Smartphone maker Alcatel OneTouch has announced a series of products at the ongoing CES 2015. The company is stepping into the field of wearables with its own smartwatch dubbed as the ‘Watch’. OneTouch Watch is a line of premium smartwatches with “elegant design at a very accessible price” and look like traditional watches.

It’s called a wearable, so we wanted to make something that would be a pleasure to wear,” said Dan Dery, Chief Marketing Officer of Alcatel OneTouch. “The watch face and the band are slim, like a regular watch, but it has the multi-functionality of a smartwatch.”

Alcatel’s OneTouch Watch boasts of almost all features of typical mainstream smartwatches, packed with several sensors to monitor the wearer’s activities such as heart-rate monitor, gyroscope, altimeter, accelerometer and e-compass. Users can track their steps taken, distance covered, calories burned and also their sleep cycle. The smartwatch can connect with a smartphone to get call and social media notifications. It vibrates to warn a user when he goes too far from the phone and acts as a remote control for taking photos, listening to music or ring the phone to locate it.

Let’s have a look at the specs of the OneTouch Watch:


The Watch has a classic round design with a traditional look. The body is made of metal and its strap has a flat clasp. The watch-face is 10.5mm thick, Moto 360 is slightly thicker at 11.5mm and LG G Watch R slightly smaller at 9.7mm.

The Watch comes in different styles and colors including sporty dark red/volcano black, elegant metal-white, feminine all-white and classic chrome/dark gray. It is IP67 certified for dust and water resistance and connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0.

The Watch has a sleep/wake button, an accelerometer that turns on when a user wants to check the time or notification. It has a 210mAh battery that the company claims will last for up to 5 days and get charged within the hour. The USB charger is embedded inside the wrist band and the Watch can be easily plugged to a computer for charging. No separate cable is needed.


The Watch display is 1.22-inches in diameter. The dimension appears to be small but because it is round, except for a small chin, the space available is good enough to have a simple easy-to-read watch face. The small cut off segment at the base has a touch-sensitive panel to get app list or exit an app.


The OneTouch Watch has an ST429 chipset and Alcatel’s own operating system, not the usual Android Wear. The OS takes care of all the Watch features such as basics, heart-rate and health monitoring and notifications.


The Alcatel OneTouch Watch is compatible both with smartphnes running Android 4.3 or above and iOS 7 or above. It works with several Alcatel smartphones including Hero 2, Idol X+, Idol 2 Mini, Idol 2, Pop D series, Pop S series and Pop M series.

Overall, the design as well as the price of the Alcatel OneTouch Watch is attractive. It is said to cost just $149, which makes it a great buy for the price. The Watch will be available somewhere in March this year directly from Alcatel.
