Analysis and handling of the 182-GR from Padgene.

To start

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 daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– 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?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The 182-GR may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Padgene decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

Interesting for everyday life?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the 182-GR could do for you.
As far as everyday life is concerned, Fossil allows this model to be at the top of the rankings.It integrates quickly and easily into your daily life.
Although Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 5 hours.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
An ingenious feature on this 182-GR is the ability to recharge wirelessly.You put it on its stand, and it charges.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

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 product with many advantages.We explain what 182-GR can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
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.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

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

Is it suitable for all needs?

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.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.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

What about the 182-GR?

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.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its daily use
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
