The watch that tells you about your health?
For several years now, Naixues 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.
The design of the A4 is impeccable.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this A4 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.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this A4.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
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.There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
A connected and practical watch
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the A4, this is what you can expect.
The model designed by Naixues offers an entry-level product.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
The thing that will be missing is the battery power, which with its 180 mAh could have been better.
And yet the manufacturer indicates 15 hours of autonomy.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Not on this watch.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
An indispensable feature of this watch is wireless charging.You put it on its stand, and it charges.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
One last point about the features of this watch is the music function.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.
A connected watch 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.Is A4 a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
It is one of the watches with the lowest battery life of 180 mAh.
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 watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another advantage of Naixues watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.
The right choice for downloading applications?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
The screen is not very pleasant to read; mainly because of its small size of 1.28 inches.The power of its battery – 180 mAh – is the worst thing about today.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
The A4 in conclusion
