IFA 2016: Alcatel’s MoveTime WiFi, Budget Smartwatch

Unbox 123 - Alcatel MoveTime WiFi
A follow-up to the company’s earlier smart wearable named “Watch”, MoveTime WiFi is Alcatel’s return to the smartwatch industry. Alcatel announced the wearable last weekend at the recently concluded IFA 2016 in Berlin.

The MoveTime WiFi is a non-Android Gear wearable that “tells time on the move and connects to WiFi networks.” Seems like Alcatel is sticking to its age-old strategy of naming devices “by name and by nature.” The watch is part of the “Move” family of devices which include a fitness band and GPS trackers.

The smartwatch has a 400 x 400, 1.39-inch AMOLED display, has WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and the ability to send and receive calls through its built-in speaker and microphone. For its operating system, Alcatel has opted to install a custom solution that seems to share design points with the Android Wear OS.

No pricing details yet from Alcatel. Since the MoveTime WiFi is aimed at the budget segment, we’ll probably be looking the price range of their earlier Watch – around $150 (Php 7K).
