Analysis and handling of the 1-6 from Linchm.

To start

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?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 :
Its daily use
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.

Health follow-up question, what is the 1-6 worth?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The design of the 1-6 is impeccable.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.Menus and features are less easy to find.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Interesting 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 1-6 test shows.
The model designed by Linchm offers an entry-level product.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.

Linchm’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.We explain what 1-6 can do for you.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of 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.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The right model to install 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.
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.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

The 1-6 – in a nutshell

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.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its daily use
