mute, a call flip to mute the alarm or your wake up, uh the time When you twist your wrist, which is turned on and of course, lots of ways, you can turn that on and off now you've got the siri or google assistant.
If you're paired to the phone, you can do that power savings and power off that's. On your first panel now, this gets even deeper now we're into calling and messaging here's your messages, your dialer, which is your regular phone dialer, that you can make a call, no sim needed. This one uses the uh the number in your phone. You have to be within bluetooth range of your phone, so you have to have your phone with you, but you can make and receive phone calls and there's your phone book, which will be the phone book that's in your phone transferred over to your watch overall call Logs the bluetooth connection to make sure you're hooked up, and then we get into sports and there's your basic pedometer that we saw in that panel when we swiped over from the very top that's, the second of five pages we're getting good now so after communications, you Get into fitness now let me tell you with this watch all for the flat fee of whatever they're charging you you get a lifetime subscription to a pilates class and a fitness workout class. Yes, they are actually part of the watch. Watch this i'm gon na go into pilates. I get a whole sequence of activities in a pilates class and i just jump wherever i want to. I can start at number one arm circles. What do you want? A bit clamshell all right, let's, take a look at a clam shell they're 30 seconds each.
It gives you a countdown okay and you clap your knees together. It looks like is that too bright? How about? If i angle it a little bit countdown a drawback from this there's, no audio – ah at least a beep – that would be nice, so i know i'm not going to be looking at my watch all the time, but it doesn't. So you have to kind of gauge it glance at your watch and when it's over it's going to automatically switch to the next one in sequence, so you can jump in anywhere. You want, you can repeat them, i presume. If you want to – and of course you could start all over from the beginning after the clam shell comes the next one and there you go you're going to be doing what looks like a butt, lift or something yeah and nice and slow. So if you're able to see the watch, you'll be able to kind of visually coach yourself and you might want to set it up where you have you know, hang this over your eyeglasses or something for the first few times clamshell went into supine hip. Oh, that sounds fancy and it goes through the whole workout same thing. Now. How do i get out of it push the button? Why not same thing now for a fitness class? Look at all these things. You got an opening and closing jump to warm you up. You got all of these activities all the way down to a lateral, flexion arm brace sounds like martial arts to me.
Sit ups. Push ups climb the steps all of that's in here two complete workout programs, along with the tab for your sleep time last night's sleep time broken up into hours and different places here, we've got a temperature in a city that's set from your phone in degrees centigrade. I didn't see in the app a way you could change that or even a way where you could set the the weather, but anyway it's supposed to push the weather in here and not doing that. Yet your overall sports section, where you can choose between outdoor indoor walking oops, i guess i was close enough to touch it in the walking. You see you're going to get time. Heart rate, your pace, your calories burned, and it does a nice job of giving you charts for heart rate and pace as well, as i believe, you're tapped, track against the map. If you can get the map working, outdoor, indoor, walking, outdoor indoor running, you've got cycling and then you've got your sports records that will show up in here, but they don't go anywhere. It just gives you a summary of it. You should be able to see it deeper on the app itself that's all there and then, of course, you can get into heart rate with a different kind of chart. We haven't seen before bouncing around it's all icon driven it's, not a real chart. Of course, of your heart rate, but just tap on measuring it's, going to go through using green diodes in the back it's going to be relatively quick and giving you a measurement and once it locks in and vibrates, and gives you a number it's done.
It'S done. That'S, your q, there you go measurement ended 82 and it's stopped it's, not going to be iterating it to another uh. Another number same with blood pressure and blood oxygen, both of those work the same way you've got bluetooth music, like i said that, will stream from your phone to the watch. What do we got here, countdown timer, so you can put in a two minute timer. You can let it run on its own. You can go about doing other things like checking other alarms that you could add. You got your stopwatch count up timer, in other words and it's still doing that countdown timer. The next panel. Is you find your device there's. The overall display stuff here's, where i changed from listing everything like we're, seeing here from the apple bubble style your overall brightness, which i'm actually going to make even lower because it's just washing out on the screen too much. There will go all the way down to one and i got screen timeouts set for 60 seconds, but you can go, i believe, as low as 5 seconds. That'S display settings we've seen. Oh, no, we haven't yet we've got bluetooth settings where you can turn your bluetooth on and off your overall clock style date. Time time format is all settable in here. Sound volume levels display international again is where you'll see the languages reset and overall about which is where it tells you that this is the fk 78 for tethering purposes, versions, release date and time stuff like that that's all in settings yeah.
You can use this as a remote camera thing there's about which we just saw, and then here is a reset to erase all the data on the watch. If you want to and we're back to the very beginning – and we did it all in under two minutes – because the alarm hasn't gone off yet right so now now i want to get you back to the watch faces come on here. There is a watch face. Okay and we're down at level one in brightness and it's, still washing out that's the one that they kind of use as their marketing piece, because it's so beautiful. But i can either press and hold and scroll through them or with the magic knob. I can twist and take you to a variety of different watch faces which we're going to do right now: there's another one here's, a very colorful. This is using a lot of the animated capabilities and there my two minutes are up. So you got a good timer that runs in the background. Another colorful watch face that displays differently: they're small looping, animations here's, just a basic, simple one: there's, a very creative 3d shadowing large display uncle ticks made this one from a picture of a flower using that custom setting there's a toy store, digital one, which is exactly What you could do with whatever picture you want, if you do digital here's, something they've made with it, looks like different materials.
Next, you allow location access and running. In the background, and then it's going to attempt to pair with the watch and if you've got everything set up properly, the watch should appear right there. Here we go, fk 78 i've got to go down to fit fly and turn that on and now and now i'm there and all of the data that i've collected so far, including my latest step count and everything else is updated on the app yeah i've done. This before already – and i just wanted to show you how quick you can go through and set this up we're connected i've got my step count there. I can go in and show you a little bit about it. Doesn'T have a whole lot in here day week month and year is uh all divided in here then uh, the sports section. This is where you have any uh sport records that you've done walking around or running. You know the activity that you can do and there's two different mapping systems in here that um you can choose in the setup too, the chinese one and then um, google, the google maps sleep time – would show up here your historical sleep for deep, shallow and bad Time i haven't seen bedtime that's a different one um. I guess that's when you're awake or you're having a bad dream, not sure, but you can actually um see your your divisions of time here and then the different shadings will be there and you notice it isn't.
Even fully translated, yet we've got some chinese still waiting to go to english, and then heart rate will be over here. It'S going to show you your your basic chart and your extremes based on the settings of your age and gender and all of the other stuff. Should show up here so you know which category stitch you're in so basic overall fitness and health, app with just heart rate and just basic sports and just speedometer and basic uh sleep time i'd really prefer to see a better app than this, but it's. What they've got for now here? It is you've got things you can adjust on here. Raising the watch to see the time. Of course, you can set that in the watch itself. This is pretty cool, select the watch type. These are the different ones, we've seen as we scroll through with the bar with the uh, the squarely knob, and you can actually do a custom dial in here where you can create your own picture by taking a picture or choosing from your photos, and you can Select different styles of pointers or you can go digital and you can select different styles of of digital as well different colors and, of course, you can put it in different positions. So a little bit of customization, digital or analog, with a photo that you choose is available in here as well, and of course, you select any of these it'll just set it up on your watch directly or you can just twirl into them with the knob sedentary Reminders are available, alarm clocks, your sleep settings for um, turning it on or off and when you go to sleep and when you wake up, not sure about that, i thought most of them since when you went to sleep and since when you got up and reported Back that information to you, rather than you telling them i'm going to go to bed at 2, 200.
Well, the tiny little speaker is underneath here and it's, not all that loud and a call would be representative to siri talking so i'm going to set up a siri thing for you and i'm gon na be quiet. You'Re gon na have to crank your volume up to hear it uh because it's low and i won't speak immediately afterwards, so you can turn it down. But here we go. You have to come over to this panel and to this location. There'S. No fast, quick button. Push to get into siri but or the google, but when you do you can you press it? It'Ll activate and be ready for you and all you've got to do is either use the keyword or tap it and go who created the first smartwatch according to study.com steve mann, an inventor from canada, arguably designed the first smart watch in 1998, though there were other Sophisticated watches and wrist, did you hear that? Thank you, steve mann, for creating the first smart watch, so there you have it from phi now. The fk, 78 it's uh apple, look alike. Well, actually, better than an apple look alike. It'S longer it has the knob not on the pictures, which is the odd thing the knobs missing on their pictures, but it's definitely on the watch and, as you can see, you can actually use it to twirl in different modes to change, watch faces or scroll through Things uh to expand or contract the bubble menu for the uh, the layout of the different apps.
Anyway, you can pick it up directly from the final store at aliexpress by following the link in the show notes glad to have you hop over there if you're interested in picking this one up and yeah we'll be back with a lot more got a few. More final watches and each one is totally unique from the others.
