The perfect watch for health monitoring?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Our tests have shown that the s10 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

It is one of the models with a high-performance battery, 380 mAh, among the best.
This model does not have GPS.Jaybest didn’t see fit to install it.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
This watch recharges normally with the cable supplied.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
The watch to improve physical performance?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what s10 can do for you.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
It is one of the models with one of the best autonomy, for a 380 mAh battery.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
The watch works with 3G technology.Your smartphone notifications are thus directly accessible on your watch.
An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.
The Jaybest watch: a good choice to be connected?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not really designed to install new 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.
Its 380 mAh battery is one of the most powerful on the market.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
