  • 1.69-inch screen 240*280 resolution
  • 8 Sport Modes
  • 190mAh Long Battery Life

Design and Build Quality:

The COLMI P8 Plus smartwatch features a modern and elegant design that is somewhat similar to the Apple Watch with slight differences from the COLMI P8. It’s designed in a rectangular shape with a curved screen on the sides, and a rotatable button works to change the faces of the watch or to return and even used to zoom in and out. Plus elegant and light on the wrist thanks to a thin metal frame with good build quality.


if you look from below you find a plastic with charging pins and a sensor. Although it’s a budget smartwatch, you will notice the manufacturing quality is high and even the Apple-inspired design was amazing.


The strap on the P8 Plus smartwatch is made of silicone, lightweight and comfortable on your wrist for long-lasting use. You can use any 20 mm belt because its removable and is available in four main colors, Black, Pink, Blue, and Gold, but you can purchase colored and other shapes straps separately.


Display Screen:

The screen in COLMI P8 Plus is my favorite type, its a large 1.69 inch IPS screen, and 2.5D curved to display better content and details, and because it has a resolution of 240 * 280 pixels, the resolution is normal, but it’s better than some models at the same price, however, sharpness Colors are so good even when you wear them in the sunlight you won’t be alarmed by them.


In fact, the reason to make this type of screen my favorite, because this screen is large and takes over most of the interface, and with narrow sides, and this is only found in smartwatches with higher costs. This is in contrast to other inexpensive smartwatches that contain a touch screen, which comes in the middle of the screen and has rather wide sides, such as the COLMI P8, which had a smaller screen size and was in the middle of the body.


Watch faces:

COLMI P8 Plus has some different pre-installed watch faces, and you can switch between them easily by rotating the button or via the Da Fit app which has over 100 additional watch faces with customization capabilities for a variety of colors, retro, analog, and digital faces available or You can even use your own photos as a watch face background.


COLMI P8 Plus is a IP67 waterproof smartwatch, which means you can wear it while washing hands or on rainy days, although the watch is not approved for swimming but its good for wearing for activities, so, I do not recommend swimming or exposing it to hot water or salt water to avoid any harm Long or short term. Its preferable to dry the watch after immersing it in water and before operating it, so that it stays with you for as long as possible.

Under the hood:

COLMI P8 Plus adopts the built-in GR5515 chip for faster response speed and faster data processing, and it is backed by 64KB RAM and 64MB ROM so that the watch can be equipped with more watch faces and language packs, for your health, this device has a heart rate sensor The HRS3300 Heart and G-sensor, so this wearable device manages your movement in every moment and takes good care of you throughout the day.


Also, with Bluetooth 5.1 technology, it makes the watch with low power consumption and more stable connection. This version is compatible with Android 4.4 and later or iOS 9.0 and above so that the connection is through the Da Fit app.

However, it does not have its own GPS sensor, which means that you will always have to use it with a smartphone to get your location.

Although it has a good sensor HRS3300 that is more accurate than other sensors, this does not mean that the measurements provided by this smartwatch are completely accurate, as most of them are largely unreliable because it’s not a medical instrument, but it makes you very aware of your health and physical performance. unfortunately, this is often the case with watches in this price range.

COLMI P8 Plus is compatible with Da Fit app for Android and iOS to help you set up and use the watch more efficiently.
