Analysis and handling of the Y13 from Genrics.

And to begin with…

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 :
– Its daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The Y13, the right one for healthy use?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Our tests have shown that the Y13 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this Y13 is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.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 watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your 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.

Interesting for 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 Y13 test shows.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.It integrates quickly and easily into your daily life.
It has one of the best batteries, 400 mAh.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
The screen is protected by reinforced glass.This will prevent small accidents such as scratches.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, we would have appreciated the Genricsrtunity to listen to music on this model.The function is not available here.

The smartwatch designed for sports

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the Y13 detail.
This new model will be of interest to those who play sports on a regular basis.The various sensors allow you to measure data relating to your fitness and therefore your health.It offers summaries on the evolution of the sport you practice.
It has an excellent autonomy, thanks to its 400 mAh battery.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
The presence of the SIM in this watch makes 3G connection possible.Mobile connectivity not only provides access to location, but also allows the device to retrieve notifications and alerts from the network to your smartphone.

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.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
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.
The power of its battery – 400 mAh – 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.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
