Analysis and handling of the DW21 from Doubwin.

To start

Nowadays, there are several hundred watches connected. 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 daily use
Several weak points on this watch :
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Because it’s important to think twice before buying this type of product, this article will help you see things more clearly.

The watch that tells you about your health?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They complement or replace the fitness monitoring devices you may be familiar with.
The DW21 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this DW21 is no exception.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
Count a few days before you know how to use it perfectly.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
Having an accelerometer, the watch will be able to monitor your physical health.This will allow you to interpret your movements during the day.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
With this model, you will not be able to measure your heart rate.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

Is this watch useful in everyday life?

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.In detail, we help you understand whether it makes sense to buy this DW21 now.
Doubwin almost makes a mistake with this model.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
It has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 450 mAh.
This model does not have GPS.Not on this watch.
In case you forget to take off your watch while taking a shower, no problem.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Last point about the features; this is the music function.That wasn’t planned here.

Doubwin’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.Here’s the DW21 detail.
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
Its battery has one of the best autonomies with 450 mAh on the battery.
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.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.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.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
Finally, its 450 mAh battery is the best today.And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.

Finally, The DW21…

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.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its daily use
Here are a few weak points to watch out for:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
