The watch that tells you about your health?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The S10 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.

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.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with PropriƩtaire or Apple Watchs.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
This model does not have a sleep measurement.
There is no accelerometer on this model of watch connected.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

Interesting for everyday life?

Taoshu almost makes a mistake with this model.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
It is one of the best battery-powered watches, with 480 mAh.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Taoshu didn’t see fit to install it.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, music lovers will appreciate the possibility of listening to music on this model.Contrary to what the skeptics say, this smartwatch is more than an accessory, and you’ll appreciate this feature.

The watch to improve physical performance?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.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.
