Analysis and handling of the B08FT from Gandley.

Foreword

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

The highlights of this connected watch are :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.

Health follow-up question, what is the B08FT worth?

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 B08FT corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Gandley decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
This B08FT gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?For the B08FT, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.It’s almost to an essential element in everyday life.
Although Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 1 hours.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
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.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
Gandley opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
We appreciated the wireless charging function.You place it close to the stand and load it.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Gandleyrtunity to listen to music on this model.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The smartwatch designed for sports

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the B08FT detail.
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.
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.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another advantage of Gandley watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

The watch and possible applications

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.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.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of 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.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

The B08FT – in a nutshell

The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
In a few words, the reasons why it ranks among the top models:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
