After the much revered Cookoo Watch, ConnecteDevice has launched another smartwatch, which aims to attract a younger generation and to offer an alternative to Swatch with smartphone notification features. The new product, Cogito Pop, has a more casual, sporty design with basic notification features such as call alerts, social notifications, reminders and low battery alerts, too.
The one I got, a Cogito Pop Black Mamba, sports an all black design with silver crown and feature switches.
Its watch face and dial are all black with dark gray brand logo mark, hour mark, minute hand and second hand. Unfortunately, the watch does not have a feature or switch to light up the watch face to see the time in pitch black. That may be a bit of an issue for some as it would require you to get into a place with better illumination just to see the time.
The watch has 4 LED icons, which light up when there’s a notification on your phone. The LED icons are as follows: Text/Messaging, Email, Social Network and Info/Alert.
Apart from the aforementioned notification features, Cogito Pop may also be used as a remote for music, camera and finding your phone. Yeah, you’ve probably seen all these on the video above.
The smartwatch has a rotating bezel ring, because it may be used as a countdown timer. If you wish to use this as a countdown timer, place the zero marker with the minutes hand at a start of an event. The zero mark will serve as your reference of the event’s start time. But why did ConnecteDevice include a rotating bezel ring on Cogito Pop? Because you may use it on any sports event – yes, even swimming.
Cogito Pop is engineered to follow active users, especially in situations when the phone cannot be in your hands. With enhanced water resistance up to 10 ATM, the watch safely alerts you to calls and messages even in wet situations: under the shower, in the rain, on the beach and at the pool. At 10 ATM, you can take the Cogito Pop with you even at shallow snorkling or skin diving.
