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 are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The design of the YM023-GN is impeccable.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Yamay 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.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this YM023-GN is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
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.
Interesting for everyday life?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the YM023-GN test shows.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.
A connected watch for sports
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.We explain what YM023-GN can do for you.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.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.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
The watch and possible applications
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.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.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
Finally, The YM023-GN…
As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.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:

The few weak points could be:
