In presentation

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 health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
Its daily use
Not enough sport-oriented features
The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

The watch that tells you about your health?

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.
The YM-CS201 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.Menus and features are less easy to find.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This YM-CS201 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.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.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the YM-CS201 test shows.
Yonmig has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
The battery power of 170 mAh makes this watch one of the worst.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

The watch to improve physical performance?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the YM-CS201 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
On the battery side, it’s unfortunately bad with only 170 mAh, which induces one of the lowest autonomy among all smartwatches.
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.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

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

A connected watch with which applications

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.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.
With an average screen size of 1.3 inches, the information is readable.The power of its battery – 170 mAh – is the worst thing about today.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

YM-CS201, the right choice for the right use

The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here’s the highlight of this connected watch:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
