Questions and Answers
|Q. What really are mobile phone watches?|
A. The straight-forward answer - is that they are just that! A regular wristwatch - with a built in mobile phone! For
years we have seen the likes of MP3
player wristwatches, but recently we've seen more technology being crammed into the humble wristwatch. Mobile phone
functionality in watches is the next generation.
|Q. Wow! That's fantastic! So what else can your watches do?|
A. Aside from being a timekeeping device and a mobile phone - our watches have bags of other functionality
crammed in! Features vary between models but common across most of the range you'll find bluetooth connectivity, built in
microphone and (stereo) speakers, a touch screen interface, unlocked for any SIM-card usage, text-messaging and more! Other
features usually include a built-in camera (video and still), FM radio, waterproof, SD-Card storage, dual SIM card slots,
internet browser, MP3 player, video player, dictation/sound recorder, calendar/personal organiser, to-do list, games, email
client - and more!
|Q. Wait a minute. SIM-card unlocked?|
A. That's right! All of our mobile phones can be used with any mobile phone operator, on any network
that supports GSM - Pay As You Go or Contract! Simply remove your SIM card from your existing phone and place it in our mobile phone watch - it really
is that easy!
|Please note, however, that whilst our mobiles are unlocked for use with any network - they currently will not work on the 'Three' network. Unfortunately, this is due to 3 only supporting the 3G network
(over which we have no control). Also please note that if you moving away from a phone that only uses 3G (for instance, the iPhone, HTC, etc) - then you may need to request a replacement (GSM only) SIM card from your network provider.|
|Q. Are mobile phone watches bulky?|
A. Not really! However, some are ever so slightly bigger than your regular slimline sports watches. Each product has
it's dimensions listed on it's product information page to show it's size. On an average build person - these don't look out
of place at all! Thin/Slim build individuals may want to try one of our thinner watches (like
|Q. So how do I make and recieve calls?|
A. All of our watches come bundled with a Bluetooth headset. You can either make and recieve calls through this - or
(if you would like to show off your new aquisition a little) you can use the in-built speakers and microphone! Dialing
numbers is achieved through the touchscreen interface or (depending on the model) through the keypad built into the
|Q. I notice that some of your models can use Dual SIM cards. What use is this?|
A. Good question! Say for instance you have a mobile phone for use for business purposes - and a mobile phone for
personal use. Carrying around two phones is cumbersome to say the least - so our Dual SIM card mobile phone watches will
allow you to use BOTH SIM cards in the same watch! Depending on the model, an indicator will show you which SIM card
is in use and recieving a call!
|Q. Do I have to be without my watch whilst it's charging?|
A. Not at all! Most of our models ship with two batteries and a separate charging unit. This means that you can
either take your watch off to charge when it's not in use - or, alternatively, keep the spare battery in the charging unit
and simply switch over the batteries when the one in your watch is running low.
|Q. Cool! I want one now! How quickly can you get my order to me?|
A. All of our orders are sent through a registered and fully tracked courier. Once your order has
been despatched, you'll recieve a unique tracking reference number which will enable you to track your package from our warehouse
to your front door. For mainland UK, all orders booked before midday will be despatched to arrive between 9am and 5pm the next
working day. Orders placed after midday will arrive in 48 hours time. Orders to Europe will usually take 1-3 working days. However,
if time is a factor for your order, please be sure to check stock levels before you place your order as this may effect delivery
times. Stock levels can be found at the bottom of the products information page.
|Q. What kind of warranty do you offer?|
A. Unlike some other providers, we believe in the quality of our products. So much so that we offer a
twelve months warranty from date of purchase on all of our mobile phone watches against manufacturing defects and materials. Please
note that this does not cover adoes not cover accidental damage, misuse, everyday wear and tear (scratches, knocks, etc), improper
care or alteration and also excludes claims for incidental or consequential loss.
|Q. I've lost my stylus/bluetooth headset/MicroSD card! Can you help!|
A. Sure! We've got an entire section devoted to accessories and spare parts for
your mobile phone watch. They include spare parts (like stylus', batteries, etc) - but we also stock accessories like
USB card readers, MicroSD adapters, wall chargers and more! Click here to check out the
Spares and Accessories section now!
|Q. I've been stung by duty and tax from other retailers. Do you charge any of this?|
A. Absolutely not! We are a registered UK based limited company. If you are also in the UK - you
will not pay any tax, duty or excise!
|Q. I've found a similar watch (on eBay/on a market/elsewhere) for a lesser price!|
A. We constantly check our prices to remain competitive but have also set them on our website to reflect
the product and the service you recieve from us. You're more than welcome to purchase from other retailers - but please be sure
that you are comparing like-for-like. Does the other retailer ship from abroad? If so, you will probably be liable for import duty
and taxes! Also, you might not be covered under the Distance Selling Regulations 2000 (as these only protect you on purchases made in
Europe) and may not be able to return the item if you are not satisfied with your purchase! Do they offer any kind of warranty? If not,
then your investment might be useless if it breaks in a few months time! As above, we offer a full 12 months warranty with our watches.
Do they have any additional/hidden charges? They may charge over the odds for posting the item (for instance) to bulk up their profits.
Do they offer you the fullest range of mobile phone watches possible? Can they provide you with a full range spares and accessories?
Be sure to bear in mind all of these considerations when making your purchase (wherever it may be from!)
