Analysis and handling of the MKT5062 from Michael kors.

As a preamble to this test

Connected watches have become powerful.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.

Several weak points on this watch :
The size of his screen
Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
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.

Health follow-up question, what is the MKT5062 worth?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.The MKT5062 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this MKT5062 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.Menus and features are less easy to find.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this MKT5062 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

The right choice every day?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?For the MKT5062, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
Even though the manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 2 hours.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
It has an attractive round screen, more so than many other more expensive models.This is a beautiful watch similar to some of the competing models in terms of aesthetics.You will also be able to choose from the many colours available.
Michael kors opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.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 Michael korsrtunity to listen to music on this model.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The watch to improve physical performance?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.And as far as the MKT5062 is concerned, here’s the thing.
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.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in 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.
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.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

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.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
You’ll have to concentrate on reading the information on this 0.7-inch screen, which is one of the smallest.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

In short, The MKT5062, the right choice?

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
The few weak points could be:
– The size of his screen
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
