The watch that tells you about your health?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The id205u corresponds to the latest generation of watches.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Lifebee decided to use his own portable operating system.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this id205u is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.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.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
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.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Do you need a smart watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the id205u, this is what you can expect.
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.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Lifebee didn’t see fit to install it.
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 tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.
Lifebee’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 product with many advantages.And as far as the id205u is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.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.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
One of the interesting features of this watch is the possibility to listen to music.
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.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.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.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
With a screen size of 1.3 inches, it is in the average.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
What about the id205u?
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.
