To start

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary? There is always a new version of a watch a few weeks or months apart, and faced with the number of possible choices, it is complicated to find your way around.

So what we have to remember is this one big strength :
– Its health-oriented functionalities
Several weak points on this watch :
– 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 SW-216 worth?

For several years now, Blackview has been producing connected watches that allow the analysis of fitness and health.They allow you to carry out real health and fitness programs.From this point of view, the SW-216 is a good choice.It is one of the best watches for health monitoring.

Instead of running his watch with a known system, Blackview decided to use his own portable operating system.It will be necessary to get used to the interface before taking full advantage of your watch.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
This SW-216 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.
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.
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.In case you need to have the heartbeat curve, this watch is not recommended as it does not have an ECG sensor.

A connected and practical watch

Are you still sceptical about buying an intelligent watch because you doubt its real need?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the SW-216, this is what you can expect.
In terms of the needs of daily life, Fossil allows this model to meet them well.This watch informs you and gives advice.
Knowing that the autonomy is indicated for 0 hours in standard use.
An absent yet practical feature is a GPS.Too bad Fossil didn’t foresee it.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.So you can safely swim with it.Diving into the aquarium, it was found that it still worked very well.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.And last but not least, because it’s still pleasant, this model allows you to listen to music.It is an option that makes it the ideal everyday accessory.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A connected watch can allow you to keep track of your sporting activity, but not only that.It is a product with many advantages.We explain what SW-216 can do for you.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It does not allow you to follow your evolution in the sport you practice.
Also note that this watch does not have GPS.You will therefore always need to take your smartphone, connected to the watch, to measure and view your journeys.
You will not be able to read the tracking data on your watch; you will have to do this on your smartphone.A disadvantage that turns into an advantage in terms of the battery life that will be extended.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.

You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.

The Blackview 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.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
