ZTE has launched the Watch Live in its native China. This new wearable is of the Apple Watch-clone variety, although it sells for much less than its clear inspiration. Its maker claims that it packs 24-hour heart-rate tracking, blood-oxygen sensing, sleep-tracking and up to 21 hours of battery life in its square casing.

ZTE is an OEM responsible for the ground-breaking under-display camera phone the Axon 20 5G, launched earlier this year. On the slightly more expected end of the scale, it has also debuted a square-faced smartwatch with advanced fitness-tracking features. It has a 1.3-inch, 240x240 TFT display, although a lot seems to go on behind this relatively restrained screen.

This Watch Live offers 12 different sports modes, as well as sleep- and stress-tracking features. It is also rated for continuous heart-rate tracking as well as SpO2 measurements. ZTE does not divulge its battery capacity, yet claims that it can last from between 14 to 21 days on a single charge.

This new ZTE Watch Live also has an IP68 certification despite its budget price. It is now listed on this OEM's Chinese-market web-store at 249 yuan (~US$38).

For this, the buyer gets the device finished in black with a black silicone band. Its marketing material also shows that the strap could also come in blue, orange or gray, although these options appear not to be available to order yet.
