As a preamble to this test
The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– 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.
Is the 1-6 compatible with healthy use?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Linchm’s 1-6 offers its latest high-end model.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this 1-6 is no exception.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.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
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
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the 1-6 test shows.
The model designed by Linchm offers an entry-level product.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
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 function is not available here.
A connected watch 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.Here’s the 1-6 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
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.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The right choice for downloading applications?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
In short, The 1-6, the right choice?
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
