As an introduction to this analysis
The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– 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
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.
The M3 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.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.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A useful device when you want to keep track of the calories burned during the 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.
Dedicated for everyday use
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the M3 could do for you.
Aubess has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
This model comes standard with GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
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.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.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
The right model for analyzing his sports activity?
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Is M3 a new electronic gadget?
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
It includes GPS tracking.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.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.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The watch and possible applications
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.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 its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.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.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
Finally, The M3…
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.
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
