1.Can you use or Install Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter on a DZ09 Smartwatch?
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.
2.How many versions of the DZ09 SmartWatch exist?
There are about four (4) main versions that are being sold right now of the DZ09 SmartWatch.These versions include:
1.0 First Generation with:No Support for Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter
2.0 Second Generation: Support for-Facebook, Whatsapp and twitter.
2.1 Third Generation:Support for Facebook and Twitter, (but no Whatsapp)
2.5 Fourth Generation:Support for Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter
There might be future version with updated software and support for more apps.Please note also that the Apps mentioned above are pre-installed out of the box.
Watch the video below for all your answers or ask your questions in the comment section of the Video.
3.Where can I buy a new DZ09 SmartWatch?
It next to impossible to tell which version you will get unless the seller states otherwise. You can use the price to make a guess as updated version will cost more. But it’s still a hit or miss otherwise. If you want to try your luck see the link below to buy but remember I am not guaranteeing anything in terms of which version you will get.
Also remeber you can always contact the seller and ask them which version is for sale or to check for you what version is being sold or what Apps are pre-installed.
4.Do you have to use a SIM card for the DZ09 Smartwatch to work?
No the Smartwatch works just fine without a SIM card, however to take advantage of the feature its recommended that you use one. Also Apps like Whatsapp and Facebook will not work without the SIM present.

The DZ09 Smartwatch will connect to the iPhone and you can make calls. Some other features may or may not work though as it’s a bit buggy.

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.
calm down bro, all you had to say was you got it to work on your version of the DZ09, after all I did not say I was an authority. sheeesh
hahah … wonderful comment …. the most mannerd and appropriate reply
I found a switch code in my DZ09 to toggle between A2DP Normal/PTS mode The code is *#1234#
What did that mean?
CAN I USE WHATSAPP ON FAKE DZ09 WATCH
If the App is pre-installed you should be able to use it or get notifications from your phone.
What app do I need on my phone to connect to the dz09, 2.0?
Try BTNotification, it can be found in the PlayStore
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?
If it wont work completely with that app try:BTNotification, should work much better and do exactly what you want.
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.
my dz09, don’t know if it is fake or not, won’t switch on if I inset sim card or sdcard, either one it won’t switch on unless I remove both 😕
That strange something might be wrong with the device itself.

Don’t think so
No only Bluetooth
Does the SIM card have to be for a smart phone for it to work?
When you mention a sim is that the sim from my phone or a different sim as i have mine in my phone not in the smart watch so how do you open to insert smart watch sim can i use another sim not the one from my phone
When trying to sync my Samsung Luna to my DZ09, the phone recognizes my phone but not the other way around. What am I doing wrong?
Did not get that 100% but make sure that the Bluetooth is on on the Watch and that its on as well on the phone then search from the phone and pair both devices.
Hello I am not sure to using a sim card are you referring to a seprate sim or the one you use in your phone i don’t like this idea if i have to use my sim card from my actual phone, yet i have not tried to open the device up really not sure how to i think you have added some great info, really need to know more just about this sim can you use a different sim only wish the device had wifi but at least you can recieve calls and call

HOW DO I ACTIVATE WHATSAPP ON MY SMARTWHATCH DZ09.20
Hi, my Smartwatch came with Whatsapp pre installed. I’ve inserted my sim and everything else is working fine, but I can’t seem to go into the Whatsapp itself, it simply says “insert t-card”
What does that mean?
My Smartwatch is not connected to a smartphone.
My smart watch keeps saying emergency . How do you fix that? also where you put your country I can”t find Canada . Where do I find it?

Make sure you have the BTNotification App installed and if you already do re-sync the phone and the Smartwatch.
i had a dz09 smartwatch hooked to my phone and now i dont have it anymore.how do i use my phone again without it.cause everytime i call someone on my phone cant hear the other person on the other end..please help me
Make sure the BTNotofocation app that the watch uses is uninstalled from your phone, also turn Bluetooth off and make sure your phones volume is turned up. There is no reason the phone should not work as normal that the watch is not around.
Yeah bluetooth headphones work fine with mine 🙂
Same here having no issues with Using my Bluetooth headset to listen to Music answer calls, might be related to the version some users have.
Hi Ric, I have the DZ09 and ive been trying to download whatsapp which is pre-installed but not downloaded. But Whenever I try to Install/Download it, it shows library update and then time out. I have a sim and a memory card in it. But I cant seem to figure out why I cant download whatsapp into it.!?
I think you have to make sure you have mobile data from your carrier so you can connect to the Mobile internet and download.
Got a DZ09 1 months ago. Can I change the watchface of this watch? I also have a doubt of this watch being fake. Apparently original watches has a Tools shortcut in the homescreen..while mine one dosent. Can you confirm it for me.

Yes if its synced by Bluetooth.
So if a have my aim card in my phone with my carrier do I have to get a SIM card from my carrier for the watch and dose both SIM cards need to be actacided for all the apps to work on the watch
It should work once the SIM fits your watch and you have a data plan, some features are dependent on the app.
Can we use facebook messenger in dz09 smartwatch..
Do you know there is an App Store called zm entertainment on DZ09 smart watch

You should be able to use any SIM card as long as it fits as the Watch is unlocked.

Mine does the same thing. Have you found a solution yet?
Hi if i click on install then the middle part of the screen turns black ????
Strange, reboot the watch and if all else fails go ahead and reset it as that might fix the issue.
Mine is doing the same thing, I have a sim card and data plan and can not log onto Facebook, can you tell me why and also how do I reboot the watch.
HOW CAN I IDENTIFY THE Version
There is no way to tell other than the look of the interface as far as I know.
Is there a way to configure the watch Auto-answer phone calls ? OR Auto-answer whatsapp calls ?

I have tried everything to Bluetooth connect my DZ09 to my galaxy 8s, it keeps saying connection failed, I’m usually pretty good with these thing but I cannot figure it out. Please help.
Is this watch Wi-Fi compatible?
No its not WiFi Compatible.
Thanks for the good information on your site, I thought this might help some people. To avoid having to get Contacts from your phone every time you connect to it, or to use the watch as a stand alone phone transfer Contacts from BT to the SIM card if you have one as follows. When the BT contacts are showing on the watch do an export, then go to the All contacts and import. Look for the VCARD file, when I did it the VCARD file was not in the VCARD folder but was by itself.
Can I clone my sim from phone and use it in the watch?
Can you get the face to stay on? Or is there a motion option for the face to come on?
my watch is in foreign languages
which 4g sim card shoud I use for my dz09 smartwatch
Hi, I’m Dennis. I really like your answers. I have one question on the DZ09. I would want to access my sim app from the watch. It doesn’t show a sim app like other smartphones when the sim is inserted. How can I go about it? I would want to use the watch as stand alone, so accessing the sim app would be helpful for me. Thanks.
The sound isn’t working and i have a small picture of headphones in the left side up is that affecting the sound
