The VI-SW01, the right one for healthy use?

Connected watches have become excellent tools for health analysis, which you would not normally expect from a product like this.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
The VI-SW01 may be a bit outdated today, but it is still a good camera.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

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.This is a different environment from what we are used to seeing.It is only after a short week that you can enjoy the different functions.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.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.
It allows you to monitor your heart rate at all times, to better manage the stress of everyday life and follow its evolution over time.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.

As far as everyday life is concerned, Fossil allows this model to be at the top of the rankings.It’s almost to an essential element in everyday life.
It has the best battery of the moment, with a power of 260 mAh.
Among the list of interesting features is first of all GPS.A detail for some, but not for many.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Next to that, it is advertised to be water-resistant.So you can safely swim with it.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
Vigorun opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
Despite its small size, the touch screen of this smartwatch is easy to use to open the various menus and applications.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Finally, even if it is not essential, we would have appreciated being able to listen to music.That wasn’t planned here.

Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.

If you can’t envisage sport without music, this watch doesn’t allow it.
