Analysis and handling of the S-Q58-HS-008 from Soding.

In presentation

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.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its daily use
– Few 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?

For several years now, Soding has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Soding’s S-Q58-HS-008 offers its latest high-end model.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this S-Q58-HS-008 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
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.

The right choice every day?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the S-Q58-HS-008 test shows.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
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.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
Soding opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

Soding’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what S-Q58-HS-008 can do for you.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Another advantage of Soding watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The right model to install applications?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.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.Only those installed by default are available.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

The S-Q58-HS-008 – in a nutshell

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
