This article will help you see more clearly.

Health follow-up question, what is the ETX001 worth?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Our tests have shown that the ETX001 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this ETX001 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.Menus and features are less easy to find.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the ETX001 could do for you.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
Edtouch opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.This watch is very comfortable to wear.Its weight is very low, 62 grams, less than on comparable models.
The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

Edtouch’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

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.And as far as the ETX001 is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 62 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
The 3G function is available on this smartwatch with the presence of the SIM.This will allow you to retrieve your alerts that initially arrive on your smartphone.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

A connected watch with which applications

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With a contained weight of 62 grams, you’ll forget you’re wearing it on your wrist.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

Finally, The ETX001…

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
