Analysis and handling of the C30-EU from Agptek.

In presentation

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution. There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.

Several weak points on this watch :
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

A watch connected for health

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.
The C30-EU is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.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 main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
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

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the C30-EU, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.This watch informs you and gives advice.
Fossil says the device will last about 15 days.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.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.So you can safely swim with it.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The smartwatch designed for sports

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the C30-EU is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.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.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

A connected watch with which applications

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

C30-EU, the right choice for the right use

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
