kawal singh, 03 Dec 2015can we zoom in the images in this watch....????yes we can, but whats the use really of zooming. Screen and resolution is too small to enjoy pictures on this, but camera is not that bad. You can transfer pictures via mail or shareit quickly and see them on some other device.
Shivakant, 02 Dec 2015People say that we can install app from google app but
Google playstore application are n... moreWell, not all playstore apps would work on it, but the ones I am using absolutely fine are Tablet Talk, Shake, BigFont(change font size), Youtube, Share it, Llama. I installed them, Plus Maps, Gmail preinstalled works great. I am sure when I will be needing some app, most probably it will work fine.
You are right, to use this device as a primary phone you need a proper bluetooth headset, the one that was shipped is pretty much useless.
Charging deck works properly, I did not have much issue. Once set, it is set. I never needed any extra support. Deck is just fine.
People say that we can install app from google app but
Google playstore application are not created for small screen like this and there is no way you can change orientation so to play a game and to capture a image we have to remove the watch
I wrote 10ns of mails to intex and they never replied me any of my mail regarding a manufacturing issue
If you buy this watch you cannot use it as a primary phone of yours plus always carry a bluetooth , the bluetooth provided with it is shit
The watch screen always stays black and in order to see time you have to tap and wait for a second to see the time , some time the tap does not works at all , you will feel redeculus while walking on road and tapping screen .
The strap is not perfect as the pins get losse very easily . This watch is not at all designed for regular use
Worst thing is the charding deck which will never work if you dont use any support and bind the watch around it
Bharati, 21 Sep 2015Using this watch for last 3 days. Here are the feedback :
1. Look is excellent,
2. ... moreAgain the same thing, good enough hardware, bad software. Pedometer is fine, app is crap. Try jogging and app also somewhat works fine. Gives you the number of steps correctly. You can use a better app like runtastic or something and it should work fine.
To change watch faces, there are not many, but you can go to 'Lock Screen' icon.
Bharati, 22 Sep 2015(-)ve 1. Battery life of the BlueTooth headphone is the worst in its class. Use or not, every... moreTotally agree.. Its power back up really bad.. If they were shipping a bluetooth headset along, it should have had atleast 2 hours of playback time if not more.
ITS USELESS WATCH, 08 Oct 2015DON'T BUY INTEX IRIST SMART WATCH. ITS USELESS PIECE OF PLASTIC WATCH. Software provided do ... moreI have also purchased this device. I know what you are talking about and intex people are basically idiots, but now that you own the device, I can suggest you use something like Tablet Talk or Google Voice, GrooveIp with IFTTT or some other workable solution. You can take advantage of the device as it is a fully functional Android. So yes, phone and watch can be synced together for calls and almost everything using the right apps. That's what I am doing and I have no issues as such, but yes, intex people are basically idiots to sell good enough hardware with really bad software.
ritesh, 28 Oct 2015Can we use for read any pdf or word file and etc documents Give me answer You can install many third party softwares from PlayStore for that. It is not a big deal. There is no stock app for pdf, word, etc. but apps like Apache Open Office and many others can get the things done.
As I posted before, my device had to be arrived before 4th, but it reached me on 28th november. I was expecting little slower delivery from ebay, but it was fine.
Now Talking about the device ~
I ordered a black one and it looks fairly good, nothing like a toy, a solid device. Buttons look and work fine, strap is also fine. Little bulky, but not too bulky. It looks fine on your wrist.
Display is good enough. I thought touch will be little laggy, but not at all. It is smooth and snappy. I never had any issue at all with the touch. I have installed some apps like youtube, gmail and some other usual android apps, they are workable enough. I just wanted to get proper notifications of mails and if I want to read full mail, I should be able to and I can. With typing possible, but little difficult, I can reply back too, a better solution is using the voice typing to reply, google now or voice typing via keyboard or I can reply from my phone also. Also, some sliding keyboards work great on it, not all, but some do work.
I watched some videos on youtube, they looked fine and its inbuilt speaker is also okay. I also used Shareit on it to receive some stuff from my mobile and it worked fine. Receive button was getting cut a little bit, but it worked the way it should.
Battery back up of irist watch is really good. I have my device connected to my phone via bluetooth. It has internet connection working via wifi and receiving phone network. With all this turned on, it easily lasts more than 2 days. To fully charge the device, it took me less than 1 hour while using a good charger. I have another charger, it charges everything little slow. With 2 Amp charging power, it does not take more than 1 hour from 3-4 % to 100%.
Charging dock is okay. It slips away easily, but once set, it is not a problem. It stays connected properly.
Maps applications works the way it does on any android device. It is customized for its small display and it can assist you finding directions. Device having its own gps makes sense.
I tried using pedometer app to walk a few steps around my home, but it did not record any data. When I used the app for jogging, it worked fine. Stock app is crap and useless. I feel a proper app will work way better with pedometer. Pedometer works, but maybe its sensitivity needs to be tweaked according to the kind of activity because something that works for walking, maybe gets too sensitive for running or jogging. There are apps like runtastic, accupedo and others that can be used to changed the sentivity and other stuff. I have't used any as such as of now, but I feel hardware is there and it will work fine with good fitness apps. I felt the app was very bad, but it also works fine with jogging for me.
I think camera of the device will be used only when you have nothing else around to take picture. 5mp is good enough to take decent pictures. It takes good pictures in good daylight, but they cannot be seen properly on its small 240*240 screen.
Other features --
- I saw in its features list that it is dust and water resistant, so just like that I washed the watch while washing my hands and it is working. ;p. So, this is also good that you can take it out while it is raining. I am wondering can I wear it inside swimming pool? I won't try that.. I guess.
- Bluetooth headset that came along look good and they sound okay, but its battery does not last longer than 30-40 minutes. Calling works, but what's the use really. It is a copy of QY7 which costs Rs2500 in the market. Lookswise, it is a good copy, but what is the use really. It does not last long enough to be useful. Its sound quality is better than the Rs500 earphones I am using from Philps, but if there is no power, what's the use? I will try once more, charge it fully using the good charger, but I am sure, it will not last longer. Good bluetooth earphones powerback up is around 5hours of music or a week of standby. This thing is no good.
- Voice assistant app is another shitty app preinstalled. Bad that we cannot remove them out of the device. I have made a folder on the screen for junk apps and I keep all useless together under that title. I use google voice search and it does all the work for me. It works smoothly and I really like using it. I hardly have to type anything with it. I tried to find a setting with which I can launch the voice search anytime, even while I am using some other app, but could not find those settings which are there on many android devices.
I want to launch the voice search quickly and for that I found a solution. I use an app called Shake. We can set horizontal or vertical shake for performing an action, such as launching an app, I set it as launch Voice search. We can also set the sensitivity of the shake and all that. I works great for me. So, google now, voice search is the real good assistant to be used with the device. It makes all the work so easy on this device.
- Device works smooth and we can install a lot of apps on it just like any other android device and I like it. Most apps work with it, some have a problem with text getting cut. I use an app called BigFont(Change Font Size) and it makes the text so small that functions that were not working because of getting cut, can work.
- It is not a smartwatch to be precise, but it is basically a watch phone. An android phone fitted into a watch's body. But, it can be used as a smartwatch. It comes stocked with an app called iconnect to connect phone with it and sync, call logs, messages, contacts, but this app is not good enough. It works, but it does not show real time calls on it.
I was using an app called Tablet Talk to get my phone calls on my tablet and messages. I purchased the app for Rs180 and I use it with this watch too. So, when I get the calls, my watch rings real time and I can cut the call or pick the call using the bluetooth headset. Picking up button does not work on the watch, The real time calling on the phone works great and serves the purpose so in a way it is working as a smartwatch as well. They are basically idiots to provide the hardware, but not enough software solution for simple things to work simply. This real time calling function is not a big deal. It works in all bluetooth car stereos so what's the big deal with a fully functional bluetooth android. That app iconnect is not good enough, but being able to be notified real time while someone calling is possible with Tablet Talk. You may need that BigFont app to configure Tablet Talk on your device.
Overall, I am happy with what I got. It's battery is great. It works great. I like it. Once set, it functions properly.
I wont say that the device is bad , but never buy any product from an indian mobile manufacturer as they dont know anything about service at all , all they will say that just submit the device and they will research on it , i am going to file a consumer forum complaint and i would love you people to join me and ask claim from the company firstname.lastname@example.org
I have ordered the irist watch for Rs 7,999 from eBay. It will arrive before 4th November. I will update as soon as I test it. Looking at the features, it seems a good toy, but reading the opinions of other users I feel am I making a mistake? Anyway, I will buy it, why will it not work, I don't see a reason. Let's see.
The Biggest Mistake - I have committed and Suggest you to Avoid this. Never Ever Buy This Watch.
I have been using this for a month so.
When I put the watch on charge, it now takes 8+ hours to charge 100%. The charging base is the worst Design I have come across so far. The support from iNTEX is the WORST - never reverted. iConnect app for syncing watch with phone is the BLACK TRUTH.
eBay is another most difficult character to handle. No ownership, No accountability, Absolutely just a market building made up of brick and mortar - cleaver marketing trapping tricks.
Would you like to eXperiment ? I would never suggest this to the enemy even.
ritesh, 28 Oct 2015Can we use for read any pdf or word file and etc documents Give me answer Neither PDF nor Word file works here in this watch.

ITS USELESS WATCH, 08 Oct 2015DON'T BUY INTEX IRIST SMART WATCH. ITS USELESS PIECE OF PLASTIC WATCH. Software provided do ... moreI completely agree with you as I have the same experience with eBay and iNTex and iConnect. In fact, this was first purchase through eBay and is the last too. Its a total waste and have degraded my trust on Indian Product. A long way to go for Indian Product Company such as iNTEX as long as they do not understand end user dynamics. I have put my review in MouthShut too.
DON'T BUY INTEX IRIST SMART WATCH.
ITS USELESS PIECE OF PLASTIC WATCH.
Software provided do not work at all. The technical service department will keep wasting your time telling you do this and that most of the time.Iconnect is total failure, which is the main purpose of this watch. Nobody will like to use this has primary phone. It needs to sync with our main phone and otherwise it is useless rubber piece. I called so many times to the technical service and he keeps wasting our time, asking you to do this and that. Think this is a total failure device. If you see online also so many complaints about this watch. Technical service person wanted me to visit the local service center and i had a pathetic experience. The shop was like a small tea shop and the owner talking to customers like as they are some goats or other animals. Was giving all vague answers to the customers who were visiting that place. After i waited patiently for half an hour, he cooly told he can't do anything with this watch and go to another service center for which he did not bother to give proper address also.Now i call the service technician fellow and he cooly says to go to another service center. I call the ebay to return the product and they refuse saying you have deal with company inspite of the so called "ebay guarantee" . Technical service person refuses to accept the software failure issues and has no answer for refunding my charges. Shall share my experience will all social medias, so that no further customers fall for this watch since they are using huge advertising tactics to sell this defective watch.
