Analysis and handling of the Y20B from Lige.

In presentation

Connected watches have become powerful.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.

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
– 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 Y20B, the right one for healthy use?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Following our tests, this Y20B has a low score for healthy use.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Lige decided to use his own portable operating system.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
This 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.
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

Do you need a smart watch?How is this useful in your daily life?For the Y20B, this is what you can expect.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
This watch recharges normally with the cable supplied.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.Indeed, it is only 85 gr; that is to say, what is lighter.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Ligertunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.

Lige’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.And as far as the Y20B is concerned, here’s the thing.
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.
With its weight of 85 grams, it is still one of the heaviest watches.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
The presence of the SIM in this watch makes 3G connection possible.Your smartphone notifications are thus directly accessible on your watch.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

The right model to install 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.
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.Only those installed by default are available.
With its large 1.4-inch screen, information is clearly displayed.It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 85 grams.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

In short, The Y20B, the right choice?

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Screen size
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
