As a preamble to this test

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
– Its daily use
– 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.

A watch connected for health

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The Kidizoom is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.Menus and features are less easy to find.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

Dedicated for everyday use

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this Kidizoom now.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.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.And as far as the Kidizoom is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.

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

Is it suitable for all needs?

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.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 well placed in terms of applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

Finally, The Kidizoom…

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.
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
