Analysis and handling of the AC-705 from Chereeki.

And to begin with…

Connected watches have become powerful.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 :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

Is the AC-705 compatible with healthy use?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The AC-705 may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.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.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
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.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
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.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

A connected and practical watch

Do you need a smart watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the AC-705, this is what you can expect.
Through this model, Chereeki offers an interesting product.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
The battery power is not the best, 210 mAh, corresponding to an average power.
As for the autonomy, Chereeki considers that it will last 10 hours.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
Chereeki opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC 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?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.Is AC-705 a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
With a battery power of 210 mAh, it is in the middle of its category.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

A connected watch with which applications

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
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.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
For the battery, with its 210 mAh, this watch is powerful enough.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

AC-705, 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.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
