What you get
The Zeblaze Thor 5 dual is a sporty smartwatch with a 1.39″ AMOLED display running at 454*454. The Thor 5 Dual is one of a couple of smartwatches with dual operating modes, the other being the Kospet Optimus Pro. This model includes an 8MP camera on the right side for video calling.
Traditionally, the physical buttons on full Android smartwatches are on the right side. However, because of the large camera, the physical buttons are placed on the left. The Thor 5 Dual also features a nano sim card slot, heart rate monitor, and four-pin connection for charging and data transfer.
The Thor 5 Dual runs the MediaTek 6739 + NRF52840 dual-processor with a 545mAH battery. The dual-processor gives it two operating modes. In its regular mode, the battery life averages one full day of battery life. However, in LiteOS mode, the battery life gets stretched to 4 days. The additional battery life comes at a cost, though, while in LiteOS mode, the cellular features are turned off, and the Thor 5 Dual turns into a basic smartwatch with heart-rate monitoring.
The Zeblaze Thor 5 Dual comes with 2GB of ram and 16GB of internal storage. Navigation is fluid with little lag, if any. However, because it runs a customized version of Android, some applications from the Play Store won’t take advantage of the large screen. Just be aware of that when you’re installing applications.
The Zeblaze Thor 5 Dual has a 4G LTE radio unlocked for any GSM carrier. Check below to see if your area supports the bands. In the United States, T-mobile, AT&T, Cricket, and MetroPCS work fine. Bluetooth 4.0 is available for using headphones or sending and receiving files; however, there is no Bluetooth calling with Android 7.1.1 devices due to Google’s restrictions. GPS is also available and works excellently with Google Maps, Google Fit, Uber, Yelp, etc.
Android smartwatches come with their fitness applications with Outdoor Running, Walking, Indoor Running, Bike Riding, and a few others. You can also install Google Fit or any fitness app you like from the Google Play Store, but the built-in apps are easy to use, easily accessible, and baked into the widgets.
The WiiWatch 2 app is used to pair the Zeblaze Thor 5 Dual with your smartwatch, but pairing restricts some of the smartwatch’s capabilities. If you’re wearing it and have a different number (sim), you can respond to SMS and notifications. However, if you’re connected to Bluetooth and receive a text on your phone, you can see the message (on your watch), but you can’t reply. To remedy this, you can install the Droid Assistant App.
Zeblaze offers a 60-day money-back guarantee on their devices. Please see Zeblaze’s shop page for details on returns, shipping, and warranty information.
