Analysis and handling of the rose from Gokoo.

In presentation

Connected watches have become powerful.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 :
Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
Its weight/size
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.

The rose, the right one for healthy use?

For several years now, Gokoo has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The design of the rose is impeccable.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Gokoo decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.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.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this rose is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.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.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

The right choice every day?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the rose test shows.
The model designed by Gokoo offers an entry-level product.She’s a long way from Apple Watch.
The thing that will be missing is the battery power, which with its 180 mAh could have been better.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.It is one of the lightest (118 grams) in this range.
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.You will have to choose another watch for this.

The watch to improve physical performance?

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.Is rose a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
As for its weight, it’s rather low down in the rankings; its 118 grams make it one of the heaviest smartwatches.
On the battery side, it’s unfortunately bad with only 180 mAh, which induces one of the lowest autonomy among all smartwatches.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The Gokoo watch: a good choice to be connected?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.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 its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.With a contained weight of 118 grams, you’ll forget you’re wearing it on your wrist.
The power of its battery – 180 mAh – is the worst thing about today.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

Finally, The rose…

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Its weight/size
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
