– Its weight/size
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

Is the B089G compatible with healthy use?

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The B089G is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on PropriƩtaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.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.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.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.
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.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

Interesting for everyday life?

Do you need a smart watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the B089G could do for you.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.This watch informs you and gives advice.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.This watch is very comfortable to wear.Indeed, it is only 95 gr; that is to say, what is lighter.
The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
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.

The watch to improve physical performance?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the B089G is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
With its weight of 95 grams, it is still one of the heaviest watches.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.

An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.

The right model to install applications?

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.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.It belongs to the category of lightweight smartwatches: 95 grams.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

What about the B089G?

The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
The few weak points could be:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
