As an introduction to this analysis
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Screen size|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Its weight/size|
|– Little functionality for health monitoring|
|– Its daily use|
|– Not enough sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
This article will help you see more clearly.
The C19520, 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.
The C19520 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It was clearly not designed to be a tool for monitoring your physical condition.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this C19520 is no exception.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
This connected watch is not equipped with an accelerometer.It will therefore be impossible for you to measure the number of steps you take during the day.
The watch does not have a PPG type heart rate sensor.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Wondering about the use of a connected watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the C19520, this is what you can expect.
This model is not well placed when compared to other smartwatches at the same price.It does not allow this model to meet daily needs.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
Kurio gulli opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
Its touch screen allows you to navigate through the different menus of the watch.It’s an easy watch to wear.Indeed, it is only 85 gr; that is to say, what is lighter.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Last point about the features; this is the music function.That wasn’t planned here.
The smartwatch designed for sports
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the C19520 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.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 85 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.In other words, you should always have your smartphone in sync mode to keep track of your movements.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
Is it suitable for all needs?
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 its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Only those installed by default are available.
Thanks to the large screen size of 1.4 inches, it is no problem to analyze the data displayed.It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 85 grams.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
In short, The C19520, the right choice?
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Screen size
The weak points of this connected watch are :- Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
