As a preamble to this test
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 health-oriented functionalities|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Few 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
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Phipuds’s KP-01 offers its latest high-end model.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this KP-01 is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this KP-01 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
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.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the KP-01, this is what you can expect.
Phipuds has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
The manufacturer even announces a service life of 30 days.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
One last point about the features of this watch is the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
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.We explain what KP-01 can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
One of the interesting features of this watch is the possibility to listen to music.
The Phipuds watch: a good choice to be connected?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
KP-01, the right choice for the right use
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
