Analysis and handling of the D03 from Fzay.

In presentation

Connected watches have become powerful.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

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

The watch that tells you about your health?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
From this point of view, the D03 is a good choice.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this D03 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.Menus and features are less easy to find.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
This D03 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.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.
The D03 unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
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.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the D03 could do for you.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
As for the autonomy, Fzay assures that it will last 30 days.
This model comes standard with GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, we would have appreciated the Fzayrtunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.

A connected watch for sports

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Is D03 a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It includes GPS tracking.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

Is it suitable for all needs?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
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.

The D03 in conclusion

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
