In a few words

Connected watches have become powerful.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.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Screen size
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good 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.

The watch that tells you about your health?

For several years now, Garmin 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 vivomove style has a low score for healthy use.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 PropriƩtaire or Apple.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
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 vivomove style 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.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
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).
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

Dedicated for everyday use

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this vivomove style now.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
As for the autonomy, Garmin assures that it will last 14 days.
This model comes standard with GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
For added safety, it is equipped with a reinforced screen.This will prevent small accidents such as scratches.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Is vivomove style a new electronic gadget?
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.

A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.

The right model to install applications?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of 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.
With its large 1.6-inch screen, information is clearly displayed.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

What about the vivomove style?

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.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Screen size
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
