Analysis and handling of the B08FT from Gandley.

As a preamble to this test

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.

The highlights of this connected watch are :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.

Is the B08FT compatible with healthy use?

For several years now, Gandley has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Gandley’s B08FT offers its latest high-end model.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Gandley decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this B08FT.
The watch’s PropriĆ©taire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.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.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.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.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the B08FT, this is what you can expect.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
And yet the manufacturer indicates 1 hours of autonomy.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.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.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
An ingenious feature on this B08FT is the ability to recharge wirelessly.You put it on its stand, and it charges.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.

Gandley’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.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.Here’s the B08FT detail.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.

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

The Gandley watch: a good choice to be connected?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.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 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.
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.

Finally, The B08FT…

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
