And to begin with…
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Its health-oriented functionalities|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Its daily use|
|– Not enough sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.
Is the G20-EU compatible with healthy use?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Agptek’s G20-EU offers its latest high-end model.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this G20-EU.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
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 smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
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.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
A connected and practical watch
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the G20-EU, this is what you can expect.
Agptek has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.She’s a long way from Apple Watch.
With only 170 mAh, this watch is equipped with one of the least powerful batteries.
And yet the manufacturer indicates 10 hours of autonomy.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.Indeed, it is only 45 gr; that is to say, what is lighter.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The function is not available here.
Agptek’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Here’s the G20-EU detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
With its weight of 45 grams, it is still one of the heaviest watches.
It is one of the watches with the lowest battery life of 170 mAh.
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.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
A connected watch with which 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.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
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.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.It is one of the lightest watches – 45 grams.
On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 170 mAh of power.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
Finally, The G20-EU…
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Its weight/size
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
