Love this Item
Loved this item. Was easy to use and made life simple. Personally it was what I was looking for but it may not be for those looking at extensive interfaces and connectivity. As a busy mum I wanted the basics that kept me up to date and informed without mass confusion and extensive understanding.
This is worst thing I bought paying $89
The first one I had died within a month and Dicksmith replaced with a new one. But the other one also not behaving. Could not pair with my Samsung Galaxy- when the phone says it is connected but the watch has not. The date and time is not correctly displayed.
The manual provided does not even mention how to charge. The charger provided has two pins and the unit has two metallic point at the back. I assumed these are the two points to be connected for charging. No sign whether it is charging or not. I could not even connect to the
DickSmith should discontinue selling such rubbish.
Help cannot connect to my phone
I got this watch as a gift for christmas and have not been able to connect to my phone at all via bluetooth. My phone says its connected to the watch but cannot see anything on the watch and nothing in synced.
I was really excited for this device now i dont even use it because i cant track anything withuot it being connected to my phone :(
Purchased in December 2020 for A$49.00.
Died after 4 months
At first I thought this watch was excellent. After using it on and off I went to bluetooth it to my phone and it blacked out and died. No response even after tried charging. Contacted seller and they happily replaced it.
Great buy for my daughter
Bought it online for less than 50$ and it works really well . The app is good lots of info. The watch measure blood pressure which not even expensive smart watch does .for the kids is great as you can see from the phone app where they are . For the price is more than a great buy

This looks ok but most of the functions advertised doesn't work at all
I have this watch over a some time now, the step count is perfect other than that heart rate monitor is inaccurate. Doesn't measureSpO2 level, Blood pressure. The weather report doesn't sync properly even having though location services are on ( on phone). Brightness is not auto and too low to read at any time or the day outside.
If you are after just cheap but looking OK watch then go for it. Else dont waste your money. you are better off without this.
Kogan Pulse+ Wellbeing SmartWatch good entry level fitness tracker
I purchased the Kogan Pulse+ Wellbeing Smartwatch because it advertised that it could track pulse, blood pressure, track runs, swimming, running and tennis and has Strava integration. The app that supports the watch is not great. I think the support from the author has been removed. The only way I can use it is to sign in as a visitor everytime. The synchronization of the data from the watch to the app is poor as there's no indication that the syncing is occurring. Not all features are visible in the app either. I can't find the sleep tracking and the historic tracking of blood pressure and heart rate don't seem continuous.
Screen is difficult to see in sunlight.
KOGAN ACTIVE + Smart Watch
Purchased for $99
The Watch looks good but what is the use?
Just Unboxed a brand new KOGAN ACTIVE + Smart Watch
Very poor instructions. Does not eves say how to switch the Watch On. Cannot independently set date and time.
The ANDROID App VeryFitPro does on exist in Play Store. Wasted 4 hours to set up.
Kogan help website does not have any additional information, there is no support number to call. I do not have time to followup.
Planning to return the product.
Not sure why KOGAN is wasting everyone's time and money.
Kogan Pulse + Smart Watch DISGRACE
The advertised watch features were very misleading, and software Connect App does not work at all. Impossible to set up the watch. Impossible to get any customer support from Dick Smith or Kogan support. Their web sites sends you around in circles looking for help, seemingly designed to force you to give up, as I have after hours trying. The watch is going in the bin, and we will never go back to Kogan or Dick Smith again, and warn others to avoid these charlatans like the plague.
Can't set Time or Date so this Watch is Useless
DO NOT BUY!!!!
After 4+ hours trying to resolve connectivity issues I am resigned to the fact that this product does not work per the specs provided.
Android Play Store does not carry a "Connect Gear" app.
Alternate instructions on the Kogan product page to use "Hitfit Pro" app also hold no joy.
The Hitfit Pro app installs but its device connection utility cannot find nor display the Kogan Pulse+ watch. This is despite my being able to approve its Bluetooth connection to my Android phone.
Useless and asking for a refund NOT A REPLACEMENT. (Know from prior experience these never work).

Ordered considering cancelling it
So I got an email from Kogan today with the smart watch reduced to $29 which seems like a bargain considering everything you can do but after reading the reviews I am seriously considering just cancelling the purchase seems to be very cheap and probably won't do what it's meant to.
But I'm going to give it a go go I've had other Kogan items in the past and they have been great

So, I bought this watch thinking it will be able to do basic things like check my blood pressure and keep track of my steps and sleep pattern as the ad claimed it would be able to. I was excited and got it under a pre-order special price. After 10 minutes of the watch being fully charged and on my wrist, it just died and would not turn on. I Messaged Kogan, as they don't have anyone you can actually speak to, and they sent me a replacement and told me to dispose of the old one, which I have done. 2 days of wearing the replacement and dealing wi...th its stupid pedometer saying I walked 20km in about an hour, I decided that I would just use it for the blood pressure and sleep pattern monitor. 2 days I got out of it before it shut down and wouldn't turn on. I have jumped back on the Kogan website to lodge a support token again and ask for a refund. As I have noticed, they have dropped the price of this watch by $40, This has to be because of the poor quality and hoping to clear them out with the hope that people won't know how to do a warranty claim. Dont do it to your self, stay away!
