– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The KP-01, the right one for healthy use?

For several years now, Phipuds has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
From this point of view, the KP-01 is a good choice.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this KP-01 is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.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.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical 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.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the KP-01 test shows.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
The manufacturer even announces a service life of 30 days.
This model does not have GPS.Not on this watch.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
Phipuds opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
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.And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

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 KP-01 can do for you.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in 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.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
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.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
