Analysis and handling of the X9-Rosa from Meritsoar.

As a preamble to this test

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.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.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The X9-Rosa, the right one for healthy use?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The X9-Rosa may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on PropriƩtaire or Apple.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.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.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The X9-Rosa unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Dedicated for everyday use

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the X9-Rosa test shows.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
It is one of the models with a high-performance battery, 400 mAh, among the best.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.You will have to choose another watch for this.

Meritsoar’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

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 X9-Rosa is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
It has an excellent autonomy, thanks to its 400 mAh battery.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
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.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The watch and possible applications

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
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.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
The power of its battery – 400 mAh – is the best today.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

In short, The X9-Rosa, the right choice?

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its daily use
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
