Aukey’s smartwatch offers heart monitoring, a notification system, sleep monitoring and everything one would expect from a low-cost wearable device.
We promised you the review of Aukey’s smartwatch, offered at a truly attractive price and equipped with all the most useful features to always have on your wrist, and finally today we discover it in every detail.
Design: simple and essential
The design of this smartwatch is very simple and essential. Square lines, thin and light form factor, strap interchangeable 20mm and a single physical control button. Nothing particularly distinctive, mind you, but for this price, a sophisticated design is not expected. The dimensions are as follows: 48 x 36 x 12 mm with a weight of 38 grams.
Screen: the Aukey smartwatch and the TFT display
The display of this 1.4 ″ smartwatch is very resolute (320p), offers a very responsive touch screen and guarantees a enjoyable reading of the data contained within it. The colors are bright and pleasant and provide clear feedback on various physical activity tracking and heart rate monitoring data. There backlightfinally, it is generous and offers everything you need for easy consultation even under sunlight.
Hardware: the essentials at the right price
Again, nothing fancy, but the right package of functionality which help the user on a daily basis.
The technical sheet is composed as follows:
- Bluetooth 5.0
- Heart rate monitoring sensor
- IP68 waterproof
All that is needed, therefore, to monitor physical activity and heart rate conditions. Everything works with good accuracy, although sometimes the steps are slightly overestimated. The heartbeat is measured more accurately than would be expected from the list price.
Connectivity: Aukey’s smartwatch only goes with Bluetooth
The presence of the Bluetooth 5.0, capable of offering a solid and stable signal with the paired smartphone. Unfortunately we stop here because on this smartwatch we do not find any type of GPS, WiFi or Cellular connectivity; features usually dedicated to much more expensive products.
Software: interface to be reviewed but excellent detail
The interface is full of screenshots and takes a few minutes of total attention to digest, along with gestures. Unfortunately, the Italian translation is not yet very precise and some buttons do not have a capital letter – minor defects but not for those who are an esthete.
In any case, the data provided is very full-bodied, full of details and offer everything needed to help the user with the monitoring of his daily activity. The sports supported are 12 and cover most of the needs:
- Work out
- Corsa indoor
The sleep monitoring it is quite precise and, combined with the sedentary reminder during the day, stimulates a more correct habit of activity and rest.
The smartphone app is also nice and offers one wide range of details and customization options. I would have preferred a few more dials or, at least, a store to download others but it is not certain that there will be no updates from this point of view in the future.
For the correct functioning of the Aukey Fit app, iOS 10.0 or later or Android 4.4 or later is required.
Audio not received but effective vibration
There are no speakers or microphones on this Aukey LS02 so it is practically impossible to set sound alerts or alarms. All this is compensated for by a good and valid vibration but clearly it is a point to take into consideration.
Battery: it comes to two weeks!
The battery lasts approximately 10-15 days based on the uses and amount of tracked workouts and heart rate monitoring. In the most basic cases, it even reaches 18 days. Charging takes place fairly quickly, considering the battery capacity of 260mAh, and via a proprietary cable supplied in the package.
Price and conclusion: is Aukey’s smartwatch worth the money?
Aukey’s smartwatch is offered at a price of € 39.99 even if today there is a coupon that offers € 10 savings – you can find it on the official product page on Amazon. This device, therefore, offers everything you need for a valid daily measurement of steps, activity, sleep and heart rate, a notification reception system and good autonomy.
Difficult to ask for more at this price even if some competitors may give it a hard time. At the discounted price, however, we would consider it one of the best solutions under € 30.
A very valid product if we consider its price range. It is concrete, has few unnecessary frills and offers everything you need on a daily basis. The list price is probably slightly higher than it should, but the promotions make it much more attractive.
