Analysis and handling of the X6 from Mahipey.

As a preamble to this test

Connected watches have become powerful.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The X6 may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on PropriƩtaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

Dedicated for everyday use

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 X6 could do for you.
As far as everyday life is concerned, Fossil allows this model to be at the top of the rankings.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
It is one of the best battery-powered watches, with 500 mAh.
This model does not have GPS.Mahipey didn’t see fit to install it.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
Mahipey opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.

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.Here’s the X6 detail.
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 500 mAh battery.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.

You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.

The right model to install applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.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.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Its 500 mAh battery is one of the most powerful on the market.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.

X6, the right choice for the right use

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.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:
– Its daily use
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
