Clearly, the S-Q58-BY-015 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.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.Menus and features are less easy to find.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
For those whose sleep monitoring is a priority, this watch is interesting.It even sends notifications and alerts to a connected device.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 is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.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 can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
