The watch that tells you about your health?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Our tests have shown that the B082 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this B082 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.
The B082 unfortunately does not have accelerometer-type components.It’s impossible to know how many calories you burn every day.
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).
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
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the B082 test shows.
When it comes to everyday life, one wonders what the fossil was thinking.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
One of the features that will delight sportsmen and women is the presence of GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.Its weight is very low, 85 grams, less than on comparable models.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.The function is not available here.
The right model for analyzing his sports activity?
A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.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 B082 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.
You’re unlikely to forget it when you have it on your wrist, because at 85 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.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.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
