As a preamble to this test
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?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.
|The highlights of this connected watch are :|
|Its health-oriented functionalities|
|Its daily use|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|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 LS02, 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.
Clearly, the LS02 is one of the best possible choices.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this LS02 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Interesting for everyday life?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.This is precisely what the LS02 test shows.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
It is one of the best battery-powered watches, with 260 mAh.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
Haylou opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The function is not available here.
Haylou’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
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.Is LS02 a new electronic gadget?
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Its battery has one of the best autonomies with 260 mAh on the battery.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
Is it suitable for all needs?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
With a screen size of 1.4 inches, it is in the average.Its 260 mAh battery is one of the most powerful on the market.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 LS02, the right choice?
Our tests have shown us that this model is a good compromise.It is a good product, which in most cases will meet your needs.
In short, it has many strong points; here is what we can retain among them:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
