This article will help you see more clearly.
The perfect watch for health monitoring?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Clearly, the SP is one of the best possible choices.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This SP gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.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.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
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.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the SP, this is what you can expect.
The model designed by Amazfit offers an entry-level product.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
Amazfit opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The smartwatch designed for sports
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.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.We explain what SP can do for you.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
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.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
The watch and possible applications
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
Finally, The SP…
The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
