Health follow-up question, what is the OKVF041173_P worth?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this OKVF041173_P has a low score for healthy use.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this OKVF041173_P is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
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 OKVF041173_P.
The watch’s PropriĆ©taire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
This watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Interesting for everyday life?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the OKVF041173_P test shows.
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.
Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 7 hours.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Cokil didn’t see fit to install it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
You don’t have a touch screen on this 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.You will have to choose another watch for this.

The smartwatch designed for sports

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.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 OKVF041173_P detail.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Also note that this watch does not have 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.

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

The Cokil 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.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.
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.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
