The watch that tells you about your 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 design of the Blue is impeccable.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Ajcoflt decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this Blue is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.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.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.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.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
Interesting for everyday life?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the Blue test shows.
The model designed by Ajcoflt offers an entry-level product.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
The battery power of 150 mAh makes this watch one of the worst.
Among the list of features we would have liked is 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.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
This watch recharges normally with the cable supplied.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.This watch is very comfortable to wear.It is one of the lightest (87 grams) in this range.
It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
The smartwatch designed for sports
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.Here’s the Blue detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 87 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
One of the weak points of this smartwatch is its autonomy; it is one of the lowest at 150 mAh.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
The watch and possible applications
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.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 its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.57 inches.It is one of the lightest watches – 87 grams.
On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 150 mAh of power.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
The Blue in conclusion
The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
Here are a few reasons that summarize its ranking:
– Screen size
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Its weight/size
– Its daily use
