ColMi i1 Pro Review: Potential Smartwatch Phone 3G in 2018

ColMi i1 Pro Review: Potential Smartwatch Phone 3G & Low Price in 2018

If you are looking for a smartwatch with Android operation system and built-in GPS receiver, but has a lot of choices, but always comes priced over $200.

We already did a test of the smartwatch ColMi i3 3G, and they showed themselves on the good side. Let’s look at the new model ColMi i1 Pro in our review and decide whether the manufacturer improved them or not.

ColMi i1 Pro Smartwatch Phone 3G

Price: $125.00

1.39 inch AMOLED with 400 x 400 pixels, RAM: 2GB, ROM: 16GB, OS: Android 5.1, Battery: 350mAh, MTK6580 Quad Core 1.3GHz

ColMi i1 Pro Smartwatch Phone 3G

Price: $125.00

1.39 inch AMOLED with 400 x 400 pixels, RAM: 2GB, ROM: 16GB, OS: Android 5.1, Battery: 350mAh, MTK6580 Quad Core 1.3GHz

The ColMi i1 Pro wants to change that. For $125.99 you get a smartwatch which consists mainly of plastic and rubber so, first of all, makes no high-quality impression.

Whether this impression is confirmed and how the smartwatch has beaten to the test, you read best yourself.

ColMi i1 Pro: Design and Appearance

The two models ColMi i3 3G and ColMi i1 Pro offer similar technical features but differ significantly in design.

I prefer optically the ColMi i3 3G with its more classic look and the changeable bracelet. It is also cheaper with $89.99.

The ColMi i1 Pro in the analisis visually rather a sports watch and resembles with its colored bezel more the products of Garmin and Co than the classic watches.

The polyurethane case and the non-changeable silicone strap are more trimmed for sporting use.

With its dimensions of 210 x 49 x 14.5 mm and a weight of around 60grams, it is rather good. The colors are black and silver.

Ticwatch The GPS receiver of the ColMi i1 Pro was, incidentally, built into the wristband and not into the case of the watch (like the ColMi i3).

With the latter, I can, therefore, use any bracelet (20 mm). For the ColMi i1 Pro in our real review unfortunately only the matching replacement bracelets.

Both housings are protected or certified according to IP67 against the ingress of water and dust.

Both models are operated via the touchscreen and a pusher on the left side of the housing. A wheel like Fossil or Apple cannot be found here.

Also on the touch strip of the ColMi i1 Pro, the manufacturer has waived. Because you could still serve the clock with a swipe gesture on the frame.

ColMi i1 Pro: Display

The 1.39-inch OLED display dissolves 400x 400 pixels (287 ppi). The ColMi i1 Pro in this test offers several levels of brightness, but no automatic and was in the test no cause for complaint.

ColMi i1 Pro Review: Potential Smartwatch Phone 3G & Low Price in 2018

The resolution is correct and the maximum brightness is also sufficient.

There is nothing better in this price range. The display is protected by scratch-resistant glass, but whether it’s Corning Gorilla Glass I can not say.

ColMi i1 Pro: Hardware and Connectivity

The ColMi i1 Pro in our test offers beside GPS (Glonass & Beidou) and 3G as well as Bluetooth 4.0.

ColMi i1 Pro Review: Potential Smartwatch Phone 3G & Low Price in 2018

The CPU is not a Snapdragon Wear, but a similarly fast MediaTek MTK6580 with Quad Cores 1.3 GHz.

ColMi i1 Pro Review: Potential Smartwatch Phone 3G & Low Price in 2018

Yes, like its fellow, the new ColMi i1 Pro has the same processor and memory. What’s the memory? Here you can find 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.

This is the really good performance for a budget smartphone, and as for smartwatches, it’s generally excellent for 2018.

ColMi i1 Pro: Software and OS

So, as you can see, this ColMi i1 Pro relies on Android 5.1. Of course, you will first find the obligatory Watchfaces with their numerous information.

In addition to the usual apps from Google (Maps, Music, Play Store), there is also a clock with alarm, a calendar, a translation app and the fitness programs Google Fit and a self-made App Mobile.

In the app called “Tic Health” I can directly view my daily workload and my progress sorted by steps, distance, active hours, calories burned and training minutes.

There is also a rather inaccurate heart rate measurement, which is not rudimentary to the level of a Garmin Fenix.

In the video review of the ColMi i1 Pro, you can see the features well.

The built-in GPS receiver gave no reason to complain. The ColMi i1 Pro found the position within a few seconds and did not lose during the sporting activities.

The watch ColMi i1 Pro in the analisis allows running, walking and cycling outside of buildings via GPS and indoor activities (treadmill and fitness) without the distance measurement by satellite.

The ColMi i1 Pro in first look allows the reception of messages of any kind and also the answer via a small, virtual keyboard.

Calls can also be routed through the built-in microphone and speaker, much to the delight of the curious seat neighbors.

Better there is the coupling of a Bluetooth headset. The connection to the smartphone (Android 4.3 and IOS 8 or higher version) is ensured via Bluetooth or WLAN (and Android Wear).

Apps can also be installed on the Play Store without a smartphone. At least if the corresponding WLAN of the clock was previously “announced”.

ColMi i1 Pro: Battery

The built-in battery is charged via a small puck with pogo pins and lasted in the test between 4 hours (permanent GPS) and just under one and half days.

ColMi i1 Pro Review: Potential Smartwatch Phone 3G & Low Price in 2018

The display was always active and activated via the usual hand-to-face gesture (brightness level 2 of 5). The charging process takes about 1 hour. A charger is not included.

ColMi i1 Pro: Conclusions and Reviews

The ColMi i1 Pro in our review is a good smartwatch based on Android OS with good hardware and performance in 2018.

ColMi i1 Pro Review: Potential Smartwatch Phone 3G & Low Price in 2018

The display and performance are fine, the stamina is not average in a day. The usual functions – such as receiving and answering messages – are just as available as a built-in GPS receiver.

The accuracy of the heart rate sensor could be higher, however, and the feel is rather “cheap” due to the amount of plastic. But that does not detract from the functionality.

ColMi i1 Pro: Price and Where to buy cheaper?

At this moment you can buy a watch ColMi i1 Pro at a good price for $124.08 with free shipping. As you can know, watches can be cheaper since now there are no promotions and promotional codes at a discount. But as soon as we receive or know we will update the information.
