Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring

In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

For several years now, Yonmig 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 YM-205L has a low score for healthy use.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Yonmig decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.Menus and features are less easy to find.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.A useful device when you want to keep track of the calories burned during the day.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

Interesting for everyday life?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this YM-205L now.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.This watch informs you and gives advice.
It is equipped with a medium battery, 210 mAh.
As for the autonomy, Yonmig considers that it will last 10 hours.
This model comes standard with GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

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 YM-205L is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
With a battery power of 210 mAh, it is in the middle of its category.
It includes GPS tracking.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another advantage of Yonmig watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.

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

A connected watch with which applications

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With an average screen size of 1.3 inches, the information is readable.Finally, its 210 mAh battery is in the average.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 a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
