The perfect watch for health monitoring?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.From this point of view, the SN87 is a good choice.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This SN87 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
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.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
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.
The right choice every day?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the SN87, this is what you can expect.
Wintory has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.This watch informs you and gives advice.
This model does not have GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
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.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
The smartwatch designed for sports
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 SN87 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
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.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.
The Wintory watch: a good choice to be connected?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
