I don't really have a chance to test battery life thoroughly regularly. I just review so many different watches all the time, but this one I got to tell you: it's, got the feel of being at least twice as long of a life as the standard. Android watches we've reviewed in the past. Yet when we did measurements in a previous review, it's, not that much bigger it's about the same thickness overall it's about the same diameter, so what's the magic that's making. This thing work with a twelve hundred and sixty milliamp hour battery is claimed by the specs by the way, if you're interested in this one pick it up from gearbest using the show notes down below and also check in the show notes of any of the videos. You'Re interested in we're coming up to the holiday buying season and they're, giving me precious links to give you guys to go in and shop for just about anything. You want at 11.11 that's their special day in China, the 1111 shopping spree, of course Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and all of those things coming up toward the holidays, good time to be picking these things up, and it really really helps us out if you're looking At buying any of this tech, if you use the links we have here to get started all right enough of the advertisement right let's talk about this. What I'm gon na do – and I don't really want to go too far, because I mean this is a precious little watch.
I am going to turn it off we're running at about sixty fifty eight percent right now, we're gon na turn it off and open up the back case and see how far we can get in there to take a look at this battery and see if it's Designed differently than the others in the tear downs that we've done, okay, so let's power down the bottom buttons, the one that's. In effect, you know I really wish on these. They would make these so they're programmable and you could press and hold and it would launch whatever program you assign to it that's a request I've put in and I'll verbalize it out to the masses right now. Let'S get that this is in ineffective to have a non functional button. That does nothing, of course, if you're into something a tiny press will bring it back, but long press does nothing. We got a long press, the top button power down from here and that'll shut. It off, while it's doing that we're gon na remove the band's so it's going to be easier to work with the watch. You can see. I'Ve got my variety of instruments in front of me, most importantly, is a t4 type of screwdriver. Can you see the tip on that got a flashlight and a couple of other things to pry into it if we need to oh yeah and if I drift off screen yell at me, okay to come back because I'm gon na be looking at the watch through This so I can really try to see what's going on.
I try to estimate where the center of the camera is, but oh well, hopefully, I'll keep it on screen for you. Here we go we're gon na undo. These get a good start on them. You notice I'm, not taking off the back here. Theoretically, it should just be a part of the overall full back, so it should come off right along with it when this whole that comes off. Okay, now that I've loosened them all I'm gon na twist them. Until I really know that they're off, I think that one already is okay, that way they don't go flying on me, which they always do anyway. I can see that one's off now let's see if we can find a hook in here, that's my fingernail, to get it up: Wow, okay, okay, what I'm gon na do is take the screws out individually because when they go flying, if the back pops it's gon Na go crazy. I should have put them in a square to match up with the holes that they go into just so that if there's any threading issues you don't wind up cross, threading or something. But as you can see, I didn't do that. Okay, it's not releasing, but you can see where it should be all up along the edges: yeah that's it the four screws. Okay: here we go there there it's snap, all right. The battery is right on the top, but look there's a ribbon cable attached to this whole back unit.
Here, Wow Wow and there's a I guess: that's a little vibration motor right there, the magnetic the magnets for the magnetic charging cable – maybe no, I don't know the speaker's right there, the chargers down on this end and that's all sitting in here. I don't know what those two things are, but there's two of them on that side too. So there's you see that down in there there's four of those little things then there's an insulation plate, and here is the mega battery. That thing is huge: yeah, it's it's much thicker than what we're used to it looks like now. Without doing any damage, can this come off down there, the ribbon cable, no, it can it's secured underneath and the battery itself. Doesn'T have a lot of play to it. Let'S come on this side. Ah, there there it was just stuck a little bit: okay, there's a ribbon cable to the battery notice, it's, fully wrapped and no markings on it whatsoever. This is the unique proprietary I guess battery. It goes through a ribbon cable down underneath there that slides, underneath the case and or inside of it so it's not easy to just disconnect the battery and take it out and on this end, it's attached inside the connecting aspect of the battery so that's. As far as I'm gon na go with it here's some markings yld, can you read that C, GF, 2, 2, 1, 4, 9 B, another ribbon cable there, and then it gets into the circuitry of the watch.
What I am gon na do off camera, though, is take some measurements of this battery, so you guys know how big it is also the way it's packed in here. As you know, sometimes these batteries will start to swell and it looks like it's got a little bit of swell space and it's floating nicely in the middle there, so that if it were to expand a little bit, not a lot but a little bit, it probably Could do that without applying too much pressure inside of the Watts. So I like that design as well when they're sandwiched in between the different boards, the motherboard and other boards below, and they start to expand. They create all kinds of havoc and you get a dead watch pretty quick, but this one's thick it's definitely thicker than normal, and I think that's, where the extra milliamps are coming from I'll be back with the measurements. There. You go alright, the battery for the COS pet prime lengthwise, the longest direction, measures 36, millimeters, 29 millimeters wide and just at seven and a half millimeters thick floating in a little compartment here right above the innards of the watch, but below the overall case, and I Presume if you needed a little more thickness, you could always make the case just a tiny bit thicker to accommodate, which may be what they actually did to get this large of a battery in the watch. But that, hopefully, is the wave of the future, because this watch amongst all of them does have the best battery life.
In other reviews of it check the show notes because I'm putting in the show notes or the comments and other viewers are as well putting some actual battery life numbers in there, but heavy load, heavy heavy load, installing apps doing GPS cycling and using it regularly. I got a full 24 of 25 hours out of it and still had 11 left there's. One reading for you so lighter load than that should be a little longer battery life and, of course, just using it as a watch would give you a lot of life as well k. Oh, oh, oh one more thing I may have showed you this in other videos, but I know you guys. Don'T watch all the videos, so I want to show you this. Okay, I've put it all back together again and turned it on, because what I want to show you I need to have it on and on the internet, so I'm connected to Wi Fi, you guys own an Android watch, any Android watch all the way back to The beginning, pretty much have you checked the watch face server recently. You know all the way to the end where you hit the little plus sign yeah. I know you were in there a long time ago and you saw maybe 50 different watch faces whoa. What is that ahaha? Something new, not just something new? There are a hundred two hundred three hundred. I have encountered a new watch faces in here now: they're, all sequential they're, all available you just tap it it'll, say it's, downloading and it's.
Now on the watch. We can look at it in a moment. I can scroll and just go through endless lists of them all kind of new ones and and the older ones that you were used to seeing there at the very very end. Now you got some nice digital ones. Here you got some analog ones: colorful ones I'm, not gon na belabor it because it just goes on and on. This is kind of a fun one here, let's download those two and I'll show them to you. But what I recommend, oh, that one's a nice one too, is go grab. Your watch make sure you're on Wi Fi and check out all these new watch faces they're available it's on the server which, as long as your watch when you go in and and scroll through, the thumbnails of your watch faces after pressing and holding and you scroll To the far right, as long as you got, that plus sign and by the way after you put them in just to make sure you should hit that little circle up there, that refreshes the overall memory of the faces and just make sure everything is there here, We just put in that is that first one mm hmm the other little round, one that I said was kind of fun. It'S got some shading some light area down here, good for nighttime. If you want it dim, remember, AMOLED screens use less power when they're displaying black, because each pixel is active and only when it's lit up is it using power there? That is on the server that's available to everybody, but you're, seeing it on the COS pet Prime, and did you catch that air pressure relief point? I think Taco Bell contributed to this because they won the Taco Bell for always having an air pressure relief point when they serve their beans.
