Analysis and handling of the P22D from Motast.

To start

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Screen size
Several weak points on this watch :
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The P22D, the right one for healthy use?

For several years now, Motast has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this P22D has a low score for healthy use.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

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.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.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 also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this P22D now.
The model designed by Motast offers an entry-level product.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
The battery has a power of 180 mAh, making it one of the lowest today.
And yet the manufacturer indicates 7 hours of autonomy.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
Motast opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
An ingenious feature on this P22D is the ability to recharge wirelessly.You no longer need to plug in a cable to charge it.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.You will have to choose another watch for this.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.And as far as the P22D is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
On the battery side, it’s unfortunately bad with only 180 mAh, which induces one of the lowest autonomy among all smartwatches.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
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.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

Is it suitable for all needs?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.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.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
Thanks to the large screen size of 1.4 inches, it is no problem to analyze the data displayed.Its 180 mAh battery is one of the lowest powers in the smartwatch category.
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.

P22D, 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.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Screen size
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
