Kospet Optimus 2: A bizarre smartwatch that runs Android with a massive battery and an LTE modem
Kospet has released another strange smartwatch, having already released the likes of the Note. The company has dialled things up a notch with the Optimus 2 though, not least because of its 13 MP camera. Kospet claims that the Optimus 2 runs Android 10.7, even though such a version does not exist. Instead, Tech Spurt shows that the Optimus 2 contains a heavily customised version of Android that looks a lot like Wear OS. The Optimus 2 can run full Android apps though, unlike Wear OS smartwatches.
The Kospet Optimus 2 relies on a MediaTek Helio P22 SoC, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, making it more powerful than many Wear OS-based smartwatches. Android is a heavier OS than Wear OS, mind you, which explains the inclusion of 4 GB of RAM. Typically, Wear OS smartwatches get by with just 1 GB of RAM.
Kospet has included a 4G modem too, along with a 1.6-inch display that resolves at 400 x 400 pixels. Additionally, the Optimus 2 has a 1,260 mAh battery. While this may sound like a large battery capacity for smartwatch, Tech Spurt has demonstrated how quickly the Optimus 2 eats through its 1,260 mAh cell.
Currently, the Kospet Optimus 2 retails for US$179.99. Kospet states that it will sell the smartwatch for US$249.99 eventually, although we do not know how true that is. Kospet sells through Amazon, but the Optimus 2 is only available from the company's website, for the time being.
