A watch connected for health

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The Montre Connectée corresponds to the latest generation of watches.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical 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 allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

A connected and practical watch

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.This is precisely what the Montre Connectée test shows.
Arbily has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
The manufacturer even announces a service life of 30 days.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.So you can safely swim with it.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.

Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.

You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

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

Is it suitable for all needs?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With an average screen size of 1.3 inches, the information is readable.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 a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
