From underneath there is the sensor responsible for all the health and sports features on the device, you will also notice the absence of any charging pins, that’s because it’s wireless.

Although it’s a budget smartwatch, the build quality is high and can be seen through the body, which is slim and light and made of high-quality Stainless Steel and a glossy finish. The dimensions are perfect with 44mm large size and 11mm thickness of the frame, and lightweight does not exceed 50g, 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.

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, Blue, Pink, Silver, And an additional choice you can buy another from metal or leather.

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 IW8 my favorite type by a large 1.99-inch IPS display, which makes the largest among all the smartwatches cloned from the Apple Watch Series 7 reviewed and on market. And with an extremely narrow bezel, the display area is increased by about 25%.

While using the IW8 smartwatch, it will provide you 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, you’ll be able to use your smartwatch with ease whether you want to read notification or check your health stats, you won’t need to get your phone out of your pocket.

If you think we’re done, you’re wrong because the screen is perfect and that’s what makes it a pivotal selling point. The resolution is 454*454Pixels with a high refresh rate and this makes it more attractive in the hand. Definitely, it’s the best screen in a budget smartwatch in terms of size and resolution, It won’t be much different if you wear it under the sun. As a garnish on the plate, as soon as you raise your wrist, the watch wakes up, and there is the Always On Display as well which we usually only find OLED screens, but this time they made it available here despite the technology obstacle, now you check the time without having to turn your screen on, it will always be there.

IW8 Smartwatch Review

And as I always say, the reason makes this type of screen 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 7. I personally prefer this screen over others and would love to see it used more.

Multiple Watch Faces

Without watch faces, the fun wouldn’t be complete, that’s why IW8 Apple Watch 7 Copy brings you 8 different pre-installed watch faces static dials, and dynamics, you can switch between them easily in many ways, by rotating the button or via the RDFit app for more watch faces with over 500 online watch faces are available for download and some watch face dials are free, 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.
