Sometimes, choosing a watch can be complicated, especially because there are so many different specifications, brands and features — some of which we ended up not using — however, they are features that we like to emphasize that we have. For the more discerning, the task can be time-consuming, but the return on this time spent is the satisfaction of the product we purchase.
Nowadays, the watch has started to integrate new features that go beyond the most basic objective — informing the time — something that we’ve seen to be the path followed by mobile phones — more like a computer than ever — but not losing its essence, it has become become more functional. Bracelets and hybrids have become attractive proposals for those looking to exercise and be always up to date, however, some watches manage to fulfill this purpose, containing even more daily gear.
More than a fashion accessory, the watch maintains its imposing characteristic of appreciation and concern with time management, but allows things as simple as answering calls, recording a walk (or other type of exercise), monitoring your heart rate, the stress and even the inclusion of notebooks. However, depending on the number of features it may have, these watches can reach very high values – as happens with the most highly regarded analog watches of the highest watchmaking – but that’s not what we present today.
O Zeblade GTR 2 it doesn’t have four wheels nor can it go from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in 2.7s, however, it ensures that every second of your life is followed step by step with everything a smartwatch can offer at a more affordable price. This round model with 1.28″ of screen has a finish worthy of some more expensive smart watches, with personalized dials, answering calls and water resistance.
The clock is accompanied by a Realtek 8762C processor — specialized for Bluetooth 5.0 devices — of quite acceptable quality, together with a touchscreen of 240×240 pixels that will allow you to see everything you want on a small screen. This is only possible thanks to a 230 mAh battery that can be charged in less than 1.5 hours (90 minutes), achieving a autonomy of 7 days (in normal use) and 14 days in energy saving mode.

The build quality is, many times, a concern because we can know with what we count when looking for any device, but especially in a watch (which we use daily). The GTR 2 impresses for the diversity of metallic elements that make up the equipment. The main body is made of a resistant Zinc alloy, while the buttons are made of stainless steel, given the use they will be put to, and the beveled part (where you can see the minutes) is made of a highly durable aluminum alloy.
