As a preamble to this test
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Its health-oriented functionalities|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Few sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
Because it’s important to think twice before buying this type of product, this article will help you see things more clearly.
The 2019, the right one for healthy use?
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Clearly, the 2019 is one of the best possible choices.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this 2019 is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this 2019.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.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.
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.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the 2019 test shows.
Zagzog has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.This watch informs you and gives advice.
This model does not have GPS.Zagzog didn’t see fit to install it.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
The menus are accessible only with the buttons.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.
The smartwatch designed for sports
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the 2019 is concerned, here’s the thing.
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.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
An interesting point about this smartwatch, is the presence of an audio player.
Is it suitable for all needs?
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.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
