A watch connected for health
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
From this point of view, the a62 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.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
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 even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
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?
Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the a62 test shows.
Through this model, Yamay offers an interesting product.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
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.
Yamay opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.This a62 is equipped with the NFC function; quick and easy to use.You will be able to make your purchases by pointing your watch at the payment device in the stores.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.
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.We explain what a62 can do for you.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
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.
Is it suitable for all needs?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not well placed in terms of 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.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
The a62 in conclusion
As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
