|– Its health-oriented functionalities|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– 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 1-4, the right one for healthy use?
For several years now, Linchm has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Linchm’s 1-4 offers its latest high-end model.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
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.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this 1-4 now.
Linchm has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, we would have appreciated the Linchmrtunity to listen to music on this model.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
A connected watch for sports
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the 1-4 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another advantage of Linchm watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The Linchm 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.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
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.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
The 1-4 in conclusion
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’s the highlight of this connected watch:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
