A watch connected for health
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The B08JY is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this B08JY is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.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.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.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?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this B08JY now.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.It integrates quickly and easily into your daily life.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Not on this watch.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
We appreciated the wireless charging function.You place it close to the stand and load it.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.
The smartwatch designed for sports
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Here’s the B08JY detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
With the altimeter function, the analysis of efforts on mountain sports will be facilitated.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
One of the interesting features of this watch is the possibility to listen to music.
The right model to install applications?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install new 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.
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 an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
What about the B08JY?
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:
– Its daily use
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
