Cubot has unveiled the C3, its latest smartwatch. Not only does the C3 have a rugged design, but it has a unique dual crown system. The Cubot C3 has a 1.3-inch display and is 5 ATM water-resistant, too.

Cubot may be known for its smartphones, but it also now sells a couple of smartwatches. The latest is the C3, which joins the appropriately called Cubot smartwatch. While the latter resembles many modern smartwatches, the C3 has more of a robust design with an angular body and what appears to be a brushed metal finish.

The Cubot C3 has a 46 mm watch face and is 14.8 mm thick. The diameter of the watch face conforms to a 1.3-inch diagonal display, which also includes a touchscreen. The display resolves at 240 x 240 pixels and is an LCD panel, according to Cubot. While one can navigate the C3 using its touchscreen, it also has two crowns, for some reason.

The smartwatch relies on a GR5515 SoC, 1 MB of flash storage and 256 KB of RAM. It also supports up to Bluetooth 5.1, but there is no GPS or Wi-Fi connectivity. Hence, the Cubot C3 needs connecting to an Android or iOS device for most of its 'smart' functionality. There is an accelerometer, ten sports modes and 5 ATM water resistance, though. Cubot claims that the smartwatch has a heart rate and blood oxygen monitors, but these could be fake sensors, as we have covered previously.

Cubot states that the C3 should last up to 30 days between charges on its 260 mAh battery. However, the company drops this estimate to 12 days of 'normal use'. Cubot is yet to begin selling the C3, but it will eventually retail for about US$50. Chinese Smartwatches reports that the Cubot C3 will be available on AliExpress, Banggood and Gearbest, too.
