The A601, the right one for healthy use?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.The design of the A601 is impeccable.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.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.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.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.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Dedicated for everyday use
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the A601 test shows.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
This model does not have GPS.Not on this watch.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, we would have appreciated the Asweertunity to listen to music on this model.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
The right model for analyzing his sports activity?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.Is A601 a new electronic gadget?
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.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The Aswee watch: a good choice to be connected?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
