A watch connected for health
For several years now, Cokil has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Cokil’s CORF0 offers its latest high-end model.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this CORF0 is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.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.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health 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.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
The right choice every day?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the CORF0 test shows.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.She’s a long way from Apple Watch.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
Cokil opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Cokilrtunity 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 connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.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 CORF0 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.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.
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.
The right choice for downloading applications?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.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.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
The screen is not very pleasant to read; mainly because of its small size of 0.96 inches.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
The CORF0 – in a nutshell
