Analysis and handling of the SH85 from Gokoo.

And to begin with…

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.

Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– 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.

Is the SH85 compatible with healthy use?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.The SH85 may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on PropriƩtaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
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.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
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.In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

Interesting for everyday life?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the SH85, this is what you can expect.
Gokoo has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.This watch informs you and gives advice.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.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.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
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, music lovers will appreciate the possibility of listening to music on this model.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Here’s the SH85 detail.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Another advantage of Gokoo watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.

A connected watch with which applications

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
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.

In short, The SH85, the right choice?

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:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
