The perfect watch for health monitoring?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this Sport has a low score for healthy use.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this Sport now.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
Even though the manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 1 hours.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.Some users will never use it.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
The screen is protected by reinforced glass.This will prevent small accidents such as scratches.
We appreciated the wireless charging function.You place it close to the stand and load it.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Gandleyrtunity to listen to music on this model.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.However, this will mean a much longer 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 means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
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.
