I rarely get acquainted with little-known brands, but recently a rather interesting model of smartwatches called Corn WB01 came to my review.
I hadn’t heard of this brand before, but I was eager to learn about its functions, features, and more. Therefore, in this review, I will share with you all the possibilities that the watch offers, and also talk about its pros and cons.
The first plus for me was the price tag, which was about $20. This price is very similar to the price of fitness trackers, but not like smartwatches.
In terms of technical features, the Corn WB01 received a 1.3-inch color touch screen, an all-metal case, and IP68 water protection. In addition, the device received a large number of useful functions, which I will discuss in a detailed review below.
Therefore, I propose to start a complete and detailed review with unboxing and then see what functions and features the smartwatch from Corn has received.

Unboxing and packaging
The smartwatch comes in a small and compact white box with a picture of the device and the name of the Corn company on the front.
On the back of the box, you can find the color of the device, in my case it is black. There are also brief technical details here. For example, screen size and resolution, battery capacity, memory, processor, and others.
Inside the box, under a protective transparent plastic plate, the watch itself meets me. The device also received a protective transport film on the screen.
At the bottom of the box, there is a magnetic charging dock and instructions in Chinese and English.
In general, the package is pretty typical for an inexpensive smartwatch. Everything you need for full use is present here. Therefore, let me tell you a little about the appearance and build quality.
Design, build quality and materials used
The Corn WB01 smartwatch has a square dial and looks quite stylish on the wrist or even a thin hand. Since the size of the watch is very compact.
For example, the dimensions of the Corn WB01 were 40 x 35 x 9 mm, and the watch weighs 51 grams. When compared with other smartwatches, the Corn model is quite compact.
I really liked the build quality as the watch is completely made of metal alloy. The case is almost monolithic and I did not notice any creaks. Even the power button on the right side has a good response.
Many manufacturers also offer a metal case, but the back panel is plastic. In the case of the WB01, even the back panel is completely metal and I like that.
On the front is a 1.3-inch TFT touchscreen with a resolution of 240 x 240 pixels. The viewing angles are quite large and even the brightness in sunny weather is enough for comfortable viewing of information.
Although the bezels around the screen are not as small as we would like to see, the protective glass with rounded edges looks good. In general, I liked the quality of the screen for its price.
A heart rate sensor and two charging contacts were installed on the back of the smartwatch. Most manufacturers have some designations, but the WB01 model has nothing.
Another pleasant bonus is the presence of IP68 water protection. You can not be afraid to get your watch in the pool or take a shower.
In my case, I have a black silicone strap, which is very pleasant to the touch. Its width is 20 mm, it is also removable and therefore can be replaced with any other version with the same width.
This model is well suited for both female and male hands. If you like a neat watch and a minimalist look, then the Corn WB01 smartwatch is a good choice.
Functions, features, and application
The budget smartwatches are not famous for their wide functionality, like a real smartwatch with the Android operating system.
The main screen of the Corn WB01 smartwatch offers quite a wide range of functionality, for example, the date, day of the week, time, calories, steps, and heart rate.
If you hold on to the main screen for a few seconds, you will get into the menu of various dials. In total, the watch has three dials. You can also install more dials through the mobile application. Their number exceeds more than 100 different types.
In terms of functionality, if you swipe to the right, you will get to the activities menu. Here you can analyze your steps, distance traveled, and other features. If we swipe again we see the sleep and sports menu.
Further, if you swipe up, then we get to the quick settings menu. Here you can see the battery level, set up do not disturb mode, find your phone and settings.
In the settings, there is a function to turn the sound on or off, adjust the brightness, QR code, reset and turn off.
The main menu with all the functions is located at the bottom – these are sports modes, heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen level, messages, weather, shooting, music player, find phone, breathing, timer, and settings.
The smartwatch offers eight different sports modes, including running, walking, and even swimming among others. I also liked the wide functionality of monitoring your health. For example, the heart rate works plausibly and inanimate objects or air does not detect the reading.
As I promised, the functions do not end there, as the manufacturer suggests installing a special application called Da Fit. Through it, you can analyze your body condition and other indicators. For example, steps, heart rate, sleep, pulse, oxygen level, and others.
In the application settings, you can find functions such as watch faces, notifications, alarms, more, and software updates. In the more tab, you can choose from many different languages, including English and others.
Battery and battery life
Another nice bonus is the rather large 200mAh battery capacity. Thanks to it, the Corn WB01 watch can work up to two weeks.
This is a solid indicator of modern smartwatches. They can easily compare even with popular bracelets from Xiaomi, namely Mi Band 5.
The charging time through the magnetic docking station does not exceed 1.5 hours.
Conclusion, reviews, pros, and cons
Corn WB01 is a very simple smartwatch with a minimalist style. I can refer to the main features of the watch – it is a rather bright and rich screen, great functionality, a convenient application with a large number of different dials.
I also really liked the build quality and the materials used. Full metal body with 2.5D glass – it gets an amazing combination.
In addition, the battery life on a single charge is about two weeks – this is a decent indicator that completely satisfies me.
Given my low price tag, I cannot single out the negative aspects, since they are completely absent.
Price and where to buy cheaper?
If you are interested in the Corn WB01 smartwatch, then the price of $21.99 with a 37% discount will pleasantly surprise you.
I can definitely recommend the watch from Corn for purchase, as it has a low cost and a good combination of technical specs.
