Analysis and handling of the K5 from Duoduogo.

In presentation

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.

The highlights of this connected watch are :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
The main weak point to be taken into account :
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

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 may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Clearly, the K5 is one of the best possible choices.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this K5 is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.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.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this K5.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements 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 also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the K5, this is what you can expect.
Duoduogo almost makes a mistake with this model.It’s almost to an essential element in everyday life.
It has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 360 mAh.
As for the autonomy, Duoduogo assures that it will last 7 days.
This model comes standard with GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
We appreciated the wireless charging function.The watch is placed on its base, and the battery charging is activated.
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 watch to improve physical performance?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.Is K5 a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil meets the needs of sportsmen and women.It tracks in real time the data related to your sports activity.It offers summaries on the evolution of the sport you practice.
Its battery has one of the best autonomies with 360 mAh on the battery.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

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

The right choice for downloading 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.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download 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.The power of its battery – 360 mAh – is the best today.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

K5, the right choice for the right use
