In a few words
Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected. There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.
|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|
In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.
Is the HF05 compatible with healthy use?
For several years now, Hopofit has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
From this point of view, the HF05 is a good choice.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this HF05 is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this HF05 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.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and 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 connected and practical watch
Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the HF05 could do for you.
Through this model, Hopofit offers an interesting product.This watch informs you and gives advice.
Even though the manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 5 hours.
This model comes standard with GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.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.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
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.
Hopofit’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Here’s the HF05 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.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.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The right model to install 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.
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.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.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.
The HF05 – in a nutshell
The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
