Analysis and handling of the Kidizoom from Vtech.

Foreword

Connected watches have become powerful.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

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.

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The Kidizoom may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
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?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the Kidizoom 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.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
Vtech opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
This watch recharges normally with the cable supplied.
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.In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.You will have to choose another watch for this.

Vtech’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.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.We explain what Kidizoom can do for you.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.

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

The watch and possible applications

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
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.

What about the Kidizoom?

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
