Foreword

The technology industry of connected watches is a sector in continuous evolution. There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– The size of his screen
– Its weight/size
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

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

A watch connected for health

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
From this point of view, the C540 is a good choice.It was clearly not designed to be the ideal tool for monitoring your health.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Elegiant decided to use his own portable operating system.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.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.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical 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 allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

A smartwatch for everyday life

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?How is this useful in your daily life?For the C540, 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.
As for the autonomy, Elegiant assures that it will last 25 days.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Not on this watch.
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.
You will have to pay attention to the level of the screen which does not have reinforced glass.
This watch is charged the old fashioned way, with the cable provided in the package.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.It’s an easy watch to wear.Its weight is very low, 115 grams, less than on comparable models.
This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.The built-in player will make you appreciate this item even more.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

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.Is C540 a new electronic gadget?
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
In terms of weight, this smartwatch is not well placed; at 115 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
A negative point to note is the lack of a built-in GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.

A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.

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.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Apart from those installed at the start, no other choice.
You’ll have to concentrate on reading the information on this 1.28-inch screen, which is one of the smallest.It is one of the lightest watches – 115 grams.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

What about the C540?

As you can see, this watch is not one of the best.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
