Analysis and handling of the YM022-BK-F-IT9 from Yamay.

And to begin with…

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?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 :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

For several years now, Yamay has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.The YM022-BK-F-IT9 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this YM022-BK-F-IT9 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.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.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the YM022-BK-F-IT9 could do for you.
Through this model, Yamay offers an interesting product.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
One last point about the features of this watch is the music function.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.

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 YM022-BK-F-IT9 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

In short, The YM022-BK-F-IT9, the right choice?

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.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
