Analysis and handling of the EC-01 from Yenisey.

In presentation

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.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 daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Not enough 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.

Health follow-up question, what is the EC-01 worth?

For several years now, Yenisey has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Following our tests, this EC-01 has a low score for healthy use.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on PropriƩtaire or Apple.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
The EC-01 unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.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.

What are its functions 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 EC-01, this is what you can expect.
Yenisey almost makes a mistake with this model.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
It has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 480 mAh.
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.
Yenisey opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The smartwatch designed for sports

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.We explain what EC-01 can do for you.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Its battery has one of the best autonomies with 480 mAh on the battery.
Also note that this watch does not have 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 works with 3G technology.Mobile connectivity not only provides access to location, but also allows the device to retrieve notifications and alerts from the network to your smartphone.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

A connected watch with which applications

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
Finally, its 480 mAh battery is the best today.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.

The EC-01 in conclusion

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its daily use
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
