GEAK Watch, the smartwatch brand backed by China’s leading online gaming company Shanda, unveiled its long-awaited GEAK Watch 2 this week. The new smartwatch is available in standard and Pro versions, and pre-orders for the gadgets are being taken on the company’s website for RMB1,999 (around US$327) and RMB2,499, respectively.

Powered by Android 4.3-enabled GEAK Watch OS, GEAK Watch 2 sports a 1.7-inch 320 x 320 circular display, Bluetooth 4.0 (2.3 in the basic model), 2.4GHz WiFi , 384MB RAM, 2GB memory, as well as a heart rate monitor and voice control functionality. (The last two features are on the Pro version only.) The smartwatch uses interchangeable 24mm leather straps, making it compatible with standard straps for traditional watches.

The TF Screen adopted by GEAK Watch 2 utilises an e-ink display effect when in standby mode. This battery-saving function allows an impressive battery life of fifteen days for the standard and eighteen days for the Pro version. Users can switch to the high-definition display mode by pressing the power button. (as shown in the picture above)
