Cherry Mobile G1 Watch Phone Unboxing

We got curious about the Cherry Mobile G1 Watch Phone so we bought one for review. Finding one was a big challenge for us since the G1 watch phone is selling like hotcakes. I spent half of the day yesterday scouring the Cherry Mobile stores and mobile shops in Cash and Carry, Greenbelt, Glorietta, SM Makati and SM Mall of Asia but was unable to find one.

Early this morning, I asked my sister to check the Cherry Mobile store in SM North. Luckily they have just restocked and the Cherry Mobile G1 watch phone was available. She also got to choose from green, yellow, blue and red.

Unboxing and First Impressions


Same with most of the Cherry Mobile products, the Cherry Mobile G1 packaging is plain and nothing fancy. Inside the box are the user manual, unit charger, Bluetooth headset and cable charger and the G1 watch phone.


The Cherry Mobile G1 watch phone’s materials and quality is a far cry from the premium wearable devices but what do you expect from a Php 1,699 device. The case/body is made of hard plastic and the strap, soft rubber. The Cherry Mobile G1 watch phone more reminds me of a toy watch I have when I was a kid.


The power button, together with the camera and volume keys can be found on the right side of the device. On the left side is a micro-USB port for charging.


Opening the plastic back cover reveals the 400mAh battery. Underneath the battery are the two SIM slots and memory card slot. The TFT Touch LCD display gives the same visual quality that of the low-end Cherry Mobile phones. Surprisingly, the touch screen is responsive but navigating on a 1.44” screen is very demanding especially if you have large fingers. Same goes with typing on the keypad.

I still haven’t tried making calls and sending SMS using the Cherry Mobile G1 watch phone but I’m looking forward to using this for the next few days.

  1. Nice review!
    you are the first to get a review on this thing. Appreciate it Joey/ptb!

  2. how long does the battery last?

    • that’s one of the things we’re going to test :)

      • i already got G1 for almost two weeks and so far the battery lasts for a couple of days without charging on standby (using it only as a watch). but when i listen to mp3′s using the bluetooth headset provided, the device still lasts for a couple of hours until it gets fully drained.

    Ung bluetooth earphone naiconnect ko sa ibng cp..perp sa G1 ko ayaw na..
    Ano dpat gwin dun..thanks

  37. You know if you buy one try it the Bluetooth first if it work it’s ok.
    Then try the touch screen if it is working.
    Then try the charger and the Bluetooth if it work then buy one.

    Your problem is only basic.

  38. gusto ko bumili ng ma-try hahaha ;)
    na-featured kasi ito last 2weeks sa PopTalk hehe

  39. Paano po Malalaman Na Done Charging Na ??
