The watch that tells you about your health?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The B08L9 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.
The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this B08L9.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
Dedicated for everyday use
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the B08L9 test shows.
Novel tt has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.She’s a long way from Apple Watch.
Knowing that the autonomy is indicated for 5 hours in standard use.
This model does not have GPS.Not on this watch.
It should be remembered that it is not designed to operate underwater.

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the B08L9 is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
There is a good chance that sportsmen and women who want to stay as light as possible will regret the absence of GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.

Due to a screen size of 1.28 inches, some will have difficulty reading and analyzing the data displayed.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
