|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Screen size|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– 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.
A watch connected for health
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Our tests have shown that the Y16 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 Y16 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.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
The right choice every day?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the Y16 test shows.
Through this model, Jaybest offers an interesting product.This watch informs you and gives advice.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.It’s an easy watch to wear.It is one of the lightest (78 grams) in this range.
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.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.
A connected watch for sports
A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Is Y16 a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 78 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
The watch works with 3G technology.You will thus be able to receive your notifications directly on the watch.
An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.
The Jaybest watch: a good choice to be connected?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.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 its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
With its large 1.54-inch screen, information is clearly displayed.It belongs to the category of lightweight smartwatches: 78 grams.
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.
What about the Y16?
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Screen size
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
