Analysis and handling of the LS05 from Haylou.

In presentation

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 :
– Its daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

A watch connected for health

For several years now, Haylou has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The LS05 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this LS05 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the LS05, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.It’s almost to an essential element in everyday life.
It is one of the best battery-powered watches, with 340 mAh.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Not on this watch.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.It’s an easy watch to wear.Indeed, it is only 54 gr; that is to say, what is lighter.
This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Haylourtunity to listen to music on this model.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the LS05 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.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 54 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
It has a very good autonomy with a battery power of 340 mAh.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

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

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.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.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 54 grams.
On the battery side, with its 340 mAh, it is very powerful.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

What about the LS05?

The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its daily use
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
