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.
Anonymous, 05 Oct 2015BTW, the whole process will take atleast 20 to 30days. I got a response from eBay stating, they will not process refund and have closed the claim request. They asked me to read their policy document. Also, suggested me to get in touch with the Seller directly.
I bought Irist, The product is good but needs a lots of Improvement in software.
Bluetooth headset is not user friendly, if you have to take a call you can not take the call privately without using the earphone, and to wear a earphone is nightmare.
Call log is worst and irritating, 5 to 6 attempts open the call log.
Assistant comes with a premium payment of Rs.500, but you can not pay on this device.
You can not increase or decrease the volume of music.
No shortcut for silent or vibration mode.
I purchased a separate Bluetooth for this device.
Bluetooth 1.0 does not connect to it.
I have a doubt, how it will effect my wrist bone if wearing it all the time? Radiation from network and Bluetooth.
I had filed claim under eBay Guarantee claim for not being satisfied 100%. There was a call back from eBay after 8 days. They begin with stating, "eBay is a market place and is not responsible for the Product quality. The product quality / defects / bad design shall be addressed by the seller and I should get in touch with the Seller." Wonderful market practice policy from eBay. This was my first purchase from eBay and this is going to be my LAST too.
Any way, iRist is still with me and here are the more experience from usage :
1/ Software update does nothing in iRist. It is not known, what have they updated.
2/ iConnect : This is utter failure. All comments can be seen with ZERO satisfaction in the App itself in Play Store with ZERO Response from iNTEX. Infact, there is a BIG DISCONNECT between ICONNECT and INTEX.
3/ When the battery is completely OUT and we recharge the watch, we need to set the DATE and TIME again.
4/ iWalk is a complete failure. Every time I touch the icon to launch the App, it says "App not installed". When I check the App section, it says "App Running". Who is a fool here ?
Day 5 Experience :
How to receive a call ? Tap on GREEN icon to Answer the call. It does not work with single tap, we need to keep the finger tip on the Green icon pressed to answer the call. They say, the touch screen is ultra sensitive but it does not seem so.
1. Battery life of the BlueTooth headphone is the worst in its class. Use or not, every 20 minutes, it would drain out and a beautiful voice would say the same to you very politely.
Day 4 Experience and Answer to Query :
With BlueTooth, the voice clarity is good. Without BlueTooth, the voice can be heard only by enabling the Loud Speaker(by default ON) and same is audible to all around us.
1. I did a software update. Now, iWalk is not working any more. Screen rotation is not happening too.
2. Charger Base is bad. It has a magnet to hold the watch base, but with minor vibration such as incoming call or SMS the base moves away from charging pin and we need to readjust the same to continue charging.
3. To see the Call Log, its a nightmare. Go to phone dialer and slide from left to right. After minimum of 5 to 6 attemt only, it shows the call log menu.
4. Double tap on screen does not activate the watch at one go.
5. First screen is the WATCH to see the time. Once we slide right to see Android screen, there is no way to come back to WATCH any more. We need to press top button to blank out display and then again press the same button to see the watch.
What is the level of functionality of speaking into/listening from the Intex Irist watch directly (without the Bluetooth headset)?
Does it seem unwieldy? Can the sound from the speaker be overheard by people around you?
Your replies would be much appreciated.
Using this watch for last 3 days. Here are the feedback :
1. Look is excellent,
2. Size is right fit,
3. Battery is very good,
4. Full Android OS
1. Padometer is very bad, I walked for 6 KM but it shows 51 steps,
2. Watch is getting heated up very fast, when WiFi hotspot is enabled.

4. Can not wear on Right Hand as it is designed for left hand only.
5. Screen does not rotate.
6. Not sure how to change WATCH FACE.
