The GTO, the right one for healthy use?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Clearly, the GTO 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 GTO is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.
The right choice every day?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?How is this useful in your daily life?For the GTO, this is what you can expect.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.This watch informs you and gives advice.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.Some users will never use it.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.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 touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Contrary to what the skeptics say, this smartwatch is more than an accessory, and you’ll appreciate this feature.
The right model for analyzing his sports activity?
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.And as far as the GTO is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
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.
A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.
The Kospet watch: a good choice to be connected?
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.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 well placed in terms of applications.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.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.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
The GTO in conclusion
As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.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
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
