The Best Cheap Chinese Smartwatches Compared

It wasn’t long ago that Chinese products had a poor reputation, but lately the tide has been turning and Chinese companies like Huami and Xiaomi are giving traditional tech companies a run for their money. These companies are setting their sights on the growing smartwatch market and there are plenty of amazing products at surprisingly low prices. Let’s take a look at the best Chinese smartwatches that are currently available; I’ve only chosen those that are quality products with premium features.

Amazfit Stratos

One of the best cheap smartwatches out now is the Amazfit Stratos. This growing smartwatch brand has a range of devices and this is their flagship. The Stratos is fully waterproof and comes with both GPS and heart rate monitor. The watch is built with premium glass and is one of the best looking smartwatches I’ve even used.

The Stratos is on the thick side but I’ve still found it comfortable to wear all day. You’ll be able to track your fitness, sleep, steps and daily calorie burn with the Stratos and have it all synced to your smartphone for later analysis. This is one of the best smartwatches for under $200 in my opinion, providing both function and style.

PROS:
  • Many Tracking Features
  • GPS + Heart Rate Monitor
  • Cheap
  • Excellent App

CONS:
  • Thick
  • Transflective Screen Lacks Vibrancy

Kospet Hope 4G Lite

This powerful smartwatch is basically a mini phone on your wrist. With 4G connection and a nano simcard slot, the Kospet Hope can pretty much do everything your smartphone can do. Make and receive calls straight from your watch, send messages, whatsapps and even video calls thanks to the 8mp camera. Powered by 3GB of RAM, this is a very powerful smartwatch for its relatively low price.

The 1.39″ AMOLED screen looks crisp and vibrant, displaying icons and text as sharply as you would expect from a phone. The Kospet comes with several tracking features including a heart rate monitor, pedometer and professional sports mode. GPS + GLONASS provides super accurate location tracking which you can view on the watches map app. The Kospet is one of the most feature packed smartwatches for under $200, in many ways it matches up to the Apple and Samsung watches but at a much lower price.

PROS:
  • GPS + Heart Rate Monitor
  • 4G Data Connection
  • Camera
  • Bright, Clear Screen
  • 3GB RAM
  • Premium Materials

Amazfit Bip

Here’s another Amazfit smartwatch, this time on the cheaper end of its range. The Bip has proven to be an extremely popular watch thanks to its super low price and excellent features. The Bip comes fitted with both GPS and a heart rate monitor; quite amazing for the price and size of the watch. It’s most amazing feature, however, is the battery life. The Bip can last 5 weeks on a single charge which is by far the longest battery life of any smartwatch out right now. The basic color screen and not entirely accurate heart rate monitor are weak points, but the Bip provides many of the features of a watch three times its price.

PROS:
  • Very Cheap
  • GPS + Heart Rate Monitor
  • Sports + Sleep Tracking
  • 6 Week Battery Life

CONS:
  • Basic Screen
  • Plastic Body
  • No Apps

Huawai Honor Magic

Another feature packed smartwatch from Huawai for not much over $100. The Honor Magic is one of the first smartwatches to monitor blood pressure continuously, adding to the existing heart rate monitor. This makes the Huawai Honor one of the best value health tracking watches out now. The watch isn’t quite as powerful as other smartwatches on this list but it makes up for this with a stunning design and additional sensors, such as NFC.

At only 9.8mm thick the Honor Magic is among the thinner smartwatches available now, certainly one of the thinnest with this many features. The 1.2 inch AMOLED screen is designed to be bright and easy to read both indoors and outdoors. It utilises manual dial selection rather than touch screen, which can often be more intuitive if done right. Huawai has places a lot of emphasis on the health tracking capabilities of this watch along with its premium design and long battery life.

PROS:
  • GPS + Heart Rate Monitor
  • Waterproof
  • NFC
  • Clear, Bright Screen
  • Thin Body
  • Long Battery Life

CONS:
  • Small Screen
  • Not Much RAM

Zeblaze THOR 4 Dual

Another 4G smartwatch for under $200 with a 1.4″ AMOLED screen with high definition display and Gorilla Glass. The Zeblaze Thor 4 is a feature packed smartwatch that also includes TWO 5mp cameras. Take video calls straight from your watch or have full conversations over WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. The Metalic body is stylish and not too thick. GPS and GLONASS promises super accurate location detection and movement tracking. The Zeblaze includes all the standard tracking features including heart rate, sleep, steps, speed and calorie burn.

This is one of the cheapest smartwatches with 4G data capability and despite its low price in neither looks nor feels cheap. If you are looking for a mini smartphone you can wear on your wrist then the Zeblaze is worth checking out.

PROS:
  • 4G Data Connection
  • GPS + Heart Rate Monitor
  • Two Cameras
  • Large AMOLED Screen
  • Metalic Body
  • Low Price

CONS:
  • No Android Apps

The OLED screen is bright, colorful and fully responsive. This is also the only Amazfit watch with an inbuilt microphone, allowing you to dictate messages and take calls straight from your watch.
