And to begin with…
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Screen size|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– Few sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
Because it’s important to think twice before buying this type of product, this article will help you see things more clearly.
The perfect watch for health monitoring?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The AM-01 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Aimiuvei decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A useful device when you want to keep track of the calories burned during the day.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
Dedicated for everyday use
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this AM-01 now.
Through this model, Aimiuvei offers an interesting product.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.It’s a stylish and contemporary watch.Indeed, it is only 74 gr; that is to say, what is lighter.
The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The smartwatch designed for sports
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.We explain what AM-01 can do for you.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 74 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The right choice for downloading applications?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.57 inches.It is one of the lightest watches – 74 grams.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
What about the AM-01?
As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Screen size
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
