The watch that tells you about your health?
For several years now, Cokil has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The OKVF0 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This OKVF0 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
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.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Dedicated for everyday use
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.This is precisely what the OKVF0 test shows.
The model designed by Cokil offers an entry-level product.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
The battery has a power of 180 mAh, making it one of the lowest today.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Cokil didn’t see fit to install it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
Cokil opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The right model for analyzing his sports activity?
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the OKVF0 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
One of the weak points of this smartwatch is its autonomy; it is one of the lowest at 180 mAh.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in 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.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The right choice for downloading applications?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
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.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Finally, its 180 mAh battery, due to its lack of power, may require regular recharging.
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.
Finally, The OKVF0…
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
