The Y13, the right one for healthy use?
For several years now, Genrics has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Following our tests, this Y13 has a low score for healthy use.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Genrics decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.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.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
It is one of the best battery-powered watches, with 400 mAh.
This model comes standard with GPS.Some users will never use it.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.So you can safely swim with it.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
For added safety, it is equipped with a reinforced screen.Even if you are careful, you are never safe from a scratch or a shock to the watch.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.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.That wasn’t planned here.

The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
The watch contains a SIM card that enables 3G communication.This will allow you to retrieve your alerts that initially arrive on your smartphone.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
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.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
The power of its battery – 400 mAh – is the best today.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.
