And to begin with…
The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution. 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.
|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|
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 may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this G22 has a low score for healthy use.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this G22 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
The G22 unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
The right choice every day?
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the G22 test shows.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
The thing that will be missing is the battery power, which with its 160 mAh could have been better.
And yet the manufacturer indicates 7 hours of autonomy.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.
Agptek’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.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the G22 detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
It is a watch with a very low autonomy, because of its 160 mAh battery.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Another advantage of Agptek watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
Is it suitable for all needs?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.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.On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 160 mAh of power.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
What about the G22?
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
