Analysis and handling of the Sense from Fitbit.

And to begin with…

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

The highlights of this connected watch are :
– Screen size
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

Is the Sense compatible with healthy use?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The Sense corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on PropriƩtaire or Apple.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.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.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.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
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.
With the help of the electrocardiogram function, this model will help you to measure the curve of your heartbeat and be able to control its evolution.

Interesting for everyday life?

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?How is this useful in your daily life?In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this Sense now.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
The screen is protected by reinforced glass.This will prevent small accidents such as scratches.
This watch recharges normally with the cable supplied.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.This watch is very comfortable to wear.At 95 grams, this makes it one of the lightest models in its class.
This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.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.And as far as the Sense is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
With its weight of 95 grams, it is still one of the heaviest watches.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another advantage of Fitbit watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.

The right choice for downloading applications?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
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.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.4 inches.It is one of the lightest watches – 95 grams.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

Finally, The Sense…

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.
