PROS

  • The Martian Passport Watch has a cool design if you appreciate retro styling.
  • Battery life on the Passport is respectable. Martian rates battery life at over two hours of continuous talk time or seven days of standby.
  • Its speakerphone functionality is useful in quiet environments.

CONS

  • The Passport Watch is expensive and doesn't do enough to justify the price.
  • Alerts with the Passport Watch are limited, and Google Voice on Android isn't supported.
  • It's not waterproof, so you'll have to be mindful of not getting it wet.

The Martian can't operate on a very long leash from your smartphone: about 10 feet. The moment I went more than a room away, I'd feel a buzzing on my wrist and look down to see that the watch had disconnected.

In any public place where there is more than a small amount of ambient noise, the speakerphone is nearly useless.

It’s angular, bulky, and the leather strap is not as comfortable as the silicone version. It’s hard to imagine this watch on a slender wrist and the style is unashamedly manly.

The speaker provided quite clear and totally adequate calling on my end, but the person receiving my call often had a hard time hearing me.
