A watch connected for health
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Clearly, the B08F is one of the best possible choices.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
Interesting for everyday life?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the B08F test shows.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
Gandley opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Here’s the B08F detail.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.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.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.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.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
The Gandley watch: a good choice to be connected?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Only those installed by default are available.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
B08F, the right choice for the right use
