Analysis and handling of the S-Q58-HS-008 from Soding.

In a few words

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

Health follow-up question, what is the S-Q58-HS-008 worth?

Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The design of the S-Q58-HS-008 is impeccable.These sensors allow a fine monitoring of your health.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on Propriétaire or Apple.The use is less intuitive than with other watches.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.
This S-Q58-HS-008 gives you a deep insight into your sleep habits.With its advanced technology, it is able to analyze it, with elements such as tracking noise and movement while you sleep.Through all the tests we were able to do, it appears that this model presents the best score in terms of health monitoring.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.This will allow you to interpret your movements 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.
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.There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

What are its functions for everyday use?

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.This is precisely what the S-Q58-HS-008 test shows.
The model designed by Soding offers an entry-level product.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.This means it can track data such as distance travelled and your route even without a smartphone connected.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
At destination, this watch is not waterproof.
It would have been appreciated if this watch had been sold with a reinforced glass; accidents like scratches happen quickly.
We will regret the absence of a touch screen on this model.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.

The watch to improve physical performance?

The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It is a product with many advantages.Is S-Q58-HS-008 a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
Important for runners, cyclists and other fitness enthusiasts, it has a GPS.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.

However, if you like to listen to your music while you play sports, this watch is to be avoided.

The right choice for downloading applications?

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.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.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.Only those installed by default are available.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
