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 complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The S-Q58-BL-011 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
Instead of running his watch with a known system, Soding decided to use his own portable operating system.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.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.
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.There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
Interesting for everyday life?

This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
It is a correct watch in terms of battery, with 200 mAh.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
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.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
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.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.
Soding’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the S-Q58-BL-011 is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
The battery power of 200 mAh is correct.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.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.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.
A connected watch with which applications
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.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.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of 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.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.For the battery, with its 200 mAh, this watch is powerful enough.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
