Analysis and handling of the B083N from Gokoo.

In a few words

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Because it’s important to think twice before buying this type of product, this article will help you see things more clearly.

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The B083N is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this B083N is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire 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.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
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.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the B083N could do for you.
Through this model, Gokoo offers an interesting product.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
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.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
Gokoo opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.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 Gokoortunity to listen to music on this model.That wasn’t planned here.

Gokoo’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the B083N detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

The Gokoo watch: a good choice to be connected?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.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 really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

Finally, The B083N…

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
