      Answer

      The watch does not have a speaker, but you can answer calls with it. It will answer the call on your phone or bluetooth headset if you have one connected!

        If you have wifi in your home, yes. Anywhere there is a wifi signal, you will get notifications. Remote connection works very well also. K

        Is it waterproof so I can wear it swimming?   (9 Answers)

        My wife enjoys swimming laps, but she is also semi-addicted to her smartphone. Will this watch be waterproof enough to allow her to wear it while swimming laps in the pool without damaging the watch? Will it stay connected to her cell phone if she is 40 feet from the phone?

          Answer

          The product says it is IP68 Rated. Look up IP68. The 6 means dustproof and the 8 means Immersion beyond 1m. So it appears they built it to be waterproof even though they do not specifically say its waterproof. http://www.dsmt.com/resources/ip-rating-chart/

              Answer

              There is a watch face that supports social media. It allows you to view news feeds on your social media pages but is limited to what you can do. However with the rapidly growing app base I would expect there to be social media apps in the near future.

                Answer

                No. This watch does not have its own SIM card, and as such does not require an additional phone line or fee.

                Can you take phone calls?   (10 Answers)

                I've tried looking everywhere and I can't find this answer. Does the phone have speaker phone so if you're in the car driving and you get a call can you answer it from your wrist?

                  In this model, you can only take phone calls if you have a separate bluetooth earpiece connected.
