Everyone interested in Apple Watches knows that Apple has released the latest series of smartwatches from the days of the Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch Ultra, and Apple Watch SE, so it is obvious that Chinese companies will produce clones of them to offer it at cheap prices, We already have one of these versions in our hands from Series 8 and I’m very excited about the Ultra version in the future.
The Apple Watch Series 8 may look relatively similar to the Apple Watch Series 7, however, in this clone the screen size has been improved and some other functions added, and out of the ordinary, it has been given a luxurious GUCCI style. Without further ado, this smartwatch is known as the S8 from IWO Series.
What makes this new smartwatch better than other competitors is a new improvement that includes hardware, software, and design, and the main selling point is the 2.0-inch Ultra Wide Screen which makes it a competitor to HW7 Max, with 420*480 resolution to make it the best in the market so far, and with built-in 18 watch faces, Health & Fitness Functions, with the possibility to Making Calls, also a Multifunction NFC and Voice Assistant, even Location Sharing and the first feature of its kind are to control short videos from Tiktok, and there are many more. In short, you will get the latest technology that you will not find in any other smartwatch, with stylish design at a price low-cost is no more than $40. So let’s start the review.

Design And Build Quality
The S8 GUCCI Watch is the only smartwatch that beats the HW7 Max, so it’s very similar to it when it comes to looks except for slight differences, And as I explained before, there is no difference between Series 7 and Series 8 only in the finishing touch, 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 Series 8. So the shape is as usual a square with a 2.0-inch screen and 3D curved on the sides, with two multifunction buttons, the crown button works for page-turning, zooming in/out, turning on-off, and back. To make calls, just below the button, you’ll find the microphone, addition of holes in the left part, which is the built-in speaker.
Despite being a budget smartwatch, IWO S8 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.
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.
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, and GUCCI style in the box, 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 S8 GUCCI Watch my favorite type by a large 2.0-inch IPS display, 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 by about 25%.
While using the S8 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, 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.
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 8. 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 IWO S8 GUCCI Watch Copy brings you 7 different pre-installed watch faces static dials, 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, while some need to be paid. 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.
S8 Smartwatch has 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
Moving to performance, S8 Apple Watch Series 8 clone packs capable hardware underneath the screen, it comes with a built-in HS6621 chip for faster response speed and faster data processing and a 128Mb of storage for storing contacts, watch faces, notifications, and more. The sensor on this device is the Heart Rate and G-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 GUCCI 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.

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 IWO S8
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. and one of the most important updates is to change the look of menus, icons, and software in general. You can access a Control Center when swiping from the top that you can enable Bluetooth Phone, Location Sharing, Wallet Function & Business cards, AliPay for Chinese users, Sports, And the first feature of its kind is to control short videos from Tiktok.
And there is more on the second page such as Lock Screen, Always-on Display, Do not disturb, Save Battery Mode, Brightness, NFC, Alarm, and Find the phone. Also, gives you a percentage of your battery, and see if your phone is connected to this watch.

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 IWO S8
For you to enjoy the many benefits of your IWO S8 GUCCI WATCH, 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 IWO S8 Apple Watch Series 8 clone to your phone. After installing the Wearfit Pro app and setup, all you have to do:

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 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.

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 there 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 operation for watching the 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 IWO S8
The most important feature of the S8 Smartwatch is that it is equipped with a microphone and a speaker, 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 S8 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.
IWO S8 Battery Life & Charging Time
The battery in smartwatches is no less important than the rest of the functions, however, S8 doesn’t have quite as long battery life as the previous versions but it does offer a capacity of 200mAh, and battery life for up to 7 days in typical use to 5 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 3 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. As long as there is a slight vibration around her, the screen will automatically light up for 6 seconds.
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.
The IWO S8 is a new clone of the Apple Watch Series 8 and to make it stand out from the rest of the smartwatches in the market and to break from the usual, it was given the luxurious GUCCI Watch style, which is evident in the elegant watch box and the strap that is compatible with the GUCCI brand by adding the watch faces that bear the same style with this does not detract from the other functions.
For the time being, there is nothing better than the IWO S8 to give you an experience that is closer to the Apple Watch 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.
