Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.
Is the PROBE-2 compatible with healthy use?
Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
The PROBE-2 corresponds to the latest generation of watches.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this PROBE-2 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.
It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
If monitoring your sleep is a priority, you will be interested in this PROBE-2.
The watch’s Propriétaire operating system serves as a sleep monitor.It allows you to monitor your sleep and resting habits.In the end, you know what level of repair your sleep is at.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
Is this watch useful in everyday life?
Do you need a smart watch?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.This is precisely what the PROBE-2 test shows.
Through this model, Kospet offers an interesting product.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.Some users will never use it.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
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.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.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.The NFC option is not integrated in this watch connected, which means no contactless payment.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Kospetrtunity to listen to music on this model.The function is not available here.
A connected watch for sports
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what PROBE-2 can do for you.
This new model is not for those who play sports on a regular basis.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
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.
On the music side, it is also important to specify that this watch does not allow music to be played.
Is it suitable for all needs?
There are different operating systems installed on smartwatches.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.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
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.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.
Finally, The PROBE-2…
The overall score of this watch is among the lowest.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
In the end, here’s a strong point about this model:
– Its health-oriented functionalities
The few weak points could be:
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
