A Review of the Android G7 Hydraumatic

Android G7 SkeletonThe Android G7 Hydraumatic watch from Android Watches is a new watch that is certain to catch your eye.

Wing Liang, founder of the Android Watch Company, is a designer who is known on the sceneĀ  for having extremely innovative and otherworldly designs, and the G7 is certainly no exception to this. The Android G7 is a classic looking silver tone watch at first glance, but upon further inspection you really notice the little accents that Liang has put into the watch to make it it’s own work of art. It has been said that the devil is in the details, and this certainly rings true for the Android G7.

To start out, let’s take a look at the case of the watch. It comes in only one color (for the case that is), which is a high polish chrome/silver color. The color variations come into play when we talk about the face of the watch, but we will get into that later when I talk about the skeleton feature. The case is 46 mm wide and 15 mm thick, so it is certainly a big watch, as most Androids are, but it isn’t one of their biggest. It features an automatic Seagull TY2809 hardened mineral crystal with 21 Jewels for it’s movement, which is sure to give you many years of reliable time telling. It also features a push/pull crown, and water resistance up to 330 feet. The cuff is stainless steel like the case, and comes with wire-like little embellishments that run around it to give it a little aesthetic flair. It definitely makes it look more like a watch from Android.

Now, onto my favorite part of the watch: the skeletonized internals. This is one of the newer features that the Android watch company has been using in their watches lately, and I think that it is pretty awesome. It certainly adds to the visual flair of the watch, and gives it that little pop. Basically, what Android has done is they have made the working innards of the watch partly visible rather than hide them in the case. So when you are glancing at your watch to see what time it is, the little gears and cogs that make it tick are exposed under a translucent window in the face of the watch. The internals can come in a wide variety of colors, such as blue, red, gold, and silver, and this is what really gives the watch it’s varied look.

Overall, I really like the looks of the Android G7 Hydraumatic; it is a nice mix of dressy and casual, with just that extra little flair thrown in to give it the cool factor. It also has the awesome skeleton feature, which is one of the coolest features that Android has come out with in recent years. On top of that, if is water resistant and boasts the quality name of the Android Watch Company. Seriously what else do you need in a watch?
