Analysis and handling of the PTH X9 from Pthtechus.

And to begin with…

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.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 :
– Screen size
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good 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 PTH X9, the right one for healthy use?

For several years now, Pthtechus has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Our tests have shown that the PTH X9 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Pthtechus decided to use his own portable operating system.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.Menus and features are less easy to find.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A useful device when you want to keep track of the calories burned during the day.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?For the PTH X9, this is what you can expect.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
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 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 allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the PTH X9 is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
The watch works with 3G technology.Your smartphone notifications are thus directly accessible on your watch.

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

The right model to install applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
Its 1.44-inch screen size will also make it easy for you to read the information.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

In short, The PTH X9, the right choice?

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Screen size
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
