Health follow-up question, what is the ETX001 worth?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Our tests have shown that the ETX001 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.

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.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

This model does not have GPS.Edtouch didn’t see fit to install it.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.

The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

The smartwatch designed for sports

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.And as far as the ETX001 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.

Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.

One of the interesting features of this watch is the possibility to listen to music.

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.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.Only those installed by default are available.
It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 62 grams.
