Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - SMART WATCHES -

The Burg watch phone ac­tu­ally had us con­fused and forced us to think whether this is ex­actly a smart watch or not. While the other smart watches are ex­ten­sions of the smart­phone, the Burg 13 is a phone in it­self. Hid­den be­low the screen is a reg­u­lar SIM card slot ac­com­pa­nied by a me­mory

card slot. Once you in­sert a SIM card, the watch turns into a phone. HOW IT WORKS: Just like a reg­u­lar phone, we could dial and an­swer calls in speaker mode us­ing the Burg 13. Though loud and clear, thes­peaker sounds a bit weird, but the watch can be paired with Blue­tooth head­sets. In­ter­est­ingly, the watch picked up In­ter­net set­tings au­to­mat­i­cally

and we could do some ba­sic brows­ing over it. Like ba­sic phones, it has features such as im­age viewer, file man­ager, task list, or­gan­iser, alarm clock, me­dia player etc. Plus, there is a front fac­ing cam­era which could be used for a bit of spy­ing if needed as we could record both au­dio and video us­ing it. The Burg 13 has a re­sis­tive touch dis­play ac­com­pa­nied by a small pin sty­lus. Sur­pris­ingly, the touch screen works even with your fin­gers. But this ex­pe­ri­ence is spoiled by the small screen

that forced us to take out the sty­lus. HOW GOOD IS IT: This def­i­nitely is a much more user-friendly watch then the I’m Watch. But it has an or­di­nary, bor­ing de­sign, which makes it look like a toy. Also, it doesn’t run on a smart op­er­at­ing sys­tem. Hence, one can­not in­stall any apps on the Burg 13. It can’t re­place a phone, but it sure can be an ad­di­tional de

vice to flaunt in front of your friends.
