What is MIL-STD-810H?

MIL-STD-810 is a US military standard that ensures a device can withstand environmental stresses and other specific conditions under which it may face throughout its service life. This is completed by mimicking the impacts those environments will have on the device.

There is a broad range of tests required to determine whether a product meets MIL-STD-810H standards, including how it holds up in high and low temperatures, rain, humidity, fungus, salt frog, sand and dust, shock, etc.

What does 5 ATM water resistant mean?

5 ATM withstands pressures equivalent to around 50 meters, which is a measure of pressure NOT depth. Smartwatches featuring 5 ATM waterproof can be used for shallow-water activities such as swimming, but avoid wearing it while taking hot baths or saunas.

Static pressure test
Place the device into a sink, and gradually increase the water pressure for 10 minutes until it reaches the level equal to the atmospheric air pressure of 5 bar.
Dynamic pressure test
Place the device into a sink, after which use a mechanical arm or other tools to simulate user movement while swimming, diving, etc. In the meantime, check whether the device works normally regarding button response time, screen display, and so on.

What is IP69K?

IP69K tops the rating on the ingress protection (IP) scale that rates a product based on its ability to withstand the intrusion of solids and liquids, alongside intensive cleaning with high-pressure, high-temperature jets. IP69K-rated smartwatches are superbly dustproof in practice and resistant to rigorous daily washdown.

What is Internal Reliability Tests?

Before sending every piece of KOSPET product to our customers, we ensure that it has passed as many as 28 reliability tests conducted in our own laboratory to meet the exacting standards.

Here are some of the internal reliability tests to provide further insights into the quality standards of KOSPET products.

  • Once the test is over, repeat it with the battery cover facing up to test the built-in battery of the smartwatch, whose appearance and function should meet the requirements.
Button Lifespan Test

With the smartwatch powered on, press its power button 200,000 times and the rest of buttons 100,000 times, with a speed of 40~60 times/min.
