The HX68 is a new smartwatch from IWO, and is one that can make calls thanks to its built-in speaker. Its 1.72-inch display is rather large too, but it remains lightweight at 34 g. The IWO HX68 retails for US$26.99.

Undoubtedly, IWO gained inspiration from the Apple Watch when designing the HX68. From its crown's placement to the display style and the way that its watchstrap connects, the HX68 is an unashamed Apple Watch clone. Nonetheless, it could still be a good option if you are looking for a cheap smartwatch with which to pair a smartphone.

The HX68 is compatible with Android and iOS via the WearFit Pro app and is available in three colours. IWO has equipped the device with a 1.72-inch IPS display that resolves at 320 x 320 pixels. The display can be controlled either via its touchscreen or the crown that sits at the top right corner of the watch body. IWO has even included a red accent on the crown in another nod to Apple.

Apparently, the HX68 is IP67 water and dust resistant and has a 200 mAh battery that should last up to 7 days between charges. The smartwatch lacks GPS or LTE modules, but its built-in microphone and speaker allow you to make and receive calls. IWO states that it has included a heart rate sensor too, although we would be sceptical as to if it is a real one.

The 44 mm and 34 g smartwatch is available to order on AliExpress for US$26.99. The retailer offers free shipping to numerous countries via its AliExpress Standard Shipping method and provides a 75-day money-back guarantee.
