Analysis and handling of the BGF EU 301 BU from Bingofit.

Foreword

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

For several years now, Bingofit 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.
Clearly, the BGF EU 301 BU is one of the best possible choices.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this BGF EU 301 BU is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.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.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this BGF EU 301 BU.
The watch’s Propriétaire 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.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

The right choice every day?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the BGF EU 301 BU could do for you.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
With only 180 mAh, this watch is equipped with one of the least powerful batteries.
Even though the manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 7 hours.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
Bingofit opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.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.The function is not available here.

Bingofit’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the BGF EU 301 BU detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It is a watch with a very low autonomy, because of its 180 mAh battery.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

Is it suitable for all needs?

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.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 180 mAh of power.
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.
