Analysis and handling of the OKVF042877_PU from Cokil.

And to begin with…

Connected watches have become powerful. There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its daily use
– 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.

The watch that tells you about your health?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The design of the OKVF042877_PU is impeccable.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.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.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
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.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

Interesting for everyday life?

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the OKVF042877_PU test shows.
The model designed by Cokil offers an entry-level product.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
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.
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.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Last point about the features; this is the music function.The function is not available here.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

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.We explain what OKVF042877_PU can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

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.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
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.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

OKVF042877_PU, the right choice for the right use

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.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
