As an introduction to this analysis
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Its daily use|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Few sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
A watch connected for health
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Our tests have shown that the t-rex is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
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 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.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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.
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?
Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this t-rex now.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
It is one of the best battery-powered watches, with 390 mAh.
The manufacturer provides 66 days of autonomy.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.Some users will never use it.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.Contrary to what the skeptics say, this smartwatch is more than an accessory, and you’ll appreciate this feature.
A connected watch for sports
A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a product with many advantages.Is t-rex a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
Its battery has one of the best autonomies with 390 mAh on the battery.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
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.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
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.Finally, its 390 mAh battery is the best today.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
