The watch that tells you about your health?

For several years now, Soding has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this B08 has a low score for healthy use.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.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 watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.

This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.

In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.You will have to choose another watch for this.

It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 2 inches.The power of its battery – 200 mAh – corresponds to an average value today.
