As a preamble to this test
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary? 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 daily use|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– 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
For several years now, Haylou has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Our tests have shown that the LS05 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Interesting for everyday life?
Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the LS05 test shows.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
It is one of the models with a high-performance battery, 340 mAh, among the best.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Haylou didn’t see fit to install it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.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.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.It’s a stylish and contemporary watch.Its weight is very low, 54 grams, less than on comparable models.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Haylourtunity to listen to music on this model.That wasn’t planned here.
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.And as far as the LS05 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
With its weight of 54 grams, it is still one of the heaviest watches.
It is one of the models with one of the best autonomy, for a 340 mAh battery.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
The right choice for downloading applications?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
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.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
It belongs to the category of lightweight smartwatches: 54 grams.
Finally, its 340 mAh battery is the best today.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
The LS05 – in a nutshell
The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its daily use
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
