As a preamble to this test
Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Few 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 M3 compatible with healthy use?
For several years now, Aubess has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The M3 may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
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.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Interesting for everyday life?
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the M3 test shows.
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.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.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.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what M3 can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
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
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new 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.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
M3, the right choice for the right use
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.
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
