Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
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about your physical condition.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.The Rosa is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
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.
Dedicated for everyday use
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the Rosa, this is what you can expect.
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.
The battery has a power of 170 mAh, making it one of the lowest today.
Although Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 6 hours.
This model comes standard with GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Because of its design, you will be able to 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.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.
The right model for analyzing his sports activity?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the Rosa is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
One of the weak points of this smartwatch is its autonomy; it is one of the lowest at 170 mAh.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
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.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.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 really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Thanks to the large screen size of 1.4 inches, it is no problem to analyze the data displayed.On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 170 mAh of power.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
What about the Rosa?
To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Screen size
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
