In this brief review, I will talk about the next generation of smartwatches from CORN. I have previously tested the CORN WB01 model, today we will talk about the updated generation CORN WB05.
In this article, I will find out what colossal changes the new generation has received and determined whether it is worth buying an updated version if you already have a WB01 model.
CORN WB05: Specifications
|Screen:||1.2 inch IPS screen with 390 by 390 pixels|
|Sensor:||Heart-rate monitor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer|
|IP standart:||IP67 waterproof|
|Standby time:||up to 30 days|
|Size:||42 x 42 x 12.8 mm|
Of course, many of you might be thinking that the CORN brand is a little-known and unpopular manufacturer that nothing is known about. But after a full review of the CORN WB01 model, I can only draw positive conclusions and hope that the updated generation will be no worse.
First of all, the main change in the CORN WB05 model before WB01 is the updated screen matrix. Now smartwatch has received an AMOLED matrix with good and rich colors.
In addition, the device received a 1.2-inch screen size with a resolution of 390 x 390 pixels. At the same time, the pixel density is very high. Therefore, I cannot worry about the quality of the screen, here it is at an excellent level, considering its insignificant cost.
On the face of the watch, you can see around the protective glass with a rounded rim. The rest of the entire body is made of metal alloy. Weighing about 50 grams, the watch fits perfectly in the hand and it is a pleasure to walk with it.
The manufacturer offers three different color options – pink, blue, and black. Therefore, these colors are suitable for both women and men.
On the right side, there is one mechanical button, which is responsible for turning on the screen. But the main control is through the touch screen.
It is worth noting that CORN smartwatches have received IP67 water protection. Thus, you cannot completely wet the watch underwater, but small splashes or rain will not break the watch.
On the back of the case are the contacts for charging, a heart rate sensor, and a hole for the microphone and speaker. That is, even in an inexpensive smartwatch, you will be able to answer important calls via Bluetooth 5.0 via your wrist. Not many budget models can boast of this feature.
For the rest of the functionality, everything is standard here, like most fitness watches. But I would like to note that the CORN WB05 smartwatch received 15 different watch faces. The device also has 8 different sports modes. The watch can control music, receive notifications, and many other useful functions.
Another important feature is the increased battery capacity of 340 mAh. The manufacturer promises a battery life of about one month, and standby time up to 90 days. The real practice has shown about 3 weeks of using smartwatches on a single charge. Another interesting solution worth mentioning is wireless charging via a docking station.
Given a large number of positive aspects, I can definitely recommend buying the new generation CORN WB05 smartwatch.
Currently, you can buy CORN WB05 at a low and attractive price for only $39.99. If you use the CORNWBO5 coupon, then you can get a watch for $0.99, but only one pair per day from 24 to 28 Aug.
