As a preamble to this test
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary? There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– 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.
The perfect watch for health monitoring?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The K06 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.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 sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
Dedicated for everyday use
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the K06 could do for you.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Not on this watch.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
Tipmant opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.It’s an easy watch to wear.It is one of the lightest (72 grams) in this range.
This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.
The smartwatch designed 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.And as far as the K06 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 72 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
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.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The Tipmant watch: a good choice to be connected?
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.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
It belongs to the category of lightweight smartwatches: 72 grams.
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 K06?
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
