Analysis and handling of the Connectée from Pedkit.

As a preamble to this test

Connected watches have become powerful.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

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.

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

For several years now, Pedkit has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The Connectée corresponds to the latest generation of watches.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Pedkit decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?For the Connectée, this is what you can expect.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
The thing that will be missing is the battery power, which with its 150 mAh could have been better.
Even though the manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 12 hours.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.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.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.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.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Here’s the Connectée detail.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It is a watch with a very low autonomy, because of its 150 mAh battery.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include 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.
Another advantage of Pedkit watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

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?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
With an average screen size of 1.3 inches, the information is readable.Its 150 mAh battery is one of the lowest powers in the smartwatch category.
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.

Connectée, the right choice for the right use

The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.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
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
