Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
The watch that tells you about your health?
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Our tests have shown that the A5-01 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Aimiuvei decided to use his own portable operating system.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.
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 watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
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.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
A connected and practical watch
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the A5-01 test shows.
Aimiuvei has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
This model comes standard with 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.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
Aimiuvei opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.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.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.Is A5-01 a new electronic gadget?
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 its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
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?
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.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
Finally, The A5-01…
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
