Is the 205l compatible with healthy use?
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The 205l is a little outdated compared to the latest devices on the market.It may be used for simple information purposes only.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this 205l is no exception.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.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
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.It is possible to analyze and interpret the movements of daily life.In other words, through the identification of a dozen hand gestures, and in correlation with its embedded application, you will have tips to improve your health on a daily basis.
It can monitor your heart rate, movements and then transmit this data to the associated application.
For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.
A smartwatch 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.Here are a few examples of what a smart watch like the 205l could do for you.
Grde has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.It quickly becomes part of your daily life.
It is equipped with a medium battery, 210 mAh.
Fossil indicates that the unit can last about 10 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.So you can safely swim with it.So we left him underwater for a few minutes and nothing to report.
Grde opted for a watch without the reinforced glass option; this is regrettable.
With an intuitive touch screen, you will be able to access the various functions of the watch.You will not be able to shop with this watch because it does not have the NFC contactless function.
Finally, and still for regular use, you have here the music function.Contrary to what the skeptics say, this smartwatch is more than an accessory, and you’ll appreciate this feature.
A connected watch for sports
A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It is a relevant choice for many physically active people.And as far as the 205l is concerned, here’s the thing.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.Even for the occasional sportsman, this watch won’t do.
The battery power of 210 mAh is correct.
It includes GPS tracking.GPS support is relatively simple and will allow you to track your position even without a paired phone.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.In return for this inconvenience, you will have an extended battery life.
In addition, this smartwatch has a sensor for measuring heartbeats.
And even better, with this watch you will be able to know how many calories you burn each day.
You will also be able to listen to music with this smartwatch.
A connected watch with which applications
Depending on the type of smartwatch and its operating system, you will be able to install or use applications.This influences the number of applications that can be added, and the practical functionality that will result.There are health applications, other sport-oriented applications, or applications that meet the needs of everyday life.
Due to its configuration, this smartwatch limits the addition of new applications.
This watch works with a specific operating system, making it impossible to add new applications.You will need to make sure that the applications installed by default are suitable for you.
With an average screen size of 1.3 inches, the information is readable.It has a 210 mAh battery with sufficient power.
Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.However, it remains a simple and cheap product for basic uses.
