In a few words
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– Few 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 perfect watch for health monitoring?
For several years now, Jinpx has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The MXS-14 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this MXS-14 is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
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.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
Is this watch useful in everyday life?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the MXS-14 test shows.
Jinpx has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
This model comes standard with GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.So you can safely swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
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.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The function is not available here.
The watch to improve physical performance?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Here’s the MXS-14 detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
It includes GPS tracking.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Another advantage of Jinpx watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
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 Jinpx watch: a good choice to be connected?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
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.
The MXS-14 – in a nutshell
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
