In a few words
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.
|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.
Health follow-up question, what is the Band 1 worth?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Realme’s Band 1 offers its latest high-end model.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.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.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this Band 1.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.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.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
The right choice every day?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this Band 1 now.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.This watch informs you and gives advice.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Realmertunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.
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 product with many advantages.And as far as the Band 1 is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
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.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
The Realme watch: a good choice to be connected?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.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.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
The Band 1 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.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
