This article will help you see more clearly.
A watch connected for health
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The B083 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this B083 is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this B083 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.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
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.This is precisely what the B083 test shows.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
The battery power is not the best, 200 mAh, corresponding to an average power.
This model does not have GPS.Not on this watch.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The function is not available here.
The right model for analyzing his sports activity?
A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the B083 detail.
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.
With a battery power of 200 mAh, it is in the middle of its category.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another advantage of Lifebee watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.
The watch and possible applications
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
For the battery, with its 200 mAh, this watch is powerful enough.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
In short, The B083, the right choice?
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.
Here’s the highlight of this connected watch:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
