Analysis and handling of the S6 from Vannico.

To start

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 :
Little functionality for health monitoring
Its daily use
Not enough sport-oriented features
The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

The watch that tells you about your health?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Following our tests, this S6 has a low score for healthy use.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this S6 is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the S6 could do for you.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
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.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.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.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the S6 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The 3G function is available on this smartwatch with the presence of the SIM.This will allow you to retrieve your alerts that initially arrive on your smartphone.

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

The Vannico watch: a good choice to be connected?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
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.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

Finally, The S6…

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
