A watch connected for health
For several years now, Lidofigo 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 M98 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this M98 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.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.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this M98 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.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 can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
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?How is this useful in your daily life?For the M98, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Lidofigo didn’t see fit to install it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
Lidofigo 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.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
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.Is M98 a new electronic gadget?
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of 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.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
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.
The Lidofigo watch: a good choice to be connected?
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
The M98 in conclusion
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
