As a preamble to this test
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?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 :|
|– The size of his screen|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Few 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 band 4 pro, 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 complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Clearly, the band 4 pro is one of the best possible choices.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
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.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
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.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
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.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the band 4 pro test shows.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.So you can safely swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.It’s an easy watch to wear.It is one of the lightest (150 grams) in this range.
This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Huaweirtunity to listen to music on this model.The function is not available here.
A connected watch for sports
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.We explain what band 4 pro can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
As for its weight, it’s rather low down in the rankings; its 150 grams make it one of the heaviest smartwatches.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.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.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
A connected watch with which applications
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.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 really designed to install new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With this small 0.95-inch screen, it’s not easy to get a good view of the information provided.It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 150 grams.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
The band 4 pro – in a nutshell
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– The size of his screen
– Its weight/size
