As a preamble to this test
The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Screen size|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– Its daily use|
|– Not enough sport-oriented features|

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
A watch connected for health
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Following our tests, this B07W has a low score for healthy use.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The B07W unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
A smartwatch for 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.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the B07W could do for you.
The model designed by Pthtechus offers an entry-level product.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Not on this watch.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
Pthtechus opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.It’s a stylish and contemporary watch.It is one of the lightest (85 grams) in this range.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Pthtechusrtunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The watch to improve physical performance?
A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.And as far as the B07W is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 85 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
The 3G function is available on this smartwatch with the presence of the SIM.This will allow you to retrieve your alerts that initially arrive on your smartphone.
However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.
The watch and possible applications
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.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.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.55 inches.It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 85 grams.
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.
In short, The B07W, the right choice?
The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
