As an introduction to this analysis

Connected watches have become powerful.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 :
– Its weight/size
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

The watch that tells you about your health?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Our tests have shown that the id205 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this id205 is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.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.There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

The right choice every day?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the id205 could do for you.
Through this model, Grde offers an interesting product.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
It is a correct watch in terms of battery, with 210 mAh.
Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 15 hours.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
Grde opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.Its weight is very low, 136 grams, less than on comparable models.
This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Grdertunity to listen to music on this model.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Is id205 a new electronic gadget?
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 136 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
The battery power of 210 mAh is correct.
It includes GPS tracking.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
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.
With an average screen size of 1.3 inches, the information is readable.It is one of the lightest watches – 136 grams.
For the battery, with its 210 mAh, this watch is powerful enough.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

What about the id205?

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
