Analysis and handling of the Sense from Fitbit.

To start

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected. There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.

The highlights of this connected watch are :
– Screen size
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– 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 Sense worth?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The Sense corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this Sense is no exception.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.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this Sense is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
And for monitoring over a period of time, it has an ECG function, you can perform electrocardiograms on your screen to know your heart rate in detail.

The right choice every day?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the Sense could do for you.
Fitbit has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Not on this watch.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
The screen has a safety glass.You will reduce the risk of breakage and scratches.
This watch recharges normally with the cable supplied.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.It’s an easy watch to wear.Its weight is very low, 95 grams, less than on comparable models.
It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, music lovers will appreciate the possibility of listening to music on this model.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what Sense can do for you.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
With its weight of 95 grams, it is still one of the heaviest watches.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another advantage of Fitbit watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.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.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
With its large 1.4-inch screen, information is clearly displayed.It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 95 grams.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

Finally, The Sense…

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
In short, it has many strong points; here is what we can retain among them:
– Screen size
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its weight/size
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
