Analysis and handling of the CS201 from Kungix.

In presentation

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.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 :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Its daily use
– 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.

The watch that tells you about your health?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The CS201 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.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 sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

The right choice every day?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the CS201, this is what you can expect.
Kungix has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
The battery power of 170 mAh makes this watch one of the worst.
And yet the manufacturer indicates 10 hours of autonomy.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.So you can safely swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.

Kungix’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.Here’s the CS201 detail.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
It is a watch with a very low autonomy, because of its 170 mAh battery.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
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.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The watch and possible applications

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
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.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 170 mAh of power.
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.

What about the CS201?

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
