Smartwatches are increasingly getting popular in different countries across various age groups. Moreover, many thanks need to be accorded to Chinese watches that have made it possible for all people to be able to have access to at least one of the products.

In all fairness, Chinese smartwatches are relatively more affordable and accessible compared to some other types. However, the quality of such Chinese watches could be a point of concern because most of the watches are not as high-quality as some other brands.

Regardless, Chinese smartwatches are nearly easy-to-use, and in this guide, we will be putting you through how you can install VXP watch face on any Mediatek smartwatch from China.

What are smartwatches?

Before going into the details of how you can install a VXP watch face on your smartwatch, we find it extremely imperative first to tell you more about smartwatches and their usefulness. Smartwatches are small but significant devices that are crafted to be worn on a wrist.

These digital innovations are as smart as their names imply. They also come with touchscreens just like other smartphones, sharing other unique similarities with them. Wearing a smartwatch is a superior alternative to carrying other bulky devices for outdoor activities such as hiking, racing, snorkelling and a host of others.

Interestingly, Chinese smartwatches also offer similar functions just as Apple Watch models offering great usefulness to consumers.

Notable usefulness of wearing a smartwatch

Smartwatches are unique for serving some essential purposes, whether for daily use or specific outdoor use. But generally, smartwatches including Chinese wristwatches, offer the following functions to consumers:

  • Notifications: An ideal smartwatch is saddled with the responsibility of displaying messages for users. Once you connect your smartwatch to a smartphone, the device is excellent for receiving notifications of all your updates, events and activities.
  • Media Management: smartwatches are also useful for managing your media playback. They can be handy for increasing and decreasing volumes and even start and stop the music.
  • Apps: Smartwatches are as good as the phone they are paired with. Hence, a Chinese smartwatch will perform the functions of the Chinese smartphone connected to it.
  • Miscellaneous function: the other usefulnesses of Chinese smartwatches will include fitness trackings such as heartbeat, blood pressure measurement and several others. They also come with a pedometer to monitor your workout session while you run or use the treadmill. Smartwatches can also be of some use in tracking your location or receiving location-related alerts in that most of them come with GPS.

    As long as the watch has a mediatek chipset, which pretty much all generic chinese smartwatches do, then it should work flawlessly. I have a Cancgo K89 smartwatch I bought from the wish app. I downloaded the mediatek app from the playstore. 1. Sink mediatek software to your watch. 2. go to watchfaceup.com, and search for vxp compatible watchfaces (android ware has their own format, but vxp is for any mediatek chipset ). 3. Download whatever vxp format watchfaces you want. they’ll be in zip or rar format. make sure you’re downloading them to your smartphone, as this is where you will be adding the faces to the watch. 4. go to the download folder on your smartphone (under the phone storage, not sd card storage), and there, you will see the watchfaces you downloaded in zip or rar format. 5. select a watchface, it will say “extract to”. 6. go to “appmanager” folder on your smartphone (under phone storage, not sd card storage), and there is where you will extract the watchface folder. choose that watchface folder and open it, and you will see 3 files. The .png file, the .xml file, and the .vxp file. copy those three files, separate from the main folder, to the appmanger file, then delete the main folder you extracted. 7. once you’ve done that, if you open up the mediatek smartwatch software and go to the “my applications” selection, you wll see the watchface you copied to the appmanger folder on the phone. just hit install and it will install it. Done!

    If mediatek doesn’t work, download Fundo. It pretty much has the same interface as mediatek. Hope this helps.

    For digital clock face has more than 3 main files (sometimes more than 100 files). I copied it to app manager folder, but could not find it.
