Medion S3750: design and displayThe Medion S3750 bracelet consists of a plastic housing with a removable bracelet. An additional bracelet in blue is included in delivery. The Comfort is OK. With a Watertightness IP68 (exchange depth: max. 1.5 meters for 30 minutes) the device can withstand a heavy rain shower. The colored LC display With a diagonal of 2.44 centimeters (0.96 inches) can be read very well indoors, but less well in bright ambient light. The font is a bit small in places, but legible for the good eye. Operation is via the Touch button under the screen that responds to light and long presses. You have to get used to it, because the screen invites you to swipe – but it is not a touchscreen and accordingly an input is only made via the button under the screen. The button’s response is good. When Watch replacement The bracelet is only suitable to a limited extent, because it only shows the time if you raise your arm clearly or press the touch button, the rest of the time the screen remains black.
Battery: No cable and five days of running timeLike its predecessor, the Medion Life S3750 does not have a charging cable. The advantage: you only need one for one load USB connectionthat plugs into a power adapter or computer. What is inconvenient about this, however, is that the bracelet has to be removed each time it is charged in order to expose the charging connection. The battery lasted in the practical test with activated heart measurement and sleep tracking five days by, the manufacturer promises a term of up to seven days. The S3750 can also be switched off via the menu on the bracelet.
Fitness functions of the braceletThe sporty functions of the Medion Life 3750 are similar to the previous models, the manufacturer has now made a few improvements:
- Everyday activities: In everyday life, the Medion S3750 measures the heart rate, counts steps and calculates the calories consumed.
- Sleep: At night it records the duration of sleep and roughly the phases of sleep. That worked well in the practical test.
- Training recording by tape: To record a work-out, you can choose between running, walking and cycling modes; other types of training are missing on the tape itself. You start and stop the recording by pressing the button below the display for a long time. During exercise, the tape records movement and heart rate data, but no route.
- The average heart rate After the training, the S3750 determined in the practical test with only minor deviations compared to the reference device – and thus remedies a shortcoming of the predecessor. It is a pity, however: There is still no curve that would clarify when the heartbeat has jumped and how high. However, there is an all-day course curve in the daily overview.
- Training recording via app: The Medion fitness app has even more work-out modes so that the tracker is not only suitable for recording running, cycling and walking. You can find other sports such as yoga, soccer or climbing by tapping on the running man on the home page. You then use the menu to decide whether the tape or the mobile phone records the training, whether the mobile phone should record the distance covered via GPS and whether and which goal you are pursuing (distance, duration or steps). In the practical test, there was no map in the app showing the route covered.
