As an introduction to this analysis

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 :
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

Is the ID216 compatible with healthy use?

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.From this point of view, the ID216 is a good choice.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This ID216 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Interesting for everyday life?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this ID216 now.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.This watch informs you and gives advice.
As for the autonomy, Grde assures that it will last 40 days.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Grde didn’t see fit to install it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.So you can safely swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The smartwatch designed for sports

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.We explain what ID216 can do for you.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.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.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.

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

The Grde 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 well placed in terms of applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
