Analysis and handling of the KVAF044355_2 from Guigsi.

In presentation

Connected watches have become powerful. 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.

Several weak points on this watch :
– Its weight/size
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

This article will help you see more clearly.

A watch connected for 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The KVAF044355_2 is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this KVAF044355_2 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.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other watches, the manufacturer did not consider it useful to install sleep monitoring on this model.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.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 also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

A connected and practical watch

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the KVAF044355_2 test shows.
Guigsi has designed a model that is cheap and may not meet the needs.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
The thing that will be missing is the battery power, which with its 180 mAh could have been better.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.Not on this watch.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
No wireless charging function on this model; damage.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.You’ll soon forget you’re wearing that watch.It is one of the lightest (95 grams) in this range.
The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.The manufacturer did not consider it necessary to insert it.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A connected watch is for everyone, which means you don’t have to be an extreme runner or jogger to use it.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what KVAF044355_2 can do for you.
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 95 grams, it’s one of the heaviest.
On the battery side, it’s unfortunately bad with only 180 mAh, which induces one of the lowest autonomy among all smartwatches.
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.
Due to the absence of a SIM, you will not be able to track tracking data directly from the wristwatch.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.

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

A connected watch with which applications

There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
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.Only those installed by default are available.
The screen is of sufficient size – 1.3 inches, and the data is displayed correctly.It is one of the very light watches, easy to wear with its 95 grams.
The power of its battery – 180 mAh – is the worst thing about 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.

KVAF044355_2, the right choice for the right use

At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
The few weak points could be:
– Its weight/size
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
