With a battery life of 25 hours, it actually lasts more than the standard Android smartwatches or the Apple Watch. In “Watch Mode”, it can actually last a full week. Nice. Not sure if they will be available in Singapore but they are really good looking. The cheapest starts from USD900 and goes up to USD1,500 for the titanium version.
