This article will help you see more clearly.

Health follow-up question, what is the PTH-S8 worth?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The PTH-S8 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
The PTH-S8 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.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the PTH-S8, this is what you can expect.
The model designed by Pthtechus offers an entry-level product.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.This watch is very comfortable to wear.It is one of the lightest (75 grams) in this range.
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 Pthtechusrtunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.

Pthtechus’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.Is PTH-S8 a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 75 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
It includes GPS tracking.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
The 3G function is available on this smartwatch with the presence of the SIM.Your smartphone notifications are thus directly accessible on your watch.

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

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.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
With a contained weight of 75 grams, you’ll forget you’re wearing it on your wrist.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
