And to begin with…
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.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Its daily use|
|– 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 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 may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this V8 has a low score for healthy use.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This V8 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?For the V8, this is what you can expect.
The model designed by Tipmant offers an entry-level product.She’s a long way from Apple Watch.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
Tipmant opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.At 67 grams, this makes it one of the lightest models in its class.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.The function is not available here.
Tipmant’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Is V8 a new electronic gadget?
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 67 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
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.
The presence of the SIM in this watch makes 3G connection possible.Mobile connectivity not only provides access to location, but also allows the device to retrieve notifications and alerts from the network to your smartphone.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
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 means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
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.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.With a contained weight of 67 grams, you’ll forget you’re wearing it on your wrist.
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.
V8, the right choice for the right use
The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
The few weak points could be:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
