Diggro D106 hands on: A low-cost smartwatch with full featured Android apps

The Diggro D106 is a sub-$100 watch with some-more facilities we can suppose in a compress housing.

It is a good looking, vast watch, with a zinc amalgamate box and silicone wristband. It looks like it is dash resistant — nonetheless Diggro states that a watch is not waterproof.

Inside a watch, there is a Media Tek 6580 Quad Core CPU regulating during 1.0 GHz, 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM packaged into a 1.39 in. hole AMOLED screen. External measure are 1.88 in. extraneous hole of a dial face with a abyss of 0.43 inches

The behind of a surrounding has a cover for a nano sim container that is unequivocally fiddly to fit. Fortunately there is a screwdriver supposing to remove a tiny screw and insert a sim.

You will need tweezers to reposition a screw behind in a screw hole — even if we have tiny hands. Diggro has supposing dual gangling screws should we remove one of these tiny objects

It takes about 2 – 2.5 hours to entirely assign a watch, that gives we about 6 hours of wear time before it needs to be charged again — distant reduction wear time if GPS is enabled.

If we do not have a sim inside a watch, any calls uncover adult as notifications by Bluetooth.

I do not have fat fingers, nonetheless we found that joining to Wi-Fi was unequivocally formidable — generally with a formidable password. The shade is a tiny chronicle of a full Android OS, and tough to see some of a text.

Dialing numbers was formidable — and mis-dialing was a unchanging occurrence. we also found responding calls embarrassing. Everyone detonate out shouting when we hold a watch to my face to answer a call — we wish we had been regulating Bluetooth headphones during a time.

All in all, a Diggro D106 is a good low-cost intelligent watch with extendable functionality. Although this competence be a tiny vast for some wrists, it is a tiny cost to compensate for all a features.
