The C540, the right one for healthy use?
For several years now, Elegiant has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
From this point of view, the C540 is a good choice.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
This C540 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?How is this useful in your daily life?For the C540, this is what you can expect.
Through this model, Elegiant offers an interesting product.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
Fossil says the device will last about 25 days.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.

It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.One last point about the features of this watch is the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
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 allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the C540 is concerned, here’s the thing.
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.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 115 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
A connected watch with which applications
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.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.

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.
