The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.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.
