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.
The h205l corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This h205l gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
A connected and practical watch
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the h205l test shows.
Through this model, Fitpolo offers an interesting product.This watch informs you and gives advice.
It is equipped with a medium battery, 210 mAh.
The manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 10 hours.
This model comes standard with GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
No security glass has been fitted to 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.Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
The right model for analyzing his sports activity?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the h205l detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The battery is in the average range with a power of 210 mAh.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
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.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
The right choice for downloading applications?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.It has a 210 mAh battery with sufficient power.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
Finally, The h205l…
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
