Analysis and handling of the Free fit1 from Oryto.

Foreword

Connected watches have become powerful.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
Not enough sport-oriented features
The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

The Free fit1, the right one for healthy use?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The Free fit1 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Oryto decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Dedicated for everyday use

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the Free fit1, this is what you can expect.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
The battery has a power of 170 mAh, making it one of the lowest today.
And yet the manufacturer indicates 10 hours of autonomy.
This model does not have GPS.Oryto didn’t see fit to install it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.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.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.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.Is Free fit1 a new electronic gadget?
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
On the battery side, it’s unfortunately bad with only 170 mAh, which induces one of the lowest autonomy among all smartwatches.
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.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.

One of the interesting features of this watch is the possibility to listen to music.

The right choice for downloading 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.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
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.
With its 1.4-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.Finally, its 170 mAh battery, due to its lack of power, may require regular recharging.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
