So many people have been asking can I run or install Facebook,Whatsapp or Twitter on the DZ09 Smartwatch. And the direct answer is yes you can run Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter on this Smartwatch. They actually come installed.

There is a catch though it only installed on the: 2.0,2.1 and 2.5 versions of the DZ09 SmartWatch. It’s also next to impossible to tell which version most retailers are selling most of the time. The first generation or the version 1.0 does not support any of those Apps and the 2.1 version does not come with Whatsapp.See bellow for the version information.

You will need to install a SIM card for Facebook and WhatsApp to work so bear that in mind.

    Nonsense: “Bluetooth headphones will not connect as far as i can tell.”

    It works fine with a number of A2DP sinks. I use it with BT car radio or BT headphones, even in a gym.

    I am trying to connect my DZ09 watch to the Android Wear Smartface app on my Samsung, but keeps giving me an error that says it can’t connect or waiting to connect. I mean, the audio and notifications connect, but with the Android app it doesn’t work. Is there a way of getting around this?

  • JT Long

    I’ve been trying for a couple of days to get the DZ09 to receive notifications from my phone. I have an iPhone 6 Plus. So far, the best I’ve been able to do is get the same alert sound my phone plays to play through the speaker on the watch at the same time. Is it just not possible for me to see texts (I’m not interested in sending texts from the watch) or other notifications (like breaking news or emails) on the DZ09 without a SIM card? Will it do this on an Android phone (I’m about due for a phone swap anyway)? Thanks.
