To start

Connected watches have become powerful.Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.

Several weak points on this watch :
– Little functionality for health monitoring

This article will help you see more clearly.

The B083N, the right one for healthy use?

For several years now, Gokoo has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
Our tests have shown that the B083N is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It may be used for simple information purposes only.

The main disadvantage of this watch still remains its operating system produced by Fossil.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
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.

Interesting for everyday life?

Wondering about the use of a connected watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the B083N, this is what you can expect.
This model belongs is well placed if compared with current smartwatches.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
This model does not have GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tested this last point, but we can take the company at its word.
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 Gokoortunity to listen to music on this model.That wasn’t planned here.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.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 B083N is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.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.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
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.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.

Finally, The B083N…
