Screen

This is a 1.39” screen with a resolution of 400×400 pixels. As the technology used for the screen is AMOLED, the FINOW X7 provides excellent viewing angles, outstanding color saturation and definition.

Comfort

With such an industrial construction and full stainless steel main body, the FINOW X7 weights 101gr. which makes it a heavier watch than the KOSPET HOPE.

Nonetheless, the FINOW X7 is very comfortable and is also able to remain thinner than the KOSPET HOPE thanks to the slimmer profile.

In addition to this, the hybrid wristband provides the excellent comfort of silicone in contact with the skin but adds the fancy and elegant genuine leather finish on top, combining comfort + style.
