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?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.
The band 3e, the right one for healthy use?
For several years now, Huawei 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.
From this point of view, the band 3e is a good choice.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Huawei decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this band 3e.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.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.
What are its functions for everyday use?
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.For the band 3e, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
Even though the manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 1 hours.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
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.The function is not available here.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
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.We explain what band 3e can do for you.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another advantage of Huawei watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
The watch and possible applications
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
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.
Finally, The band 3e…
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.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
