In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.
The perfect watch for health monitoring?
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.
Clearly, the GTO is one of the best possible choices.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Kospet decided to use his own portable operating system.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This GTO gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
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.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the GTO test shows.
Kospet has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.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.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
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.
One last point about the features of this watch is the music function.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.
The watch to improve physical performance?
A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Is GTO 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.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
The right choice for downloading applications?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.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 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.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
In short, The GTO, the right choice?
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
