Martian G2G Smart Watch Review – The easiest way to stay connected!

June 16, 2014

Martian Watches very kindly sent me their G2G smart watch to review, they have quite a few ranges of smart watches including the notifier, passport and victory editions! Of course I chose the hot pink one, but hey I like pink! They also have a range of colors to choose from, perfect for both men and women.

I had heard about a smart watch before, but wasn’t sure who sold them or where to buy them, I just knew I wanted one, I was pretty amazed after I read about all of the features included, technology is becoming amazing!

Below are just some of the watches offered, but you can see what they look like and not just in hot pink!

The watch I received is the G2G Hot Pink Smart Watch, I don’t think I’ve had it off my wrist since I received it (apart from when I’m in the shower).  There are so many built in features and it is so easy to use once you learn how everything works, I never knew a watch could be addictive!

The Features

There are so many built in features of this watch it’s amazing.  The smart watch connects via Bluetooth to your phone, it’s simple all you need to do is download an app and you can pick and choose the notifications you would like to receive from your phone to your watch.  Everything is displayed via the screen on the face of the watch.

Notifications

The watch has a vibration feature which will alert you when you get a text message, push notification (such as Facebook message, email, tweet or weather alert etc).  You can also set different vibrations and strengths for different alerts so you will know what is coming through without even having to look at your watch or your phone!

You can scroll through the last 5 to 10 notifications, set a silent alarm clock or reminder and even answer phone calls!

Now another good feature is the app that you install on your phone.  If you do not want to receive notifications from a particular app, you can simply turn that app notification feature off via the martian app.

Voice Features

You can place calls, receive calls, send text message and even trigger your cameras shutter remotely.

When your driving and you really need to make that quick phonecall, the voice feature comes in super handy, no looking at your phone, just let your watch know who you want to call and you will be placing a phone call the safe way!

Texting when your driving is a big no no in my book, so if you really need to send a text this smart watch is the best way to do it!

Other Features

One of my favorite things about this smart watch is the “find your phone” feature.  It’s pretty much like a leash for your phone, if you can’t find it ask your watch to do just that!  You can also find your watch via your phone if you somehow manage to lose that too!

The G2G Smart Watch is also compatible with iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad Air, iPad (3rd and 4th generation), iPad mini, iPad 2, iPod touch (4th and 5th generation), Android smartphones and Android tablets.  So pretty much most types of phones and tablets that are commonly used right now.

The watch comes with a charger for the smart features and it really only took me about 20 minutes to charge it for the first time.  The face of the watch is a scratch resistent glass crystal and is displayed in a stainless steel case with a fire-retardant resin back plate.

My Thoughts

I am really amazed with the features and usability of the G2G Smart Watch.  The LED display screen is easy to read, it can light up so you can use it to find a keyhole at night, which definitely comes in handy for most people I’m guessing!

I love the texting and voice command feature, it’s great when your driving and much safer than looking at your phone. The watch is extremely well put together, everything about this watch id perfect and I love that when I’m working out I don’t need to pick my phone up for every call or message!

Like every operating system there are updates, when you purchase the watch and there are updates all you need to do is download them.

You can also check out all of your most recent notifications by just tapping the watch face, this is super handy!

Overall I’ve never seen a watch like this, the features are amazing!

Martian watches are also now sold in store such as Best Buy, Bloomingdale’s and Target.  They are also available in Canada at Future Shop.  You can also purchase directly from their online store.
