Now there is kind of a funny story behind this company name. It comes from new cow bee. Vagina wait a minute. Why would you call well newbie is slang for awesome in chinese. It used to be a bit vulgar, but it’s common. Now i mean maybe don’t say in front of your chinese in laws, but otherwise it’s, okay, anyway, i’ve never heard of nubia. Until they made this watch. We have a lot of cell phone companies that made generate good, but unremarkable phones. This product really sticks out, though, and they’re calling it a wearable, smartphone let’s, unbox it and see if it lives up to that. So i watch a lot of unboxing channels and for some reason the dudes always want to use some crazy deadly. Looking light to open the box when the box cutter is the white tool for the job, since it has an adjustable depth, so the braid won’t hurt the contents. I mean i can really throw stones in my glass house. I unbox things in funny clothes, so i can’t talk, but i decided i should try it out myself and see if it makes the unboxing better chinese style. The best part is, i actually borrowed this from the auntie next door, it’s her extra one. Only in china can you get in an elevator full of all. People are for war off to do their morning. Exercise okay, let’s, give it a shot. So this is the new beer, bluetooth earphone, because the nubia watch doesn’t have an earphone, jack, let’s, open the box and see.
I think this one has the watch tada so here’s the nubia watch, okay, what is in here or just to make it solid to protect it to protect the watch? Okay, there is, let me peel this off Applause, so i took some link down because before it was too loose now it’s still, it is still a little bit loose, but it is okay for this. Okay, the instruction comes in chinese, but don’t worry. They also have the english version in this video. I will guide you step by step, so the first step, of course, to power it on to power it on. We need to long press the power button until we see it on okay, all right. Okay at first, they asked you to set the language i’m going to set it as english, okay, next user term. Next, please scan to star your oh sorry, there’s a little bit of reflection of the light. It says it’s pairing: please accept pairing requests on wearable phone pair pair with oneplus, 5 pair, so uh on my phone. It says pairing success and on the watch it says please complete settings for your wearable phone on your phone, okay, gender, female next birthday. So let’s go back to watch. Okay, let’s, take a look at the interface, so there is phone on on the first page, there’s phone camera and i don’t know what’s about the heart two finger pinch. I know: okay, detecting how oh sorry detective.
So this is for detecting my heart rate, 81b per minute, all right, okay, cool! So if i do that, i pinched it. It exists right, okay and then there’s the picture. So you can see there is the front camera right. Oh i’m, also recording myself. Okay, stop and there are like four filters for you, four filters for you to select and that’s right after i took it, and i just took a picture. Where do i see? Oh okay? So this is the picture i took before. I think yeah that’s. The picture delay all right, that’s, the video so for the video. What oh, okay there’s the volume for you to adjust it. I think for when you’re watching your own video, you can adjust the water and also you can share your video, full recheck or delete okay and then do the same thing pinch. So you pinch it and then exit this okay, let’s see so on my phone for the app there is account management, device management, device, management, okay, but i don’t see like they have a sync management. They can sync your phone book and are your messages to the watch music management. You can sing the songs uh through your phone and then to the wearable one. I mean to the new video today’s step number. If i walk, it will record your uh steps and then i think you can. I don’t know if you can share it with your friends and like compete with each other, because some other watches do call.
So if you want to call anybody, you can, you know call from here and because it is connected to your phone, i think you can uh accept calls from your watch. You speak to the speaker on your watch when you receive a call from your phone. Okay see messages, we check, we check. Okay, they can use recheck on here, so go map alipay that’s, pretty convenient. They have alipay in here so that i could like show people my curacao and people can scan it for my watch so that’s the first page. The second page is more about fitness, health, outdoor running outdoor working work, walking, yeah and i’m, not gon na what work out, not in a million years music. So this music definitely connected with my phone let’s see if i can play some music here. Okay, let’s see imported one. I imported one in it: okay imported one song. Okay, now i imported one song for my phone and i’m going to play it and see what’s going on. I just click it. So if i hit play okay, there is sound so because i just say i just imported the song for my phone and it automatically shows up in my watch. Oh wow, i i clicked the search phone. Your phone has been found and it’s now raining, stop ringing holy crap wow. That was so convenient. You know. Whenever i try to um find my phone i have. Of course i have to use other phone to call it, but if it’s parrot i don’t have to wow so i’ve talked to my friends, and i asked her to call me because on up – and i noticed one thing on my watch – my recheck does not have The conversation uh function only like the talking function, i can hold to talk, but i cannot hold the type so yeah, Music, Laughter, foreign, bye, okay, pros.
The touch interface is beautiful. I’M, really surprised. I don’t often see such a nice ui from a chinese company. Whatever happens with this watch as a product, its interface sets a high standard. The form factor is great. A screen that wraps a third to halfway around your wrist is fantastic and very usable. Build quality is excellent. The watch is fast and responsive. Okay, now the cons honestly, the watch is a bit big for an average woman. I mean like long small women like me, i don’t think they were being sexist women by 48 of all smartphones and only 30 of watches. I think it was just a business choice based on those numbers, but i also think at 30 percent plus teenagers and men with slimmer bills. I would have made two sizes that’s. Just me, though, and tooling is expensive. Next, i am a cyberpunk gig. I want a wrist computer. I love wearing my phone on my wrist, but i want a full size screen. Take this screen, make it wider, go all the way and give us a real full brown slick, futuristic wrist computer, all the deck to do it. Is there now just not the willingness to take a chance on a new form factor: okay, that’s. My review of the nubia alpha smartwatch i’ll put a link in the description box.
