The watch that tells you about your health?
For several years now, Aimiuvei 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 A4-01 has a low score for healthy use.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this A4-01 is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
Dedicated for everyday use
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the A4-01, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
This model comes standard with GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
Aimiuvei opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.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.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
The watch to improve physical performance?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what A4-01 can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
Is it suitable for all needs?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
Finally, The A4-01…
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
