The watch that tells you about your health?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Clearly, the K5 is one of the best possible choices.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Duoduogo decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this K5 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the K5, this is what you can expect.
As far as everyday life is concerned, Fossil allows this model to be at the top of the rankings.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
It has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 360 mAh.
The manufacturer provides 7 days of autonomy.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all 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.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.So you can safely swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
Duoduogo opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
We appreciated the wireless charging function.You no longer need to plug in a cable to charge it.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, we would have appreciated the Duoduogortunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

A connected watch with which 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.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.On the battery side, with its 360 mAh, it is very powerful.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.
