Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
A watch connected for health
For several years now, Realme has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Following our tests, this RMA161 has a low score for healthy use.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Realme decided to use his own portable operating system.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
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.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
The right choice every day?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the RMA161 could do for you.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
The thing that will be missing is the battery power, which with its 160 mAh could have been better.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
Realme opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.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.
A connected watch for sports
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Is RMA161 a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
It is one of the watches with the lowest battery life of 160 mAh.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another advantage of Realme watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
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.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
The power of its battery – 160 mAh – is the worst thing about today.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
RMA161, 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.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
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
