Is the W3 compatible with healthy use?
For several years now, Zkcreation has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The W3 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this W3 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.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.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.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
A smartwatch for everyday life
Do you need a smart watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this W3 now.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.She’ll be able to accompany you on a daily basis.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.Because of its design, you will be able to swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
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.It’s a stylish and contemporary watch.It is one of the lightest (42 grams) in this range.
It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.
A connected watch for sports
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Here’s the W3 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 42 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
Also note that this watch does not have 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.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
A connected watch with which applications
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
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.With a contained weight of 42 grams, you’ll forget you’re wearing it on your wrist.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
Finally, The W3…
