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.
The watch gt 2 may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Huawei decided to use his own portable operating system.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.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.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
The watch gt 2 unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
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.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the watch gt 2, this is what you can expect.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.It integrates quickly and easily into your daily life.
As for the autonomy, Huawei assures that it will last 14 days.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Huawei didn’t see fit to install it.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
A practical detail on this watch gt 2 is the possibility of wireless charging.The watch is placed on its base, and the battery charging is activated.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.This watch is very comfortable to wear.It is one of the lightest (299 grams) in this range.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.
Huawei’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.We explain what watch gt 2 can do for you.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 299 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
The watch and possible applications
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
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.Only those installed by default are available.
The screen is not very pleasant to read; mainly because of its small size of 1.2 inches.It belongs to the category of lightweight smartwatches: 299 grams.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
The watch gt 2 – in a nutshell
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
