As we mentioned, the clock does not have a screen. However, you can connect with your mobile through an exclusive application . Among its smart functions we have the vibration for alarms and notifications, as well as the possibility of taking selfies by shaking the wrist.
But not only that, it can also be used for sports monitoring . It offers step counting, calorie burn tracking and sleep study, among others. Furthermore, the Lenovo Watch 9 can also be used in swimming. Of course, these functions will be limited, since we are not talking about a complex smartwatch.
The Lenovo Watch 9 is compatible with both Android and iOS . Its battery life is no less than 12 months on a single charge .
The watch will be available in black and white , priced at 129 yuan. If we do the conversion, this translates to about 17 euros . The Watch 9 will hit the Chinese market on March 23, but at the moment it has not been announced that it will reach other markets.
