Analysis and handling of the GPS-S12-BLACK from Pthtechus.

In a few words

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough 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 are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Our tests have shown that the GPS-S12-BLACK is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Pthtechus decided to use his own portable operating system.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It will then be possible to follow your activity 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.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Dedicated for everyday use

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?For the GPS-S12-BLACK, this is what you can expect.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.She’s a long way from Apple Watch.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.Some users will never use it.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
Pthtechus opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.It’s an easy watch to wear.Its weight is very low, 95 grams, less than on comparable models.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.You will have to choose another watch for this.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.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 GPS-S12-BLACK detail.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 95 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
It includes GPS tracking.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The watch works with 3G technology.Mobile connectivity not only provides access to location, but also allows the device to retrieve notifications and alerts from the network to your smartphone.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

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 influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
It is one of the lightest watches – 95 grams.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

Finally, The GPS-S12-BLACK…

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
