What We Like About iTouch Air Smartwatch

This smartwatch is easy to set up, connecting with the smartphone is simple. This is perfect if you are looking for a basic smartwatch.

The iTouch Air includes all the popular trackers: step counter, heart rate monitor, blood oxygen levels monitor to track your metrics, and give you a realistic picture of your present state.

The messaging option and alarms only alert by vibration not sound.

It is easy to pair this device with the phone, check text messages and incoming calls without handling the phone.

The larger screen size makes viewing the textless of a strain on the eyes. The band material is similar to those used for runners, so that there is no issue when it gets wet.

What We Don’t Like About iTouch Air Smartwatch

This device is not user friendly nor easy to navigate, program, sync and includes unclear and poorly written pairing instructions. The controls are not intuitive.

There are repeated internet connectivity issues. Apps change without permission. The watch does offer many useful features, but only a few are found to perform correctly at any given time. The running mode tends to be off by at least one mile. The time and date cannot be corrected.

Sometimes it takes most of the day to charge the battery and it does not last for the advertised 30 days. Other times the watch would not turn on in the morning after a charge.

The band is made of poor quality as it easily tears. The watch screen is designed to turn on when turning the wrist inward but there is a second delay before the screen is activated which prevents being able to glance at the screen at a moment’s notice.

The bottom of the box includes a very disturbing warning, “TAKE HEED, Caution cancer and reproductive harm.” The back part of the watch, where the sensors are located, has burned skin.
