Analysis and handling of the A-M8-02 from Aimiuvei.

In presentation

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.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
– 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.

A watch connected for health

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Our tests have shown that the A-M8-02 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Aimiuvei decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.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 model does not have a sleep measurement.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.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.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

A smartwatch 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 A-M8-02 test shows.
Through this model, Aimiuvei offers an interesting product.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
This model comes standard with GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
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.Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The function is not available here.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a product with many advantages.Is A-M8-02 a new electronic gadget?
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.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.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

The watch and possible 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.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.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

The A-M8-02 in conclusion

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.
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
