Foreword

Connected watches have become powerful.Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

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

In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.

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.
The S-Q58-BL-004 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this S-Q58-BL-004 is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this S-Q58-BL-004.
The watch’s Propri├ętaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
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.In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

The right choice every day?

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the S-Q58-BL-004, this is what you can expect.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
It is a correct watch in terms of battery, with 200 mAh.
The manufacturer indicates 20 hours of battery life.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
Soding opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the S-Q58-BL-004 is concerned, here’s the thing.
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.
This model has an average battery life of 200 mAh.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
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.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
The power of its battery – 200 mAh – corresponds to an average value today.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.

Finally, The S-Q58-BL-004…

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.On the other hand, you know that with a very attractive price, it can be a simple choice.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
