A watch connected for health
For several years now, Lige has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Clearly, the P8 is one of the best possible choices.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.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
To find out if you are resting properly during your night, this P8 is a model that provides detailed information on the quality of your sleep.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
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.
With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
What are its functions for everyday use?
Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the P8 test shows.
With this model, Fossil is moving up the rankings.This watch allows you to be busy with anything while staying informed.
As for the autonomy, Lige assures that it will last 15 days.
One of the features that sportsmen and travellers will miss: GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
This watch is designed to be waterproof.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
A practical detail on this P8 is the possibility of wireless charging.You no longer need to plug in a cable to charge it.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.This watch is very comfortable to wear.At 102 grams, this makes it one of the lightest models in its class.
You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Even if the sound isn’t at the perfect level, it’s still an interesting option.
A connected watch for sports
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 P8 is concerned, here’s the thing.
Athletes will find no interest in this new product.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
As for its weight, it’s rather low down in the rankings; its 102 grams make it one of the heaviest 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.
Because the watch has no SIM, only your smartphone will be able to retrieve the tracking data collected.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Another positive point of the Fossil watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
An analysis function of the calories burned is present on this model.
A nice detail on this watch is that you can listen to music.
The Lige watch: a good choice to be connected?
The best connected watches on the market run under Wear OS for Propriétaire or watchOS for Apple, but there are others.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
This model is not well placed in terms of applications.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
Its 1.54-inch screen size will also make it easy for you to read the information.With a contained weight of 102 grams, you’ll forget you’re wearing it on your wrist.
And if you need an application in addition to those installed by default, you will have to turn to another model.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
