Analysis and handling of the S10 from Nbrand.

And to begin with…

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 daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

A watch connected for health

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The S10 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Nbrand decided to use his own portable operating system.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
The S10 unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.A useful device when you want to keep track of the calories burned during the day.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the S10 could do for you.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.It’s almost to an essential element in everyday life.
It has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 480 mAh.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.Its weight is very low, 68 grams, less than on comparable models.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Contrary to what the skeptics say, this smartwatch is more than an accessory, and you’ll appreciate this feature.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the S10 detail.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 68 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
It is one of the models with one of the best autonomy, for a 480 mAh battery.
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 works with 3G technology.You will thus be able to receive your notifications directly on the watch.

A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.

A connected watch with which applications

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
It belongs to the category of lightweight smartwatches: 68 grams.
On the battery side, with its 480 mAh, it is very powerful.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 a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

The S10 in conclusion

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its daily use
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
