In a few words
You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Some of them are oriented towards monitoring physical condition and even go as far as monitoring calories burned, others are more for office automation with e-mail synchronization.
|So what we have to remember is this one big strength :|
|– Its daily use|
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– Few sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
In detail, here is what it is according to the use you will have of it.
Health follow-up question, what is the Sport worth?
Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Our tests have shown that the Sport is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
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.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 model does not have a sleep measurement.
Through the accelerometer, the watch will be able to follow your physical activity.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.This smart watch will be able to identify gestures or actions, which will be analyzed through health applications.
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.With no ECG function, this model does not allow you to see the heartbeat curve.
Interesting for everyday life?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Besides, you don’t know if you’ll need it every day.This is precisely what the Sport test shows.
This model belongs to the top of the range in today’s smartwatches.You’re even gonna wonder how you did it before, when you didn’t have it.
Even though the manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 1 hours.
This model comes standard with GPS.Something that some say is superfluous, but nice.Note by account, that in full GPS mode – with GPS tracking enabled, the watch’s autonomy will last less time.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
The screen has a safety glass.There’s nothing more annoying than seeing a crack after a slight shock.
A practical detail on this Sport is the possibility of wireless charging.The watch is placed on its base, and the battery charging is activated.
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, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.
Gandley’s smartwatch: a good choice for sports?
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.And as far as the Sport is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.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.
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.
Another advantage of Gandley watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
The Gandley watch: a good choice to be connected?
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.More or less complex applications that facilitate measurement or analysis.
This model is not really designed to install 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.
In conclusion, as far as the installation of new applications is concerned, this will not be discussed on this connected watch.However, it remains an interesting product as long as it is easy to use.
The Sport – in a nutshell
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s fast, inexpensive, and easy to replace if you see your need changes.
So what we have to remember is this one big strength:
– Its daily use
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
