Kospet Optimus Pro
The Kospet Optimus Pro is a standalone smartwatch running a full, but customized, Android 7.11 operating system. Users have full access to the Google Play Store and all of the functions of a smartphone inside of a smartwatch. It has a 1.39″ AMOLED screen with a ceramic bezel and a resolution of 454*454.
Kospet Optimus Pro
The Kospet Optimus Pro is constructed of plastic and an alloy casing with ceramic bezel. The screen is a 1.39″ display with Gorilla Glass 4 and a resolution of 454*454. On the back, you find the sim card slot, heart rate monitor, and the four-pin connector used for charging and data transfer. On the right side, you’ll find the power and dedicated back button along with an 8MP camera.
The 8MP camera being on the side of the watch doesn’t provide many use cases, however, it does take decent photos. Ideally, the camera should be front-facing to allow video calling like the Zeblaze Thor 5 Dual or Lokmat X360 and Janus smartwatches.
The Optimus Pro is running the MediaTek 6739 + NRF52840 dual-processor with an 800maH battery. This dual processing unit gives the watch two operating modes, and Kospet claims 2-3 days of battery life in 4G mode. In Lite OS mode, the Optimus Pro should get around seven days of battery life. It’s worth noting that in LiteOS mode, the Optimus Pro doesn’t have any cellular functionality and turns into a standard watch with heart rate monitoring.
The Optimus Pro comes with 3GB of ram and 32GB of internal storage. The Optimus Pro should not be confused Kospet Optimus with only 2GB of ram and 16GB of storage.
Navigation on the Optimus Pro is fluid, and anyone familiar with Android device should feel comfortable finding their way around the system. Even though the Optimus Pro features Android 7.1.1, the OS is a customized version with its own widgets.
With full android smartwatches, it is the applications from the Play Store that are slightly frustrating. Many aren’t optimized to fit the devices’ screen and you’ll have to adjust the orientation of the apps frequently with the built-in application adapter.
The Optimus Pro has an IP67 rating which is good for light water and sweat and shouldn’t be worn during high-velocity water sports.
The Optimus Pro comes with a 4G LTE radio unlocked for any carrier. You can check the specs below to see if your area supports the bands. In the United States, T-mobile and AT&T work just fine. Bluetooth 4.0 is available if you want to use headphones or send and receive files. However, Bluetooth calling isn’t available with any Android 7.1.1 devices due to Google restrictions.
GPS works great with Google Maps and Uber but not with the built-in fitness applications provided by Kospet. You’ll need to test various applications in the Play Store if you need GPS tracking for health programs or wait until Kospet pushes out an update.
Essentially, these 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 have that functionality even though GPS is on board, it uses the pedometer instead.
This is annoying because all manufacturers in 2019 know we want GPS tracking our activities. The problem isn’t that the applications use the pedometer, the problem is that you can’t change the widgets where the inaccurate data is shown. This isn’t good for fitness enthusiasts but you can always install Google Fit.
You can buy the Kospet Optimus for $123.19 and the Optimus Pro for $139.99 on Aliexpress. At $16 difference, I see no reason to purchase the regular Optimus which has less ram and storage. The Aliexpress link below has both options.
Typically you can get help from the manufacturer when you have a hardware or software-related issue. However, you may find the Full Android Watch forum helpful for tweaks, tricks, or to see what others in the community are doing with their full android smartwatches.
