Analysis and handling of the Y20B from Lige.

In a few words

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected. 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 :
– Screen size
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough 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.

A watch connected for health

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The Y20B is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Lige decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.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.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
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.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

Interesting for everyday life?

Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the Y20B test shows.
The model designed by Lige offers an entry-level product.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Lige didn’t see fit to install it.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
Lige opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.This watch is very comfortable to wear.Its weight is very low, 85 grams, less than on comparable models.
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.That wasn’t planned here.

A connected watch for sports

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 relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the Y20B 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.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 85 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of 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.
The presence of the SIM in this watch makes 3G connection possible.This will allow you to retrieve your alerts that initially arrive on your smartphone.

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?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.4 inches.With a contained weight of 85 grams, you’ll forget you’re wearing it on your wrist.
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.

Finally, The Y20B…

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Screen size
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
