In a few words
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?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.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Not enough 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 perfect watch for health monitoring?
For several years now, Otti has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Following our tests, this 3S has a low score for healthy use.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.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
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.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
Interesting for everyday life?
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the 3S, this is what you can expect.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
A connected watch for sports
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the 3S is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another advantage of Otti watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
The Otti watch: a good choice to be connected?
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.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.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
3S, the right choice for the right use
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
