And to begin with…
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.
|The highlights of this connected watch are :|
|Its health-oriented functionalities|
|Its daily use|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|Not enough sport-oriented features|
|The impossibility of putting new applications|
In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.
The perfect watch for health monitoring?
For several years now, Hafury 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.
From this point of view, the B087R is a good choice.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this B087R is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
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 connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this B087R now.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
It is one of the models with a high-performance battery, 210 mAh, among the best.
Fossil says the device will last about 10 days.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Hafury didn’t see fit to install it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.That wasn’t planned here.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
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.We explain what B087R can do for you.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
It has a very good autonomy with a battery power of 210 mAh.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
The right model to install applications?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.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 210 mAh battery is the best today.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
Finally, The B087R…
Our tests have shown us that this model is a good compromise.It doesn’t have all the capabilities of the best models, but it is much cheaper.
In short, it has many strong points; here is what we can retain among them:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
