Design And Build Quality
My immediate thought when I first saw the Watch Ultra clone was “This is the rugged phone of smartwatches.” HW8 Ultra Max clearly shares some features and design DNA with the Apple Watch Series 8 Clone or even Series 7. It runs the same operating system and works with the same combination of a crown and side button, and once you get over the design difference, it can be admittedly easy to forget that you’re wearing the Ultra. That said, the biggest and most meaningful improvement with the Ultra, in my opinion, is the new Action button on the left side of its case.
Just like athor appel watch Ultra, Ultra Max has a new orange button on the left side of its case. It’s called the “Action” button and it can be customized from settings to quick-start workouts, start a stopwatch, calls, and more.
Apart from that, The Series 8 Clone and Ultra clone can look quite similar when it comes to looks except for slight differences, like the speaker grill instead of the hole and the protrusion on the side of the crown and flat buttons. However, it brings a modern and elegant design that 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 smartwatch clones of Apple Watch Ultra. So the shape is as usual a square with a 2.05-inch screen and flat not 3D curved on the sides like other clones.
Despite being a budget smartwatch, HW8 Ultra Max feels sturdy yet comfortable, looks elegant, and gives a premium vibe which makes it amongst the best apple watch Ultra 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 matt finish, Personally, I like the matte case. The dimensions are perfect with a 49mm 1:1 large size and 14mm thickness of the frame, I can say the case which is the most exact copy of the original and weighs more than 65g.
From underneath there is the sensor responsible for all the health and sports features on the device and as a new gear upgrade, With four screws on the back, it is more competitive. you will also notice the absence of any charging pins, that’s because it’s wireless. And finally, on the sides, there are two lock buttons for the strap.
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 the colors silver, And an additional choice you can buy another from metal or leather.
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 Ultra Max Watch my favorite type by a large 2.05-inch IPS flatter display to better protect it from dings and scratches, and because it is larger than other smartwatches being one of the few smartwatch clones that are the same size as the apple watch Ultra, the images displayed on the screen are clear thanks to the high resolution of 520*580 pixels and a high pixel density of 307 PPI. And with an extremely narrow bezel, the display area is increased by about 25%.
While using the HW8 Ultra 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 DT8 Ultra 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. 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 Ultra 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.
On the whole, it’s a really good-looking watch and doesn’t feel too obtrusive, thanks to its sleek profile. Having IP67 Waterproof 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
When it comes to fitness and everyday health tracking, HW is also strong. The HW8 Ultra Max watch adopts the built-in Hs6621PG chip for faster response speed and faster data processing, and it is powered by 128MB ROM so that the watch can be equipped with more watch faces. For your health, this device has an HRS3300 Low-power dynamic optical heart rate sensor, it is one of the best in this market and is known for giving good results and will help you take better care of your health and encourage you to work out more.
This watch has the latest Bluetooth v5.2 chip and supports calls So, You will not face any problems in contact because it’s the fastest and most stable. 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 Ultra Watch 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.

NFC Access Control allows for keyless and frictionless door entry using a smartwatch device for authentication. So, When reaching home, the watch is your access control, Raise your wrist to open the door quickly. The NFC of this watch only supports IC door cards with a frequency of 13.56MNZ (applicable to 80% of the market), and payment for Alipay and WeChat Pay. does not support credit cards or another payment mode.
How Do You Operate The HW8 Ultra Max
The Software makes for a generally pleasant and rich experience overall, it works well enough for you to navigate around and use the various apps and functions. and one of the most important updates is to change the look of menus, icons, and software in general. And most navigation is done via the touchscreen, which you swipe left, right, up, and down to get to the main parts of the software. You can access a Control Center when swiping from the top you can enable Bluetooth Phones, Wallet Functions & Business cards, AliPay for Chinese users, Sports, And the control short videos from Tiktok.
And there is more on the second page such as Lock Screen, Always-on Display, Do not disturb, Location Sharing, Save Battery Mode, Brightness, NFC, Alarm, and Find the phone. It also gives you a percentage of your battery, and see if your phone is connected to this watch.
By swiping from the left, A split window will appear on the side with the time, QR Code, Weather, and the last open applications.

To change the menu style, you only have to double-click the scrolling wheel.
Health & Fitness Functions
The HW8 Ultra Max is a great companion if you’re looking for a fitness smartwatch is equipped with a somewhat reliable sensor to help you monitor your body and keep track of the sports you are practicing in sports mode which you can access simply by clicking the button on the right side or by selecting the sports modes from the apps menu, the sports available are indoor and outdoor sports, like running, cycling, swimming, sit-up, on foot, mountaineering, and more.

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 Ultra Max
For you to enjoy the many benefits of your HW8 Ultra 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 Ultra Max clone to your phone. After installing the Wearfit Pro app and setup, all you have to do:
- Step 1: The first thing to do is to go to your phone’s settings. Then, turn on your phone’s Bluetooth connection, and add the device. Two options add a device, search, or scan a QR code.

When all this is done, it will communicate directly and without any complications, with automatic setting of time and language, weather, in addition to a phone call feature, and update the smartwatch software if available.
Wearfit Pro App For HW8 Ultra Max
Wearfit Pro helps you set up and use the watch more efficiently. You can synchronize the app with your smartwatch to read and track your step data. It shows you a detailed record of the number of steps you have taken throughout the day, plus the distance covered. 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.
To activate the feature, it must be downloaded from the Wearfit Pro app market. This is a new feature that allows you to share your location and health status in real-time by connecting the smartwatch with the phone, and the sharing is with another person who has the same watch and program, the location is not very accurate, so their may be an update to solve some problems.
This feature can be accessed from the Control Center or in the main menu in the App Store. It is worth noting that other applications can be installed such as blood sugar and breath rate and the new two feature: control short videos from Tiktok and Meteorological.
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 Ultra Max
The most important feature of the HW8 Ultra 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 Ultra 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 Ultra 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 Ultra 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 3 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.
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.
HW8 Ultra Max certainly lives up to its moniker, and will undoubtedly be hard to exclude from our list of the best budget smartwatches. it’s a new clone of the Apple Watch Ultra to make it stand out from the rest of the smartwatches in the market and to break from the usual and might be the ultimate smartwatch. But, The Series 8 Clone and Ultra clone can look quite similar, even though they work very similarly except for the customizable side button and flat screen.
For the time being, there is nothing better than the Ultra Max to give you an experience that is closer to the Apple Watch Ultra in terms of screen, and even the new software was more than great to break out of the familiar atmosphere of the rest of the versions. Even the rest of the features were more than satisfactory, and this includes the overall performance and smooth navigation of the system as well as the battery which was good. Therefore, it is one of the most accurate clone watches that we have seen.
