Hannspree Legend

The Hannspree Legend is very much a budget smart watch, but with claims of it still being both smart and functional we could be on to a winner. It features a 1.54-inch HD touch screen display, a brushed metal body and scratch resistant screen. As well as these external features, the watch brings a handful of other cool things to the table including various health and fitness related apps, a music player, the ability to sync with your smartphone contacts and it can be used with both iOS and Android devices.


First off, the design. There’s not much I can really say apart from it looks and feels great! It sports a  traditional leather wrist strap, and the watch itself is housed in a brushed metal body. The underside of the watch is where the charging port is located, as well as the usual company information. To charge, all you need to do is hook it up to the included charging cradle and connect the cradle to a USB port. If we move around to the edges of the watch, the right side houses the built-in speaker and the only button on the watch. This button is merely an on/off button, but does act as a way to get back to the home screen among a few other things. The left side of the watch is where the microphone is located, which will enable you to use the watch with your phone when taking calls.


All in all, the Hannspree Legend is an extremely well-made watch that feels great on your wrist. So far so good. Using the watch, however, was not so good. First off, the smartphone application to connect the watch and your phone together is awful. When I eventually got the devices connected the app kept constantly disconnecting and reconnecting by itself. This finally stopped for a few moments allowing me to actually test the health and fitness side of the app, which allows you to track various things including the amount of steps you’ve taken, the calories you’ve burned and also the length of time you’ve been working out for.

When the app is working this feature worked well, however my disconnecting and reconnecting issue soon returned. Quite a major problem, if you ask me. I carried on my tests without the fitness tracking feature. On to the smart watch operating system. Quite simply, it’s not amazing. However, for the £100 and under price-range I’m not expecting to see great things. For what it is it works well though, albeit a little slow and laggy at times.

It almost feels as if the software is unfinished, with the way apps with long names just get cut off at the end of the screen, and the way the app icons appear to have been just ported straight from an iPhone. Overall, my experience with the Hannspree Legend has been OK. It’s certainly not going to blow you away, but for the price you can’t go too wrong. The features it does have all seem to work relatively well, and the built quality is second to none, but there’s just a few areas that seem unfinished to me. Personally I’d class the Legend as more of an upgraded fitness band, instead of a smart watch. 


For those of you looking for a cheap smart watch that’s not going to break the bank, like an Apple Watch would, then the Hannspree Legend could be a viable option for you.

I give the Hannspree Legend Smartwatch a 3/5.
