Engadget Review

The ZTE Quartz is an affordable intro to Android Wear 2.0

ZTE’s strategy to entice smartwatch buyers is obvious: make a decent wearable that’s cheaper than anything else on the market. That’s what you’ll get with the Quartz -- a basic Android Wear 2.0 device with cellular support and a better-than-average battery. It is slightly slower than competing watches, but the money you’ll save may make you feel better while waiting for apps to load.

Pros
  • Affordable
  • Long-lasting battery
  • Cellular support for phone-free calls and texts
  • Water resistant build
Cons
  • Occassionally sluggish performance
  • Bland aesthetic
  • No NFC
  • No heart rate sensor
