Is the rose 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 complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
From this point of view, the rose is a good choice.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this rose is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this rose.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.This will allow you to interpret your movements 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.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the rose test shows.
The model designed by Gokoo offers an entry-level product.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
With only 180 mAh, this watch is equipped with one of the least powerful batteries.
Among the list of features we would have liked is GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
Gokoo 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.It’s an easy watch to wear.It is one of the lightest (118 grams) in this range.
It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.The function is not available here.
The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?
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 rose is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 118 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
It is one of the watches with the lowest battery life of 180 mAh.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include 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.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
Is it suitable for all needs?
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not really designed to install new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With an average screen size of 1.3 inches, the information is readable.It is one of the lightest watches – 118 grams.
On the battery side, it is one of the worst watches with its 180 mAh of power.
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 rose, the right choice?
