As a preamble to this test
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.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|Its health-oriented functionalities|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|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.
A watch connected for health
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.
Yamay’s a62 offers its latest high-end model.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Yamay decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this a62 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.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.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the a62, this is what you can expect.
Through this model, Yamay offers an interesting product.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Yamay didn’t see fit to install it.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
Yamay opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.One of the most useful applications to have on the wrist every day with this a62 is undoubtedly the NFC.You simply place your watch near the merchant’s terminal and pay for your ticket, your drink or whatever you buy without having to take your wallet out of your pocket.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.
The smartwatch designed for sports
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 relevant choice for many physically active people.Is a62 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.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.
The Yamay watch: a good choice to be connected?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.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.
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.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.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
The a62 – in a nutshell
As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
