Is the Black compatible with healthy use?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.The Black may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this Black is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.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.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
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 Black test shows.
Through this model, Willful offers an interesting product.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
This model does not have GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
Willful opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.That wasn’t planned here.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the Black 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.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in 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.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
The right model to install 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.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.
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.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
