As a preamble to this test
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.
|The highlights of this connected watch are :|
|– Its health-oriented functionalities|
|– Its daily use|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– 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.
The YY-GM01A, the right one for healthy use?
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.
Voigoo’s YY-GM01A offers its latest high-end model.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this YY-GM01A is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This YY-GM01A gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements 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.
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.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.This is precisely what the YY-GM01A test shows.
Voigoo almost makes a mistake with this model.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
It is one of the models with a high-performance battery, 280 mAh, among the best.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Voigoo didn’t see fit to install it.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.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.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.
Voigoo’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.Is YY-GM01A a new electronic gadget?
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It is one of the models with one of the best autonomy, for a 280 mAh battery.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
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.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
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.
Is it suitable for all needs?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.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.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
With a screen size of 1.3 inches, it is in the average.On the battery side, with its 280 mAh, it is very powerful.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.
YY-GM01A, the right choice for the right use

Here are a few reasons that summarize its ranking:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
