Analysis and handling of the B08D from Gokoo.

And to begin with…

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.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 health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its daily use
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

Is the B08D compatible with healthy use?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Clearly, the B08D is one of the best possible choices.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 B08D is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
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.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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 allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

A connected and practical watch

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the B08D could do for you.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
The battery has a power of 170 mAh, making it one of the lowest today.
Although Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 6 hours.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.Gokoo didn’t see fit to install it.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
An indispensable feature of this watch is wireless charging.The watch is placed on its base, and the battery charging is activated.
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.Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

Gokoo’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the B08D detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
On the battery side, it’s unfortunately bad with only 170 mAh, which induces one of the lowest autonomy among all smartwatches.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Another positive point of the Fossil 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.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The right choice for downloading applications?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.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 its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 170 mAh of power.
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.

Finally, The B08D…

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
