Microwear is back again with a new generation of smartwatches Microwear H7, the Microwear still keeping the same design which is rugged and rectangular as well, the Microwear H7 has 1.54 inch, 320 x 320 resolution with the full touchable screen protected with a glass mirror, having an alloy body with a TPU strap. The smartwatch also has a 5MP camera as well as an IP68 waterproof that is suitable for swimming but do not use it in hot water shower.
The Microwear H7 is included inside a Black box with Shiny style. The watch can be taken out from the package in which you will find a 4 pin USB charger cable and a multilingual document. The manual includes few pages to explain how the various menus work and above all, how to use the Microwear H7. Simple but quite good document. In some languages, translations look strange, but in general, we believe the manual includes good information.
Design & Appearance
The Microwear H7 takes advantage of 2 side keys and the touchscreen. Compared to other models of the same price range, we are certainly at a higher level. The strap is comfortable, soft and silky, it does not create problems with long sleeves thanks to the case limited thickness. It has a quick release system for replacement with other models or for more thorough cleaning. The Microwear H7 Comes as 124 Grams. Its total measures are 53x40x14MM. Also, it has at least 2 physical buttons that each one fulfills a specific function.
The Microwear H7 is made of metal with good finishes and only features a button on the right side that allows you to activate the clock or return from any menu to the hour display. On the left side, we can find a microphone and behind the heart rate sensor and the magnetic connector to charge the watch.
One of the main moments of appearance is a very thin profile compared to competitors (14 mm). The Microwear H7 housing is a combination of metal (316L) and high-quality plastic, and the two-tone strap is made of silicone and has three colors: black and red, black-blue, black-gray (My test unit colors is dark-green).
The Microwear H7 is equipped with a 1.54-inch AMOLED screen, with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. The screen size is adequate and will offer a display of high definition images, intense colors and delicate effects; At the same time, it will give us a great experience during the outdoor exercise. It also has a glass crystal reinforced with minerals, this has a surface hardness of Mohs 7 or higher, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and better transmission of light.
The processor was an MTK6537 with a 1.2GHz clock and a memory of 1GB. 8GB of ROM is available for storing images and files, which is amazingly space for such a small device. A memory extension via microSD card is sought in vain. The Smartwatch is coupled via Bluetooth 4.0 with the mobile phone and provides a stable connection. As a special feature, the Microwear has a slot for a SIM card to use the smartwatch as a stand-alone phone with Internet access. There is also a GPS module, a heart rate monitor and a pedometer which worked very precisely in the test. The heart rate monitor works, just like its predecessor, astonishingly accurate and reliable.

After installing the FUNDO application on your smartphone, you can use the display of notifications on the watch screen. In practice, it works differently. There were days when I received all, and there were days when the program was completely silent. There is definitely room for improvement here. The notification is signaled by a clear vibration – there is no way to not notice it. The application is translated tragically, and my favorite mistake is the name of the pairing – here known as “gluing”. There are a lot of such flowers. For this part of Microwear H7 receives a small minus.
Advanced WiFi antenna with Nano SIM card support, which can be used independently with 4G network support. It effectively improves network connectivity, speed, and signal reception capabilities, so the connection is more fluid.
