Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough sport-oriented features

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

Is the Connectée compatible with healthy use?

For several years now, Glymnis has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
From this point of view, the Connectée is a good choice.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.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 Connectée.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

This model comes standard with GPS.Some users will never use it.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.

The watch to improve physical performance?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the Connectée is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.

The Glymnis watch: a good choice to be connected?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
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.

In short, The Connectée, the right choice?
