Analysis and handling of the magicwatch 2 from Honor.

Foreword

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.

The highlights of this connected watch are :
– Screen size
– 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

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

Is the magicwatch 2 compatible with healthy use?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Following our tests, this magicwatch 2 has a low score for healthy use.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Honor decided to use his own portable operating system.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.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this magicwatch 2 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the magicwatch 2, this is what you can expect.
As far as everyday life is concerned, Fossil allows this model to be at the top of the rankings.It integrates quickly and easily into your daily life.
Fossil says the device will last about 14 days.
This model comes standard with GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
Honor opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
An indispensable feature of this watch is wireless charging.You place it close to the stand and load it.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
One last point about the features of this watch is the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

Honor’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a product with many advantages.Is magicwatch 2 a new electronic gadget?
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
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.
The altimeter function will be useful for those who want to analyse their performance in mountain sports.

A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.

The right model to install applications?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not well placed in terms of 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.
Thanks to the large screen size of 1.8 inches, it is no problem to analyze the data displayed.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.

The magicwatch 2 – in a nutshell

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
