The watch that tells you about your health?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The P22 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.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 will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this P22 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.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.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Dedicated for everyday use

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.For the P22, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
Although Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 0 hours.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Iporachx didn’t see fit to install it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
Iporachx opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
We appreciated the wireless charging function.The watch is placed on its base, and the battery charging is activated.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

The smartwatch designed for sports

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.Is P22 a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.

One of the interesting features of this watch is the possibility to listen to music.

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.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.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.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With an average screen size of 1.4 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 an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

In short, The P22, the right choice?

Our tests have shown us that this model is a good compromise.The P22 doesn’t reach the Apple Watch heights, but it remains a good choice.Here are a few highlights to remember about this smartwatch; it ranks among the best for :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
– Its daily use
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
