Lokmat Time has been producing smartwatches with interesting features for a long time. And I have never been able to test any of its models. But this is only until today because today I will tell you about a rather exciting model called the Lokmat Time Comet 3.
The first thing that stands out about smartwatches is their wide functionality. For example, onboard the watch, there is a Bluetooth call function and even built-in 128 MB of memory for music. But first, let me share with you a cost that will surprise you as well as me.
The price tag at the time of writing this review for the Comet 3 smartwatch was only $44. And trust me, to get those features that are available on the new smartwatch from Lokmat Time, you will need to pay more than $100 or more.
So, I got you a little interested, right? In addition, the device received a large 1.3-inch touchscreen with a good resolution. Also, the body is made of metal and the battery life was about one week of work without recharging.
Thus, I propose to find out what the new smartwatch model is really capable of. And is it really as good as the manufacturer advertises?

Unboxing and packaging
The smartwatches from the Lokmat Time company are delivered in the simplest and most outstanding packaging. The front side of the box has a picture with the model name, but on the back of the package, there is a list of icons with the main features in Chinese and English.
Inside the package itself, I found the following components, such as instructions for use with different languages. Also included in the package is a separate watch case. A detachable silicone strap and a four-pin magnetic charging cable are located in a separate box.
Despite its low cost, I cannot say that the package bundle is weak and has strong flaws. Quite the opposite, the quality of the box was made of thick cardboard and inside the watch lies in a soft shockproof material. Ok, now let’s find out how well the watch is assembled and from what materials.
Design, build quality, and materials used
First of all, the Lokmat Time Comet 3 is a standard smartwatch, both in size and appearance. But the interesting combination of the metal case and buttons gives the watch a really good look and the build quality.
Yes, you definitely can’t argue here, since the assembly of the new model of smartwatches from the Lokmat Time brand is very high. In addition, the buttons are very smooth and responsive. At the same time, I did not find any extraneous squeaks or sounds during my testing.
Although the watch case is not entirely made of metal, the back of the device uses matte plastic in its construction. On the same side, you can see a four-pin heart rate sensor.
As I have already said, there are two buttons on the body – this is the power button and the back button. An interesting feature that gives the look a bit youthful and sporty is the presence of a red bezel around the top button.
There is a microphone hole on the left side of the smartwatch case. Meanwhile, a speaker for calls or music is located at the bottom. Yes, it may not be the loudest, but I’m glad that it makes sense to live at all.
But on the front of the Lokmat Time Comet 3 watch, a 1.28-inch color touch screen was installed. Its resolution is 240 x 240 pixels and is quite bright for a budget smartwatch. In addition, I was comfortable using the screen even in bright sunlight. In general, given its low cost, I was completely satisfied with the quality of the display.
If we talk about the strap, then initially it comes out of the box from a silicone material. The strap is 22 mm wide and as you might have guessed it is removable. Therefore, you will not have problems with replacing it with any other option, for example, with a leather or similar silicone strap.
In terms of convenience, I also did not have strong discomfort. The Comet 3 smartwatch received a rather small size of 47 x 47 x 12.1 mm. In this case, the weight of the watch was 62 grams, taking into account the weight of the strap. During my testing, the watch was perfect for my non-fat wrist. Okay, I talked about the appearance of everything, now let’s find out the main functions and how they work in real life.
Functions, features, and mobile app
Before talking about all the features, I had to install an app on my smartphone to activate them. To do this, I scanned the QR code on the smartwatch screen and downloaded the application. Alternatively, you can download the H Band app directly from the app store on your smartphone.
After a successful installation, I easily paired the watch with the app. Now I have every opportunity to tell you about the functions and main features of the new Lokmat Time Comet 3 watch.
The home screen of the smartwatch offers a good selection of different watch faces. By design, these are quite good watch faces that display quite informative information. In total, I counted 4 types of watch faces, but you are also able to download even more watch faces through the mobile application.
If you swipe down from the home screen, you can see the familiar quick settings menu. For example, there are icons for such features as finding a smartphone, alarm clock, do not disturb mode, and others.
If we swipe in the opposite direction, that is, to the top of the main screen, we will be able to watch the music player. And here I would stop a little more in detail since this is not the most ordinary player that controls music on your smartphone.
Remember I said that the device got 128 MB of free memory? So, you are able to download music through the supplied cable and listen to music through the main speaker or through wireless earbuds. This feature works completely correctly and I did not find any problems with its use.
If you swipe to the left of the watch home screen, you can see some useful widgets. For example, these are blood pressure, heart rate, sleep, and daily activity.
To get to the main menu with all the features, you must press the bottom button. Then you will be taken to the section of all applications. Here I managed to find features such as sports modes, steps, sleep, heart rate, blood pressure, calls, contacts, call history, notifications, alarm, stopwatch, timer, music player, find a smartphone, women’s health, camera control, and settings.
There are a number of other useful features in the settings section. For example, you are able to change the brightness of the screen, but there is no automatic brightness adjustment function. You can also customize the auto power-off time, activation of various functions, choice of watch faces, message management, and device information.
Okay, now let’s talk about the most important feature in the Lokmat Time Comet 3 smartwatch. Naturally, this function is called Bluetooth calls. It only works with a connected smartphone via a mobile app. As my practice has shown, I could easily make calls, but also receive calls. The signal quality was good, and the interlocutors heard me well.
The H Band mobile app offers a familiar list of settings and features. For example, you will be able to observe and analyze your activity. This can be steps, distance, calories, heart rate, sleep, and others. Also, through the application, you are able to set many different styles of watch faces. I counted over 20 different types of watch faces. In addition, there is a familiar list of settings, such as managing notifications, remembering, and others.
Battery and run time
Although the battery capacity is not the largest, which was only 230 mAh, the battery life on a full charge got a very good value. During my testing, the Lokmat Time Comet 3 lasted for one week.
This is really not a bad result, given the great functionality of the features and functions. Therefore, for most users, this runtime will be enough.
If we talk about charging time, then through the four-pin connection, the watch was charged in just 2 hours.
Conclusion, reviews, pros, and cons
After fully testing the Lokmat Time Comet 3 smartwatch, I have only positive impressions.
Among the advantages, I can single out such features as a wide functionality of various functions. That is, the device has received a Bluetooth call function or control of a music player with built-in memory.
Also, the watch was well assembled and used a fairly good quality of materials in its performance. Other than that, I liked the way the user interface works and how all the features work. Another positive aspect is the battery life.
But although there are drawbacks, they are very insignificant. And given its low cost, the watch is definitely capable of surprising any user.
Price and where to buy cheaper?
Currently, the price tag for the Lokmat Time Comet 3 smartwatch is only $43.99 with a 30% discount.
Thus, knowing all the features and disadvantages, I can easily recommend the watch for purchase, since it will be very problematic to find a more or less similar device.
