Analysis and handling of the BL89 from Teckepic.

To start

Connected watches have become powerful.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 :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its daily use
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.

A watch connected for health

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Teckepic’s BL89 offers its latest high-end model.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

Dedicated for everyday use

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the BL89, this is what you can expect.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Teckepicrtunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the BL89 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another advantage of Teckepic watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

Finally, The BL89…

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
