And to begin with…
Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– 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.
Is the MXS-14 compatible with healthy use?
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Our tests have shown that the MXS-14 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this MXS-14 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
A connected and practical watch
Do you need a smart watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.This is precisely what the MXS-14 test shows.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.This watch informs you and gives advice.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.So you can safely swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Jinpxrtunity 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?
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.Here’s the MXS-14 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.
The right model to install applications?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
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 MXS-14…
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.
