As a preamble to this test
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Its health-oriented functionalities|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its daily use|
|– 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.
A watch connected for health
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
From this point of view, the OKVF0 is a good choice.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this OKVF0 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
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.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?For the OKVF0, this is what you can expect.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
The battery has a power of 180 mAh, making it one of the lowest today.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Not on this watch.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what OKVF0 can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
On the battery side, it’s unfortunately bad with only 180 mAh, which induces one of the lowest autonomy among all smartwatches.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Another advantage of Cokil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
The right model to install 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.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 180 mAh of power.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
What about the OKVF0?
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
