As other play­ers in the smart­watch space el­bow one an­other out of the way to pack the most into those tiny cases, the Cog­ito Orig­i­nal has pretty much stuck with its orig­i­nal premise: A Blue­tooth­con­nected de­vice you wear on your wrist that’s an ex­ten­sion of your phone. You can con­ve­niently screen your calls with in­com­ing caller de­tail on a clas­sic watch face and choose to an­swer or dis­miss.

What sets the Cog­ito Orig­i­nal, and it’s spin-off prod­ucts, the Cog­ito Pop and Cog­ito Fit, apart from the oth­ers is its power source. No plug-in in­duc­tive charg­ing cra­dles and search for the AC out­let here; this watch runs on a stan­dard but­ton bat­tery that’s user re­place­able. And, ac­cord­ing to the lit­er­a­ture, that should need to hap­pen only about once a year.

phys­i­cal move­ment to your phone where an app dis­plays your ac­tiv­ity and the num­ber of The Orig­i­nal is avail­able in a va­ri­ety of colors with ei­ther sil­i­con, ny­lon or leather bands, or fewer func­tions at a lower price point, and comes in brighter, less tra­di­tional color com­bi­na­tions.
