The watch that tells you about your health?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The Smart Watch is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this Smart Watch is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.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.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
Is this watch useful in everyday life?
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the Smart Watch, this is what you can expect.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
The thing that will be missing is the battery power, which with its 170 mAh could have been better.
This model comes standard with GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The watch to improve physical performance?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Here’s the Smart Watch detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
It is one of the watches with the lowest battery life of 170 mAh.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
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.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.
Is it suitable for all needs?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.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.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.Finally, its 170 mAh battery, due to its lack of power, may require regular recharging.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
