Analysis and handling of the PROBE-2 from Kospet.

Foreword

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution. There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
Not enough sport-oriented features
The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The perfect watch for health monitoring?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Clearly, the PROBE-2 is one of the best possible choices.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring 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.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
This PROBE-2 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.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.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

A connected and practical watch

Do you need a smart watch?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the PROBE-2 test shows.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.This watch informs you and gives advice.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
Kospet opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Kospetrtunity to listen to music on this model.That wasn’t planned here.

The smartwatch designed 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 product with many advantages.We explain what PROBE-2 can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.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.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

The watch and possible applications

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
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.

The PROBE-2 in conclusion

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
