Analysis and handling of the 2cx from Fzay.

To start

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

The watch that tells you about your health?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Fzay’s 2cx offers its latest high-end model.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
This 2cx gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.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 2cx unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

A connected and practical watch

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 2cx, this is what you can expect.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
As for the autonomy, Fzay assures that it will last 30 days.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.Some users will never use it.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Fzayrtunity to listen to music on this model.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The watch to improve physical performance?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.This tool allows you to combine the advantages of conventional products in a small format and can be connected to other devices such as your phone or laptop.And as far as the 2cx is concerned, here’s the thing.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This functionality is made possible without a smartphone being connected.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.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.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The right model to install applications?

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of 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.
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.

The 2cx in conclusion

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
Here’s the one thing she’s got going for her:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
