A watch connected for health
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.
Following our tests, this S6 GPS Blue has a low score for healthy use.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.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.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 S6 GPS Blue is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.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.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
Interesting 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?For the S6 GPS Blue, this is what you can expect.
Pthtechus has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The function is not available here.
Pthtechus’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.Is S6 GPS Blue a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
It includes GPS tracking.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
The watch contains a SIM card that enables 3G communication.Mobile connectivity not only provides access to location, but also allows the device to retrieve notifications and alerts from the network to your smartphone.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
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?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.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.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
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.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
