You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Few sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
The A5-02, the right one for healthy use?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The A5-02 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this A5-02 is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
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.
Dedicated for everyday use
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the A5-02 could do for you.
Through this model, Aimiuvei offers an interesting product.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
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.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
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, we would have appreciated the Aimiuveirtunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The watch to improve physical performance?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the A5-02 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another advantage of Aimiuvei watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
The right model to install applications?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
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.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
Finally, The A5-02…
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:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
