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

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Honor’s mns-b19 offers its latest high-end model.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
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.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.For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

Dedicated for everyday use

It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
This watch recharges normally with the cable supplied.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.

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.We explain what mns-b19 can do for you.
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.
It has its own GPS to track location data during a race, or your work day.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
The altimeter function will be useful for those who want to analyse their performance in mountain sports.
Another advantage of Honor watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

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

The right model to install applications?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for PropriƩtaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.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.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
