The YIN, the right one for healthy use?
For several years now, Grde has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.From this point of view, the YIN is a good choice.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.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.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
Interesting for everyday life?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the YIN test shows.
As far as everyday life is concerned, Fossil allows this model to be at the top of the rankings.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
The battery power is not the best, 210 mAh, corresponding to an average power.
The manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 0 hours.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
We appreciated the wireless charging function.You no longer need to plug in a cable to charge it.
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.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
Grde’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.And as far as the YIN is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
The battery is in the average range with a power of 210 mAh.
It includes GPS tracking.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.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.
The right choice for downloading applications?
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not really designed to install 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 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.It has a 210 mAh battery with sufficient power.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
Finally, The YIN…
Among all the watches connected, this model is close to the best value for money.Well designed, the YIN will suit many users.
In a few words, the reasons why it ranks among the top models:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
