Foreword

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution.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 :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

Health follow-up question, what is the BW-AT1-R worth?

For several years now, Blitzwolf has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.Blitzwolf’s BW-AT1-R offers its latest high-end model.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

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 are far from the smooth navigation of models with Propriétaire or Apple Watchs.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this BW-AT1-R 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.You will know if you are resting properly during the night, and if the quality of your sleep is regular.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Do you need a smart watch?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the BW-AT1-R test shows.
Blitzwolf has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Blitzwolf didn’t see fit to install it.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.The manufacturer indicates that it has the right watertightness rating, and that you can even immerse it at a depth of several metres.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.
There is no wireless battery charging function.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
In the context of regular use, the absence of a music player will be regretted.The function is not available here.

The watch to improve physical performance?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.And as far as the BW-AT1-R is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
Also note that this watch does not have 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.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
Another advantage of Blitzwolf watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
And even more, it is able to measure the number of calories burned during the day.

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

A connected watch with which applications

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.Associated applications do not allow the same types of use.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
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.
With a screen size of 1.3 inches, it is in the average.In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
