Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
The watch that tells you about your health?
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The B07FD is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.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.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
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.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.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the B07FD test shows.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
This model comes standard with GPS.Some users will never use it.The counterpart of this option is that the range will decrease if the active GPS mode is still selected.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.Its weight is very low, 65 grams, less than on comparable models.
This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.
A connected watch 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.Is B07FD a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 65 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
The presence of the SIM in this watch makes 3G connection possible.You will thus be able to receive your notifications directly on the watch.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
The watch and possible applications
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 2.9 inches.It belongs to the category of lightweight smartwatches: 65 grams.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
