The Kospet Hope 4G is a standalone smartwatch running a customized version of Android 7.1. It comes with 3GB of ram, 32GB of internal storage, and is the successor to the Kospet Hope Lite, which came with 1GB of ram and 16GB of internal storage.
Kospet Hope 4G
The Kospet Hope is one of the first full Android smartwatches with a ceramic bezel, giving it a clean and classic look. It’s dedicated power and back button are reminiscent of the LEMFO LEF3 and provide an enjoyable experience while navigating the OS.
Between the dedicated buttons, you’ll find an 8MP camera that takes decent photos. I’ve always been against side-facing cameras because it’s difficult to take pictures while the watch is on your wrist. The camera should be front-facing to allow video calling.
On the back, you’ll find the sim card slot, heart rate monitor, and the 2-pin connector for charging. Typically, there is a 4-pin connection to allow data transfer, but this model does not have that functionality. Instead, you’ll have to transfer files via Bluetooth using the WiiWatch2 application. The Kospet
Hope 4G has a 1.39′ AMOLED display running a resolution of 400*400 and has 22mm replaceable bands made of Silica Gel.
The Kospet Hope uses the MediaTek 6739 processor running at 1.25Ghz with a 620mAH battery. This processor isn’t the dual MTK6739 processor setup that offers the two operating modes, but Kospet claims 3-5 days of standby time.
Ultimately, your battery life will depend on how you use the device. Since all of the applications from the Play Store are available to you, you will need to limit them as they use quite a bit of data which drains the battery. Still, with a 620mAH battery, you can expect a full day of battery life.
The Hope 4G has 3GB of ram and 32GB of internal storage which is the maximum resources you can get. The navigation is fluid and you won’t have any issues with lag or installing apps or media. It may take some time to become familiar with the different widgets are where everything is located though. They use a customized version of Android with its own widgets and navigation panels that cannot be changed or removed.
Some applications don’t take advantage of the full display and this usually happens with apps installed from the Play Store. You’ll often need to use the built-in application adapter by holding down the “power button” and selecting the icon at the top of the screen. It changes the orientation of the app from a circle to a square, allowing you to see more of the application’s content. See the Janus & Lokmat X360 review for pictures of what this looks like.
The Kospet Hope has an IP67 rating, rain and sweat won’t damage the smartwatch but it cannot be submerged.
The Kospet Hope has a 4G LTE radio unlocked for any GSM carrier. Check the product pages to see if your area supports the bands. In the United States, T-mobile, AT&T, Cricket, and MetroPCS work fine but depending on the area, you might get LTE or 3G.
Bluetooth 4.0 is available for using headphones or sending and receiving files, however, there is no Bluetooth calling with any Android 7.1.1 devices due to Google’s restrictions. Maybe that will change when devices with newer Android versions are released. Right now, only devices with Android 5.0 have Bluetooth calling.
GPS works excellent with Google Maps, Uber, Yelp, etc, but not with the built-in fitness applications provided by Kospet. You’ll have to install Google Fit or wait until Kospet pushes out an update. Most Android smartwatches have this issue so this isn’t a Kospet specific issue. By the time you read this, they may have already fixed this.
Android smartwatches come with their own fitness applications with activities such as Outdoor Running, Walking, Indoor Running, Bike Riding, and a few others. If you want to track your distance using GPS, the watch doesn’t use the pedometer instead of the GPS module. At some point, the manufacturer will push out an update to fix this. In the meantime, you can use Google Fit if you need GPS tracking on the Hope.
The Hope 4G uses the WiiWatch 2 companion app to pair with your smartwatch; however, pairing them restricts some of the smartwatch’s capabilities. You can receive notifications but can’t reply. The app is really only good for changing watch faces and viewing health data. There is an IOS version in case you have an iPhone, but the experience is worse than the Android version.
There is a 1-year warranty for manufacturer defects and you should check the product pages for all of the specs.
