The LEMFO LEM 10 is a standalone smartwatch running a customized version of Android 7.1. LEMFO released two variants, a cheaper 1GB/16GB, and a 3GB/32GB version, both with a 1.88″ square display.
The LEM 10 shouldn’t be confused with the LEMFO LEM X, a circular watch, rather, the LEM 10 has a square form factor similar to the Apple Watch, but with an Android OS.

The LEMFO LEM 10 is an Apple Watch clone if I ever saw one, however, it is constructed with plastic and metal casing that doesn’t provide the same quality anywhere close to the Apple Watch. On the right side, you’ll find a rotating crown, microphone, and the power button. On the left, you have the sim card slot that needs a screwdriver to open. It does come with options for nylon or two-tone leather removable straps which is a nice touch.
The camera has been moved to the front of the device on this model and allows video calling. The camera is 2MP and scales up to 5MP using special software. While it’s not the best resolution, you’ll find the camera suitable for taking some decent pictures and video calling, but it wouldn’t qualify as a daily driver.
On the back, there is a heart rate monitor and four-pin port for charging and data transfer. This model doesn’t come with a charging dock; instead, it comes with only a USB charging cable. The LEMFO LEM 10 has a 1.88′ LCD IPS display with a resolution of 320*360, and like most full android smartwatches, the LEM 10 is a large device.
If you have small wrists, you may want to consider another model unless you’re into large watches. It isn’t so large that it’s uncomfortable, but you cannot forget you’re wearing it.
The LEM 10 is running the MediaTek 6739 with a 780mAh battery; however, this isn’t the dual MediaTek 6739 + NRF52840 processing unit which gives the device two operating modes. The LEM 10 doesn’t have the dual operating modes like the Zeblaze 5 Dual, but the 700mAh battery makes up for it by giving you little over a day of battery life.
If you don’t get at least a day of usage, it’s because your not using the battery saving option, or you’ve installed way too many apps that use 4G and push notifications. Ultimately, your battery life will depend on how many apps you install and how you use the device.
The LEMFO LEM 10 comes with 3GB of ram and 32GB of internal storage but also has an economical 1GB/16GB option. The navigation is fluid, and anyone that has used an Android device will find their way around the OS just fine. It will take some time to figure out the menus. Swiping up will take you to health data, left goes notifications, down goes to quick toggles, right goes to the app drawer, and right again to health applications. And, since it’s a modified Android operating system, you cannot change the widgets or add new ones.
Being that the LEM 10 is going for the Apple Watch look, I thought the rotating crown would be more functional. Instead, it’s basically a back button and provides no other functionality. The side button under the crown will take you to the home screen if pressed once, and to the quick toggles menu if long-pressed.
The application drawer has a similar look to the Apple Watch apps screen and you can change things around as you please. Even the home screen “watch face” looks similar to Apple’s but doesn’t provide the same functionality. It’s basically a way to see your step counts, battery and weather. You cannot add different widgets or “complications”.
Finally, the LEMFO LEM 10 comes with an IP67 rating and removable bands. You can choose your color option at checkout, and I’ll add sources for more bands as I find them.
The LEM 10 has a 4G LTE radio unlocked for any GSM carrier. Check the product page to see if your area supports the bands. In the United States, T-mobile, AT&T, Cricket, and MetroPCS work fine but depending on the area, you might get LTE or 3G
Bluetooth 4.0 is available for using headphones or sending and receiving files, however, there is no Bluetooth calling with any Android 7.1.1 devices due to Google’s restrictions. Maybe that will change when devices with newer Android versions are released. Right now, only devices with Android 5.0 have Bluetooth calling.
GPS works excellent with Google Maps, Uber, Yelp, etc, but not with the built-in fitness applications provided by LEMFO. You’ll have to install Google Fit or wait until they push out an update. Most Android smartwatches have this issue so this isn’t a LEMFO specific issue.
Android smartwatches come with their own fitness applications with activities such as Outdoor Running, Walking, Indoor Running, Bike Riding, and a few others. If you want to track your distance using GPS, the watch doesn’t use the pedometer instead of the GPS module. Again, you’ll need to install Google Fit to use GPS for your fitness apps or wait until LEMFO pushes out an update. By the time you read this article, they may have already done so
The LEMFO LEM 10 uses the WiiWatch 2 companion app to pair with your smartwatch; however, pairing it restricts some of the smartwatch’s capabilities. You can receive notifications but can’t reply. The app is really only good for changing watch faces and viewing health data. There is an IOS version in case you have an iPhone, but the experience is worse than the Android version
There is a 1-year warranty for manufacturer defects and you should check the product pages for all of the specs. You might also find the Full Android Watch forum helpful for tweaks, tricks, and to see what others in the community are doing with their full android smartwatches. Also, xda-developers also a great source for information for Android devices.
