Analysis and handling of the 205G from Fkant.

To start

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary? 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.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

Is the 205G compatible with healthy use?

For several years now, Fkant has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
From this point of view, the 205G is a good choice.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 205G is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.It will then be possible to follow your activity 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.There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

The right choice every day?

Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the 205G could do for you.
Fkant has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
This model comes standard with GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Contrary to what the skeptics say, this smartwatch is more than an accessory, and you’ll appreciate this feature.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the 205G detail.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Another advantage of Fkant watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

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

Is it suitable for all needs?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
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.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

The 205G in conclusion

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
