A watch connected for health
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The 17-LIFEBEENY 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 Propriétaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.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 allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.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.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 also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

The battery has an average power of 200 mAh.An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on 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.In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.The function is not available here.

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.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
