|Price history for KOSPET Prime SE|
The Kospet Prime is a standalone smartwatch running a customized Android 7.1 OS. It’s one of the latest device released by Kospet, along with the Kospet Vision. Its customized version of Android gives the user full access to the Google Play Store, and most of the functions of a smartphone in a smartwatch.
What you get
The Kospet Prime is interesting as it seems to be a hybrid of Kospet Optimus Pro and the Zeblaze Thor 5 Dual in terms of the design. While the physical buttons appear to be the same on the Optimus, its camera placement and outdoorsy “rugged” design is surely reminiscent of the Zeblaze Thor 5, but more classy.
The Prime has a 2MP front-facing camera that scales to 5MP (using software) and allows for video calling, while there is also an 8MP side-facing camera. The facial recognition “unlock” feature works well and works much faster since the latest firmware update.
Like most full Android smartwatches, the Kospet Prime is a bit large and weighs 83g, with it’s dimensions being 27.40 x 5.08 x 1.75 cm. Additionally, the Prime has a 1.6″ IPS display running a resolution of 400×400.
The Kospet Prime runs the MediaTek 6739 processor at 1.25Ghz with a 1260mAH battery. It’s a massive battery and the largest on any full Android smartwatch at this time. Even the battery pack on for the LEM 11 is only 1200mAH.
I saw a video claiming the Prime can play music for 72 continuous hours. While that might be true, this isn’t a real-world statistic. When have you played music for 72 hours? Battery life will depend on how much 4G LTE it uses and how many applications are running with push notifications.
Installing many social media apps can drain the battery faster than you think, especially if you’re using LTE. Still, with 1200mAH, you should get close to two days of battery if you’re conservative. Kospet claims 3 days but I suspect that will vary from person to person.
The Kospet Prime originally launched with 3GB of ram and 32GB of internal storage. However, since this year’s CES event, Kospet launched a new 1GB/16GB model called the Kospet Prime SE. Navigation is fluid and there is very little lag if any.
The only downside to the Kospet Prime, as with most Android watches, is that most applications don’t take full advantage of the screen. You’ll often need to use the built-in 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 Prime has an IP67 rating which Kospet calls “Life Waterproof”, meaning it’s safe from sweat and light rain.
The Kospet Prime has a 4G LTE radio unlocked for any GSM carrier. Check the bands below to see if your area is supported. In the United States, T-mobile, AT&T, Cricket, and MetroPCS work fine.
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. GPS works excellent with Google Maps, Uber, Yelp, as well as the built-in fitness applications provided by Kospet.
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, most watches use the pedometer instead of the GPS module until the manufacturer updates the firmware.
You don’t have to worry about this on the Prime but other models may not have GPS for the built-in fitness apps. In that case, you would need use Google Fit if you want that functionality until the firmware is updated.
The Kospet Prime uses the WiiWatch 2 companion app to pair with your smartwatch; however, pairing them restricts some of the smartwatch’s capabilities like responding to text messages and notifications. The app is basic and used primarily changing watch faces and viewing health data.
There is a 1-year warranty for manufacturer defects and you should check the product pages for return policies.
In this comparison, the Kospet Prime is a much larger watch and sports a larger 1260mAH battery and face unlock. The Thor 5 Pro also has face unlock but has a smaller 800mAH battery.
It’ll come down to preference; do you want a larger device with a bigger battery, or a smaller and lighter device with smaller battery. In terms of the OS, both function the same.
