In a few words

|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|Little functionality for health monitoring|
|Few sport-oriented features|
|The impossibility of putting new applications|
Because it’s important to think twice before buying this type of product, this article will help you see things more clearly.
The watch that tells you about your health?
For several years now, Amazfit has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Our tests have shown that the B07YJ is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
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.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It will then be possible to follow your activity 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 can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Dedicated for everyday use
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the B07YJ, this is what you can expect.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.This watch informs you and gives advice.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
It has an attractive round screen, more so than many other more expensive models.A most elegant design to go with your work outfit, and available in several colours.It can also be adapted to your tastes thanks to the different colours.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.That wasn’t planned here.
Amazfit’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the B07YJ is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.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.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
Is it suitable for all needs?
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.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.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With its large 1.65-inch screen, information is clearly displayed.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
The B07YJ 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.
Here’s the highlight of this connected watch:
– Screen size
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
