Analysis and handling of the SW37 from Prixton.

Foreword

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected. 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 :
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

The SW37, the right one for healthy use?

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 SW37 is a good choice.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Prixton decided to use his own portable operating system.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.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 SW37 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.This will allow you to interpret your movements 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 allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the SW37, this is what you can expect.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
This model comes standard with GPS.Some users will never use it.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.

A connected watch for sports

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Here’s the SW37 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
The watch works with 3G technology.Mobile connectivity not only provides access to location, but also allows the device to retrieve notifications and alerts from the network to your smartphone.
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.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.

A connected watch with which applications

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
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.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

Finally, The SW37…

The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
