This article will help you see more clearly.

A watch connected for health

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Voigoo’s YY-GM01A offers its latest high-end model.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Voigoo decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.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 YY-GM01A is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.This will allow you to interpret your movements 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.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Do you need a smart watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the YY-GM01A, this is what you can expect.
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 has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 280 mAh.
This model does not have GPS.Voigoo didn’t see fit to install it.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
Voigoo opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

Voigoo’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.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the YY-GM01A is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
Its battery has one of the best autonomies with 280 mAh on the battery.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

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

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.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.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
With an average screen size of 1.3 inches, the information is readable.On the battery side, with its 280 mAh, it is very powerful.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 a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
