In presentation

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution. 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.

Several weak points on this watch :
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

Health follow-up question, what is the Black worth?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Following our tests, this Black has a low score for healthy use.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
This model is not equipped with photoplethysmography or PPG, which allows precise monitoring of the heart rate.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

The right choice every day?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?How is this useful in your daily life?Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the Black could do for you.
Willful has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
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.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.You will have to choose another watch for this.

Willful’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 relevant choice for many physically active people.Here’s the Black detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
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.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.

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

The Willful watch: a good choice to be connected?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.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.
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.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.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.

In short, The Black, the right choice?

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
