And to begin with…
Connected watches have become powerful.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Screen size|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Its daily use|
|– Few sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
The X20, the right one for healthy use?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Our tests have shown that the X20 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this X20 is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
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.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the X20 test shows.
Yenisey has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the 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 right model for analyzing his sports activity?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.We explain what X20 can do for you.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
The watch works with 3G technology.Mobile connectivity not only provides access to location, but also allows the device to retrieve notifications and alerts from the network to your smartphone.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
A connected watch with which applications
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.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 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.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.55 inches.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
Finally, The X20…
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.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Screen size
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
