The perfect watch for health monitoring?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The ETX001 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.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 would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.A useful device when you want to keep track of the calories burned during the day.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
The right choice every day?
Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the ETX001 test shows.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
Edtouch opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.It’s a stylish and contemporary watch.Indeed, it is only 62 gr; that is to say, what is lighter.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
Edtouch’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
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 ETX001 a new electronic gadget?
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 62 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.
A connected watch with which applications
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
