Design And Build Quality

Although the HW8 Pro Max doesn’t offer much of a change and looks relatively similar to the rest of the Apple Watch 7 clones, there is still a lot to be said about this smartwatch. Internally it’s quite similar too with very few upgrades, if you’ve used the HW7 Max even in the simplest ways, you’ll know what this watch looks like and it’s identical in every way possible yet offers a great deal of the design. While the HW8 Ultra is clearly distinguishable from its siblings, the Watch Series 8 adopts a design identical to its predecessors.

HW8 Pro Max Review

So, The design and 2.0-inch display are exactly the same as on the Watch 7 previous – the same curved chassis and thin screen edge curve precisely into the case, and the Crown button works for page-turning, zooming in/out, turning on-off, and back and is positioned above the right edge with a side button below it – Between them, there is a microphone – while a speaker is located on the left side to make calls. Although it would be neat if you got an extra action button like on Ultra. But this is the typical design of an Apple Series 8 clone, if you’re looking for something that stands out on your wrist, then like I said earlier, the HW8 Ultra is what you’re looking for.

After wearing the HW8 Pro Max on my wrist for a while, I can say with confidence that this segment is headed in the right direction. This smartwatch is very comfortable to wear and lightweight enough not to cause too many distractions, which makes you want to wear it as an accessory not to mention its functionalities, the new Apple-inspired design is fantastic it’s one of the best new smartwatches clones of Apple Watch Series 8.

On the underside of the case, there is an optical heart rate sensor, along with several sensors, you will also notice the absence of any charging pins, that’s because it’s wireless.

The strap is one of the important things to complete the overall look of the watch, that’s why it is made of silicone, it’s lightweight and comfortable on your wrist for long-lasting use. And because it’s removable you can use any 42/45mm belt and is available in colors Black, Silver, blue, and pink, And an additional choice you can buy another from metal or leather.

HW8 Pro Max Review

Despite being a budget smartwatch, HW8 Pro Max feels sturdy yet comfortable, looks elegant, and gives a premium vibe which makes it amongst the best apple watch series clones on the market. So, the build quality is high and can be seen through the body, which is slim and light and made of high-quality Stainless Steel with a glossy finish, Personally, I like the matte case. The dimensions are perfect with a 45mm large size and 11mm thickness of the frame, and lightweight does not exceed 55g, which makes it comfortable on the wrist. As for the colors, they meet your needs with a variety the same as the straps that I will mention shortly.

Display Screen

Now, let’s move on to why I fell in love with this smartwatch. The most prominent development of the latest cloned smartwatches is the display, This is what makes the screen in HW8 Pro Max my favorite type a 2.0-inch IPS display its larger and slimmer bezels, enabling you to see more content on the tiny display than ever before, it’s a lovely punchy display with vibrant colors and because it is larger than other smartwatches being one of the few smartwatch clones that are the same size as the apple watch series 8, the images displayed on the screen are clear thanks to the high resolution of 420*480 pixels and a high pixel density of 307 PPI. And with an extremely narrow bezel, the display area is increased. The Series 7 expanded the Series 6’s screen by an additional 25%, but the Series 8 didn’t add much to the Series 7, but it’s still good given the price.

HW8 Pro Max Review

While using the Pro Max smartwatch, will provide you with the best experience you can possibly get on budget devices, special thanks to the color accuracy and sharpness, the image is clear and rich, and even under direct sunlight, I found it better than the DT7 Max in brightness. you’ll be able to use your smartwatch with ease whether you want to read notifications or check your health stats, you won’t need to get your phone out of your pocket. Definitely, it’s the best screen in a budget smartwatch in terms of size and resolution. The screen also provides an always-on display feature which we usually only find in OLED screens, but this time they made it available here despite the technological obstacle.

  • HW8 Pro Max Review

And as I always say, the reason makes this type of screen is my favorite is that large and takes over most of the interface, and with narrow sides, and this is only found in smartwatches with higher costs, It’s the closest to an Apple Watch Series 8. I personally prefer this screen over others and would love to see it used more.

Multiple Watch Faces

HW Series has made a concerted effort to tailor the plethora of watch faces included on the HW8 Pro Max that’s why brings you 7 different pre-installed watch faces to choose from, you can switch between them easily in many ways, by rotating the button or via the Wearfit Pro app for more watch faces with over 200 online watch faces are available for download and some watch face dials are free, with many of paid-for choices available to supplement the free ones. and it’s included a variety of colors, retro, analog, 3D, and digital faces, or you can even use your own photos as a watch face background or any wallpaper and have the possibility of customization. More importantly, it includes the latest and exclusive watch faces for Apple Watch Series 8 and Ultra. So yes, you will not miss the fun.

Like the previous smartwatches for Series 7, the HW8 Pro Max Series 8 has an IP67 Waterproof certification, which it means can only handle sweat and splashes of water, although the watch is not approved for swimming but is good for wearing for activities, so, I do not recommend swimming or exposing it to hot water or saltwater to avoid any harm Long or short term and with the presence of a speaker and a microphone, avoiding it will be good, however, if it’s exposed to water in any way, I prefer to dry the watch after immersing it in water and before operating it so that it stays with you for as long as possible.

Under The Hood

While everything looks the same to the naked eye, the HW8 Pro Max Series 8 has some significant changes under the hood. it comes with a built-in HS6621PG chip it’s an updated version of the processing unit at the Series 7 for faster response speed and faster data processing and paired with 128MB of storage for storing contacts, watch faces, notifications, and more.

And this version is compatible with Android 5.0 and later or iOS 10.0 and above so the connection is through the Wearfit Pro app. However, it does not have its own GPS sensor, which means that you will always have to use it with a smartphone to get your location.

AI Voice Assistant

Al voice assistant algorithm in HW8 Pro Max allows you to give voice commands in order to perform some specific task or to ask your queries. Moreover, the smartwatch comes with an integrated speaker which helps you interact with your AI assistant in two-way voice communication, which is convenient and quick.

HW Series has always been far ahead of wearable software from the competition, and while this software isn’t an overhaul of that experience, it does make it better in some very key ways. All of these things work beautifully on the HW8 Pro Max. So, The responsiveness is not like on the Apple Watch, but it works well enough for you to navigate around and use the various apps and functions very quickly.

Although it has a sensor that is more accurate than other sensors, this does not mean that the measurements provided by this smartwatch are completely accurate, as most of them are largely unreliable because it’s not a medical instrument, but it makes you very aware of your health and physical performance. unfortunately, this is often the case with watches in this price range.

How To Pair The HW8 Pro Max

For you to enjoy the many benefits of your HW8 Pro Max, you would have to connect it to a support app. The recommended app is the Wearfit Pro app which has loads of beneficial features to keep you fit and healthy, and it’s compatible with Android and iOS, so you would need to download it on your mobile phone. It is available on Google Play and App Store for both Android and iOS users.

For pairing, it’s easy to connect the HW8 Pro Max Series 8 clone to your phone. After installing the Wearfit Pro app and setup, all you have to do:

Also set exercise goals and encourage yourself to complete your exercise amount each day through a simple and easy-to-understand operating interface with sections like steps, distance, notifications, alarm, and more.

Main Features of the App

The app I found perfect through the features and settings equipped which include watch faces, application store, wallet, business card, notifications, health reminders, NFC, and more settings like adding favorite contact lists but only 8.

Location Sharing

To activate the feature, it must be downloaded from the Wearfit Pro app market.

HW8 Pro Max Review

Control Short Videos

Your smartwatch can be transformed into a multifunctional smart remote control for multiple operating modes with simple operations for watching video, live broadcasting, one-click control, pause/play, up, down, and like. I don’t know if it is an advantage for some, but it is there.

Bluetooth Calling Function On HW8 Pro Max

The most important feature of the HW8 Pro Max Smartwatch is that it’s equipped with an integrated microphone and a speaker, with the former serving up surprisingly clear sound that can be heard over general din (such as road noise), making it usable, As for the microphone, it’s mainly used for on-wrist calls or, if you’re paired to a smartphone. So it not only displays an incoming call but can also receive and dial calls made via Bluetooth directly from the watch with good sound from the speakers and a mic, and of course, this is done with your smartphone, So you don’t have to take out the phone of your pocket every time you want to make or answer a simple call.

This smartwatch lets you save important and frequently-called contacts so that you don’t have to dig through an extensive contact list to make a call, especially when you’re pressed for time. also features a dial pad that enables you to make calls quickly and conveniently.

To enable Bluetooth Calling Function on this smartwatch, you need to first connect it to the compatible app. Once connected, you need to manually go to the phone’s Bluetooth settings and pair this smartwatch (Bluetooth Name: Watch-Call). Upon pairing, you will get a notification: Connected for calls and audio.


Notifications are clearly visible and easily readable. And you will not miss out on important messages or notifications with the HW8 Pro Max smartwatch on your wrist. It syncs up with your smartphone to display incoming calls, messages, social media notifications (Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter), and other applications, enabling you to stay connected even when you’re on the move.

HW8 Pro Max Battery Life & Charging Time

Finally, The battery in smartwatches is no less important than the rest of the functions, And this is what it offers HW8 Pro Max with a capacity of 200mAh which is considered one of the largest in this range, Battery life is excellent, at least by budget smartwatches standards. for up to 5 days in typical use to 4 days in heavy usage. it all depends on how many features you use, and it must be charged with a wireless charger, this is a great feature, All you have to do, is make sure that you place the watch correctly on the charger and it takes about two hours for full charging.

HW8 Pro Max Review

As an added advantage, the animation while charging the watch was very cool and vibrant and it would be switching between horizontal and vertical screens. So, After turning on the “bedside clock mode”, just put it on its side and connect the power supply, the watch will automatically enter the bedside clock mode, the user can use it as a bedside lamp, in “bedside clock mode” The screen will switch to a horizontal screen.

Power Saving Mode

And to get a longer battery life, you can activate the power saving mode from the control center, and this feature allows you to make the watch face black as always on the screen and only displays the time and records the steps, and it can be canceled by pressing and holding the rotary button.

Final Verdict

It’s really hard to get too excited about the new clones of Watch 8, especially with the Watch Ultra‘s display showing just how much can be achieved from the device. There’s nothing surprising or shocking about the HW8 Pro Max doesn’t offer huge changes compared to the HW7 Max. It does all of the Apple Watch clone things you expect in 2022, with some added niceties to make it better than ever to give you an experience that is closer to the Apple Watch. The large display is a joy to look at and interact with, and it’s bound to be easy to wear, have plenty of health features, and offer the best software you can find on any smartwatch, even the rest of the features were more than satisfactory.
