Analysis and handling of the 1-4 from Linchm.

To start

Connected watches have become powerful.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– The size of his screen
– Its weight/size
– Its daily use
– Few 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?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Clearly, the 1-4 is one of the best possible choices.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Linchm decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.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.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

Dedicated for everyday use

Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the 1-4 could do for you.
Linchm has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
This model does not have GPS.Linchm didn’t see fit to install it.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.Indeed, it is only 84 gr; that is to say, what is lighter.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.That wasn’t planned here.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Here’s the 1-4 detail.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 84 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
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.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

The right model to install applications?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With this small 0.95-inch screen, it’s not easy to get a good view of the information provided.It is one of the lightest watches – 84 grams.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

The 1-4 in conclusion
