Analysis and handling of the X9-Azul from Meritsoar.

To start

Connected watches have become powerful.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Not enough 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.

A watch connected for health

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The X9-Azul may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the X9-Azul test shows.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
It has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 400 mAh.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
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.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Meritsoarrtunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the X9-Azul 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.
It has an excellent autonomy, thanks to its 400 mAh battery.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.

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

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.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Finally, its 400 mAh battery is the best today.Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

What about the X9-Azul?

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its daily use
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
