Analysis and handling of the TE021 from Yamay.

Foreword

Connected watches have become powerful. There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The watch that tells you about your health?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Yamay’s TE021 offers its latest high-end model.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Yamay decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this TE021 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.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements 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.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the TE021 could do for you.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.This watch informs you and gives advice.
The manufacturer provides 30 days of autonomy.
This model comes standard with GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.Its weight is very low, 150 grams, less than on comparable models.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
One last point about the features of this watch is the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

The smartwatch designed for sports

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the TE021 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
As for its weight, it’s rather low down in the rankings; its 150 grams make it one of the heaviest smartwatches.
It includes GPS tracking.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.

The right model to install applications?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
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.
With a screen size of 1.3 inches, it is in the average.It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 150 grams.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

The TE021 in conclusion

The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its weight/size
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
