In a few words
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Its daily use|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Not enough sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
The watch that tells you about your health?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Our tests have shown that the X6 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
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.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
A connected and practical watch
Do you need a smart watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the X6 could do for you.
Mahipey almost makes a mistake with this model.It’s almost to an essential element in everyday life.
It is one of the best battery-powered watches, with 500 mAh.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
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.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.One last point about the features of this watch is the music function.Contrary to what the skeptics say, this smartwatch is more than an accessory, and you’ll appreciate this feature.
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 allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the X6 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
It has an excellent autonomy, thanks to its 500 mAh battery.
Also note that this watch does not have 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.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
One of the interesting features of this watch is the possibility to listen to music.
Is it suitable for all needs?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Finally, its 500 mAh battery is the best today.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.
The X6 – in a nutshell
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its daily use
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
