Zeblaze Thor 5 Pro
What you get
The Zeblaze Thor 5 Pro is somewhat of an upgrade from its predecessor, the Thor 4 Pro. While the biggest noticeable change is the dual-camera setup, most of the upgrades are under the hood. The Thor 5 Pro still has a 1.6″ LTPS display running a 320*320 resolution and has ceramic bezels with Gorilla Glass 3.
With the addition of the new 5MP front-facing camera, Zeblaze has introduced facial unlocking software that works very well as of the latest firmware update. Most flagship full Android smartwatches typically have quite a bit of weight to them. However, the Thor 5 Pro is relatively light, weighing only 65.7g.
The Thor 5 Pro has a nano sim card slot, always-on heart-rate monitor, and four-pin connector on the back for charging and data transfer. Additionally, Zeblaze has included 22mm removable straps made of Italian leather and silicone.
The Zeblaze Thor 5 Pro uses the MediaTek 6739 processor clocked at 1.25Ghz with an 800mAH battery. Battery life is usually two days depending on your usage. Apps with push notifications and LTE data are primarily responsible for all battery drainage on full Android smartwatches. Zeblaze claims a 75% charge in just 1 hour, which is fairly accurate.
The Thor 5 Pro has 3GB of ram and 32GB of storage. Currently, there is no 1GB/16GB option. Navigation is fluid and the apps run very smoothly. With access to the full Google Play Store, you can install any application you want. Just keep in mind that not all apps will take advantage of the display size.
You’ll often need to use the built-in adapter by holding down the “power button” and selecting the icon at the top of the screen. It changes the orientation of the app from a circle to a square, allowing you to see more of the application’s content. See the Janus & Lokmat X360 review for pictures of what this looks like.
Finally, the Thor 5 Pro has a “Life Waterproof” rating, which is basically IP67. Light rain and sweat won’t harm it, but submersion can cause severe damage.
The Zeblaze Thor 5 Pro 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 any Android 7.1.1 devices due to Google’s restrictions.
Additionally, GPS is available and works excellently with Google Maps, Google Fit, Uber, Yelp, etc.
Android smartwatches come with their own fitness applications with activities such as Outdoor Running, Walking, Indoor Running, Bike Riding, and a few others. You can also install Google Fit or any fitness apps from the Playstore if you choose. The built-in fitness apps, however, are easy to access with statistics built into the widgets.
The Zeblaze Thor 5 uses the WiiWatch 2 to pair with your smartwatch; however, pairing restricts some of the smartwatch’s capabilities. If you’re wearing it and have a separate number (sim), you can respond to notifications and SMS. However, if you’re connected to Bluetooth and receive a text on your phone, you can see the message but you can’t reply. To remedy this, you can install the Droid Assistant App.
There is a 1-year warranty for manufacturer defects and you should check the product pages for return policies.
