So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– The size of his screen
– Not enough sport-oriented features

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

The watch that tells you about your health?

For several years now, Fkant has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
From this point of view, the 999 is a good choice.For a healthy orientation, this watch is undoubtedly one of the best choices you can make.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.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.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this 999.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It is possible to analyze it from parameters such as noise or movement at night.The watch tracks your sleep just like a monitor from which you can analyze the results.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
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.

A connected and practical watch

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the 999 test shows.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.Some users will never use it.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
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 tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
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.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.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.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.

The connected watch that will delight sportsmen and women?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a product with many advantages.Is 999 a new electronic gadget?
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.

The Fkant 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.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.
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.Only those installed by default are available.
With this small 1.1-inch screen, it’s not easy to get a good view of the information provided.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

The 999 in conclusion
