Analysis and handling of the B08FT from Gandley.

As a preamble to this test

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
Its health-oriented functionalities
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 B08FT, the right one for healthy use?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Clearly, the B08FT is one of the best possible choices.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 B08FT is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this B08FT.
The watch’s PropriĆ©taire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
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.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

The right choice every day?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?For the B08FT, this is what you can expect.
Through this model, Gandley offers an interesting product.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
Knowing that the autonomy is indicated for 1 hours in standard use.
This model does not have GPS.Gandley didn’t see fit to install it.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
An indispensable feature of this watch is wireless charging.You place it close to the stand and load it.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.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.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.Here’s the B08FT detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
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.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

The right choice for downloading applications?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
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.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

B08FT, the right choice for the right use

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
Here’s the highlight of this connected watch:

Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
