And to begin with…
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 :|
|Its daily use|
|Not enough sport-oriented features|
|The impossibility of putting new applications|
Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
The tip-11, the right one for healthy use?
For several years now, Tipmant has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The design of the tip-11 is impeccable.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
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 are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this tip-11 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.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
Is this watch useful in everyday life?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the tip-11 test shows.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
This model comes standard with GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
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.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Tipmantrtunity to listen to music on this model.That wasn’t planned here.
The watch to improve physical performance?
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 tip-11 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It includes GPS tracking.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
Is it suitable for all needs?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.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.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
The tip-11 – in a nutshell
As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
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
