And to begin with…
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Its daily use|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– 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.
The Kids, the right one for healthy use?
