The perfect watch for health monitoring?
For several years now, Blackview has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Clearly, the X1 is one of the best possible choices.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.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.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
The right choice every day?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the X1 could do for you.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.It integrates quickly and easily into your daily life.
It has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 260 mAh.
The manufacturer provides 5 days of autonomy.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Blackview didn’t see fit to install it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
An ingenious feature on this X1 is the ability to recharge wirelessly.You put it on its stand, and it charges.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
Blackview’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Is X1 a new electronic gadget?
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
Its battery has one of the best autonomies with 260 mAh on the 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.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.
The right model to install applications?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.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.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Only those installed by default are available.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.Finally, its 260 mAh battery is the best today.Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
The X1 in conclusion
