Cheap, Cheerful and 3G: ZTE Quartz Coming to T-Mobile This Friday

$192 USD? That’s Pebble territory…!

But it is indeed the launch price of the ZTE Quartz, an Android Wear 2.0 smartwatch with standalone 3G connectivity available exclusively from T-Mobile this Friday, April 14th—and in T-Mobile stores a week after that.

As its price would suggest, there’s no on-board heart rate sensor or NFC; here’s what it does have:

1.4 inch 400 x 400 round AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass 3
1.1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor
4 GB storage
500 mAh battery
GPS
Bluetooth 4.1
802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi
Networks: GSM 850/1900, UMTS Bands II (1900), IV (1700/2100) V (850)
Band: interchangeable 22 mm with quick release
Built-in speaker
IP67 water resistance

3G support and the built-in speaker will enable the watch to make and receive phone calls on the T-Mobile network; what’s not yet known is how much T-Mobile will charge for that additional service.
