Installed Whatsapp onto the KW88.
Except for 1 thing it works flawlessly (without simcard).
Whatsapp allows an installation to run on a non-tablet Android device.
After a verification process on my phone it initialised and worked.
Of course first thing I tried was to make a phone call with WhatsApp.
On the receiving end the person could hear me perfectly, but unfortunately I could not hear the person talking.
Also when I pressed the record audio button the receiver complained the audio was very hard to hear. Received audio sounded perfect.
For the rest WhatsApp works fine.
On installation there is an option to restore conversations. Be aware it also syncs media. In my case it was 500MB. I deleted it afterwards to free memory space.
Also when you transfer your WhatsApp account to your smartwatch it no longer works on your phone. You need to re-verify it on your phone to transfer it back.
If you re-verify it incorrectly you get a time lock on your next retry of a couple of hours.
Now if only I could get the audio receive problem worked out we’d have a working phone call solution.
