The BL25, the right one for healthy use?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Heropi’s BL25 offers its latest high-end model.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this BL25 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.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.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this BL25 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.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.
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 also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.

Dedicated for everyday use

Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the BL25 could do for you.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It is one of the worst models available on the market today.
It is equipped with a medium battery, 200 mAh.
As for the autonomy, Heropi considers that it will last 20 hours.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.The counterpart to the activation of this mode will be that the battery life will be less.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
This watch recharges normally with the cable supplied.
In spite of interesting features, the watch does not have a touch screen.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.

The watch to improve physical performance?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.We explain what BL25 can do for you.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
With a battery power of 200 mAh, it is in the middle of its category.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.This will allow you to navigate easily, even when you are travelling.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The right model to install applications?

The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.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.
Due to a specific operating system for this watch, you will not be able to download new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
Finally, its 200 mAh battery is in the average.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
