The Kospet Prime is a standalone smartwatch running a customized Android 7.1 OS. It’s one of the latest devices released by Kospet, along with the Kospet Vision. Its customized version of Android gives the user full access to the Google Play Store and many of the functions of a smartphone.
What you get
In terms of design, the Kospet Prime appears to be a hybrid of watches we’ve seen before, namely, the Kospet Optimus Pro and Zeblaze Thor 5 Dual. While the physical buttons appear to be the same on the Optimus, its camera placement and outdoorsy “rugged” design are reminiscent of the Zeblaze Thor 5 with a bit more class.
The Prime has a 2MP front-facing camera that scales to 5MP (using software) and 8MP side-facing camera with a facial recognition “unlock” feature that works very well much faster since the latest firmware update.
Like most full Android smartwatches, the Kospet Prime is a large device and weighs 83g with its dimensions being 27.40 x 5.08 x 1.75 cm. Additionally, the Prime has a 1.6″ IPS display running at 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 the time of this writing. Even the battery pack on for the LEM 11 is only 1200mAH.
I’ve seen videos showing the Kospet Prime playing music for 72 continuous hours. While that might be true, this isn’t a real-world statistic. 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 expected, especially if you’re using LTE. Still, with 1200mAH, you should get close to three days of battery if you’re conservative, it will depend on each person’s usage.
The Kospet Prime originally launched with 3GB of ram and 32GB of internal storage. However, since last year’s CES event, Kospet launched a new 1GB/16GB model called the Kospet Prime SE. 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 as expected 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. However, Kospet Prime does have GPS built-in and ready to use with the fitness apps and all applications that require it.
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. If you’re wearing it and have a separate (sim) number, you can respond to SMS and notifications. However, if you’re connected to Bluetooth and receive a text on your phone, you can see the message (on the watch) but can’t reply. To remedy this, you can install the Droid Assistant App.
There is a 1-year warranty for manufacturer defects. Check the product page for return policies.
