Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
The G20, the right one for healthy use?
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.
Following our tests, this G20 has a low score for healthy use.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep 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.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
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.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Interesting for everyday life?
Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the G20, this is what you can expect.
Through this model, Gokoo offers an interesting product.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Not on this watch.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
Gokoo’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.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the G20 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
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 positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.
The right choice for downloading applications?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.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.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
With a screen size of 1.3 inches, it is in the average.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
The G20 in conclusion
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 are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
