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

The watch that tells you about your health?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
From this point of view, the SW-216 is a good choice.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.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this SW-216 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
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.For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

Interesting for everyday life?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the SW-216 could do for you.
Through this model, Blackview offers an interesting product.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
Knowing that the autonomy is indicated for 0 hours in standard use.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
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.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, music lovers will appreciate the possibility of listening to music on this model.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

Blackview’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.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.And as far as the SW-216 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.

You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.

The right model to install applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.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.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
