As an introduction to this analysis
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Screen size|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– Its daily use|
|– Not enough sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
Because it’s important to think twice before buying this type of product, this article will help you see things more clearly.
The watch that tells you about your health?
For several years now, Pthtechus has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this Y16-Bleu has a low score for healthy use.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Pthtechus decided to use his own portable operating system.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Dedicated for everyday use
Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the Y16-Bleu test shows.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
This model does not have GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.And as far as the Y16-Bleu 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.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
The 3G function is available on this smartwatch with the presence of the SIM.Mobile connectivity not only provides access to location, but also allows the device to retrieve notifications and alerts from the network to your smartphone.
However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.
The right choice for downloading applications?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.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.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With its large 1.55-inch screen, information is clearly displayed.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
Y16-Bleu, the right choice for the right use
The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here’s the highlight of this connected watch:
– Screen size
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
