ZGPAX S15 Bluetooth Smartwatch review – with good battery backup

The ZGPAX S15 is another low cost Smartwatch that comes with built in microphone and speaker. It is a Bluetooth watch that also includes a camera (on the strap) and 8GB of internal storage.

Box Pack
The box contains the S15 smartwatch, user manual, data cable and micro USB to 3.5mm audio cable. You can use the micro USB to 3.5mm cable to connect wired earphone.

Design and Display
The watch design look great it is silver metal with plastic body and the wrist is made of good quality soft rubber. The watch is heavy it weighs about 71 grams and is 12.87mm thick. Build quality is good, the watch looks tough.

There is built in mic and loudspeaker. The mic is placed on the front bottom curve and speaker is placed on the front top curve on the metal frame. It is a capacitive touch screen display of size 1.54 inches supporting 240 x 240 pixels resolution. Touch is smooth and viewing angles is okay – not that great. There are 3 touch sensitive dedicated navigational buttons.

When the screen is switched on you can see the glass edges inside when you look from a particular angle. The image quality is good. The strap can be easily replaced however the buckle strap comes with built in camera and it would be difficult getting a replacement in case the strap is damaged.

The watch does not auto switch on when you twist the wrist just like it does on premium smart watches. You will need to manually press the power button to switch on.

Micro USB port and power button is placed on the right side. There is a reset button on the back. Battery of 360 mAh capacity comes built in.

Performance
The ZGPAX S15 supports Bluetooth 3.0 and comes with 8GB of internal storage. You can use the micro USB port for charging the device and as a USB drive when connected with a PC.

Performance is good and smooth. There is a 2MP built in camera as mentioned on the box however the camera is with VGA resolution and it can shoot only still images.

There is pedometer to monitor your steps / calories burned. You can use the watch as a standalone audio player (making use of the 8GB storage). You can also use the watch for making and receiving calls without touching your smartphone. There is mic and speaker built it. The speaker sound is quite loud but at max volume the speaker vibrates.

There is a home screen that shows the time, date, Bluetooth / battery status and quick buttons to call logs, message and camera. Tap the screen to switch between home screen and watch face. There are 3 watch faces you can choose from.

You will need to download the BT notification app and install it to manage notification. The QR code (for the link) is on the watch (check video review).

Battery
The 360 mAh battery does a pretty good job. I have been using the watch for almost 35 hours and there is still 50% battery left. I am getting battery backup of over 2 days with normal to moderate usage.

Verdict
Apart from the speaker vibration and VGA camera I did not find any issues. The battery backup is really good much, much better than the AtonGM W007 watch.

A good low cost option if you are looking for a Smartwatch with good battery backup.
