The B08L9, the right one for healthy use?
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.
From this point of view, the B08L9 is a good choice.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this B08L9 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.
This B08L9 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.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 connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the B08L9, this is what you can expect.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
And yet the manufacturer indicates 5 hours of autonomy.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.
Novel tt opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Novel ttrtunity to listen to music on this model.That wasn’t planned here.
The watch to improve physical performance?
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 B08L9 is concerned, here’s the thing.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.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.
However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.
The watch and possible 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.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
The screen is not very pleasant to read; mainly because of its small size of 1.28 inches.Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
B08L9, the right choice for the right use
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
