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.

Several weak points on this watch :
Little functionality for health monitoring
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?

For several years now, Umidigi 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.
The uwatch3 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and 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 allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

A connected and practical watch

Through this model, Umidigi offers an interesting product.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
It is a correct watch in terms of battery, with 210 mAh.
Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 10 hours.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a 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.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
An indispensable feature of this watch is wireless charging.You place it close to the stand and load 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.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.And as far as the uwatch3 is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
With a battery power of 210 mAh, it is in the middle of its category.
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.
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 advantage of Umidigi 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.

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

A connected watch with which applications

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Only those installed by default are available.
With a screen size of 1.3 inches, it is in the average.Finally, its 210 mAh battery is in the average.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.
