The Connectée, the right one for healthy use?
For several years now, Pedkit has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Pedkit’s Connectée offers its latest high-end model.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this Connectée is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
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.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
A connected and practical watch
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this Connectée now.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
With only 150 mAh, this watch is equipped with one of the least powerful batteries.
Although Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 12 hours.
This model does not have GPS.Pedkit didn’t see fit to install it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.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.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.
Pedkit’s smartwatch: a good choice 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 Connectée is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
One of the weak points of this smartwatch is its autonomy; it is one of the lowest at 150 mAh.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
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.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
The watch and possible applications
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.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Only those installed by default are available.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.Its 150 mAh battery is one of the lowest powers in the smartwatch category.
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.
In short, The Connectée, the right choice?
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:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
