Analysis and handling of the X20 from Yenisey.

As a preamble to this test

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected. 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 :
– Screen size
Several weak points on this watch :
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

The X20, the right one for healthy use?

For several years now, Yenisey 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The X20 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
The X20 unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the 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.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the X20 test shows.
Yenisey has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
This model does not have GPS.Not on this watch.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
Yenisey opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

A connected watch for sports

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.And as far as the X20 is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
The 3G function is available on this smartwatch with the presence of the SIM.This will allow you to retrieve your alerts that initially arrive on your smartphone.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

A connected watch with which applications

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.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.
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.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With its large 1.55-inch screen, information is clearly displayed.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.

The X20 – in a nutshell

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.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– 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
