The wearable market is increasingly growing, and most Chinese companies are currently manufacturing smartwatches at affordable prices. Apart from other Chinese brands, LEMFO has launched LEMFO smartwatch LEM8. Released by renowned Chinese watchmaker LEMFO, this watch is not only elegant but also has a variety of functions. Just like its predecessor, it comes with an inbuilt GPS, HRM and a 2MP camera.
The LEMFO smartwatch comes in a black cardboard box that has a big LEMFO logo on the front side. Created in 2014 by Shenzhen Wayforward Electronic Company, its package includes a charging dock, smartwatch, a small screwdriver, USB cable for charging and a user manual.
Although it has a beautiful design, it looks different in real life and on official images. But all in all, you will still like the design which is a mixture of high tech and classic. Weighing 80 grams and having a thickness of less than 1cm, its device case is made of titanium. More so, its straps are of silicon which makes it suitable as a casual or fitness wear. Since the straps can be changed, you can also wear it officially. With rounded and smooth edges, its finishing does not disappoint.
The key feature of any smartwatch is always the screen. Having 1.39 inch AMOLED panel of 400 by 400 pixels, this watch has an awesome screen. The LEM8 not only saves energy but also provides a very good contrast. Its saturated colours and contrast ratio will help you analyse the use of the screen. You can also adjust its brightness using the quick card. With very high brightness, its screen is not only well read indoors but outdoors as well.
