As an introduction to this analysis
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Screen size|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Few sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.
A watch connected for health
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The B07X2 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this B07X2 is no exception.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.A device that is very useful when you want to track your movements, such as detecting a fall.
For those who need to take their pulse regularly, or follow their heartbeat, this watch is to be proscribed, as it does not have PPG (photoplethysmography).
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Do you need a smart watch?How is this useful in your daily life?This is precisely what the B07X2 test shows.
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.
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.
An important point on the waterproofing side, the manufacturer did not want it to operate underwater.
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.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.It’s a stylish and contemporary watch.It is one of the lightest (95 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.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
A connected watch for sports
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the B07X2 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 95 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.Only the pairing between phone and watch will be able to track the position or distance travelled.
The 3G function is available on this smartwatch with the presence of the SIM.Your smartphone notifications are thus directly accessible on your watch.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
The right choice for downloading 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.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
It is very pleasant to read data displayed on one of the largest screens available – 1.5 inches.It is one of the lightest watches – 95 grams.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
The B07X2 in conclusion
As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Screen size
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
